To participate in in-person learning, please be aware of the following requirements and COVID procedures:
What does a student need to come to school?
All students must have the following four items in order to board the bus and/or enter the school building:
- A face mask (cloth or medical).
- An ID that must be worn at all times so they can be easily read on the bus or when at school. Students who don't have an ID yet should follow instructions sent from the school regarding how to get an ID.
When I call my student in absent, what will happen?
When you call your student in as absent and ill, you will be asked to provide a reason for the absence. This may result in a follow-up from the Health Office.
If you or someone in your household tests positive for COVID-19, you must notify the school nurse or an administrator and keep your student home from school. District 99 will notify the DuPage County Health Department. Additionally, all siblings of a student that tests positive must also be excluded from school.
If someone tests positive for COVID-19, what is the plan?
Anyone testing positive for COVID-19 must be excluded as determined by DCHD guidelines and alert their health care provider. In addition, students and staff members must check in with school officials before returning to our school buildings.
What should people expect if they are excluded?
Students who are excluded and able to continue their learning asynchronously should reach out to their teachers to touch base. Building support teams will also make contact with both student and parent.
If we learn that someone at D99 has tested positive for COVID-19, will I be notified?
District 99 will make an initial contact (either by email or phone) to anyone who is identified as having had close contact (direct contact of more than 15 minutes within less than six feet) with someone who receives a positive COVID-19 test. This will include specific instructions regarding next steps as well as a follow-up phone call. You can see the number of active weekly student cases here.
What if my student shows symptoms of COVID-19 while at school?
Any student displaying COVID-like symptoms at school will be sent to the nurse’s office for evaluation. Any student with confirmed COVID symptoms will be required to leave the school building and cannot return until approved by the school nurse.
If a student comes to school sick and is determined by the nurse to have COVID-like symptoms, they will be removed from the classroom by our personnel. The remainder of those in their shared space will be moved to a “clean” area while the room the student was in is disinfected.
North High and South High will maintain an area outside of the Health Office for triage of sick students and will have a separate area to serve as an exclusion room. This room will be staffed by a third-party contracted nurse. A separate restroom for students/staff who exhibit COVID symptoms will also be identified.
- If your student is ill at school, the nurse will assess your student and complete this form (Spanish).
- If any COVID-19 like symptoms are assessed, the nurse will immediately contact Parent/Guardian and isolate your student. (See page 65 of the Student Parent Handbook, “Health and Safety Procedures.”)
- Your student will then be required to leave the school building; also note that any siblings living in the household of the sick student will also be sent home. The room your student was occupying when symptoms were present will be evacuated and sanitized.
- Students cannot return to school in person until a parent/guardian completes this form (Spanish), which is to be approved by school officials.
- In addition, anyone who was in quarantine must complete this form (Spanish) before returning to school.
