Cold and Flu Season

Casady School values in-person learning, and we do our best to partner with our community to mitigate the risk of infection. During the cold and flu season, it is especially important for each of us to monitor our own health and our children’s health daily.
We continue to ask students and employees to be symptom-free when coming to School until a situation has been monitored and determined to not be COVID-related.
 
The CDC recommends diagnostic testing to determine whether the illness is the flu, cold, allergies, or COVID. Please keep your child home and alert the School if anyone in your household tests positive for COVID-19 or if your child has been in close contact with someone who has tested positive.
 
Please be alert for the wide range of symptoms that have been reported by the CDC and keep your child home until you determine - we recommend testing - that it is not COVID related:
  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea
 
Quarantine: We are following CDC guidelines by giving our constituents the option of reducing their 14-day quarantine requirement to either a 7-day or 10-day option. In addition to providing proper verification to return early, parents are required to contact the Division the day before their child’s return. This is very important since it gives the Division time to make necessary adjustments to move the student from Flex Learning to in-person learning. Details of our Quarantine verification process can be found on this document: CLICK HERE.
