Daily Health Screening
Safety protocols have been established to minimize health risks to students and school staff.   Daily health screening of students by parents will be necessary.  Before entering school buildings, families will be asked to submit an electronic daily health screen form  prior to their child’s arrival to school each day.  Health screening questions will ask if a student has COVID-19 symptoms, been in close contact with anyone confirmed with COVID-19, tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 10 days, and been given advice from a medical professional to self-monitor, self-isolate, or self-quarantine.  

Many symptoms of COVID-19 are also present in common illnesses like strep throat, the common cold, asthma, and seasonal allergies. These symptoms may cause parents to pause when answering questions on the electronic daily health screen form for students. If you have questions, please contact the Health Room at your child’s school. Health room staff can provide additional assistance and information specific to your child’s needs.
