COVID Information

This page will keep Guardian Angels School families up-to-date on health information, school policies, and more regarding COVID 19 for the 2021-2022 school year. 
 
Please notify school as soon as you know a Covid test will be performed. While waiting for the results of a Covid test on anyone in your family, please keep any affected students and all siblings home from school and extra-curricular activities until test results are received.
 

Follow guidance from your healthcare provider in returning to school after negative test results are received for symptomatic students. Asymptomatic siblings may return to school upon receipt of negative test unless instructed otherwise by healthcare provider.

Daily wellness assessment: (This assessment should be completed by parents at home, before bringing students to school. If your student is experiencing any of these symptoms, please contact your health care provider for guidance.)

 

  • Fever of at least 100 degrees F (over 50% of children who test positive for COVID do not experience a fever)

  • Fatigue

COVID/Health Update (8/25/21)
 

Ohio Department of Health Quarantine Guidance

Summary of Quarantine guidelines:
Quarantine for exposure in the classroom, when masked and distanced three feet, will not be required.
 
Quarantine for exposure to a positive covid case outside of school (including sports) will still be required. Exposure is defined as having been within 6 feet of someone for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period, who has Covid-19. 
 
At this time, we are offering three quarantine options provided by the CDC. (*Please note, day of exposure is counted as day zero.*)
  • the 14-day full quarantine, 
  • the shortened 10-day quarantine if one remains asymptomatic, (continue monitoring for symptoms for 14 days) 
  • the seven-day quarantine (if symptom free, with a negative Covid test obtained on the fifth day or later after exposure and continued monitoring for symptoms for 14 days)
     

    For the fully vaccinated: there is no need to quarantine for exposure. We ask that families still share that there has been an exposure and if they want to provide documentation of vaccination, we will use that to determine that quarantine is not necessary. (Monitoring for symptoms for 14 days is still required, and the CDC suggests a test from day 3-5 for exposure.)
