Dear Parents:

I wanted to update you on the new quarantine protocols that are effective immediately for Calumet Public School. These guidelines were developed by the Oklahoma State Department of Health and the CDC.

  • A person can end self-quarantine at seven days after exposure if they test negative and have had no symptoms. The test can be a PCR or rapid test and should be taken within 48 hours of the end of the quarantine period.

We will require evidence of a negative test with dates before admittance is allowed. 

  • Without a test, a person should self quarantine for 10 days and monitor symptoms for four more days.

 The guidance says when a shortened quarantine is in place, the following also should be in place through 14 days after exposure:

  • Daily symptom monitoring

  • Mitigation strategies, including correctly and consistently wearing a face covering and social distancing

Although the State Department of Education has allowed an in school quarantine option for those who have been exposed, Calumet will not participate in this option. We simply do not have the staffing or the facility to keep these students away from the rest of our student body. Thank you for your understanding. Should you have any questions please reach out to our principals or myself. Stay Safe.
