COVID-19 Dashboard and Testing at STEM

COVID-19Seattle Public Schools’ Business Intelligence and Health Services teams partnered to design a public-facing dashboard showing confirmed COVID-19 cases at Seattle Public Schools. The dashboard is refreshed weekly on Mondays. To view information specific to Louisa Boren STEM K-8, click to Page 2 as shown in the image below.

Identifying Close Contacts

Seattle Public Schools has employed contact tracers to email and/or call families whose child is in class with another student who tests positive for COVID-19. Communication and quarantine protocols, as well as definition of a close contact can be found on the Seattle Public Schools’ website under health resources. Students who are fully vaccinated are not required to quarantine after a close contact unless they develop symptoms.

Keep Students Home When Sick

Any student showing signs of illness must be kept home until they receive a negative test and for 24 hours after symptoms have improved. Students can get a COVID-19 test at school. You will need to show a paper or electronic copy of the negative test result to school office staff before your child returns after staying home for an illness. Without a negative test, students can return to school10 days after symptoms first appeared, and if symptoms have improved.

Keep a student home if they have any of the following symptoms (unless they are explained by a pre-existing condition, such as asthma):

  • Fever (100.4 ̊F / 38 ̊C or higher)
  • Cough
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Chills
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Muscle pain or body aches
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea
