COVID-19 Policies and Recommendations

What should I do if I have COVID-19?
  • Stay home.  Contact the school (215-639-2102). You can return to school after 10 days have passed since your first symptoms appeared AND you have had no fever for at least 72 hours (three full days without the use of medicine that reduces fever) AND other symptoms have improved (for example, symptoms of cough or shortness of breath have improved). It is also recommended that you inform all of your close contacts within the previous 48 hours to let them know you are positive so they may seek guidance from their physician.
What should I do if I have COVID-19 related symptoms?
  • Stay home.  Contact the school (215-639-2102).  Call your doctor to see if he/she recommends getting tested for COVID-19.
What should I do if a family member or I have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19?
  • Stay home.  Contact the school (215-639-2102).  If you or a family member has been within 6 feet of a COVID positive case for 15 minutes or more (with or without a mask), you will need to quarantine.  You can return to school after 7 days after receiving a negative test result (test must occur on day 5 or later) or after 10 days without testing.
What does the school do?
  • The academic department will assess what can be done from home
  • With the guidance from the Director of College Guidance, Dean of Academics, and Director of Counseling, an individual education plan will be developed with assistance from the Technology department.
  • Administrators will monitor the progress of the student and adjust plan accordingly.
