New: Monitor, Mask and Return Protocol

Effective Wednesday, January 12, 2022

NEW! Staff and students who test positive for COVID-19 and have not experienced any symptoms of illness may choose an option to end isolation and return to work or school on Day 6. Staff and students must follow the KPBSD Monitor, Mask and Return Protocols to return to school or work:


  1. Be symptom free from illness (asymptomatic) on Days 0-5. The first day of a positive COVID-19 test is Day 0. If you have never developed symptoms of illness, on Day 6 you may return to work or school, and strictly follow the KPBSD Monitor, Mask and Return protocol.


  • Wear a well-fitting mask in school at all times days 6-10. If any symptoms of illness develop, you must stay home and isolate. When you cannot wear a face covering (i.e., when eating or drinking) you should maintain a minimum of six feet of distance from other individuals to every extent possible.

Athletes: In addition to the above protocols, to continue to participate in school sponsored co-curricular activities, athletes must also continue Daily Symptom Check Protocols.

Do you have symptoms and a positive COVID-19 test?

KPBSD staff and students who have COVID-19 and have or had symptoms may return to school or work ten days after their positive COVID-19 test or symptom onset date. They must be fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication.

KPBSD is continuing to work with public health and may make revisions to this protocol in the next few weeks.


  • Isolation separates someone who is infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 (or presumed to be infected because they have symptoms) away from people who are not infected, including household members.
  • Quarantine separates people who were exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 from others, including household members, during the time when they could become sick and infect others.
