Health & Safety Protocols
District 34’s goal is to keep all students, in person, every day in the safest environment possible.
To reach that goal, the District will continue to follow guidance from the leading public health agencies, as it has done throughout the pandemic. The District will utilize existing and emerging avenues available to keep students in school and will continually monitor the migration to an endemic environment.
The District will exercise its authority, as described in the Communicable Disease Code and as otherwise authorized by law and according to schools’ infectious disease policies, to align that guidance to District health and safety protocols to address all infectious disease cases among students and staff. The Board of Education grants the Superintendent the authority to make adjustments to this plan as necessary to address any changes in the local health environment. The District will keep the protocols updated on this website, and in newsletters, emails and other notifications to staff and families.
- What if there is a positive case at home, does my child need to stay home?
- If a student or staff member has COVID and returns on day 6, do they wear a mask?
- Can I provide a home test for my child to return to school?
- If I don't opt my child in for rapid antigen testing, or need a test outside of school hours, what are my options for testing?
