Clarkston School District Requiring Students to Quarantine After Possible School Bus Exposure

Clarkston School District

CLARKSTON - Sunday, January 9, The Clarkston School District informed families of a potential COVID spread on with students on bus Routes 10, and 13 and due to staffing Route 20 will not have a driver. 

They learned this afternoon that students on Routes 10 and 13 were potentially exposed last week to COVID-19 and are considered close contacts. The School District informed families their students cannot attend school Monday, January 10, and need to quarantine. If the student is not showing symptoms, they can return to school on January 18.

Students must quarantine for 5-full days. The district will test students on day 5 (January 12). Students who test negative and are symptom-free may return to school on January 13. Students who do not test on January 12 may return to school on January 18. More details regarding the January 12 testing will be shared soon.

Students ages 5-17 who are fully vaccinated do not need to quarantine (the last dose must have been administered more than 14 days ago). Students 18 and older who have received their primary vaccine and the booster do not need to quarantine. Students 18 and older who have received their primary vaccines and are not yet eligible for the booster do not need to quarantine. In all cases, students who are vaccinated must also be symptom-free in order to not quarantine. Parents will need to provide their child’s school with documentation of the vaccination status.

Students who have a laboratory-confirmed or school-administered diagnosis of Covid in the last 90 days do not need to quarantine. Parents will need to provide the school with documentation of the laboratory-confirmed positive Covid diagnosis in the last 90 days.

Due to the shortage of bus drivers, Route 20 will not have busing services next week, so families will need to make other arrangements for transportation. All other bus routes will continue as regularly scheduled. We understand the inconvenience. Please check back daily for any updates.

If you have questions about your individual child’s situation or any further questions, please call the Clarkston School District Educator Support Center at 509-758-2531.
