School, Students, Community - Uniting to Succeed
On February 5, 2021, the Woodlin board and superintendent discussed new points of emphasis in our response to COVID-19. Woodlin students, parents, and employees are required to follow the points of emphasis below.
As of February 17, 2021:
1. Being exposed to COVID-19 means that someone has been within 6 feet of the person who tested positive for COVID-19 for an accumulative period of 15 minutes, inside of the school building or vehicle, on a given day.
2. Students who have been quarantined by the school are required to remote-in for instruction.
3. If a Woodlin student or group of students is exposed to someone who tests positive to COVID-19, they will be out of school and must be quarantined for 7 days. If a group is determined exposed during the school day, parents will be notified and they will be bussed home immediately. The student or group of students is required to be in remote learning and will return on the 8th day if they do not have major symptoms.
4. If a student tests positive for COVID this means they are considered ill. There is an immediate, mandatory 10-day quarantine and the student is required to be in remote learning unless a doctor indicates they are too ill to remote-in. The parent or guardian is required to come and pick up the
student immediately from school when the school contacts them. The student is required to return to school on the 11th day if they do not have major symptoms.
5. If an employee is exposed to a student who has tested positive, they will go home immediately and have the option of being tested and returning with negative results and no symptoms. If a staff member chooses not to get tested they need to quarantine and return on the 8th day.
6. Students who have not been officially quarantined and do not come to school will be marked unexcused and may not remote-in. Exception: If the parent takes the child to the doctor and gets a note indicating that the child needs to stay home for a medical condition the child may remote-in.
