As we prepare to bring students back on campus Monday, November 30th, we wanted to take advantage of this opportunity to make sure everyone understands the updated SR3 COVID procedures. Please take a moment to review the important information linked below. We are asking families to fill out this form (<-- Click here) as a way to acknowledge the new procedures. One form per student is due by December 1st.
SR3 will continue to work with Andrew County Health Department to follow the Missouri Department of Health and the Missouri Department of Education guidelines around schools and COVID-19.
Clarification of the updated contact tracing guidance from Missouri Department of Health and DESE
The Andrew County Health Department will still ask close contacts of a positive COVID case to quarantine for 14 days regardless of mask usage. However, under this new guidance from the state, close contacts who are exhibiting no symptoms will be allowed to attend school during their quarantine. This guidance does not allow the student to ride the bus, stay for after school care, or participate in sports or extracurricular activities during their quarantine period.
Parents and guardians should be diligent in checking their child(ren) for symptoms over their quarantine. If a student who has been exposed to COVID-19 begins experiencing any symptoms or is not feeling well, they need to seek medical attention before returning to school.
