COVID Update as of DECEMBER 9, 2020
Our Lady of the Lake Catholic School is following the 10-day
Quarantine guidelines as released by the
CDC and DHS on December 7, 2020.
*This DOES NOT apply to Kindergarten or PreK*
PreK and Kindergarten students who have been exposed or show the main Covid-19 symptoms will have to remain out of school for the 14 days of quarantine.
After Exposure or Travel:
If a student shows 2 or more symptoms, the student MUST quarantine at home and have a COVID-19 test performed no sooner than 6 days after the last known exposure or when symptoms began.
The student must remain home and isolate for 10 days from the onset of symptoms.
Continue to monitor and report daily, to the school office, from day 11-14. The student may return to school on Day 11.
The student must remain home until all symptoms are gone and the student is fever-free without medication for 24 hours.
This may be a total of 10 days of quarantine depending on when testing occurred and no symptoms and no fever without medication for 24 hours .
Quarantine at home until after day 10. When returning, monitor for symptoms until day 14.
If symptoms develop, follow the “With Symptoms” Guidelines. Any symptoms MUST be reported to the school.
Vaccinated or Recovered:
Exposure two weeks after being vaccinated (all required doses) or recovered from a confirmed case of COVID does not need to quarantine and may return to school if recovery or vaccination was within the last 90 days.
If symptoms develop, you MUST still quarantine!
Update 1/4/2021: The DHS and the Ashland County Health Department are STILL recommending that staff and students who are not able to social distance should continue to quarantine for 14 days. Preschoolers and Kindergarteners are NOT able to understand social distancing due to their developmental levels. So for the safety of all our staff and students, those students who are in preschool and kindergarten will still need to quarantine for 14 days.
Update 2/28/2021: It is important that you notify the school office if your student or anyone in your household tests or has tested positive for Covid-19. We need to have documentation for our records of any positive cases and dates.
Even if the school/classroom is or has been on quarantine and your student or any household member tested positive for Covid-19, we need you to notify us. During the height of the infection rate the county offices were so back logged they were unable to report all positive tests of students or household members to the school.
Please continue all safety precautions: masking when in public, handwashing and safe distancing.
We appreciate all your family is doing to keep OLL School's staff and students safe during the pandemic.
Covid-19 rapid testing is not available in the Ashland area at this time. There is currently a 5-7 day wait for testing results.
Covid-19 testing must be done no sooner that day 6 or day 7 after the onset of symptoms or exposure.
