    • Students, families, faculty, and staff must immediately notify the School if someone in their household tests positive for COVID-19 or if they or their child has been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
  • An individual tests positive for COVID-19: Individual should follow the recommendations of their healthcare provider for isolation protocol.
