(Updated) District Guidelines following the changes for Quarantines
Effective December 2, 2020 the Center for Disease Control issued new guidance reducing the number of days close contacts will need to quarantine following an exposure to a COVID-positive individual. Below,
we’ve highlighted the changes that will be implemented immediately at
1. 10-Day Quarantine
An individual identified as a close contact will be required to quarantine for 10 days following the
last date of exposure. Individuals must be symptom free for at least 24 hours prior to returning.
2. Negative Test (on or after Day 6)
An individual identified as a close contact and required to quarantine may end their quarantine and
return back to school on or after day 8 if they provide documentation of a negative test that was
completed on or after day 6 following the last date of exposure and must also be symptom-free for at
least 24 hours prior to returning.
Tomorrow, Friday, December 18th, will be the final day of school prior to the holiday break. There will be NO SCHOOL on Monday, December 21 or Tuesday, December 22. On behalf of the staff and school board at Valley City Public Schools, we hope that you all have a very healthy and enjoyable holiday break. We look forward to seeing students back in the classroom on Monday, January 4th.
