Student Absence “MUST” LIST

Greetings PS 101 Families-

By tomorrow I will be releasing an FAQ to answer many of your questions.

A key piece of information you need to know regarding student absence OR students being sent home is below.
Read below very carefully because if a child has COVID like symptoms, a doctor’s not is not enough for them to return to school and will have to stay home for 10 school days.

Any individual (student or staff member) showing signs of COVID-19 can only return to
school when all the following conditions are met:

Option #1
o Received a positive COVID-19 test
AND
o Isolated for 10 days
AND
o Presents clearance from a healthcare provider (Doctor’s note)
AND
o The individual has been symptom free for 24 hours without the use of medication.

OR

Option #2

o Received a negative COVID-19 test
AND
o Presents clearance from a healthcare provider (Doctor’s note)
AND
o The individual has been symptom free for 24 hours without the use of medication.

OR

Option #3

o Never got a COVID-19 test
AND
o At least 10 days have passed since symptoms started
AND
o Presents clearance from a healthcare provider (Doctor’s note)
AND
o The individual has been symptom free for 24 hours without the use of medication.
