COVID-19 RESPONSE

Antigen Testing Parent Letter

Antigen Testing Parent Consent Form

 

 

Currently, the Worth County School District provides in-person learning opportunities for all K-12 students.  Students and staff are strongly encouraged to wear a mask when social distancing is not possible.  For those students, who are quarantined or isolated because of CDC guidelines,  the district will provide remote learning accommodations.

 

Parent and caregivers should screen their children daily for the following symptoms:  

  • Fever or chills 

  • Cough

  • Headache

  • Muscle aches

  • Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea

  • New loss of taste or smell 

  • New runny nose or congestion 

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing 

  • Sore throat

 

If children or teens have one of the bold symptoms or a combination of the other symptoms, they should stay home until their symptoms improve.  The district does provide students and staff with an opportunity to receive a free COVID-19 antigen test (while supplies last). Authorization forms are available at the school health office.  Student or staff member must exhibit symptoms to ensure an accurate test result.  

 

Parents should notify the school district when their child must quarantine because of a close contact outside of the school setting or when the child tests positively for the virus. The school office will notify students that must quarantine per CDC guidelines after a close contact in the school setting.  We appreciate your compliance with these procedures.

Reach out to the elementary or high school office for further clarification on quarantine and isolation procedures, as they are continuously being updated.
