UPDATED STUDENT QUARANTINE GUIDELINES

Dear Parents and Guardians,
Zanesville City Schools is committed to the safety and health of our student and staff. The Ohio Department of Health has recently sent out NEW K-12 Student Quarantine Guidelines for “Mask to Stay Option” and “Test to Play Option."
These new guidelines offer an in-school alternative for students who have been exposed to COVID-19 in the classroom or during a school related activity. These changes incorporate mask wearing and testing to reduce the chance of spread of COVID-19 and to reduce the number of students being sent home to quarantine. The Isolation guidelines and procedures will remain the same for COVID-19 positive students and staff.
Please carefully read the new quarantine guidelines (LINKS BELOW) . If you have any questions regarding these new guidelines, please contact Kevin Appleman, Executive Director of Operations, at the Zanesville Board of Education (740-454-9751).
