Student Screening & Exposure

COVID-19 Student Hotline
In order to maintain our increased in-person learning, it is vital that we are able to identify positive COVID-19 cases in our schools immediately so that contract tracing and quarantining can begin. This is essential to reducing further spread within our schools.

Please call the AASD COVID-19 Student Hotline as soon as you are notified of a positive test result for your student. The hotline can be reached at (920) 832-4100. The hotline is available 24 hours per day. The message inbox is monitored weekdays and Sundays from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. The hotline instructions are available in English, Hmong, and Spanish.

When you call to report a positive COVID-19 result for your student, please leave a detailed message that includes the student’s name, date of birth, school, guardian name, and phone number where you can be reached. A school nurse will be in touch with you to discuss your student’s positive COVID-19 results. Please ensure all other household members are not reporting to school. Families should also call your student's school to alert them of your student’s absence.

The hotline should not be used for other reasons. If you have questions about your student’s health or attendance, please call your student’s school.

COVID-19 Isolation and Quarantine Calculator
To help understand the number of days a student needs to isolate or quarantine, we have created this guide for students and families. Starting May 17, 2021 the quarantine time period for (asymptomatic) close contacts will reduce from 14 days to 10 days for staff and students.

Home Screening Expectations
Students are expected to screen for symptoms of COVID-19 daily prior to coming to school. Use the Illness and Screening Guide for daily screenings.

Students with symptoms of COVID-19 should stay home from school and contact the school office.

Your student will be escorted by a staff member to the Health Isolation Room with their belongings. You will receive a call to pick up your student and all other AASD siblings immediately.

Your student will be escorted by a staff member outside to meet you. Staff will give you an Isolation Room Handout on next steps and a return to school date.

Students with symptoms of COVID-19 will be required to stay home for 10 days from the onset of symptoms, as long as symptoms are improving and they have been fever free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications.

Continue online learning if the student is well enough to do so. If not, please notify your school office.

If your student gets tested for COVID-19, they must provide a negative PCR test result.
