As we continue to navigate through COVID-19 pandemic, parents, we need your assistance with ensuring safety for all of HMS faculty, staff and students. If someone in your home has tested positive for COVID-19 and your child is symptomatic, please follow the exclusion guidelines and contact Nurse Childs. If your child has been tested for COVID-19 and is awaiting results, contact our main office and keep your child at home until results have been provided. Parents, please contact Nurse Childs regarding COVID-19 related self quarantining. COVID-19 related absences are only provided if parents have contacted Nurse Childs and we have documented the COVID-19 absence. If you have any specific questions, please contact our main office.
