Get the Latest COVID-19 Quarantine Guidance & Vaccine Information

Students and adults in K-12 schools may continue to attend in-person school after a classroom/school bus COVID-19 exposure, if the following conditions are met:

  • The school has documented COVID-19 prevention policies, including universal mask wearing, social distancing, hand-washing, identification and management of students exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, and routine environmental cleaning and disinfection protocols.
  • The person with COVID-19 and any associated contacts were wearing face masks that covered their nose and mouth at all times.
    • If exposure occurred during lunch, a distance of at least 6 feet between students must have been maintained

Who Needs to Quarantine?

  • Students who have had a COVID-19 exposure that occurred outside the classroom, including during sports and other extracurricular activities, regardless of masking.
  • People who have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19—excluding people who have had COVID-19 within the past 3 months. 
  • People who have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 3 months and recovered do not have to quarantine or get tested again as long as they do not develop new symptoms. People who develop symptoms again within 3 months of their first bout of COVID-19 may need to be tested again if there is no other cause identified for their symptoms. 
  • At this time, a positive antibody test does not exclude a close contact from quarantine.


  • If a student-athlete has a confirmed case of COVID-19, or has been exposed to someone with COVID-19, they will be allowed to participate in athletics after 10 days; after 7 days, with a negative COVID test on the 5th day after exposure or later; or after the full 14- day period is completed.
  • Student athletes may return to the in-person classroom after 10 days; after 7 days, with a negative COVID test on the 5th day after exposure or later; or after the full 14- day period is completed.

Quarantine Timeline Options

  • Little Miami has a default quarantine period of 10 days, unless a parent has decided to keep their student out for the full 14 days.
  • Students may return to in-person school after 7 days, with a negative COVID-19 test on the 5th day after exposure or later and are not exhibiting symptoms.
  • Quarantining for 14 days is still the “Golden Rule” – and is required in athletics according to OHSAA.

COVID-19 Resources

Please help us have a healthy Second Semester of in-person learning. If there is a COVID-19 pending test result in your immediate family, EVERYONE should stay home from work or school. Inform your child’s school and your employer that your family is in quarantine. Please be sure to send your student to school with a mask & backup in case a replacement is needed. It is essential we all follow these guidelines before sending students to school:

  • Conduct a student wellness check including temperature prior to sending a student to school
  • Students with temperatures over 100°F should stay home
  • Provide a face covering (mask or gaiter) for your student to wear during the school day
  • Provide your student with a water bottle, as water fountains are not be available for use
