Helpful Quick Tips:
If your child is showing signs of a runny nose, fever, or cough, you may return to school with a doctors note or lab confirmed negative COVID-19 result. Otherwise, you must be symptom free without medication for 72 hours (3 days). If a member of your household tests positive for COVID-19, we ask that you and any children attending preschool, quarantine for the recommended 14 day period.
We know that allergies are hitting hard in the Austin and surrounding areas during this season, so thank you for being patient and precautious.
If you have COVID-19 symptoms OR have been around any persons testing positive for COVID, we ask that you quarantine for 14 days from the onset of symptoms or the date of contact with said person. To return earlier, you must follow the above guidleines.
A fever is 100.0 for this period of time, even though our Handbook states 100.4.
