    South Haven Stay, Learn, and Play Plan for 2021-22 School Year

    The South Haven B0ard of Education, at their August 8 meeting, approved the guidelines for how school will be conducted during the 2021-22 school year regarding COVID-19 exposure. The guidelines are: 

    Close Contact Definition-

    • You were within 6 feet of someone who has COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more
    • You provided care at home to someone who is sick with COVID-19
    • You had direct physical contact with the person (hugged or kissed them)
    • You shared eating or drinking utensils
    • They sneezed, coughed, or somehow got respiratory droplets on you

    Quarantine Options-

    • If vaccinated-no quarantine necessary
    • Quarantine at home for 10 days from last exposure, if you have no symptoms you may return on day 11.  (No testing option)
    •  Quarantine at home for 8 days from last exposure, if you have no symptoms, you may get a PCR test on Day 7 and if it is negative you may return on Day 8.
    • If you are a close contact, you may get a daily nasal swab (Antigen test) for 8 days after exposure at the school. If the test is negative, you may go to school and participate in activities that day. 

    If you are positive-

    • If symptomatic-10 days from appearance of symptoms and 72 hours fever free
    • IF asymptomatic-10 days after positive test



    For students testing at school:

    • Students/families can opt in for testing at school due to contact with an individual who has tested positive:

      • Each student will need a consent form to be signed and will be required to wear a mask throughout the day. 

      • Please have students at the school in time to take the test and get to class on time. 

    • Testing will take place in the North Commons starting at 7 am. 
    • USD 509 is currently using Covid-19 antigen tests. 

      • The tests have a 15 minute waiting period before results are available.

      • If the student tests negative, the student is allowed to remain in school and participate in school events. Students will be required to wear a mask on days that require testing.

      • Regardless of a negative test, outside of school the student would still need to be quarantined due to their recent exposure. 

      • The KDHE STAY to LEARN and PLAY Guidelines only apply during school contact hours. 

    For more information about the school's response to COVID, KDHE guidelines, and USD 509 Protocols for On-Site Testing, please visit the COVID Guidelines page under the District tab.

    USD 509 has opening for  Baseball Coach
