COVID-19 Process Information
If your child has any signs of illness as outlined here, or is showing new or worsening symptoms of COVID-19, please keep them home from school and consult your primary care provider. Further information on steps to take in order to safely return to school may be found in the first document below.
In the event of a positive case of COVID-19 within a school setting, the Monroe County Department of Public Health will make any determination regarding a need to quarantine one or more individuals. This determination will be made on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the unique circumstances of each case and the potential for exposure to others. Guidelines concerning the process for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals may be viewed in the second and third documents below.
Although quarantine orders can be unsettling, the purpose of a quarantine is to help protect people from spreading the illness to others. The health and safety guidelines Rush-Henrietta has in place should help limit your child’s risk. However, if your child shows any symptoms, please be sure to contact your primary care provider.
Should your child need to quarantine, please expect a call from a department of health contact tracer, who will provide further information regarding your family's requirements. Your child’s teacher(s) or principal will be in touch with information regarding continuing daily instruction during the quarantine period.
In order to prepare for a potential need to quarantine, students should take their Chromebooks home on a nightly basis. Families should be aware that the direction to quarantine may come at any time.
Please contact your school-nurse teacher if you have questions.
