Exposure, Testing, Reporting, and Returning to School

Below are our student health protocols for students who are exposed to COVID-19, have symptoms and/or are diagnosed with COVID-19. The primary line of defense in limiting exposure to and slowing the spread of COVID-19 is the daily at-home Student Health Screening Questionnaire.

Please notify the principal/assistant principal at covid19@ololjaguars.org immediately if your child or anyone in your household has been in close contact with or exposed to an individual with COVID-19. Based on the circumstance(s) of exposure (see below), your child may be asked to stay home from school for a designated period of time, during which he/she can attend class remotely.

  • What counts as close contact or exposure?
    • Your child or someone in your household was within 6 feet of someone who has COVID-19 for at least 15 minutes within 2 days BEFORE they developed symptoms or tested positive for COVID-19.
    • Your child or someone in your household provided care at home to someone who is sick with COVID-19.
    • Your child or someone in your household had direct physical contact with the person (touched, hugged, or kissed them).
    • Your child or someone in your household shared eating or drinking utensils with someone who is sick with COVID-19.
    • Someone sick with COVID-19 sneezed, coughed, or somehow got respiratory droplets on your child or someone in your household.

If any student or a household contact falls into one of these exposure categories, he/she must stay home and the Principal/Assistant Principal must be immediately notified at covid19@ololjaguars.org. Please inform your child’s health care provider, have him/her tested immediately, and closely monitor his/her health. Your child’s pediatrician and/or the school will recommend keeping him/her home from school for a certain number of days based on CDC recommendations.

Post-Infection Return to Campus

Students may return to campus after quarantining at home depending on the nature of exposure, test results, and whether or not he/she had symptoms.

  • Post-infection testing results are no longer required to return to school.
  • A return-to-school note must be provided when the student has been medically cleared by his/her pediatrician. Students will not be allowed to return to campus after a COVID-19 infection without medical clearance.
  • Only nasal swab testing is considered adequate. Blood tests for antibodies to COVID-19 will not be accepted.
