IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATES
Mr. Fitzpatrick recently emailed everyone about the updates to our school’s reopening plan related to Covid-19.
If a current PCS student is diagnosed with Covid-19, in addition to keeping the student at home and quarantined until cleared for re-entry into our school by a medical professional, the family must notify the school nurse on the appropriate campus so that the school, in coordination with the Bucks County Board of Health, can take appropriate further actions including additional deep cleaning, contact tracing, and class-wide or school-wide communication if necessary.
If a member of a current student’s household is diagnosed with Covid-19, the school nurse at the appropriate school campus must also be notified immediately so that the school can determine whether the student will need to be quarantined at home or placed into a modified quarantine. In the event that a modified quarantine is permissible, the student would be able to attend all classes, but will need to eat lunch away from his or her peers and must wear a mask throughout the day. The specific number of days a student is in a stay-at-home quarantine or a modified quarantine will be determined from the outset by consulting with the Bucks County Board of Health.
