COVID-19 Procedure

If your student tests positive for COVID-19, please notify us.

Students with Symptoms

All students who have any of the following symptoms must stay home until symptom-free: fever, cough, shortness of breath, muscle/body aches, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. Students who have these symptoms while on campus will be sent home and will be required to quarantine for 10 days (regardless of vaccination status). Proof of a negative COVID-19 test will end this 10 day quarantine. Student must also be symptom-free to return. 

Close Contacts

Any student considered a "close contact" to a positive case on campus will be individually notified by administration to quarantine for 10 days. A negative COVID-19 test result will not end quarantine as a close contact. Students who are fully vaccinated but are considered a close contact do not have to quarantine.

Close Contacts to Family Members

If someone in a student's household tests positive for COVID-19, the student must quarantine for 20 days. 10 days from when the positive household member started having symptoms (or 10 days from when the positive household member took the COVID-19 test if they have no symptoms) plus an additional 10 days in case the student converts to positive. A negative COVID-19 test result for the student will not end quarantine as a close contact. Students who are fully vaccinated but have a household member who tests positive do not have to quarantine.

Manzano health office

Please keep the health office informed yearly of any health conditions, medications, or concerns. We are here to support our students. Also, please ensure contact information is up to date in case of emergency.

Medications At School

If your student requires medications or procedures at school, the proper form must be completed and signed by a physician each school year - see health office form links to the left. If deemed appropriate by a physician, students may self-carry/administer medications. Forms are still required for students self-carrying. Students cannot self-carry/administer medications classified as "controlled" (i.e. most ADHD medications). 

All medications provided for use in the health office must include the prescription label. Over the counter medications must be in a new, unopened bottle. We cannot accept expired medications.

Parents are required to pick up non-emergency medications at the end of the school year or the medications will be discarded by health office staff. Reminders will be sent home mid-May.
