• COVID 19

    The Republic School District has developed this page to address practices and procedures regarding coronavirus, COVID-19. In addition, resources from the CDC along with state and local health department are listed below. This page will also serve as a resource for event impacts regarding COVID-19. 

  • What You Can Do

    Families can support Republic School District in our efforts to keep students and staff healthy by:

     

    *Encourage HAND WASHING with soap and water for at least 20 seconds along with other healthy hygiene tips. 

     

    *Keeping children home if they are showing signs of illness. The most common symptoms of COVID-19 reported are fever, cough and trouble breathing. You can learn more at the CDC website:                                                                                          https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

     

    *Children should be kept home if they are ill and are fever free without fever-reducing medication such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

     

    *Minimize contact with others who are ill. If a student is directly exposed to a COVID-19 positive person they are asked to contact the school nurse so next steps can be determined. 

     

    *Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, especially when someone is ill.

     

    *For those who choose to travel, it is advised that prevention tips are followed. Upon return, it is important for individuals to monitor any change in their health and to notify the health department with questions or concerns.
