When should I keep my child home from school?
- If your child has a temperature of 100.0 degrees or higher
- If your child has a sore throat cough, congestion or running nose, fatigue, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, loss of taste or smell, stomachache, diarrhea, vomiting, headache or body aches
- If your child has tested positive for COVID-19 (or is awaiting test results)
- If your child has had contact with someone who tested for COVID-19
How do I report their absence?
If a student tests positive for COVID-19 or has symptoms of COVID-19, or if a student has come into close contact (within 6 feet for 10 or more minutes), the parent should do the following:
- Complete the Student COVID-19 Information Form at https://url.dvusd.org/COVID19ReportingForm.
- Email the campus nurse and a designated campus administrator informing them of the situation. Specify in the email if the situation involves a positive test, suspected positive test or close contact with someone who has had a positive test or suspected positive test. Include in the email: Name, student ID number, date of test and date that symptoms began.
- Complete regular student absence procedures for notifying school of student absence.
- If a parent has any questions, the parent can email COVID19concerns@dvusd.org and/or the campus nurse.
- A district or campus based representative will follow up with the parent regarding the received report and continue contact tracing data collection.
What happens next?
- Students that will be out for an extended period of time can check out a Chromebook from the school and pick up their Reading MyBook and Math Binder
- If they are well enough they will log on to Canvas and complete work to stay on track with students in the classroom
