5 Day Isolation Positive COVID, Pool Testing, Vaccine Clinic
December 29, 2021
Happy Wednesday! I share a few updates about COVID protocols and reminders of opportunities for pool testing and vaccinations.
COVID Positive 5 Day Isolation
In accordance with today’s DPH and DESE information, we will follow the CDC guideline for all individuals testing positive after December 23:
If You Test Positive for COVID-19 (Isolate) Regardless of Vaccination Status:
- Stay home for 5 days
- If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave your house.
- Continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.
If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves.

We expect to pool test as many students as possible on Monday. It is an enormous resource that can assist us in managing the surge. If you have not given consent to test your child we urge you to consider participating. You can enroll your child at: Electronic Consent Form
Staff Masks and Antigen Tests
As you may have heard through the media, we are very fortunate to benefit from state provided KN95 masks and antigen tests for all staff that will be distributed prior to our return on Monday.
Close Contacts and Contact Tracing
The state notified us today that DESE and DPH are reviewing the CDC guidance. They will have updates to school districts by the weekend.
Please continue to use the COVID email account during the break as needed: firstname.lastname@example.org
Current district case counts are available in real time on the COVID Dashboard.
Have a great night!
