Covid Update - 1/5/2022

Upper Scioto Valley Schools
RE-opening Guidelines 
Updated 1/5/2021 (Changes highlighted)
Upper Scioto Valley Schools will open school for the 2021/2022 school year as normally as possible.  We will have the following guidelines that will be followed.
  • Masks will be optional for all staff, students, and visitors.  This is a personal choice. 
  • We ask students and staff to continue monitoring their health for signs/symptoms of Covid.
  • Students and staff that test positive will be quarantined for 10 days or for 5 days if asymptomatic may return after five days and a mask would be required for the additional 5 days and students will be required to check-in with Nurse Hollon before going to class on these additional five days.
  • Students and staff that have been exposed:
    1. If symptomatic quarantine for 5 days and test.
    2. If asymptomatic test as soon as possible if negative return and wear a mask for ten days, report to Nurse Hollon before going to class daily.
  • Families that do not wish for children to wear a mask may quarantine for 10 days rather than coming to school with a mask.
  • USV will communicate positive cases through the various forms of communication with families.
  • USV will continue to encourage social distancing when educationally feasible to do so.
  • USV will continue many of the sanitation procedures put in place last year.  
  • USV will continue to upgrade and improve the indoor air quality in all buildings on our campus.
  • USV students are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school and limit use of water fountains.
Please understand that USV cannot control any state or national mandates that may develop concerning Covid-19. Nor, as a public entity, can we openly violate any mandates that may arise. We will continue to work with the Hardin County Health Department as needed.  We appreciate your continued support of Upper Scioto Valley Schools and we look forward to a successful 2021-22 school year!
