What We Can Do

COVID-19, and its variants, is a virus that can be spread by everyone at all ages, even without being ill or manifesting any known symptoms. As such, and as we strive to continue to provide continuity in the education of our students, we encourage everyone to consistently continue to observe the following precautions, even with feeling great, to help reduce the spread of COVID-19:

  • Stay home if you are sick, even with mild symptoms (see below)

  • NEW!! If your Great Northern student lives in the same household as a Covid-postive infected individual OR in a household with a sibling showing signs of sickness, your student MUST stay home, possibly up to 20 days. Please refer to the charts below. Consult your healthcare provider, Spokane Regional Health District, and notify the school. (10/4/2021)

  • Wear a cloth face covering when around others
