Updated COVID guidelines for Students, 8/23/21

COVID-19 HEALTH AND WELLNESS GUIDELINES FOR STUDENTS 

The Vail School District is closely monitoring the changing circumstances of  COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2). The District’s protocols and guidelines are based on  guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the  Arizona Department of Health, the Pima County Health Department (PCHD), and  the District’s COVID-19 related data from the 2020/2021 school year.  

The COVID-19 protocols identified herein will be frequently reviewed and may be  adjusted as new guidance becomes available. Please contact your child’s school  or the District’s COVID Support Team if there are any questions or concerns. 

Revised August 23, 2021 

Daily Health Reminders 

  • Please do a self-health check at home BEFORE the student leaves for  school: 

o Student must be fever free, no fever of 100 degrees or higher within  most recent 24 hours, without the use of fever reducing medication. o Is anyone in the household waiting for a COVID test result or has  anyone in the household tested positive for COVID-19 within the  past 10 days? If yes, and student is not fully vaccinated please  keep the student home and call the school. 

  • If your student is not feeling well and is experiencing new or unexplained  symptoms please keep your student home until they are feeling better. 
  • Students who come to school while sick or become sick at school will be sent home, even if fully vaccinated and/or wearing a mask

o Exceptions: 

If the student has health information on file with the school  that confirms a diagnosis of asthma or other  

respiratory/medical condition, and the school staff observes  

that there are no other symptoms, the school may contact  

the parent to check the student’s current symptoms and to  

find out if there has been a COVID-19 exposure in the home.  

If not, the student may return to class.

 

COVID-19 Health and Wellness Guidelines for Students, Revised August 23, 2021 

If the student has a runny nose with/without sneezing and  with/without an intermittent cough or watery eyes, and  

school staff observe that there are no other symptoms, the  

parent may be contacted to check the student’s current  

symptoms and to find out if there has been a COVID-19  

exposure in the home. If not, the student may return to class. 

  • Frequent handwashing is strongly encouraged… at home and during  school. Cover coughs and sneezes with the inside of your elbow or use a  tissue and wash hands or use hand sanitizer. 
  • Consider the COVID-19 vaccination as a preventive measure if your  student is eligible. Please note the COVID-19 vaccination is optional and  will not be required to attend school or school functions. 
  • Consider having your student wear a cloth face covering (mask) if your  student is unable to be vaccinated. Please note that wearing a mask is  optional for all students, staff, and visitors. 

Face Coverings (Masks) 

In March of 2021, Governor Doug Ducey lifted a number of previously mandated  statewide mitigation requirements, including mandatory mask wearing and  physical distancing. On May 14, 2021, the Pima County Board of Supervisors  rescinded the local face mask mandate. 

Beginning July 1, 2021, employees, students, and visitors may opt to wear or not  wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status. Based on current COVID-19  transmission rates within Pima County, students and staff who are not fully  vaccinated are strongly encouraged to wear a face mask while indoors on  campus, especially when interacting with other students. 

The decision to wear or not wear a mask will be respected by all parties.  Students and families are reminded of the expectation to maintain respectful  interactions with others while on school property or attending school functions  and to follow the A.C.T. Statement. 

Vaccinations 

Information from the CDC is that the COVID-19 vaccinations have proven to be  very effective in preventing COVID-19 infection and serious illness. Vaccinations  are now widely available and free to eligible age groups. If you would like  assistance in finding a vaccination site please contact your healthcare provider or  you may contact the District’s COVID Support Team at  

covidsupport@vailschooldistrict.org. 

Students are NOT required to get vaccinated for COVID-19 and, if vaccinated,  will not be required to show proof of vaccination status.  

Fully Vaccinated Status

COVID-19 Health and Wellness Guidelines for Students, Revised August 23, 2021 

Per the CDC, people are considered fully vaccinated: 

  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer  or Moderna vaccines, or 
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s  Janssen vaccine. 

If you don’t meet these requirements, regardless of your age, you are NOT fully  vaccinated and isolation and/or quarantine precautions may be imposed in the  event of close contact with a COVID positive case. 

Flu-like or COVID-like Symptoms 

Your student must stay home if they have any of the following symptoms, AND  the symptoms are new or unexplained.  

  • Fever of 100 degrees or higher or chills 
  • Cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing 
  • Fatigue, muscle or body aches 
  • Headache 
  • New loss of taste or smell 
  • Sore throat or congestion or runny nose 
  • Vomiting or diarrhea 

If the student becomes ill while at school, the parent/guardian will be contacted  and the student must be picked up as soon as possible.  

If the student is fully vaccinated, the student may return to school as soon as  symptoms improve. 

If the student is not fully vaccinated the student may return to school as soon as  symptoms improve UNLESS the student has been in close contact with someone  who is waiting for the results of a COVID test or who has tested positive for  COVID-19 within the past 10 days. 

