Black River continues to follow the Health Department's recommendations for Covid-19 contact tracing, quarantining, and isolation. Although there have been some changes to the flowchart the attached document will help guide families on our current policies and procedures.
We will continue to follow the Flowchart for Symptomatic Individuals on page 8 when determining exclusion from school. If a student or staff member exhibits one symptom from the left column or two symptoms from the right column they will be required to remain home until they receive a negative Covid-19 test result from an official lab, or alternate diagnosis from a medical professional, regardless of whether they were a close contact to a positive case. If they are unable to obtain one of these two they will then need to isolate at home until 10 days have passed from symptom onset. This school policy aligns with the recommendations outlined in the flowchart on page 8. Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to work for the health and safety of everyone at Black River.
