COVID-19 Information

COVID-19 Updates

As of June 2, 2021, the state of Ohio has lifted most health orders. The Upper Arlington Board of Education met on May 28, 2021, to update the district’s mask policy and protocol accordingly.  They approved a resolution making masking recommended but not required as of June 2, 2021. This will be in place for all of our summer programming including Summer Academy, Summer Reading and Summer Bridge. 

The document above, provided by Franklin County Public Health, outlines its guidance for schools regarding COVID-19. 


Symptom checks are a crucial part of keeping our school communities - and our entire community - safe and healthy amid the pandemic. We ask that all students and families conduct self-checks for symptoms before you leave for school each day.

Before having your student enter a school building, please consider these three important self-screening questions. If you answer yes to any of the following questions, please keep your student home and consult with your family physician. 

  1. Has your student had close contact (within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes) with or without a mask in the last 14 days with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, or has any health department or health care provider advised the student to quarantine?
  2. Does your student have any symptoms related to COVID-19? Symptoms include: fever of 100.4ºF or higher, chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore threat, new or worsened nasal congestion, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea.
  3. Has your student been diagnosed with or tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 10 days?
Please contact your school  if your student is experiencing symptoms, receives a positive test or has been exposed to COVID-19.  When reporting any absence, please identify whether the absence is COVID-19 related.
