Symptoms strongly associated with COVID-19:
- A high temperature (fever)
- A cough (especially a NEW or uncontrolled cough that causes difficulty breathing)
- Shortness of breath
- Difficulty breathing
- New lack of smell or taste
NEW: Isolation and Quarantine Guidelines
Given what we currently know about COVID-19 and the Omicron variant, CDC is shortening the recommended time for isolation for the public. People with COVID-19 should isolate for 5 days and if they are asymptomatic or their symptoms are resolving (without fever for 24 hours), follow that by 5 days of wearing a mask when around others to minimize the risk of infecting people they encounter. The change is motivated by science demonstrating that the majority of SARS-CoV-2 transmission occurs early in the course of illness, generally in the 1-2 days prior to onset of symptoms and the 2-3 days after.
Get your Children Vaccinated
If your children are eligible for COVID-19 vaccination, please get them vaccinated right away. The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine was recently approved for individuals 5 years of age and older. In addition, the vaccine has full FDA approval. In addition to keeping our schools and children safe — asymptomatic, masked and vaccinated students are exempt from isolations and quarantines.
The FDA approved boosters of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 12-15

Getting your child vaccinated not only keeps them safe, but keeps you from being inconvenienced by COVID-19 protocols and recommendations, which can be extremely disruptive to families. A vaccinated student population is our best way of keeping extracurriculars going, sports teams competing and kids attending school in person.
Currently, nearby Walgreens, Rite Aid and Giant Eagle Pharmacy locations are offering Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines. Please visit Vaccines.gov for the latest availability near you.
