TMS Illness Policy
- If your student is not feeling well and needs to stay home from school, please inform your student’s homeroom teacher and the front desk at [email protected].
- If your student has a fever, vomiting, or diarrhea, they will need to stay home at least 24 hours from the time the fever, vomiting, or diarrhea has resolved without the aid of medication.
- Any student with a fever, vomiting, or a new loss of taste or smell should test for COVID-19 before returning to school. Home test kits are available at the school.
- If your student has tested positive for COVID-19, the student should isolate for at least five full days, with Day 0 being the first day of symptoms or the day of the positive test result. Please notify Executive Director Dr. Kelbaugh of the positive test result at [email protected]
