Welcome to RCS Health Services. You'll find important resources, key updates, and more below.
RCS Health Clinic
Resurrection Christian Schools' Health Services Department supports student learning by providing health consultation and resources to support students and their family. RCS has a Registered Nurse that consults with students, parents, school staff, and administration to provide optimum school health.
Please notify your RCS Health Services of any significant health condition that will need intervention at school. RCS also has a school health aide who does day-to-day care of students including: medication, bandages, ice, and minor care.
Please keep your child’s health concerns updated at registration and as conditions change during the school year. It is also critical that we have current contact details so help us by keeping phone numbers updated.
RCS Covid Policy for 2022-2023 School Year as of August 24, 2022
Testing is recommended for all COVID-like symptoms, but is not required. A negative test is not required to return.
Quarantine is no longer required for household or classroom exposures.
Self Reporting is recommended, but not required**
Symptoms To Watch For
As with any infectious illness, please stay home or keep your student at home if the following symptoms are present. Testing is recommended for all students and staff experiencing COVID-like symptoms. If symptoms are severe or persist, reach out to a health care provider about the next steps for treatment.
- Feeling feverish, having chills, or a temperature of 100.4°F or higher
- New or unexplained persistent cough
- Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing
- Loss of taste or smell
- Muscle aches
- Sore or scratchy throat
- Nausea or vomiting
- Runny nose or congestion
Remain home until all symptoms improve and free from fever, diarrhea, and vomiting for at least 24 hours without using fever-reducing medication (i.e., Advil or Tylenol). If symptoms persist after three days, even after a negative test, consider re-testing.
If You Test Positive
You do not need a negative test to return to school after a positive test.
If you test positive, we recommend that you stay home for five days, returning to work or school on day six only if all symptoms are improving and you have been free from fever, vomiting, and diarrhea 24 hours without using fever-reducing medication (i.e., Advil or Tylenol). When returning on day six, it is required that you wear a mask from days 6-10*.
Return dates are calculated from the symptom onset date (or test date for asymptomatic cases). This day is counted as day 0 when calculating return dates.
Household and Classroom Exposures
If an exposure occurs in your household or classroom,
- It is recommended to mask through Day 10*.
- Monitor for symptoms.
- Stay home if you are sick.
- It is recommended, not required to test if symptomatic.
- As a courtesy, please report any positive tests to RCS**.
Why Should I Self-Report?**
If you choose to test, please report positive test results to help RCS understand the spread of illness in our effort to keep students and staff safe and in school. Also know some of our families have an individual in the home who is in a compromised state medically. They can be very susceptible to COVID with possible severe, adverse consequences. We are simply wanting to keep all as informed and safe as possible. Lastly, knowing of your child’s situation medically allows RCS to properly record your absence(s).
*Masks will continue to be optional but are still required when returning to school or work after a positive test on days 6-10.
**Please know RCS is still required to follow pre-COVID infectious disease outbreak guidelines, monitoring and reporting.
