CIM Protocols for when your child is sick

Hello CIM families,

We understand there has been some confusion and uncertainty when it comes to your child being sick, and what CIM’s protocols are.

If you child has chills, painful swallowing, stuffy nose, headache, muscle aches, fatigue, gastro issues, loss of smell or taste, or pink eye – they must remain home until their symptoms resolve.  After they are feeling better they are welcome to return to school.

If your child has fever, cough, shortness of breath, runny nose, or a sore throat, they are LEGALLY required to isolate for 10 days from the start of the symptoms or until they resolve, whichever is LONGER. IF your child has been tested and has come back negative, they are welcome to return to school ONLY when their symptoms have resolved.  CIM does not require proof of a negative test. Also if you keep your student home and they are well enough to participate in learning, let your teacher know and she can set up some work in Google Classroom.

In either scenario, call in to the school to let Ms. MacPherson know your child is sick. Please include what symptoms your children are experiencing.  If you choose to isolate for 10 days, please let us know so we can mark your child out for that period of time.

Appointments: If you are dropping off your child late because of an appointment, please use the main front door and have your child check in with Ms. MacPherson so she can mark them in.  Also if picking up for an appointment, call in to let Ms. MacPherson know what time you are coming and she will have them at the main front door for you.

We thank you for your patience and understanding. We know it is a difficult time with cold & flu season.  We will get through it together!

Yours in learning,

Stacey Swanson
