Covid 19

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

  • You isolate when you have been infected with the virus, even if you don’t have symptoms.
  • You quarantine when you might have been exposed to the virus.

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:

  • Monitor your symptoms. If you have an emergency warning sign (including troublebreathing), seek emergency medical care immediately.
  • Stay in a separate room from other household members, if possible.
  • Use a separate bathroom, if possible.
  • Avoid contact with other members of the household and pets.
  • Don’t share personal household items, like cups, towels, and utensils.
  • Wear a mask when around other people, if able.

Returning to School After COVID-19: The ill student can return to school and end isolation once the following conditions are met:

  • 10 days out from the start of the symptoms and
  • Fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medication, and
  • Symptoms have improved.

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:

  • Watch for fever (100.4◦F), cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19.
  • If possible, stay away from people you live with, especially people who are at higher risk for getting very sick from COVID-19.
  • Return to school on day 11 after your last contact with a person who has COVID-19 if symptom free or
  • Return to school on day 8 after receiving a negative covid test.

What to do after quarantine

  • Watch for symptoms until 14 days after exposure.
  • If you have symptoms, immediately self-isolate and contact your local public health authority or healthcare provider.

Anyone who has had close contact with someone with COVID-19 and who meets the following criteria does NOT need to consider staying home.

  • Someone who has been fully vaccinated and shows no symptoms of COVID- 19. However, it is recommended that fully vaccinated people get tested 3-5 days after their exposure, even if they don’t have symptoms. It is also recommended that they wear a mask indoors for 14 days following exposure or until their test result is negative.
  • Or Someone who had COVID-19 illness within the previous 3 months and
  • Has recovered and
  • Remains without COVID 19 symptoms (for example, cough, shortness of breath)

In the event of a large outbreak of COVID-19 or a high risk of community spread at one or more schools, Le Monde International School may decide to activate distance learning for all students who select “In-Person Learning.”
