Hello OCFSD Families,

The Oak Creek Health Department (OCHD) just recently updated the guidance they will provide to families regarding isolation for school-age children who test positive for COVID-19.  We would like to take this opportunity to share this with you so you are aware of what it means for your child and their return to school.

Updated Oak Creek Health Department Isolation Guidance - School-aged children who have tested positive for COVID-19 can end their isolation after 5 days if their symptoms have improved (including not having a fever) and they can reliably wear a mask at all times around others. 

Under this new guidance, students will be allowed to return to school after 5 days of isolation (the date of symptom onset is day 0) if symptoms have improved and they wear a mask for  5 days following isolation.  This new practice will go into effect immediately.

We continue to encourage all students and staff to stay home when sick and to consider wearing a face mask while at school as preventative measures against transmission of the virus to others.

Thank you for your ongoing patience and understanding as we continue to navigate this pandemic together and adapt to changing recommendations from public health authorities.

Bridget Kotarak, Assistant Superintendent
