COVID-19 Information

  • COVID REQUIREMENTS THAT REMAIN IN PLACE:

    • All employees of YCS will be vaccinated or have an approved exemption.
    • If a student or staff member exhibits COVID-19 symptoms, they should stay home or will be sent to the health/isolation room to be picked up from school.
    • If symptoms last more than 24 hours, students and staff will be allowed to return once symptoms have improved and receive a negative test result. Our district testing center will remain open to serve students and staff.
    • If a student or staff member tests positive for COVID regardless of vaccination status, they may return after 5 full days of isolation if 1) symptoms have greatly improved, 2) no fever for 24 hours without medication AND 3) tests negative or wears a mask for days 6-10.
    • If no test is administered or mask will not be worn, student or staff will remain home for an additional 5 days.
    • Masks will be worn in health/isolation rooms.

    STRATEGIES WE WILL USE TO REDUCE TRANSMISSION:

    • Continue to encourage frequent handwashing and hygiene practices.
    • Practice physical distancing to the degree possible and practical.
    • Maximize outdoor activities.
    • Notify student/family or staff if exposed to COVID positive individual. Student and staff will not be required to quarantine; however, they will be highly encouraged to monitor symptoms, mask for up to 10 days and get tested 3-5 days after their last exposure.
    • Make RAPID diagnostic testing available to students and staff that have been exposed to COVID.
    • Open windows on buses for ventilation and provide access to masks.
    • Disinfect and clean surfaces as recommended.
