Test to Learn/Test to Play:
USD 372 will participate in a modified in-school quarantine option available in Shawnee County. It is called Test to Learn/Test to Play because it provides a way for students to safely continue to attend school and participate in activities while in quarantine, thereby supporting academic success and social/emotional health. To participate, the student must meet eligibility criteria, and parents must consent for the student to (for the duration of the quarantine) wear a mask when indoors and be tested daily with an antigen and/or PCR test. The student will not be in close contact with other students or staff at school until a negative test result is known. This includes riding the bus and carpooling. Those who do not consent to participate will complete quarantine at home.
Eligible students for Test to Learn/Test to Play must meet all of the following criteria:
The close contact occurred at school or during a school-related event.
At least one of the involved students wore a mask correctly for the entire duration of the event, which mitigated the exposure and risk.
The student does not already meet criteria for quarantine exemption.
