Health Screening Information

Health Screening Information for Parents and Guardians

 

PARENTS/GUARDIANS:  Before sending your child(ren) to school each day, YOU are responsible for screening them for COVID-19 symptoms. When each child reports to school, YOU are acknowledging that you have taken his/her temperature, and they are not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, meaning symptoms that are not normal for them.

If symptoms are present, the parent/guardian should contact the campus nurse for further guidance on if, or when, the child(ren) should report to school.

COVID-19 Symptoms include:

  • Temperature of 100 or greater
  • Chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Muscle aches
  • Headache
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of taste or smell

While on campus, any student who experiences symptoms will immediately report to the school clinic. If the temperature is 100 degrees or greater, a second temperature will be taken to verify the first reading. If the second reading reflects a temperature of 100 degrees or greater, the student will be sent home immediately.
