2021-2022 Return to Learn Procedures

EPS Will Continue:

  • to require anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 to isolate for 5 days, regardless of vaccination status. 
  • to recommend that students and staff wear masks

EPS Will No Longer:

  • conduct contact tracing on a case-by-case basis. Instead, we will conduct outbreak investigations as necessary. The information collected will be used to determine if a class, grade level, or school needs to close temporarily. 
  • provide individual Covid exposure notifications to families.  
  • post Covid numbers twice a week

Mask Protocols

Masks are recommended for students and staff.

What Do I Do If My Student Has Covid?

  • Isolation: Anyone with a positive COVID-19 test will be required to isolate regardless of vaccination status.
  • Quarantines: EPS does not require quarantines. Parents will be notified when their child has been in close contact with a positive case of COVID and they will have the responsibility whether to quarantine their child or not. 
  • Exposure: If you believe that your child has been exposure, please refer to this Symptom Guidance  (Staff & Students)
  • Staying Home When Sick: It is more important than ever that you do not send your child to school if they are feeling unwell until you know the cause of their illness. Anyone with a fever, diarrhea, or vomiting must stay home until 24 hours symptom-free.
