Westside’s response preserves our goals of doing all we can to protect the health of our community as well as prioritizing consistent in-person learning. This is a rapidly evolving situation and may change again. Our Westside team has been working closely with our medical advisory group of physicians, as well as following the latest recommendations from the CDC and the Washington Dept. of Health. **All COVID-19 guidelines and expectations apply to INDIVIDUALS, not HOUSEHOLDS**
COVID-19 Tests: Per the guidelines below, if you need to provide a negative test, it must be an Antigen, Viral, or PCR COVID tests. We will not accept antibody tests.
Students should not attend school when they have a contagious disease, diarrhea, a fever (100.4 or above), have been vomiting within the last 24 hours, have yellow-green mucus discharging from their nose, or when they are in the early stages of a cold. Please send your child back to school only after they are symptom-free and have had a normal temperature for 24 hours without medication. If a student becomes sick at school, their parents/guardians or a specified person will be called to take them home.
