Totino-Grace

Quarantine Guidelines

Per the new MDH close contact guidelines, Totino-Grace students who have one close contact experience may be considered for an earlier return date to school if they meet certain criteria. 

To request an early return to in-person learning and activity participation, please complete the form sent by email following communication of confirmed case exposure and provide any necessary supporting documentation. If you selected a 7-day quarantine, documentation of a PCR COVID-19 neagtive test for your TG student should be sent by email to C-19@totinograce.org.

Please expect a call from Totino-Grace's COVID-19 Response Team prior to your student's designated return date. Students/staff may not return to campus until this phone call has taken place.

For ALL early returns, students and household members must be symptom free and have had only one close contact exposure during the quarantine time frame.

If the student or a household member tests positive for COVID-19 at any time during the quarantine time frame, you DO NOT qualify for early return and MUST quarantine for the full 14 days.

If during contact tracing, the TG COVID-19 Response team (supported by MDH) determines your contact was a more significant exposure, you may not qualify for early return and need to quarantine for the full 14 days.

If you have questions or need assistance, please call the school at 763-571-9116.
