NHSD requests that all student and staff COVID-19 cases be reported to the school principal and/or 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.
School districts are not required to conduct contact tracing or issue quarantine notices when a universal mask mandate is in effect and students are separated by at least three feet.
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).
