COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Guidelines for the 2023-2024 School Year

Dear Brighton Families,

As a school we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our students, their families, and our faculty and staff.  Any student with symptoms of possible COVID-19 infection (temp of 100.4 or higher, persistent cough, severe headache, difficulty breathing, sore throat, runny nose, congestion, body or muscle aches, fatigue, diarrhea, loss of taste or smell) should consider being tested.  

Families should contact the school to report any student with a positive COVID-19 test.  The student should stay home for five (5) days from the date of the positive test result, regardless of vaccination status, previous infection, or symptoms.  Student athletes participating in sports should not return to athletic practice for five (5) full days.

If a student tests negative for COVID-19, then the student may return to school once fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and when other symptoms are resolving.
