My school’s current policy is that if someone’s immediate family members have covid they need to quarantine but no one quarantines when exposed by classmates, even when it’s two kids who share a pod/ table.
What’s your school doing? How is it immoral not to quarantine when it’s a family member but ok when the school allows it?

are the kids all masked at school? That's the only reason I could see not to quarantine classmates. Where I was last year they only quarantined kids who sat within 6 feet if the kids wore masks. Current school quarantines the whole class

My school picks and choose who needs to quarantine for example anyone who sits next to . Or if you feel your kid should based on who’s positive. And then that class needs to come in masks for a week or something like that. My school picked my kid to be home based on something and bec she’s not vaxed but really it was her bff anyway. When we went to test her out and she was positive so the school must have been happy with there choice. it did not spread so much around the grade but a lot were vaccinated .

My kids' high school closed the whole school when 2 9th graders tested positive.

Our elementary school requires quarantine for siblings, but not for classmates.

If I understood your question, you are asking why do you have to quarentine when a family member has covid but not when a classmate? Spread within a fam is more likely than in a classroom setting so that's prob your answer.

Considering right now there are 8 kids in her grade who have it, I am more than frustrated that they aren’t being more cautious.

I’m not sure where you are but in NYS classmates who aren’t distanced are contacts and require self monitoring regardless of vaccination status and quarantining if not fully vaccinated. If your school isn’t doing that and are in NYS, they aren’t following the rules.

Our OOT community has two day schools and is following state mask mandates and enforcing isolations.

Yeah, in my school that's an outbreak that shuts down the whole grade...
If two grades get shut down, they put the whole school on zoom for the week. We've hit that point exactly once this year and haven't had a single case since then

My son tested positive in cheder and I was told if he has no symptoms he can come. So I guess that answers your question.
Tbh tho I don’t trust those tests much. The kids do it on themselves it’s all a moneymaking scheme.

We live in Cleveland . The state has recommendations but no mandates. Some people have literally switched to the Mixrachi school over this, I don’t want to and my kids would never fit in but I am so uncomfortable with the way the right wing school is letting it spread and not taking precautions.

Hatzlochah. I know how you feel. I have not frum family in Cleveland and well, cleveland has both kinds of camps so to speak in and outside of the frum communities.

I’m in NYS and I switched shuls and social circles over this though not schools because yeah, it’s complicated.
