**Note that information regarding symptoms and recommended symptom wait time changes based on health cares recommendations.

If a student becomes ill at school with the following symptoms, a form will be filled out and parents will be called.

Parents:  If your child has asthma, a regular runny nose, or headaches without additional symptoms, and you would have normally sent them to school, then continue to send them to school.

However, if any of the “regular” symptoms are combined with COVID related symptoms or a combination of symptoms that aren’t typical for your child, then keep them home. Please contact your health provider if you are uncertain. See the Penn Medicine document.
