Hebrew School 2022-23 – COVID-19 Policy

Isolation and quarantine guidance and protocols

  • Quarantine for asymptomatic exposed children, regardless of where the exposure occurred, is no longer required for school settings. Children who are identified as close contacts may continue to attend programming as long as they remain asymptomatic.
  • The school asks that asymptomatic children living full time in a home together with a parent or sibling who has tested positive to stay home for 5 days from that initial positive test result and can return to school with a negative test result. 
  • Children who test positive must isolate for at least 5 days. If they are asymptomatic or symptoms are resolving and they have been fever free for 24 hours, they may return to programming after Day 5, provided:
    • If the child is unable to mask, they must have a negative test on Day 5 or later in order to return to programming prior to day 11.
  • Symptomatic children can remain in their school or program if they are tested immediately onsite, and that test is negative. Best practice would also include wearing a mask, if possible, until symptoms are fully resolved.
    • If  the symptomatic child cannot be tested immediately, they should be sent home and allowed to return to their program or school if they test negative, or they have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and their symptoms have resolved, or if a medical professional makes an alternative diagnosis.
