COVID19 Protocols

The new CDC guidance is as follows with close contacts and positive cases:

If you test positive for Covid, you should quarantine for 5 days from the start of symptoms with the first day of symptoms counting as day 0. You may leave quarantine after day 5 but must continue masking when around others for days 6-10. 

If you have been told you are a close contact, you may attend school if you do not have any symptoms however, you are required to wear a mask for 10 days from the last day of contact with the individual and monitor for symptoms. Siblings and same household members are required to wear a mask for 16 days.  If you are still asymptomatic, you should test on day 6.  

Moreover, if you are experiencing any symptoms, please stay home and get tested sooner. In all cases, consult your primary care provider for further advice. 

Staff members and students who tested positive or have come into close contact with any individuals who tested positive for COVID-19 are encouraged to contact their building certified school nurse to report the illness and the CSN will review the date of quarantine and mask wearing requirements. 

Thank you for keeping our community safe.

Students and staff are encouraged to do the following to help prevent the spread of illness at home and in school:

· Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

· Wash your hands frequently.

· Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

· Stay home when you are sick.

· Cover your mouth and nose with the inside of your elbow when you cough and sneeze.

· Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

· Practice social distancing and wear a mask.


The Lehigh Valley Academy Regional Charter School will continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates as needed.

Please know the health and safety of our students and staff is our utmost priority. If you have any questions or concerns about this information, please contact Susan Mauser, CEO at [email protected]
