5 Day Isolation Positive COVID, Pool Testing, Vaccine Clinic

December 29, 2021

Dear Families:

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.

Pool Testing 

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:


Current district case counts are available in real time on the COVID Dashboard.


Have a great night!
