COVID Protocol Update
Hello Dysart parents and guardians,
 
It was so great to see our students back from Spring Break yesterday! Today we would like to provide you with an update regarding our COVID-19 quarantine procedures.  As a reminder, any student who has tested positive for COVID-19 must be in isolation for 10 days beginning with the onset of symptoms, or from the day the positive test was taken. The student may return after 10 days or until they are 24-hours fever free without any medication.  Any student who was in direct contact with an individual who tests positive for COVID-19 will be assigned to quarantine for 10 days after the last date of contact with this individual.  

Beginning this week, we have adopted the new CDC-approved option that states parents may choose to shorten the length of the COVID-19 quarantine period for those with a direct contact, with proof of a negative PCR or ANTIGEN test result. Students may return to school on day 8 ONLY if a negative PCR or ANTIGEN test is taken on day 6 or 7 of the assigned quarantine. Parents are asked to provide the negative test results to the health office for review. Once approved, the student may return to school on day 8 instead of day 11. Please note this option applies only to those that have been in direct contact with someone who has tested positive.  
Anyone who has tested positive must remain in isolation for the full 10 days, or until they are symptom free for 24 hrs.

We thank you for your continued support, and are encouraged that our active case numbers have drastically improved over the last several months with everyone's help and cooperation.
