COVID 19 SAFETY
Prior to coming to MRS school, parents of students should conduct daily symptom checks and stay at home if they are sick and do not feel well. List of symptoms can be found here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html
Currently, CDC guidance for fully vaccinated people recommends universal indoor masking for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status.
Students, parents and MRS staff will wear masks while inside buildings.
Masks can be removed when eating and drinking, maintaining six feet of physical distancing (when possible).
If there is a positive COVID-19 case in school, the school will send a confidential email to families whose child is considered a close contact.
If your child is exposed to anyone at school, they may be considered a Close Contact, depending on their proximity and duration of exposure. The general definition of a Close Contact continues to be someone within 6 feet of someone with COVID-19 for 15 minutes or more in a 24-hour period.
Per the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention's K-12 indoor classroom setting exception, a student would not be considered Close Contact or need to quarantine if all three of the following conditions are met:
The student was not within fewer than 3 feet of the positive individual for over 15 minutes total in a 24-hour period.
The student and the positive individual have been wearing their masks consistently and correctly.
The school is following all layered mitigation strategies.
If your child is considered a Close Contact, there are two quarantining options:
Quarantine for 10 days after student’t last exposure. No test is required to end quarantine. Monitor for symptoms until 14 days after the last exposure.
Quarantine and get tested for COVID-19 6 or 7 days after your last exposure. If your child’s test is negative, you could end quarantine after 7 days. You must have your child’s negative test result before ending quarantine and the test cannot be before day 6. Monitor your child’s for symptoms until 14 days after the last exposure.
Frequent usage of hand sanitizer and/or sanitizer wipes are highly recommended.
The water fountain is unavailable; please bring a pre-filled water bottle for the class, if needed.
Thank you for your patience and continued support! We are very excited to restart our program and see each other soon!
