School district issues travel-related re-admission directives

By Staff | Mar 13, 2020

The School District of Lee County has received direction from the Florida Department of Education regarding travel. As of 8 a.m. , the directive from the FLDOE includes:

Anyone (students/faculty/staff/etc.) who goes on foreign travel, to any country, must self-isolate for 14 days upon return.

Anyone (students/faculty/staff/etc.) who goes on a cruise, anywhere, must self-isolate for 14 days upon return.

If your child must self-quarantine, contact your child’s school to notify them of the self-quarantine required and provide documentation from the child’s Medical Provider or the Health Department. Once your child’s 14-day self-quarantine has concluded, you must provide a letter from the child’s Medical Provider or the Health Department, stating the student has been cleared to return to school. Parents should work with the schools to maintain academics, classroom work, homework, etc., while the child is at home.

Self-Quarantine Guidelines:

Quarantine means you do not enter any district building or school during your quarantine.

The 14-day quarantine begins the first day your child returns from travel abroad.

Your child must receive clearance from his/her Health Care Provider or the Florida Department of Health in Lee County to return to school.
