Westside Consolidated School District Ready to Learn Plan - Updated

February 2, 2022

Yesterday, Governor Hutchinson updated the protocols for contact tracing and quarantine guidelines for the students and staff of public schools. These new guidelines allow school districts to cease contact tracing and quarantines due to Covid-19 probable close contact exposure. Therefore, beginning Thursday, February 3, 2022, Westside Consolidated will adjust our protocols to match this new directive. We will continue to contact trace probable close contacts, but where, in the past, we would have required a quarantine of these probable close contacts, we will now reach out to the parents and alert them of the possible exposure. As long as the student or staff stays symptom free, they will be allowed to remain in school. Any student or staff that tests positive for Covid-19 will follow current ADH rules on isolation and quarantining. As has been the case for the entirety of the pandemic, if you have questions regarding positive cases, please reach out to WSD’s Point of Contact (POC) Mrs. Holli Crowe at 243-9156, or hcrowe@westsideschools.org

At a specially called Westside Consolidated School Board meeting last night, in an effort to increase the safety of our students and staff, the school board voted to start the school year with a mask mandate regardless of vaccination status. This mask mandate will include all students and staff where social distancing can not be achieved. This mandate will extend to bus transportation as well. This mandate will be re-evaluated at every subsequent board meeting until such time as the pandemic has lessened to a point where the masks can be discarded. If you have questions as to how this impacts you, please reach out to your building principal or the superintendent's office.
