What happens if I/my child tests positive on the rapid antigen test?

Update: August 16, 2021

If a symptomatic student tests positive on the rapid antigen test, the student is considered positive and will be sent home to isolate for a minimum of 10 days. The student will be able to return after 10 days, and once symptoms have improved and the student has been fever-free for at least 24 hours without fever reducing medication. Individuals identified as close contacts of the student will be tested. 

Parents/guardians can obtain an additional PCR at an outside testing location if they choose to do so for a result in under 24 hours.  The parent/guardian will need to provide proof to the school of the results. If the student tests negative with the PCR, the student may return to school when clear of their symptoms per communicable disease procedures. Please note that if either test is positive, the student will be considered to have a positive test and will need to isolate.
