Point Dume School COVID Protocol



  • Please take your child’s temperature and do a symptom screening on ProtectWell App each morning before school. Instructions are below.

  • Please don’t bring your child to school if they’re not feeling well. All absences will be excused for illness.

  • Please do not bring your child to school if they have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. *Isolation and quarantine policies apply to students who have symptoms or may have been exposed to COVID-19.  See below.

  • Should your child become ill while at school, we will count on you to arrange for the IMMEDIATE pick up of your child.  *Students who exhibit symptoms will be isolated from the rest of the student body and will be placed in the 1-1 testing room until parent or guardian arrives for pick up. 




  • Face Coverings are optional and based upon the health needs and concerns of the students.

  • California Department of Public Health Guidelines indicate that masks should cover nose and mouth completely. Please review the proper use of masks with your child(ren).

  • Students will remain at school for lunch.  Students will eat lunch outside of school.  Please send healthy lunches and snacks for your child(ren).  *If Lunches are dropped off, please place lunches on the Student Sign In desk and return to your car.  Students will not be called from their classrooms to receive lunch, nor will parents be allowed inside.  

  • Please send a water bottle.  A water filling station is available for all students.

  • Students will be required to wash hands during the school day.

  • Hand sanitizer is available in every classroom and at both the entrance and exit of the school.  Students are encouraged to use hand sanitizer when entering the school and classrooms.

  • Desks have been spaced apart, and sneeze shields are used to protect students.




  • All classrooms will be cleaned and sanitized nightly.

  • All bathrooms will be cleaned and sanitized nightly.


While students are on campus, we ask that all non-essential visitors make an effort not to come on site. Please call or email your concerns. In order to minimize the bodies on campus, we ask that all parents make an appointment if you need to see a staff member.

COVID-19 Exposure Protocol

A person is considered to have been exposed if they are one of the following:

  • An individual who was within 6 feet of the infected person for more than15 minutes over a 24-hour period, even if a non-medical face covering was worn.

  • An individual who had unprotected contact with the infected person’s body fluids and/or secretions of a person with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 (e.g., being coughed or sneezed on, sharing utensils or saliva, or providing care without using appropriate protective equipment).

  • Persons who were present in a cohort or classroom with an infected person during their infectious period.

Required: Students and employees with an exposure to COVID-19 should test for COVID-19, whether or not they have symptoms, and inform the school of test results. 


Exposed students and employees should self-quarantine (stay in their home or residence, separate from others) and monitor for symptoms for 7 days from their last contact with the case while infectious (as defined above).  


Students or employees must receive a negative test result during their quarantine period. If they remain asymptomatic and have negative test results on day 7 or later, they are released from quarantine after Day 7 and may return to school. However, they must continue to monitor their health and strictly adhere to COVID-19 prevention precautions through Day 14.

Symptoms of Confirmed COVID-19 Infection

Students and employees with symptoms of COVID-19 infection are not to return for in-person instruction until they have met CDPH criteria to discontinue home isolation for those with symptoms:

  • Cough

  • Shortness of Breath or Difficulty Breathing

  • Fever

  • Chills

  • Muscle Pain

  • Sore Throat

  • New Loss of Taste or Smell

  • Nausea, Vomiting, or Diarrhea


In order to return to school, students and employees must meet the 4 following criteria:
