Important Updates on COVID-19
Updated March 20th, 2023
The following policy will be effective March 20th, 2023
COVID-confirmed cases who are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms are advised to undergo a ”0+n” self-health monitoring period.
It is advised for COVID-confirmed cases with mild symptoms not to attend classes in person and stay at home until the symptoms ease, and to wear a mask at all times if it’s needed to go out.
Individuals comply with name registration, temperature check, and alcohol spray prior to entering the school.
Masks are now optional in campus,but masks will still be “required” while at the health center and on the school/shuttle buses.
Schools will have the discretion to mandate masks as needed.
It is suggested to wear a mask if anyone has a fever or respiratory symptoms.
Students are still required to have a mask at their disposal each day just in case it is needed.
- In order to protect our community, AAIA asks all community members to exercise caution and diligence in monitoring students’ own health. Use the following guidelines when determining if a student should be attending school:
1. Students may not attend school unless their body temperature is under 37.5 degrees without medication.
2. Students may not attend school if students are showing symptoms (such as fever, coughing, sore throat, fever, diarrhea, etc).
If a student is having a fever or showing Covid-like symptoms, he/she should remain home and seek medical attention immediately.
