Idabel Public Schools would like to thank our community for remaining vigilant in reducing the spread in our schools. At this moment there are no isolations or quarantines based on “close contact” in our school buildings. Please remember if your child is showing symptoms or is sick, they should stay home. Contact your building secretary and communicate when your student needs to stay at home. The health and safety of our students and staff is our priority.

REMINDER: CDC-Close Contact Definition: For COVID-19, a close contact is anyone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes. An infected person can spread COVID-19 starting 48 hours (or 2 days) before the person had any symptoms or tested positive for COVID-19.
