Reminder of COVID-19 Policies

DP Logo

Dear Deer Park Families, 

As we continue our efforts to monitor cases of COVID-19 within our district, we would like to remind parents of our policies regarding COVID-related absences and returning to school. 

If your child is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 please notify your school nurse. Symptoms of COVID-19 include:

Category 1 Symptoms

Category 2 Symptoms

Cough Chills
Shortness of breath Rigors (chills with shaking)
Difficulty breathing Myalgia (body aches)
Fever greater than 100 degrees F Headache
  Sore Throat
  Nausea &/or Vomiting
  Nasal Congestion/ Runny Nose
  New loss of smell or taste


In accordance with guidelines set by Hamilton County Public Health Department, a student who is experiencing one or more Category 1 symptoms or any combination of two or more Category 2 symptoms is required to self-isolate for 10 days unless the student is evaluated by a physician and it is determined that their illness is not COVID-19 related and may return to school.

A negative COVID-19 test alone will not be accepted for your child to return to school. In order for a student to return to school, the Return To School Form must be completed by your child’s physician.

Please be prepared to take this form with you to your child’s appointment and to have it completed by his/her/their physician. Completed forms must be turned into the school nurse prior to your student’s return to school.

Forms may be emailed to or faxed to the Jr./Sr. High School (513-891-3845) or Amity Elementary (513-891-3508).

Please contact your school’s nurse if you have any questions or concerns.


Dr. Orso
Assistant Superintendent
