COVID-19 Back to School Guidelines

COVID-19 Back to School Guidelines


  • Students and Staff are only required isolation with a positive test (5 days from the onset of symptoms or 5 days from positive test if no symptoms).
  • Masking on return to school (days 6-10) is recommended, but no longer required.
  • In order to return on day 6, the individual must be fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medication.
  • The positive person does not require a negative test in order to return to school (completion of isolation is adequate).


Please communicate with your building nurse regarding all positive tests. Finally, there are no isolation requirements for close contacts. Any student choosing to quarantine without a positive test will be considered unexcused from school. If you have any questions regarding this updated guidance, please reach out to our corporation nurse at 765-689-9131 x1310, or collinsk@maconaquah.k12.in.us


Below you will find a link to the Indiana Department of Health website. We ask that for COVID-19 related issues you please direct your interest to the "COVID-19 Guidance" section of the website. This section is straight from the Indiana Department of Health. As stated above, these will also be the guidelines that we use and that were sent to us from the school nurse (who would be contacted in any case/questions regarding to COVID-19).
