  1. Designate your child absent in SchoolPass.
  2. Email your Homeroom Teacher/Advisor AND your Division Office (Mary Elizabeth Borden or Michelle Mota) with notification of illness and absence.
  3. Contact Julie Brunson, Director of Health Services, (346-353-8103) before returning to campus

If your child has a COVID-Related issue (i.e. has COVID symptoms, been in close contact with  positive COVID case, or tested positive for COVID)  please keep your child at home and do the following:

  1. Designate your child absent in SchoolPass.
  2. Email Julie Brunson, Director of Health Services, at the onset AND before returning to campus.

What are the Online Learning options while my child is at home recovering from illness, monitoring symptoms or in a quarantine?

  • No school work is required if a child is sick. Children should rest and recover as needed, and missed assignments may be completed upon the child’s recovery and return to school.
  • If a child is required to stay at-home but able to continue learning, he/she should participate in Online Learning. The School will provide instructions for utilizing Online Learning on the second day of a school absence. The child should continue with Online Learning until he/she is eligible to return on-campus.

Presbyterian School's Return-to-Campus Protocols have been updated for the 2021-22 school year. Please review the links below to know what to do and when your child can return to campus in case of a COVID-related issue.
