    • Sore throat/swollen glands
    • Shortness of breath,
    •  Runny nose or congestion

    • Headache
    • Muscle pain
    • Lack of appetite
    • Loss of taste or smell
    • Red, itchy, watery eyes

    • Students who have recently had close contact with a person with COVID-19, monitor their health until 7-10 days after their last exposure.  
    • 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 
    • 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 use of medication for 24 hours.
