Arrival & Entry
Before Leaving Home
Parents must self-certify that their student is free of COVID symptoms before leaving home each school attendance day. The form is available on our website homepage at www.d94.org under the “link” icon. (The form must be completed in the morning to be valid. The night before will not be accepted.)
Entering the Building
When entering the building, students should have their school ID out ready to be scanned at one of several stations at either Entrance B or H. Each day, if a parent has self-certified their student is symptom free, the student will be allowed to enter the building. If a parent has not self-certified their student, the student will be screened by a staff member.
Any students who test positive for COVID will contacted by the school's health office to determine if they had close contact with any other students or staff. Families should also expect to be contacted by the local health department.
Lockers & Locker Rooms
In compliance with guidance from county health officials all locker rooms and lockers will be off limits to students. Students should be prepared to carry all items with them throughout the day in order to navigate their classes. Additionally, since locker rooms will not be utilized, students should wear clothing and shoes that are appropriate for Physical Education courses as they will not be able to change clothes.
All students must wear a mask at all times on campus (gaiters, bandanas, and masks with exhalation valves are not to be worn). Please visit the CDC's guidance on how to select a proper mask for school. Any students who refuse to wear or removes their masks will be sent home to engage in remote learning. If a student cannot wear a mask due to a medically diagnosed reason, documentation must be sent to the school nurse prior to the student arriving on campus.
Opt In Survey on PowerSchool
Beginning January 8, 2021, families will have to declare whether they will send their students to school on the presented 1/3 hybrid model. Families will log into Powerschool and make the declaration no later than 4:00 pm on Friday, January 15, 2021. Families who do not respond will be assigned to in person learning on the alphabetically assigned day.
At the end of 3rd quarter, families will have another chance to opt in for in person learning for the 4th quarter. Please use the information provided on our website about our plans for a return to in person learning to guide your decision as a family.
Out of State or International Travel
All students, families and staff are responsible for monitoring any quarantine requirements for any domestic or international destinations they may travel to and from and whether a quarantine period is required upon return. Please plan accordingly and communicate any plans with our school.
Students will not be issued lockers and will carry all needed items with them. Students must wear masks at all times during passing periods and must stay 6 feet apart in hallways. Students should proceed to their class in as timely a manner as possible. Students will not be allowed to congregate in common spaces and should make every effort to use restrooms during passing periods as passes during class periods will be limited.
Scenarios for a Possible Confirmed Case
What if a student feels symptomatic the morning of school?
Students experiencing any symptoms possibly related to COVID should not come to school and should consult their health care provider prior to returning to school. Students must report their absence and reason for their absence to the school. If your absence is related to COVID or COVID like symptoms our school health office will contact you to follow up.
What if a student feels ill or is symptomatic while at school?
If a student is ill or symptomatic at school the teacher will call the nurse and send the student to the nurse. If the illness includes COVID like symptoms the student will remain in the health office isolation room until they are picked up by a parent or guardian. The nurse will advise parents on the steps before the child can return to school including a negative COVID test or an appropriate period of isolation. Additionally, the classrooms that student has been in during the day will cleared, the students will be relocated and the room(s) will be disinfected prior to being used again.
What if my child or someone in our household tests positive for COVID?
Students testing positive for COVID or who have been in close contact with a COVID positive person must remain home for at least 14 days since last contact with the infected individual. We will follow up individually with each family to determine their exact return date. In the interim students should participate in their academic classes remotely as they are able. If more than one West Chicago High School student lives in a household and one sibling is COVID positive then both siblings will remain home from school.
What if someone in my child's class is symptomatic for COVID?
We will follow up with any symptomatic students to determine if they are positive for COVID. If a student is positive for COVID then any individuals who had close contact with the positive case will be notified.
What if someone in my child's class tests positive for COVID?
If any student or staff member tests positive for COVID the school will follow up with any individuals who had close contact (within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more) with that individual. Anyone having close contact with a COVID positive individual will have to quarantine for at least 14 days.
What if another student or the bus driver on the bus my child rides is symptomatic or tests positive for COVID? If your child had close contact with a COVID positive individual on the bus we will communicate with those parents and students to arrange their isolation period.
What if a teacher tests positive for COVID?
Our return to school plan is designed to ensure that all students and staff can occupy the same classroom without ever getting within 6 feet of one another for more than 15 minutes. If a teacher test positive for COVID and for some reason had close contact with a student then those students will be notified and directed to isolate for an appropriate period of time. If a teacher tests positive they will self quarantine and alternative arrangements for their classes will be made.
Parents must self-certify that their child(ren) is symptom free every morning prior to arriving to school. Please view this video for directions on how to do so. Or, you can visit selfcertify.d94.org, enter your child's ID number and take the survey. Self-certifying must happen in the morning every morning prior to arriving to school (do not complete the survey the evening before because the results will no longer be valid the next day). Student ID cards will be scanned upon arrival to determine if the survey was filled out the student can enter the school. If parents do not self-certify prior to arrival, students will have to be interviewed by a staff member to determine if they are symptom free.
Upon your return to school you will notice signs around the building directing students and staff to stay socially distant, to keep masks on and to wash hands frequently. All signs must be obeyed at all times.
All vending machines and water fountains have been turned off in compliance with guidance from local health departments. Please bring your own water bottle to school each day to ensure you are able to stay hydrated.
