Family Pledge

2021-2022 Return to Learn Family Pledge - Updated 8/24/2021

We need your help, support, and encouragement as we plan for success in the upcoming school year! 

To ensure the health, safety, and wellness of our school community and to ensure all students have access to a high-quality education, we ask that you read the following expectations. You are our partners in education and your support of these protocols and expectations will help keep our entire community safe and engaged. We continue to work with local authorities and monitor our community health conditions. Please note, these protocols may change throughout the course of the school year.

I have read and understand the protocols and expectations.

Health Screening and Protocols for Oxford Community Schools

According to OCHD Mask Mandate, masks are required in school buildings and required on school buses per the Federal Order

Encourage your child to make healthy decisions. Remind them to be respectful of others’ personal space and decisions to wear or not wear a mask when it is optional outdoors.

Teach your child(ren) proper hygiene practices and practice often:

  • Washing hands vigorously for at least 20 seconds- maybe sing “Happy Birthday” two times while washing

  • Sneezing and coughing in elbow

Monitor your child(ren)'s health for any of the following:
  • Fever or chills

  • Shortness of breath, rapid or difficulty breathing

  • Persistent cough

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle or body ache

  • Headache

  • New loss of taste or smell

  • Sore throat

  • Congestion

  • Runny nose

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Diarrhea

  • Flushed cheeks

If your child has any of these symptoms, please keep them home until they have been symptom-free for 24 hours without medication. If needed, the district may screen your child for a fever. 

  • Promptly pick your child(ren) up or arrange for pick up from school if signs or symptoms of illness are present.

  • Inform your child(ren)’s school if they test positive for COVID-19. If they test positive, you will be asked to follow Oakland County Health Department guidelines which may include isolation until it is safe to return.

If your child has an ongoing medical condition, please provide their school office with a doctor's note or other records of their health information. We do not want to keep children out of school unnecessarily.
