Symptom Monitoring

  • Symptom Monitoring Reminders

    In order to maintain a healthy and safe environment it is extremely important that families are carefully monitoring the health of their student(s) and reporting any symptoms, close contacts or positive diagnosis of COVID-19 to their school nurse and following the guidance of the DuPage County Health Department (DCHD) for self-isolation and self-quarantine when necessary. 

    A few health reminders: 

    • All children must stay home from school if one person in the home is sick.
    • Only the molecular RT-PCR test can be accepted for negative test results. 
    • The requirement for a 14-day quarantine for close contacts remains in place for Naperville 203, regardless of the new 7- and 10-day quarantine options provided by the CDC. 

    Please direct any student-specific questions to your school’s health office.

    Families are asked to monitor their students closely for any of the following COVID-19 symptoms: 

    • Temperature of 100.4 (or greater) degrees Fahrenheit/38 degrees Celsius;
    • New Cough; 
    • New onset of moderate to severe headache;
    • Shortness of breath;
    • Sore throat; 
    • Vomiting; 
    • Diarrhea; 
    • abdominal pain from an unknown source; 
    • New loss of taste or smell; 
    • Fatigue from an unknown cause; 
    • Muscle and body aches; and
    • Any other COVID-10 symptoms identified by the CDC or IDPH

    Students experiencing any of the above symptoms should remain home and caregivers should report the symptoms in writing to the school nurse.  We are required by IDPH to consider any student experiencing one or more of the symptoms of COVID-19 as a possible case unless we receive an alternative diagnosis from a health care provider.  Students must meet Return to School criteria in order to participate in in-person learning or any other Naperville 203 sponsored event. 

    All Parents/Guardians are also required to complete the Student Self-Certification Form (Spanish) prior to a student participating in in-person instruction.
