COVID Protocols Flow Chart

COVID Close Contact Decision Tree

State Mask Mandate

DESE and  EEC are requiring all people aged 5 and older to wear masks when inside school buildings. People under the age of 5 are strongly encouraged, but not required, to wear masks. No one is required to wear masks when outside of a school building. This is the  WPS School Committee Policy that complies with the state mandate.

 

COVID-19 Testing Options in School

The district is offering two types of free  diagnostic in-school COVID-19 testing to students and staff members this school year. WPS is not participating in the COVID-19 Routine Pooled Testing. WPS is offering the following types of tests.

  • Test and Stay: Close contacts who do not have COVID-19 symptoms may avoid the quarantine period by taking daily rapid tests for seven days.

  • Symptomatic Testing: A person with COVID-19 symptoms may take a rapid test before they go home to see if they have COVID-19.

 

Providing Consent for COVID-19 Testing

Participation in the testing program is voluntary for students and staff members. Students must have consent from a parent or guardian to participate in the testing programs.   Please click on this link if you wish to consent to your child being tested for COVID-19 through either Test and Stay or Symptomatic Testing. Click on Consent Now, select Wrentham, and then select either Delaney or Roderick and complete the form. We will not administer a COVID-19 test without a completed consent form. We will contact the parent or guardian of a student prior to administering a COVID-19 test even if we have consent. Please refer to the  WPS Return to School Plan to learn more about COVID-19 symptoms, close contact definition, and testing/quarantine requirements.
