HELP US KEEP PIEDMONT PUBLIC SCHOOLS HEALTHY!
- Do not send your student to school if they are sick. This includes fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea.
Individuals with a positive test or who are showing symptoms after being in close contact with a COVID-19 positive individual are required to quarantine for 5 days from the start of symptoms or from the date of the positive test. The first day is day 0. These individuals may return to school on day 6 as long as symptoms are improving and they are fever free for 24 hours without medication.
These students should be marked DVP and should work from home via Schoology/Seesaw/Clever. To be marked DVP, proof of the COVID positive diagnosis is required. This can be a photo of an at-home test or results from your doctor's office.
**We do not require students/staff to quarantine due only to exposure.**
Students recovering from DOCUMENTED (by a physician/provider) significant illness/surgery should be marked DVP and should access assignments via Schoology/Seesaw/Clever.
Students with DOCUMENTED (by a physician/provider) short-term illness will be marked DA (documented absence). If the absence exceeds three days, the student will be marked DVP for days 4+. The documentation should include a release/return date.
If a student is sent home due to illness, he/she should be marked DA, because the school required the student to go home.
Students may NOT be marked DVP for vacations and trips.
