Parents Contacted Immediately


One of the biggest fears parents have is what will happen if your child shows COVID symptoms in school. 

If your child shows symptoms they will be brought to a dedicated room in the school and parents will be contacted immediately.

You will be asked to bring your child home, call your doctor and follow instructions given to you by your doctor and isolate for 14 days.
