A Healthy Start to the 2022-2023 School Year

As the new school year is about to begin, NFV wants to share some guidance around illnesses, including COVID-19, in order to keep our schools healthy and safe. The health and well-being of our students and staff is always a top priority and we are always working closely with our local and state health departments to monitor and respond to illness trends. Together, we can all help make sure the 2022-23 school year gets off to a healthy start!

Please follow these general steps to help keep our schools healthy during 2022-23:

GENERAL ILLNESS GUIDANCE

  • Stay home when sick.
  • Individuals should remain home until symptoms are improved.
  • Individuals must be free from fever, diarrhea, or vomiting for 24 hours.
  • Notify the school nurse with significant health needs or concerns.

COVID-19

  • Everyone should be aware that exposure to the COVID-19 virus could happen at any time and any place, and monitor for symptoms accordingly.
  • Experts believe we will continue to see periodic waves of infection, and reinfections may be common.
  • Monitor our community level, understand exposure risks, and utilize the available tools:

Contact your school nurse if you have additional questions or concerns about isolation, exposure, or returning to sport after infection.
