NHSD requests that all student and staff COVID-19 cases be reported to the school nurse.
NHSD will track known COVID-19 cases online and consult with the Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) and follow their guidance when needed.
Without a mask mandate, the district is no longer exempt from contact tracing. Students identified as close contacts will be contacted as detailed here.
Under current state and local guidelines, there is no circumstance that would require a school or building closure due to COVID-19.
Illness & Quarantine
Students and staff should stay home when sick and not return to school until they are symptom and fever-free for 24 hours without medication.
Federal, state and local guidelines should be followed for when a student or staff member with COVID-19 or known exposure can return to school.
If a student is required to quarantine, learning will continue asynchronously through Google Classroom as communicated by the student’s teacher(s).
