Coronavirus Information

This webpage is intended to share information regarding the Coronavirus disease.  As the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) share more information about the Coronavirus, we will update this webpage with the information. 

We want you to know that we are regularly in contact with the Shawano County Health Department.  Our school nurses work alongside school administrators to plan and respond to emerging communicable disease concerns following the guidance of the public health department and CDC recommendations.  

When can my student return if they test positive for COVID-19? 

Please provide a medical note from your student’s doctor if they are absent due to a prolonged illness or injury. 

Students and staff who test positive for Covid-19 should stay home for 5 days after symptoms start. Symptom onset is counted as day zero. They can return on day 6 as long as they are fever free and symptoms have improved. When they return, it is recommended to wear a mask at school on days 6 through 10. 

What should I do if my student has been exposed to someone who tested positive for Covid-19?  

Students and staff exposed to Covid-19 no longer need to quarantine and can attend school.  

Monitor your student for symptoms of Covid-19. If symptoms develop, keep your student home from school and get tested.   

It is recommended to wear a mask in public for 10 days and get tested on day 6 even if asymptomatic.  

COVID Testing:
The covid testing clinic located at Middle School will be closing. The last day onsite testing will be available is 1/31/2023. 

Our district will continue to provide free Covid-19 rapid antigen at-home test kits upon request to staff and families. Please contact your school office to request a kit.

Reminder: All Wisconsin households can order one free package of five rapid antigen tests each month through Say Yes COVID Test!
