MVR-III School District
Halloween Guidance for COVID-19
As we enter the holiday season, this year’s celebrations will, and should, look different since we are still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our hope is families will avoid higher-risk activities and choose to celebrate with lower-risk options designed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Modifying holiday celebrations by providing proper physical distancing, hand sanitizing, and maintaining smaller groups are some simple ways you can help slow the spread.
MVR-III is working hard to keep it’s doors open and our students in school, but we need your help! By taking the following precautions, we can limit the need for students to miss school due to exposure:
Avoid large-group settings.
When around groups of people, strive to keep at least 6 feet away from others and wear a face covering. If 6 feet isn’t possible, distance the best you can.
Avoid allowing children to attend parties or sleepovers, especially if no safety protocols are being followed.
Stay home if you or your child are showing any symptoms of sickness. Err on the side of caution, even if you think it’s just allergies.
If a person in your home has been tested for COVID-19 and is awaiting results, stay home.
If a person in your home has tested positive for COVID-19, follow the health department guidance and directives for quarantining.
While we all want to enjoy traditional holiday activities, we all must understand that if we have COVID-19, or if we may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, we should not participate in in-person holiday festivities. Thank you for your continued partnership in helping us maintain a safe school environment.
