COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols

Update: Aug. 25, 2023
Meridian School follows guidelines from the Williamson County and Cities Health District (WCCHD). 
Wearing masks is up to your preference. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask and follow quarantine/isolation guidelines.
See isolations and precautions for people with COVID-19 from the CDC.
What do I do if my student tests positive for COVID-19?
  • If your student will be absent, report the absence via email.
  • As with any absence, parents and guardians may contact their student’s teachers to pick up homework for their student.
  • Please email our Health Team at [email protected] to report a positive test.

Students and staff members who have tested positive for COVID-19 may return to school once these measures have been met:

  • At least five days have passed since the symptoms began and
  • They are 24 hours fever-free (temp of 100𐩑 F or higher) without using fever-reducing medication; and
  • Improved symptoms (cough, difficulty breathing, etc.)
The CDC recommends wearing a mask for ten days after a positive test.
