Symptoms at School

Falling ill on campus

If a student exhibits symptoms of any virus or illness on campus, a trained faculty member will administer a rapid antigen test on the spot and the student will be sent home regardless of the test result.

This is in accordance with the new state Department of Health K-12 guidelines and the state administrative code WAC 110-300-0205.

Students may return to school the next day if symptoms fully resolve, and if they provide proof of a negative rapid antigen test result taken the morning they return.
