     Lack of appetite
     Loss of taste or smell
     Red, itchy, watery eyes
     Persistent earache
     Close contact with a person with COVID-19 in the last 14 days
     Students who have had any of the above symptoms in the past 24 hours to stay 
    home from school and/or until symptoms resolve without medication to relieve 
    symptom(s).
     Students who have taken any fever-reducing medications such as Tylenol or 
    Ibuprofen in the past 24 hours to stay home until they are fever-free without the
