HEALTHY KIDS LEARN BETTER!
School nursing, a specialized practice of nursing, protects and promotes student health, facilitates optimal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders who bridge health care and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potential.  National Association of School Nurses 2017

RETURN TO SCHOOL AFTER ILLNESS

WCSD follows the NYSDOH guidance for return to school after a student or staff member exhibits symptoms associated with COVID-19: fever, chills, loss of taste or smell, shortness of breath, cough, sore throat, fatigue, nasal congestion, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, and body aches.

If your child is experiencing any of these symptoms, they may return to school when they meet the all of the following criteria:

1. test negative for COVID-19
2. have been fever-free for at least 24 hours without medication
3. exhibit significant improvement of symptoms

You may call your school's main office if you need home test kits. You may also call the school nurse to arrange testing in school.

IF YOUR CHILD TESTS POSITIVE FOR COVID-19:
1. Notify the school nurse immediately
2. Isolate your child at home for a minimum of 5 days
3. Your child may return to school on day 6-10 of isolation if

a.  Remains fever-free for at least 24 hrs without mediation
b.  Symptoms are significantly improved or resolved
c.  Able to wear a well-fitting mask over the mouth and nose through day 10
d.  Is cleared by the school nurse

Students who do not meet this criteria need to stay home through day 10 and may return on day 11.

IF YOUR CHILD IS EXPOSED TO COVID-19
The NYSDOH strongly recommends that your child:

1. Wear a well fitting mask over the mouth and nose in school and on the bus for 10 days following exposure
2. Test for COVID-19 as soon as you learn of exposure and then at least 5 days after the exposure date
3. If it is a household exposure or your child is not fully vaccinated, test every other day or everyday
4. Students who are not fully vaccinated should quarantine at home for the first 5 days if they do not test at least every other day.
5. If your child develops symptoms at any time during the 10 days following exposure, please keep your child home, test for COVID-19 and consult with your school nurse.
6. Notify your school nurse immediately if your child tests positive.

 

Thank you for adhering to these NYSDOH School Guidelines so we can keep our schools healthy!
