Contact Tracing & Quarantine Impacts

  • In the event of a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, the Snoqualmie Valley School District will follow required public health contact tracing guidelines and quarantine measures.  New tools such as our Health Screen/Attestations will help us monitor health trends and track the duration of required quarantines. Additionally, the Bus Smart Tag cards (when available) could help identify potential exposure scenarios.

     

    As required by public health, if an individual who has been at school receives a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, a close contact investigation will be initiated to determine if others may need to quarantine as a precaution.  Parents of students determined to be in close contact will be notified confidentially and the students will be required to quarantine for 14 days.

     

    Quarantined Students:

    • Monitor your personal health, and if you do not feel well, contact your healthcare provider.
    • As long as you stay well, continue to work with your teacher to access distance learning options.

     

    We recognize that this could result in individuals or groups of students and staff needing to transition between on-campus and distance learning environments, as we are directed by the health department.  We will do what is needed to support this flexibility and adapt instructional support as needed during this pandemic.
