Health Monitoring of Your Student
Families are expected to monitor the health of their children. Parents or guardians will need to notify the school if their child is symptomatic or has had possible exposure to COVID-19. If anyone in your household has had a possible exposure to COVID-19 and is being tested, please quarantine your student until test results are received.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) continues to update COVID-19 guidelines including recommended quarantine guidelines. Le Monde International School will utilize guidelines provided by The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) if practical and appropriate for local conditions.
Definitions: Isolation or Quarantine
Students, staff, and educators diagnosed with COVID-19 must isolate and stay away from the school premises until requirements for the end of isolation are met. At home, anyone sick or infected should separate from others, stay in a specific “sick room” or areas, and use a separate bathroom (if available).
What to do:
Returning to School After COVID-19: The ill student can return to school and end isolation once the following conditions are met:
Students experiencing possible covid symptoms that cannot be attributed to another cause should remain at home, and they can return with a release from a doctor, a negative covid test result, or approval from the school nurse.
It is strongly recommended that quarantine be considered if a student has been in close contact (within 6 feet of someone for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24- hour period) with someone who has COVID-19, unless he/she has been fully vaccinated. People who are fully vaccinated do NOT need to quarantine after contact with someone who had COVID-19 unless they have symptoms. However, fully vaccinated people should get tested 3-5 days after their exposure, even if they don’t have symptoms and should wear a mask indoors in public for 14 days following exposure or until their test result is negative.
What to do if you decide to quarantine:
What to do after quarantine
