COVID INFORMATION - Updated Effective March 15, 2022

Back to School

UPDATE: Plymouth's COVID testing clinic is closing this Friday, April 8.

 

Effective March 15, 2022:

(Based on updated CDC guidelines/recommendations and in consultation with Sheboygan County Health Department and the District’s nurse)

1)      Protocol changed for school close contacts:

School close contacts will be identified and parents/students notified.  School close contacts may stay at school as long as they remain asymptomatic.

  • If close contacts begin showing symptoms, they should go home and get tested. (Testing will be required for return to school as long as testing is readily available through the Plymouth site.   Antigen or PCR result is acceptable.  Home test results will need to be confirmed by “professional site.”
  • If test is negative, close contact can return to school when symptoms improve.
  • If test is positive, follow isolation procedure for positive cases (5 days at home; can return masked for 5 days)
  • If close contact will not get a test, assume positive and follow procedure for positive case.

2)     Positive Cases and Household Contacts will continue to be handled as previously.  Sheboygan County Department of Health will oversee/coordinate this process (in partnership with the school).   If they give longer timelines that are used by the District, they will have families follow the timelines of the individual school districts.  The School District appreciates the communication of parents when there are positive cases in the household.   Thank you for reaching out to us, and please continue to do so.

3)      Masking will be welcome on buses, but no longer required.

4)     School signage has already been updated to reflect masking as welcome but not required.  This will apply universally to all staff, students and visitors.   (Exception:  If someone is under masking requirement due to isolation/quarantine guidelines)
