  • COVID-19

    August 11, 2022
    We are providing the following information about COVID-19 as students and staff head back to school.

    According to Johnson County Department of Health and Environment, COVID is on the list with other communicable diseases, such as influenza, mumps, and varicella (chickenpox).

    Students and staff will only be excluded from school and work if they report to the school they are COVID positive (test or physician-diagnosed).

    Recommendations include an exclusion for five (5) days after the onset of symptoms or the date of diagnosis/test. It is recommended, but not required, for individuals to wear a mask on days 6-10 upon their return. Any individual who is sick is encouraged to stay home. Individuals need to be fever-free without the aid of fever-reducing medication for 24 hours to remain or return to school.
