Dear Royal Oak Schools Families,
As we get closer to our opening day for students on September 7, 2021, we would like to share some information from the Oakland County Health Division (OCHD).

Royal Oak Schools is moving forward with face-to-face instruction for all students, DK-12 including TRAILS Adult Transition, and are excited to see everyone back in school. Following the recommendations from the OCHD will allow us to maintain our in-person instruction. 

We will require universal masks when indoor at all of our school buildings by students, staff, and visitors regardless of vaccination status. Masks will be provided to those who need them. Staff and students are encouraged to bring their own clean masks to school daily. 

We will also follow additional OCHD mitigation strategies:

  • Stay home when sick and monitor children for signs of illness every day. Use the attendance system for reporting absences and indicate if it is a COVID-related illness or a possible COVID-related absence.  
    • COVID symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus.
    • Common symptoms are Chills/Fever (100.4 degrees or higher); Muscle or body aches; Congestion or runny nose; New loss of taste or smell; Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing; Cough; Sore throat; Fatigue; Diarrhea (2x in 24 hours) Nausea/vomiting (2x in 24 hours).
    • Symptoms of other common illnesses such as flu, colds, sore throats/infections, etc. should be monitored, and students should remain home. 
  • Maintain physical distancing to the extent possible including at meals. Cohorts will be used when possible. Administrators will share their lunch plans per school. 
  • Use proper handwashing/hygiene using soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds. Hand sanitizer can be used if soap and water are not readily available. 
  • Clean and disinfect hard surfaces. Our custodial and maintenance staff will continue to be diligent in their efforts to keep our schools as clean as possible. 
  • Increase airflow.  Royal Oak has installed the maximum filtration possible in our HVAC systems and is actively installing UVC (ultraviolet light) in our HVAC systems to sterilize the air in our classrooms and large group instructional areas. Read more about the UVC systems by clicking here.  
  • Share information regarding the vaccine for eligible students, staff, and community members. Click here to view Oakland County Health Division information about COVID-19 and other vaccinations available. 

Per the OCHD, “Reporting positive cases and identifying close contacts in school is important to quickly identify those who should isolate and quarantine due to a COVID-19 diagnosis or exposure to COVID-19.”  Royal Oak Schools will: 

  • Maintain isolation rooms within schools should students become ill during the school day until children can be picked up.
  • Report positive cases and close contact with the OCHD, ideally within 24-hours. 
  • Notify close contacts of the exposure.
  • Follow the new guidelines per the CDC regarding quarantining:
    • Required to quarantine: 
      • Close contacts exposed at less than 3-feet of space must quarantine.
      • If 3-6 feet of space has been maintained, and one or both were unmasked, then quarantine is also required. 
    • Exclusions from quarantine: 
      • If 3-6 feet of space has been maintained, and both were properly masked, the parties do not have to quarantine. 
      • People who have tested positive for COVID-19* do not need to quarantine or get tested again for up to 3 months if they remain symptom-free. Those who develop symptoms again within 3 months of their first COVID-19 positive test may need to be tested again if no other cause is identified for their symptoms.
      • Vaccinated persons* are not required to quarantine if they are more than 14 days since receiving the last dose in the series or have remained asymptomatic since the current COVID-19 exposure.
      • *If exposed parties have tested positive in the past or are vaccinated, proof of that status is required to avoid quarantine. If you do not wish to share that documentation, a quarantine period will be enforced.
  • Quarantining period:
    • We will follow the 10-day reduced quarantine strategy. 
    • Stay home for 10 days after exposure while wearing a mask and physically distance yourself from others.
    • Those who quarantine for 10 days must cooperate with the contact tracing efforts while monitoring for symptoms for two weeks after exposure.
    • If symptoms occur, immediately isolate and get a COVID-19 test. 

We will continue to stay up-to-date on any changes from the Oakland County Health Division, CDC, and MDHHS.  Regular meetings with the OCHD staff will resume for the area superintendents this week as their input as health professionals are critical to our school opening. As we have learned over the last 18 months, conditions can change at any time and we appreciate your flexibility and responses to those changes. Families can expect to hear from their own schools’ administrators and teachers as school begins. 

Thank you for your support and cooperation with all of our mitigation efforts. Again, following the guidelines set for schools will increase the likelihood of our being able to maintain the face-to-face learning environment for all.
