Too Sick for School? (Spring 2021)
Reasons to keep your student home this year are different than in past years. Shoreline School District will follow guidelines from Public Health - Seattle & King County in deciding when students and staff need to stay home.
If your student has a known reason for a symptom (such as a cough due to asthma), contact your school nurse. You may need a note from a healthcare provider before your student returns to school.
If your student has any of the symptoms below, we recommend you contact a healthcare provider to see if they should be tested for COVID-19. If they test negative and have not been in close contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days, they may return to school after the symptoms have improved and have been 24 hours fever-free (without any fever-reducing medications, like Tylenol).
A list of free COVID-19 testing around King County is available here.
For any questions about these or other illnesses, contact your school nurse for more information.
