    COVID-19 Policies & Return to School

    As of Friday, 3/1/24, the CDC has updated its COVID-19 isolation guidance to reflect improvements in patient outcomes with existing effective treatments and vaccines. After testing positive for COVID-19, individuals may go back to normal activities including school and work when the following are both true for 24 hours:
    1. Symptoms are getting better overall and
    2. No fever without the use of fever-reducing medications.
     
    We recommend masking post-infection until a negative rapid test is received or through Day 10 post-infection.
     
    Parents should inform their child’s school nurse if their child tests positive for COVID-19 or other communicable illnesses such as flu, strep, norovirus and RSV. The CDC has plans to develop infection prevention and control guidance for schools, which will include information on infection spread and prevention strategies. This guidance will align with the updated Respiratory Virus Guidance and other disease-specific guidance and include considerations for children with special health care needs. We anticipate this guidance being released prior to the 2024-2025 school year.
     
    Anyone that is considered a close contact of a positive case, but that has no symptoms may continue to work and attend school as long as they have no fever and remain asymptomatic. All close contacts are encouraged to wear a face mask for 10 days from the date of their last contact with the positive case. Close contacts are asked to remain home if they become symptomatic and encouraged to COVID test. All COVID-19-related questions and return-to-school decisions can be directed to nurses@woodstockacademy.org.
     
    There will be a number of respiratory viruses including COVID-19, influenza, and RSV that will be circulating through the Fall and Winter. Please stay home if you are feeling unwell.
     
     
     

    Return to Sports Following COVID infection:

    The Woodstock Academy continues to follow the guidance of the American Academy of Pediatrics when it comes to return to sports and physical activity following a positive COVID-19 infection. 
     

     

    Physicals & Records

    PHYSICALS:  Physicals are required for all students entering grade 10 and transfer students. Yearly physicals are required for any student participating in school sports.  

    Grade 10 physicals need to include: Hemoglobin/Hematocrit, Height, Weight, Blood Pressure, Postural, Vision and Auditory screening, Chronic Disease Assessment and updated immunizations. Sport physicals are offered in the summer by our school physician free of charge or you may choose to have your own physician complete the physical.  The date and time for the sport physicals will be posted on the school web site.  Sport physicals remain current for 13 months from the date completed.  In order for a student to participate in tryouts a current physical needs to be on record in the Health Office.


    RECORDS: Physical exam or immunization records needed during the summer should be requested prior to the end of school year.
