**Updated translation of the COVID-19 Plan is pending.
As health experts learn more about COVID-19, this document may continue to evolve to better inform school operations in Missouri and provide guidance on further protocols to prevent the spread of this virus. It is also important to note that the school board and local jurisdictions have the authority to implement more or less restrictive preventative measures as the need arises. This plan will be reviewed at the monthly Board of Education meeting.
Thank you to our stakeholders groups for providing the District input on the plan. Stakeholders include; Pacific High School students, parents, staff, and the Board of Education.
Contact the Communication Department for a copy of the plan in another language.
Frequently Asked Questions
Please let us know if your child receives the vaccine
If your child receives the vaccine, please notify your school nurse with either a copy of their CDC vaccine card or medical documentation stating when the student received their vaccines. Our schools are following the CDC guidelines when it comes to determining if a student needs to remain off campus following an exposure. In most instances, a fully vaccinated student will not be asked to remain off campus following close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19.
What should I do if my child(ren) has failed the morning routine self-check screener?
Students with symptoms should not attend school and parents should consult their healthcare provider and follow CDC considerations regarding their return to school. For students who are diagnosed with COVID-19, either by a laboratory test or based on their symptoms, return to school is permissible when the student is at least 10 days from symptom onset, has had three days with no fever, and has improving symptoms. Return to school for children with an alternate diagnosis is at the discretion of their healthcare provider and/or the school nurse. Children with a known close contact with COVID-19 (or an adult with symptoms compatible with COVID-19) should stay home for 14 days from their last contact and until return to school is approved by the local health department in accordance with the CDC guidance. Please notify the school nurse of your child(ren)'s symptoms.
