Unvaccinated individuals who travel out of state by plane are required to quarantine for 7 days with a negative COVID-19 test or for 10 days without a test before returning to school. This policy is based on the current CDC guidelines.
Get tested with a viral test 3-5 days after travel AND stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel.
Even if you test negative, stay home and self-quarantine for the full 7 days.
If your test is positive, isolate yourself to protect others from getting infected.
If you don’t get tested, stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel.
Families will be responsible for screening their children at home for COVID-19 symptoms.
Students, teachers, and staff who have symptoms of infectious illness, such as influenza (flu) or COVID-19, should stay home and be referred to their healthcare provider for testing and care.
If your child has any of the primary symptoms of COVID-19 (fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea), they should not attend school.
If a child develops symptoms while at school, they will be removed from the classroom, and the family will be required to pick up the student as soon as possible.
Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is the best way to stop the pandemic, and the most powerful tool for stopping the spread of COVID-19. We strongly recommend that all of our students, staff, and family members who are eligible for the vaccine, be vaccinated for the safety of our community.
If your child becomes ill while at school, we may provide them with a self-administered COVID-19 rapid test if we have a current waiver form on file. Please fill out this form and return it to PJA. You may scan it and email it as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail a printed hard copy to PJA Office, 6651 SW Capitol Highway, Portland, OR 97219.
