  • SYMPTOM OF ILLNESS

    Please contact nurse@heritagehall.com to report a positive COVID-19 test or exposure. 

    In all instances of illness with a fever of 100.0F or higher, vomiting, diarrhea, coughing that is intrusive to everyday activities, body aches, or headache in combination with any of the previously mentioned symptoms, individuals should remain at home (except to receive medical care as needed) until symptoms have resolved for a minimum of 24 hours. Individuals with a temperature of 99.0F in combination with other symptoms should be monitored at home until symptoms improve. Students who are feeling unwell and are unable to participate in classes and school activities should remain at home until they are feeling better and seek medical evaluation as appropriate. Nurse approval for return to school from a non-Covid illness is not required; please use your judgment as we did with any communicable illnesses prior to Covid.

    Please refer to the Parent-Student Handbook for additional information or contact one of the school nurses with any health-related questions.
  • FLU

    The flu is the most contagious for 3-4 days after the onset of symptoms. Individuals who are diagnosed with the flu should remain at home for a minimum of 3 days following the onset of symptoms and may return when they have been fever-free without the use of fever-reducing medications for a minimum of 24 hours and symptoms have significantly improved.
  • WHAT TO DO FOLLOWING A POSITIVE COVID-19 TEST

    Individuals who test positive must remain at home for 5 days from the onset of symptoms (or positive test, if asymptomatic) and notify the school nurse at nurse@heritagehall.com.  If symptoms are resolved by the 5th day and the individual has been fever-free (without the use of fever-reducing medications such as Tylenol, Motrin, or Aspirin) for at least 24 hours, they may return to campus after being cleared by a school nurse. 

    After 5 days, those who are still experiencing fever or otherwise feeling unwell should continue to stay home until they have been fever-free (without the use of fever-reducing medications) and symptoms have resolved. Wearing a KN95 or surgical mask for the remainder of 10 days from the initial onset of symptoms or positive test is recommended. Either of these can be purchased in most drugstores, or KN95 masks are available in each division.
  • WHAT TO DO FOLLOWING AN EXPOSURE TO COVID-19

    Vaccinated and Previously Infected Individuals
    • Asymptomatic: no restrictions, monitor closely for symptoms
      • If symptoms develop, begin following the guidance for symptomatic below
      • Wearing a well-fitting mask is recommended. KN95 masks are available in each division.
    • Symptomatic: remain home (except to seek medical care and COVID-19 testing), notify nurse@heritagehall.com 
      • Return to school when cleared by a school nurse, fever-free, and symptoms have resolved
    Unvaccinated Individuals 
    1. Notify nurse@heritagehall.com if you get tested.
    2. Quarantine x 5 days; monitor for symptoms
      1. If no symptoms by day 5, contact nurse@heritagehall.com for clearance to return to campus. Do not return to campus until cleared. Wear a KN95 or surgical mask for the remainder of 10 days. Either of these can be purchased in most drugstores, or KN95 masks are available in each division.
    3. If symptoms develop, contact the nurse to establish a plan to return.
  • TEST PENDING FOR SOMEONE IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD

    Unvaccinated individuals must remain off-campus and contact nurse@heritagehall.com when they have, or someone in their household has, a COVID-19 test pending.
  • ACADEMIC PLAN (COVID INFECTION OR QUARANTINE)

    The school nurse will communicate with the appropriate division-specific staff when a student is required to remain off campus due to a COVID-19 infection or quarantine and when they are cleared to return. The academic advisor or teacher will provide academic expectations and resources. 
    • Parents of students in K - 5 will be notified when academic materials are ready to be picked up.
    • Students in grades 6-12 should also email their teachers for academic support. 
  • ON-CAMPUS LEARNING

    Students learn best when they participate in a dynamic interactive classroom environment. Classes engage in deeper learning when students are present and social-emotional learning is also enhanced when our community is here and interactive. For this reason, Heritage Hall will not offer a live, virtual learning option as long as the campus is open. Our policy regarding virtual learning and synchronous Zoom classes is stated to give teachers flexibility that does not impact the in-class experience. In the unlikely event that we have to transition to virtual learning for everyone, our protocols will be modified and shared with the community.
Heritage Hall is a co-educational college preparatory school in Oklahoma City. As one of the few secular private schools in the state, we offer a challenging academic curriculum for students from preschool through grade 12, as well as unique leadership opportunities, a wide spectrum of athletics, and a well developed fine arts program.
