Mount Carmel Policy Regarding School, Athletic and Activities Participation and COVID

In order to strike a balance between extreme caution regarding the spread of COVID and the good of school, athletic and activities participation for our students, we will do the following when a student is exposed to COVID:

For vaccinated students with no symptoms:
  • Attend school and participate in athletics and activities as normal;
  • Monitor student’s health at all times (cold/flu symptoms, congestion, cough, fever, etc.); and
  • Wear mask as required, where required (school, public spaces, etc.).

For vaccinated students with symptoms:
  • Stay home from school and refrain from athletic and activities participation.  Get a COVID test (over-the-counter is acceptable) and return only  if/when the  test is negative;
  • If COVID test is positive and you have symptoms, isolate for a minimum of 5 days with no school, athletic or activities participation.   Return to school, athletic and activities participation only if and when you are symptom-free.

For unvaccinated students with no symptoms who have been exposed to COVID: 
  • Get a COVID test (over-the-counter is acceptable) and return only if/when test is negative;
  • If test is negative, attend school and participate in athletics as normal;
  • Monitor student’s  health at all times (cold/flu symptoms, congestion, cough, fever, etc.); and
  • Wear mask as required, where required (school, public spaces, etc.).
  • The date of your exposure is considered day 0. Day 1 is the first full day after the last contact with a person thought to be COVID positive.

For all unvaccinated students with symptoms:
  • Stay home from school and refrain from school, athletic and activities participation.  Get a COVID test (over-the-counter is acceptable) and return only if/when the test is negative.  Negative test results must be submitted as follows: take a picture and time/date stamp it, then email it to Ms. Luecker at jluecker@mchs.org before returning to school;
  • If COVID test is positive and you have symptoms, isolate for a minimum of 5 days with no school, athletic or activities participation.   Return to school, athletic and activities participation only if and when you are symptom-free.
NOTICE TO ALL FAMILIES: If your son’s vaccination status changes, please inform the school of that change by emailing Ms. Luecker confidentially at jluecker@mchs.org.
