Here are some ways to protect your family and your school:
✓ Keep children who are sick at home. Don’t send them to school.
✓ Teach your children to wash hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds. Be sure to set a good example by doing this yourself.
✓ Teach your children to cover coughs and sneezes with tissues or by coughing into the inside of the elbow. Be sure to set a good example by doing this yourself.
✓ Teach your children to stay at least six feet away from people.
✓ People who are sick should stay home from work or school and isolate until they are better. As much as you can, isolate sick family members from others in your household.
✓ If your student has traveled out of state recently, please know that returning travelers may not attend in-person school until 14 days have passed or until they or their guardian have received two negative COVID-19 tests. For details, see State of Alaska Health Mandate 10.
