Independent Study packets
Thu, Mar 12 2:57pm

Good afternoon families,

 

We are getting multiple requests for independent study packets for students staying home for fear of the COVID-19. We all have the same fears and concerns.

We just received the following information from OUSD regarding COVID-19 and independent studies.

This is what we have received:

 

  • If a student was exposed to COVID-19 and has COVID-19 symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath), student should:
    • Self-quarantine at home for 14 days

    • Immediately contact their doctor and get a doctor's note

    • Sign up for independent study

  • If a student was exposed to COVID-19 and does not have COVID-19 symptoms, student should:

    • Self-quarantine at home for 14 days

    • If they develop symptoms, immediately contact their doctor and get a doctor's note

    • Sign up for independent study

  • If a student has COVID-19 symptoms but no known exposure, student should:

    • Do not come to school until symptoms dissipate

    • Immediately contact their doctor and get a doctor's note

    • If they expect to be out for more than 5 days, sign up for independent study

  • If a student is absent for fear of CoronaVirus an unexcused absence will be recorded as this is not an acceptable reason for an absence and independent study
