School Exclusion Protocols (Rev. 01/17/2022)
The WCSD COVID protocols and information have been compiled in alignment with recommendations from the Lake County General Health District and the Ohio Department of Health. Parents/Guardians should refer to the WCSD School Exclusion Protocols to determine whether or not their child should attend school (these protocols apply to non-school exposures).
Mask to Stay/ Test to Play (applies to grades K-12 only; preschool exposures at school will still result in school exclusion)

COVID-19 Reporting Archive
District wants to be as transparent as possible in reporting information regarding COVID-19 cases while also protecting the identity and medical information of those impacted. Wickliffe City School District staff will notify all parents and guardians within a specific school via email when a positive COVID-19 case in that school is made known to the District. Those individuals determined to have been in contact and potentially exposed to COVID-19 will be contacted by District staff and/or the Lake County General Health District (LCGHD). The LCGHD will be responsible for contract tracing and follow-up with impacted individuals. Understand that the District will not provide information to the general public that would identify students or staff.
