The 2022-23 TPSD updated COVID protocols require students to quarantine for only five (5) days when they have tested positive. Students will be required to bring a doctor’s note for absences to be excused. Students who are close contacts will not be required to quarantine UNLESS they develop symptoms.
Parents who choose to quarantine their children when they are close contacts without symptoms will have to use parental absences for an excuse. Students are allowed three parental absences per semester.
City officials have teamed with TPSD to provide additional hot spots throughout Tupelo, as shown on the interactive map.
