The Safely On Campus (SOC) guidelines detailed here are based on current health requirements, state licensing, accreditation standards, and best practices for small schools.

Sick Policy

A school is a unique environment where students, teachers, and staff are in close contact on a regular basis, and illness can spread quickly. To ensure the health and safety of all persons on campus, please do not bring your child to school if they are exhibiting symptoms of illness. Symptoms of illness include fever, lethargy, pale skin, green nasal mucus, vomit, headache, and/or complaints of discomfort, including being tired. If a student develops symptoms while at school, they will be sent to the Infirmary, to determine if a call should be made to the parent for pick-up.

After illness has passed (i.e. no fever for at least 24 hours) and students are exhibiting improving symptoms, they may return to school. If a student feels well and has only residual symptoms – occasional coughing, sneezing, clear runny nose – they may return to school. 

If someone tests positive for COVID-19, CDPH and Oak Grove School recommend the following:

  • Stay home for at least 5 days after start of symptoms (Day 0) or after date of first positive test (Day 0) if no symptoms
  • After Day 5, if symptoms have resolved or are mild and improving and fever has been resolved for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication), you may return to school
  • Anyone returning before Day 10 should wear a mask while indoors

If your student is exhibiting symptoms related to seasonal allergies or asthma, we ask you to provide a note from your healthcare provider. Notes from healthcare providers are valid for 90 days.
