Below is the current protocol for students who are feeling ill AND for those who may be undergoing symptoms related to COVID-19. Please make sure to fill out this HHS Report FORM to report all COVID-related issues so we can help provide assistance to all of our stakeholders. Thank you for your help in keeping our students and families safe!
We are asking that students remain home if they are feeling sick. Please contact the HHS Attendance Office by email: HHS-ATTENDANCE@AVHSD.ORG
If a student is feeling any of the following symptoms that are consistent with possible COVID-19 (fever of 100.4 degrees or more, a new cough (different from baseline), vomiting, or any new onset diarrhea) OR any other symptoms of illness that could possibly be COVID related, we are asking that you:
TEST FOR COVID - Once you receive the test results, please fill out this FORM whether negative or positive so that we are aware and can provide further assistance.
∎Test is Negative: remain home until their condition improves, being fever-free without fever-reducing medication for 24 hrs. If the student receives a Dr. note stating they can return, please follow the suggestions by the student's physician.
Contact our Attendance Office: HHS-ATTENDANCE.AVHSD.ORG to clear the student's absence via email, or contact our Attendance clerks - last names A-K (firstname.lastname@example.org) and last names L-Z (email@example.com).
Key Concepts from Protocol:
Isolation days begin at 5 & go up to 10 - Day 0 is the day the positive test is taken or symptoms begin
A protective mask must be worn at all times when around others
Take a COVID test on or after Day 5; if negative AND have been fever-free for 24 hrs (without fever-reducing medication), AND have no symptoms or symptoms are improving
If the student tests positive on the 5th day, OR the student hasn't tested at all and/or knows that the student needs to be out for the full 10 days, please contact us ASAP.
