Health and Safety for Lakeville Area Schools Community Education Programs

    • As we enter the winter season often accompanied with illness, please follow these Minnesota Department of Health guidelines for managing illnesses such as influenza, respiratory viruses, and COVID:

      Practice good hand hygiene, and cover coughs and sneezes to limit the spread of illness.

      Please keep your student(s) home if they are sick. Students can return to school when:

      • Their illness has subsided or their symptoms have improved.

      • They have been fever-free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication.

      • After resuming normal activities, the CDC encouraged taking additional prevention strategies for the next 5 days to curb disease spread, such as taking more steps for cleaner air, enhancing hygiene practices, wearing a well-fitting mask, keeping a distance from others, and/or getting tested for respiratory viruses.
