Students and family members are expected to take an active approach to protecting themselves and others. Here are some guidelines that will help achieve our goal of Keeping Ogden Healthy.
- During the student registration process families should indicate any known health conditions which could result in a student being considered a high-risk for susceptibility to illness.
- Help children become accustomed to wearing a face mask before returning to school.
- Students must wear a face mask or some form of face cover while in school when physical distancing (6 feet) is not reasonably possible*.
- Schools will provide two (2) reusable face masks for each student. Families must wash reusable face masks after each daily use.
- Students must wash their hands thoroughly when using the restroom.
- Students are encouraged to wash their hands or use hand sanitizer following direct physical contact with other students, school staff and high-contact areas and objects such as doorknobs, shared computers and playground equipment.
- Students should avoid touching other students and school employees
- Parents, family members and other school visitors must wear a face mask or some form of face cover when physical distancing (6 feet) is not reasonably possible.
- Families will monitor for potential symptoms of COVID-19, including checking the temperature of students. If a member of the household is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, students should not attend school. Symptoms may include:
Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
Families will verify current and complete contact information for parents, guardians and emergency contacts listed in student records.
If a student begins to experience symptoms while at school, families will check-out the student from school as quickly as possible
Families will immediately notify their schools if a member of the household is diagnosed with COVID-19. All students in the household should be kept isolated from school until they are approved to return by the school and the Weber-Morgan Health Department.
Schools will not release the names of students or family members diagnosed with COVID-19. However, as guided by the Weber-Morgan Health Department, schools will notify other students and school employees if they have been in close contact with an individual who has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
Families should talk to students about the responsibility of preventing the possible spread of infection. This includes:
Limiting direct physical contact at school
Maintaining proper hygiene including frequent and thorough hand washing
Responsible use of hand sanitizer
Notifying a teacher or school staff if a student begins to experience symptoms of illness
Obeying instructions from teachers and school staff
Following directions for seating during class and movement through hallways during passing periods
Families should promote an environment that allows students to feel safe to express concerns or ask questions.
*Students whose health requires an alternative arrangement may file a Student Mask Exemption Request.