Student Close Contact, if Not Fully Vaccinated 

  • Per CDC guidance an infected person can spread SARS-CoV-2 (COVID 19) starting from 2 days before they have any symptoms (or, for  asymptomatic persons, 2 days before the positive specimen collection  date), until they meet criteria for discontinuing home isolation. 
  • NEW from the Health Department: The CDC does provide an exception  “in the K-12 indoor classroom setting, the close contact excludes students  who were within 3 to 6 feet of a COVID-positive student if BOTH the  infected student and the exposed student(s) correctly and consistently  wore well-fitting masks the entire time. This exception does not apply to 

COVID-19 Health and Wellness Guidelines for Students, Revised August 23, 2021 

teachers, staff, or other adults in the indoor classroom setting.” (CDC,  August 5, 2021). CDC guidance is subject to change. 

Otherwise, close contact is defined by the Health Department as: 

  • The student was within 6 feet of someone who has COVID-19 for a  cumulative total of 15 or more minutes over a 24-hour period, mask or no  mask. 
  • The student provided care at home to someone who is sick with COVID 19 
  • The student had direct physical contact with the positive person (hugged  or kissed them) 
  • The student shared eating or drinking utensils 
  • The COVID positive person sneezed, coughed, or somehow got  respiratory droplets on the student 

Confidentiality and Privacy 

Confidentiality requirements under Policy JHCC, and Regulation JHCC-R are  applicable, with public health exceptions to the privacy rules under both the  Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). 

An enrolled student’s personal health information will not be released to others,  except to report to the school point of contact, the District COVID Support Team,  or to the applicable health service agency. 

Reporting a Positive COVID-19 Test Result or Confirmed Case 

Parents/Guardians will communicate a need for their student to be absent due to  illness and any COVID-19 test results to the school. The District will comply with  requirements to report a confirmed case to the Pima County Health Department  and will notify families and employees, as applicable. 

The District will not require a follow-up negative COVID test or a doctor’s note for  a student who has tested COVID positive before allowing the student to return to  school. 

Notification Letters for COVID-19 Positive Case 

School principals will distribute a notice to staff and parents when there is a  confirmed COVID-19 positive case on campus. The school administrator may  use discretion to determine whether to send multiple individual notices during the  week or to group the letters into weekly or bi-weekly notices. Parents may refer  to the District’s COVID-19 dashboard at https://vailschooldistrict.org/school opening-and-covid-19-information/.

COVID-19 Health and Wellness Guidelines for Students, Revised August 23, 2021 

Cleaning Procedures 

Sanitizing and cleaning will be done with frequency at all District sites and  expanded to include the following: 

  • Sanitizing will occur in high frequency areas at regular intervals throughout  the day (sanitizing removes contaminants including germs and viruses). Cleaning will take place daily (cleaning removes dirt, grime, waste). Site and custodial staff are collaborating regarding site/department  specific needs. 

Protocol for School or Building Closures 

The District will consult with and follow guidance from the PCHD. According to  the health department, an outbreak is defined as two or more laboratory  confirmed COVID-19 cases among students or staff within a 14-day period who  are epidemiologically linked, do not share a household, and were not identified  as close contacts of each other in another setting during standard case  investigation or contact tracing.  

If a school or department is partially or fully closed due to an outbreak, the  following steps will take place: 

  • A deep cleaning of the learning space(s), school, or department as  applicable. 
  • Possible transition to remote learning for continuity of education. Make appropriate notifications to employees and families through School  Messenger, emails, and/or phone calls, as applicable. 

For COVID-19 related details regarding Transportation, Playgrounds, Lunch  Time, Student Belongings and Materials, Physical Distancing, Athletics,  and other school day topics, please visit the District website.

Letter from Superintendent.

August 6, 2021

 

Dear Parents,

 

The first few weeks of the 2021-22 school year are in the books. Our schools are operating on their regular full-time schedules and athletics are underway. We are optimistic that COVID-19 will cause minimal disruptions this year, but our reality is that the virus is still here.

 

We are experiencing an increase of COVID-19 cases in our community. In light of this and recent CDC guidance, I highly recommend each family consider having their children wear face coverings while indoors on campuses. In addition to protecting individuals from COVID-19, these measures also help prevent the spread in schools and keep classrooms open.
I also encourage each family to strongly consider getting vaccinated if eligible to do so. The Pima County Health Department will be holding vaccination clinics on some of our campuses in the coming weeks. Vaccinations are a choice – not a requirement. Parent authorization is needed before any child can receive a vaccination. Information on the vaccination clinics can be found HERE.

 

Parents in Vail continue to have many outstanding instructional choices this year. In addition to our traditional in person options, we have Vail Virtual Live and Vail Virtual Self-Paced programs for parents who prefer remote instruction at this time. Information about the virtual school options can be found HERE.
At the June 8th governing board meeting, the Board took action making face coverings optional with the pledge to continue to monitor conditions surrounding COVID-19. At the end of June, the Arizona Legislature passed a law stating that masks and vaccines cannot be required for students, staff, or visitors in Arizona’s K-12 schools.

 

The validity of the law is being challenged. We will continue to monitor the situation. In the meantime, Vail schools are required to and will follow all state laws.

 

Vail’s first guiding principle is, “We respect parents.” No matter what you choose for your family (vaccines, masks, in-person/remote), that decision will be respected. Further, in the Vail schools, we treat one another with kindness. At this time in the Vail schools, masks are recommended, and kindness is required.

 

Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions. Thank you for your continued support and trust.

 

John Carruth
Superintendent
