Return to school protocol:
I truly appreciate your partnership as we strive to keep our students as healthy as possible. Please remember that children may return to school once they are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication AND free of illness-related vomiting or diarrhea for 24 hours.

If your child is exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms, a negative COVID test must be obtained prior to returning to school. Symptoms include fever (100.4 degrees or higher), new onset of moderate to severe persistent headache, shortness of breath, new cough, sore throat, vomiting, diarrhea, and new loss of taste or smell.

Transfer Students (from outside Illinois) – A State of Illinois Certification of Child Health Examination form is due upon entering Harper School in all grades.
