COVID-19 Policy

Updated 1/10/2023

Every morning, please check the wellness policy to verify your child does not have any symptoms listed.

Please know that we are keeping classroom activity as separate as possible at all times, so we will evaluate each situation to see if it is possible for a portion of the school to remain open. It may not be possible for the school to remain open in any capacity, however this will be reviewed with every instance.

Student should stay home (do not come to school) if:

  1. If a student has been in close contact (within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes) with anyone confirmed with Covid-19 within the past two weeks.

  2. If a student is awaiting the results of a Covid-19 test.

  3. If a student has Covid-19 symptoms, please stay home and review the steps below.

When in doubt, please stay home, notify the school via Procare. We will work through your specific situation with you.

Note: Each situation will be reviewed independently with the MDS Director, Executive Board (as needed), local health officials and the Idaho Public Health Department. Following are our guidelines for Covid-19.

Student had a close contact with a person with Covid-19, remains asymptomatic

  • Student must stay home.

  • Student may test on day 3 and day 5 with a negative result or receive a negative result across any subsequent 48 hour period, or return 10 days after most recent exposure, provided they remain symptom free.

Student tests positive for Covid-19

  • Student with symptoms:

    • May return to school after 10 days from positive test AND symptoms improving AND more than 24 hours fever-free.​

  • Student without symptoms

    • May return to school after 10 days from a positive test or receive negative results across any subsequent 48 hour period (i.e. test on day 3 and day 5).​

Student who develops symptoms while at school

If a student presents with any of the conditions activating the wellness policy during school, the student will be sent home, per the guidelines described in the Wellness Policy. It is required that your child is picked up by a family member or an approved pick up adult within 30 minutes of the pick up notice.

Tuition refunds will be determined only if a school-wide or full classroom closure takes place.
