Dear Eagle Nation,
Greetings! The purpose of this communication is to share with you information related to the District’s mask policy and symptoms checks that are to be done before coming to school every day.
First, each school district in Ohio was required to develop and approve a mask, or face coverings, policy. Our District has done that, and it is being posted, along with this announcement, for our parents, guardians, and staff members to review. Along with the policy, a set of administrative guidelines was also developed, and those are also being posted.
In short, please know that masks are required on campus at all times, with some exceptions applying. Those exceptions are outlined in the policy and the administrative guidelines. Anyone not willing to comply with the policy will need to leave campus. Again, please read the policy and the guidelines related to the wearing of masks.
Secondly, in order for us to have the best chance of being able to keep our students in school, it is important that anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19 not come to school. As such, all staff and students must do a symptom check every morning before leaving home to come to school. If anyone has even one symptom, they are not to come to school.
The symptoms of COVID-19 are as follows: fever (over 100 degrees Fahrenheit), chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.
Again, any person displaying even one symptom should not come to school. Also, if your child needs to stay at home, please remember to call their absences in to the school office daily.
I know these are challenging times. Please know we are doing our best to try to meet the expectations that have been given to us in order to provide our students and staff the safest possible environment and the best learning experience we can.
Thank you, in advance, for your support of and cooperation with these policies, guidelines, and expectations.
Chad Eisler, Superintendent
Madison-Plains Local School District
