2022-2023 SDBRF COVID Guidance

Thank you to those of you that continue to reach out to administration and Board members to share your perspective when it comes to our COVID mitigation strategies.  We know that there is no way that everyone will be content with the decision making, however, hearing from a wide range of stakeholders is helpful! 

In alignment with the CDC updated guidance, the SDBRF will be sending students home when they have two or more COVID-like symptoms.  Families are encouraged to have their child tested.  If the test is negative for COVID, the student may come back to school when the symptoms are resolving and the student has been fever free for 24 hours without the assistance of fever reducing medicine.  Please remember that even before COVID, students that were actively experiencing flu-like symptoms were not supposed to attend school until they were fever free for 24 hours, without the assistance of fever reducing medicine, AND that their other flu-like symptoms were resolving.  This is still sound advice and is how we will operate moving forward.

If the student tests positive for COVID, then the student will be asked to stay home for five days, the test day counts as day "zero".  When the student returns after day five they are highly encouraged to wear a face covering for days 6 - 10.

We continue to collaborate with the Jackson County Health Department as well as all of our neighboring school districts to make sure our plans are in alignment with the recommendations as well as what will help us meet our goal of keeping as many kids in school as possible!

The School District of Black River Falls has registered as an onsite testing site, but as of 9.1.2022 we are waiting to be assigned our to our testing partner.  This will be updated as we know who will be testing and what that schedule will be.

We'd also like to share this document regarding the importance of wearing face coverings.
