COVID-19 Protocols and Resources

Published June 25, 2020. Updated August 14, 2023.

For the 2023-24 school year, we continue to ask that families and faculty/staff follow CDC guidance regarding positive COVID tests: stay home and isolate for five (5) days from onset of symptoms or positive test, return on day six (6) if symptoms are resolving (and fever free for 24 hours), and then mask indoors for five (5) days more. As with all contagious illnesses, we ask that you notify the School if your child has COVID by letting the Front Office know when you call or email to report your child absent. However, families do not need to fill out a reporting form, and we will not be tracking cases or notifying families regarding positive cases.

High school student-athletes are subject to the KHSAA’s Return-to-Play protocol; families with a student in-season on a Wyvern athletic team should contact Mike Kelley, Athletic Director, regarding the timing and forms related to this protocol.  

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been thrilled with the high vaccination rates of our faculty, staff, and students. COVID-19 vaccines continue to be readily available and are FDA-approved and CDC-recommended for ages six months and older. is an easy way to find and schedule a vaccine appointment for your child if they have not yet been vaccinated or are in need of a booster.

Please reach out with any questions you may have about updated protocols or policies. The health and safety of our community continues to be a top priority, and as we did throughout the pandemic, we will continue to monitor and implement best practices in this regard, according to government and medical experts.

Protocols outlined on this page are subject to change based on most current guidelines and mandates issued by the Governor and public health officials.
