If a member of an OCS household tests positive for COVID-19, all members of that family may not return to the OCS campus for 10 days, beginning the day the infected person tested (not the day the results were received). Students or employees who have been exposed with close contact may end their quarantine:
After day 10 without testing and no symptoms.
After day 7 , after receiving a negative PCR test result or an antibody test (also known as serology testing). The test must occur on day 5 or later. Other forms of testing will not qualify for early release from quarantine.
Students or employees who have previously tested positive for COVID or who have been vaccinated are not required to quarantine.
If a student becomes ill with a diagnosed chronic condition or illness that is clearly not COVID-19, the parent may keep the student at home for one day. However, if the illness requires more than one day of absence or if the student presents symptoms on the CDC symptom list (that are not chronic conditions), the student may not return to school without a note from a doctor (stating that they do not have COVID-19 and are cleared to return to school) or a negative COVID-19 test. To avoid the possibility of potential spread, students should not come to school while a member of a household has a pending COVID-19 test.
Our current plan is to only quarantine the student who tests positive. We will alert the parents of the students in closest proximity to the student who tested positive for COVID-19 (student names will not be released to protect confidentiality).
No, to avoid the possibility of potential spread of COVID-19 at school, students or employees may not come to school while a member of a household is waiting for the results of a COVID-19 test. However, students or employees who have already contracted and recovered from COVID-19, or have been vaccinated, may come to school while their household member is awaiting a COVID-19 test result.
Yes. Any time a new household member gets sick with COVID-19 and there was close contact, the quarantine will need to restart. However, students or employees who have already contracted and recovered from COVID-19, or have been vaccinated, do not need to quarantine.
Students will not be required to wear face coverings during the 2021-2022 school year, unless conditions change that warrant a more aggressive face covering policy. Students that desire to wear a face covering may do so.
Yes, however only touchless water bottle filling stations will be used. Last year we retrofit water fountains throughout campus with touchless filling stations. We recommend each student have a clean water bottle at school at all times.
Face coverings will not be mandatory outdoors for fans, however face coverings may be mandatory for inside athletic events; we will pull out both sets of indoor bleachers for all indoor games. Hand sanitizer will be available at the gates. Fan attendance may be limited.
OCS will inform opposing teams when we become aware of positive cases before upcoming games (without using the name of the student athlete). We will decide along with the opposing school administration if a game should be played on a case by case basis.
We will continue policies in the Student Handbook. Blended Learning students will be counted as present unless parents inform the office of extended illness or a worsening degree of symptoms.
Parents may send questions or concerns about OCS’ COVID-19 response to email@example.com. Each question will be reviewed and considered by the OCS COVID-19 team. Responses to COVID-19 questions will continue to be posted on our FAQs section of this page.
