If we become aware that a student or staff member has tested positive for COVID-19, the school will notify all families whose students had exposure to the person having a positive test. Please note that “exposure” alone does not require quarantine. The OC Health Department will conduct contact tracing to determine if any students had “close contact” with the person who tested positive, and will assess whether they are at low, medium, or high risk of contracting the coronavirus. Please know that there may be a lag in time between receiving the notice and receiving contact by the Health Department. There will be flexibility for parents to keep their child home during this period of time if the parent is concerned about them returning to the classroom. The Health Department will provide direction on whether to monitor, get tested, or quarantine after they complete their contact tracing.
