The district’s guidelines and those from the Ohio Department of Health outline how wearing a mask can prevent quarantines from school settings. For more information including how, why and when students are quarantined, visit West Carrollton School District COVID-19 Guidelines 2021-2022. The district said its guidelines are consistent with Ohio Department of Health K-12 Quarantine Guidelines.
“It is imperative students be kept home if not feeling well and that the school be informed. Please do not send your child to school if he or she has been exposed to COVID outside of school and notify the school,” the district stated. “That would include not participating in sports or any other extracurricular activity. Students who have tested positive should not come to school or participate in any sport or extracurricular activity.”
Students will get mask breaks throughout the day and will not be required to wear a mask outside as long as they are following appropriate social distancing measures, the district said. It will be continuing to deep clean throughout the day, providing hand sanitizer, teaching proper hand washing techniques and encouraging social distancing whenever possible.
The school district said it will be continuing to evaluate its mask policy during the coming weeks and to keep district families informed of any changes.
