Can my child go to school today?

This is the algorithm we as Whitehall School District staff and nurses have to follow. This is to try and decrease exposure times with cohorts, sport teams, coaches, teachers, and students still doing transitional classes. If we can decrease the exposure, we can decrease virus loads, which will aid in decrease symptoms, and therefore decrease the amount of breaks we see during the school year. We know this will be difficult but we have to follow the guidelines in which the county, state, and nation health professionals give us for public safety.  If you have any specific questions for us, as nurses, related to your child's individual risk, tools and hygiene you can use at home or teach your child, or school policy when it comes to covid-19 you can email us.
