2022-2023 COVID-19 PLAN AND POLICY
- ESN will continue its “mask recommended” policy from the spring. Because there is always the risk of complications from “Long Covid,” ESN recommends children and adults to wear masks indoors while Davidson County remains in the CDC’s “high” community transmission category.
- We will continue to follow CDC for quarantine/isolation protocols: Individuals with a positive case will be required to complete a minimum isolation period of five days, returning to school on day 6 (so long as they are symptom free) and wearing a mask around others for 10 days from symptom onset or from the testing date if asymptomatic.
- We will continue to require students to wear a mask around others for 10 days if there has been a confirmed positive case in the household: We ask that you inform Dr. Swett and your child’s teacher so he/she is aware and can support mask wearing for the duration of the timeline.
- Mandated masking a possibility: We reserve the right to mandate a class or division or the school to wear masks indoors if there is a need (two or more cases in a classroom for example).
- We will continue to communicate positive cases: We will continue to send an email out to parents by class as and when positive cases occur, and we will provide statistics in aggregate in the weekly parent blast.
- No temperature check: We will no longer continue to require a temperature check upon arrival for students.
- Communicate with Dr. Swett and/or your child’s teacher: If your child tests positive, please contact Dr. Swett and your child’s teacher as soon as possible. Dr. Swett can be reached at email@example.com. Also, if there has been a confirmed positive case in the household, please inform Dr. Swett and your child’s teacher so we are aware and can support mask wearing at school.
