VACCINATION

Requirements: All employees and eligible students (ages 5 and up) are required to be fully-vaccinated* unless the individual has an approved exemption. Employees’ up-to-date vaccine cards should be submitted to the medical assistant; students’ up-to-date vaccine cards should be uploaded to their Magnus Health account. View tutorials on uploading your child’s card on your phone or your computer.
 
*Fully vaccinated means that vaccines have been administered in accordance with dosage recommendations from the vaccine manufacturer. 



TESTING

After Major Breaks
Following major school breaks, all students and employees must take a PCR test within 72 hours of returning to school OR they may 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. Email notifications will inform parents and deans that the child is to be tested prior to returning to campus.
  • Testing is recommended after a close contact exposure.
  • All positive results should be reported to the school nurse.
