If it has been determined your child was in close contact with an individual who tested positive for COVID-19, you will be notified by email, and your child must quarantine for 14 days from the date of the last close contact with the individual before returning to school. The notification email will include start and end dates for the quarantine and more details regarding who to contact for questions about distance learning and pausing participation in athletics and extracurricular activities.
Contact tracing is performed according to guidance from the Tulsa Health Department using methods appropriate for the age level of the positive student. Bishop Kelley has a team of trained contact tracers who utilize questioning of adults and students, seating charts, and any other relevant information.
During the 14-day quarantine period, the Tulsa Health Department and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) suggest your child should remain at home as much as possible. Your child should refrain from having contact with friends or attending any social gatherings.
