Strongly Recommended: All employees and students are strongly recommended to be up-to-date on the COVID-19 vaccination.


After Major Breaks
Following major school breaks, all students and employees may be asked to take an antigen test in the morning before returning to school. Positive results should be reported to the school nurse. Please note that PCR testing is no longer offered on campus. 

Reactive Testing
  • Any time a student or employee exhibits a new onset of symptoms consistent with COVID-19, they are required to stay home.
  • They must be tested with either a PCR-based or antigen test, and self-isolate until negative test results are received.
  • If a student develops symptoms at school, they will be assessed by the nurse and sent home. 
  • Testing is required between days 3-5 after a close contact exposure.
  • All positive results should be reported to the school nurse.


Masking: For the time being, masks are optional. Please review Crossroads’ Positive Case and Exposure Protocols for information on masking requirements following isolation periods.
Handwashing: Regular handwashing will continue to be done throughout the school day. Please continue frequent handwashing at home.

Air filtration: All Crossroads facilities air filtration systems have been upgraded. Some smaller locations also have an air filtration machine in the room.
