Returning to KCSD96 After Travel

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website includes information for those who have traveled or are anticipating travel. The CDC has established risk assessment levels by geographic area for COVID-19 based on ongoing transmission and community transmission of the virus. SEE CURRENT INFO

  • Level 3 – Widespread sustained (ongoing) transmission
  • Level 2 – Sustained (ongoing) community transmission
  • Level 1 – Limited community transmission

Any student returning to the United States from a CDC Level 3 or Level 2 area should not attend school or District-sponsored after-school/evening events for 14 days. Return is permitted after 14 days if no COVID-19 symptoms are experienced.

Any parent or guardian or family member or caregiver returning to the United States from a CDC Level 3 or Level 2 area should not enter the school building or attend school or District-sponsored after-school/evening events for 14 days. Return is permitted after 14 days if no COVID-19 symptoms are experienced.


Resources below include information and FAQs about the coronavirus. Health institutions continue to emphasize handwashing to prevent the spread of the virus. In addition:

District 96 custodians routinely follow a rigorous protocol for cleaning all KCSD96 schools. When circumstances such as those we are experiencing currently warrant–typically in, but not limited to, cold and flu season–they also use a state-of-the-art total surface sanitizing and disinfecting system in classrooms, locker rooms, and public spaces. Their cleaning addresses horizontal surfaces and frequent-touch areas such as door handles and stairway handrails.
