School Health Notice about Coronavirus (COVID-19)

This page will provide up to date information regarding the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Vista School values the health and safety of not only our students, faculty, and staff, but also the community and families impacted by our school.  We will do all that we can to keep informed and also keep our stakeholders informed about the latest news and movement of the virus.

PLEASE READ LATEST CHANGE IN
 COVID-19 UPDATE

Washington County = Low Risk Level

On May 13th Governor Cox issued a statement essentially waiving the mask requirement in schools for the “last week of school” whenever that may be. Vista’s continued mask wearing has been in an effort to comply with a guideline that was removed by the Governor’s statement.

Therefore, effective 8:00 AM on Monday May 17th, masks WILL NOT be required any longer to attend school for students, teachers or parent visitors. Obviously, individuals may still wear them if they choose but students will not be required as they have been to this point. We encourage respectful dialogue between students and parents with differing points of view about the wearing of masks. The opportunity for individual choice is something that many of us hoped for in this process and now that is available to each individual affiliated with Vista.

If a child or staff member is diagnosed with COVID, please notify Vista School. Your doctor should also notify the Board of Health and they will contact us. Our current guidelines require a 14 day quarantine from the date of diagnosis PLUS being symptom free. If the child is symptom free, he/she still has to wait the 14 calendar days. If your child still has some symptoms after the 14 days, they must wait until they are symptom free to return. Vista will notify you if your child has been exposed to COVID at school and make recommendations. You do not have the responsibility to notify other students of families.
