COVID-19 Health Information

This page will be updated with the most recent guidance and information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and practices in our schools. 

COVID-19 Health Self-Screener

SELF-SCREENER imageAll Fond du Lac School District students and staff must complete the self-screening questions each morning prior to boarding a bus and/or reporting to school. Here is a link to our COVID-19 Health Self-Screener in English and Spanish.

Masks / Face Coverings

The Board of Education approved changes to our masking guidelines on February 14, 2022.
There has been a steady decline in COVID-19 cases among our students and staff, and the majority of school-aged children have had the opportunity to be fully vaccinated. Therefore, beginning, February 15, 2022, our District will end the current masking guidelines. This means that wearing a mask is optional within our school buildings, except for when students or staff return from a COVID-19 isolation where they will have to wear a mask from day 6 through 10. View our complete isolation and quarantine guidelines below.

With masking being optional, it is the responsibility of staff to remain neutral in regard to masking and value the individual’s choice.

As of March 1, 2022, masks are now optional on Fond du Lac School District buses and vans. This change aligns with the CDC's new guidelines for schools. Please note that those who ride Fond du Lac Area Transit buses (City of Fond du Lac buses) and use Advocap/Head Start transportation will need to follow the mask guidelines in place with those services.

Isolation/Quarantine and Contact Tracing

At their January 24, 2022 meeting, the Board of Education adopted new guidelines for COVID-19 isolation and quarantines. The purpose of these updates is to both incorporate the CDC’s new guidelines and reduce quarantines for close contacts. These changes will reduce the amount of school students are missing due to quarantines and should help provide more stability to the lives of the families we serve.


Unvaccinated/Vaccinated Person
Positive Case IsolationIsolate positive cases for 5 days from the start of symptoms. Can return to school on day 6 if fever free and symptoms manageable, but must wear a mask through day 10. If a student cannot mask from 6-10, they need to continue their isolation. **Day of onset is day 0. In the situation of a positive result in an asymptomatic person, the day the COVID test was conducted will serve as day 0.
Symptomatic PersonIf symptomatic, the individual can either isolate for 5 days and return on day 6 if fever free and symptoms manageable, but must wear a mask through day 10. Or choose to be tested (PCR). If the test is negative, they can return to school.
**Day of onset is day 0. In the situation of a positive result in an asymptomatic person, the day the COVID test was conducted will serve as day 0.
Close Contact/Asymptomatic PersonIf asymptomatic, the individual goes to school and monitors symptoms. If symptoms begin, please see above for symptomatic person.
Contact Tracing - School ExposureContact tracing will cease for all students.
