     In continued efforts to keep our community informed of the impact of COVID-19 on the school environment, the district will post and maintain COVID data on our website as it is presented to us. 

    Active totals simply demonstrate the current students and/or staff that are confirmed positive through testing.  A positive case has to isolate for 10 days after the onset of symptoms.  If symptoms are improved and without fever, they may return on day 11 with release from the health department.

    Once a person tests positive, the health department will begin tracing.  They will start tracing a positive person from 48 hours prior to symptoms appearing, looking for close contacts.

    A close contact is defined as someone within 6ft, unmasked for greater than 15 minutes.

    If a person meets the conditions of a close contact, they are placed in quarantine for 14 days from the time of their contact with the positive patient.

    Quarantine totals demonstrate a community impact.  Understand that many of the quarantines affecting the school are a result of outside school exposures.

    We hope this will help in understanding the processes the school and the health department are required to use and offer current, accurate data to our community. Covid Active Totals

  • School Screening Guidance for Covd-19 Symptoms: In an attempt to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we will be following recommendations from the CDC, DESE, and Benton County Health Department. Every day prior to sending your child to school, we ask that you check your child for potential COVID-19 symptoms. If your child has developed any of the following symptoms, they should not be sent to school. COVID-19 Symptoms are currently defined into two categories: High and Low risk symptoms. HIGH RISK SYMPTOMS= Any new cough, difficulty breathing, loss of taste or smell. LOW RISK SYMPTOMS=congestion, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat, headache, myalgia (muscle aches and pain) or Fever 100.0 or greater. If a child has 1 low risk symptom, and no known exposure to COVID-19, the child can return to school 24 hours after the symptom has resolved (without taking fever reducing medications). If a child has 2 or more low risk symptoms, OR 1 high risk symptom, and no known exposure - the child needs to be evaluated by a healthcare provider. If a child has a COVID-19 diagnostic test swab, and the result is negative, the child can return to school 24 hours after the fever has resolved, and their symptoms are improving. If the child has lab testing and evaluation, and an alternative diagnosis is likely (flu/strep), the child can return to school 24 hours after the fever has resolved, and their symptoms are improving. If the child has a COVID-19 diagnostic swab, and the result is POSITIVE - the child can return to school with approval from the Benton County Health Department (typically 10-14 days) AND after 24 hours of being fever free without fever reducing medicaton AND symptoms are improving. If the child does not have symptoms, but has been exposed to a COVID-19 positive patient, the child can return to school after 14 days from the last date of exposure to the COVID-19 positive patient, UNLESS symptoms develop. If symptoms develop, call your Healthcare Provider for a diagnostic test swab. If you have any questions contact: Tamala Heimsoth, RN-School Nurse, phone 660-668-4427 ext. 305 or the Benton County Health Department phone 660-438-2876
