Masking in district facilities is OPTIONAL.
Everyday, before coming to school, we ask parents/guardians to check and ask their child if they have any of the following symptoms and/or exposure.
What are the symptoms of concern?
- Fever (100.4 degrees) or chills
- Shortness of breath
- Lack of appetite
- Muscle or body aches
- Red itchy, watery eyes
- Persistent earache
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat/swollen glands
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
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 use of medication for 24 hours.
Students who have recently had close contact with a person with COVID-19 to monitor their health for 7-10 days after exposure.
If you test positive for COVID-19
It is recommended that anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 isolate at home and away from others for at least FIVE DAYS after testing positive. Isolation can end once symptoms have resolved, which may take longer than five-day minimum. Once isolation has ended, it is recommended that a mask be worn around others for at least five days.
Springfield Public Schools does not have any testing sites or testing kits at this time.
