Just a reminder that children who exhibit symptoms of Covid-19 may not attend school. If your child has symptoms of Covid-19 and will therefore be absent, please email email@example.com and PMSAbsence@hcpss.org. By emailing both of these places, Ms. Blouse, our nurse, will be able to assist you with the proper procedures to follow, and your child’s absence will be documented as an excused illness.
This answer varies based on whether or not your child is fully vaccinated, and whether or not your child has any Covid-19 symptoms. Click here for HCPSS' quarantine procedures for students.
