GOAL: Limiting the Potential for Spreading COVID-19
Self screening at home is the first line of defense in limiting the spread of COVID-19. Parents/guardians sending students to school are attesting that their student is not experiencing COVID symptoms, has not had a positive COVID test, has not been informed of being a close contact to a positive COVID case and is not waiting for COVID test results.
All staff, students and families should “Self Monitor” every day before they leave home. The monitoring includes checking in with yourself, “How do you feel today?”. If you are not feeling well or your child is not acting like themselves and you have no explanation for it then please stay home and monitor symptoms for the day. If you feel better and any mild symptoms completely resolve returning to school the next day is fine. Check with your healthcare provider if experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 prior to returning to school.
Self monitoring also includes looking at the COVID-19 symptoms list and answering ‘no’ to the symptoms. The CDC has a Student Checklist that can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/community/schools-childcare/Daily-Home-Screening-for-Students-Checklist-ACTIVE-rev5A.pdf
Our electronic records provider is working on an electronic screening that we may use in the future. MDH is also creating a symptom checklist just for schools. We will share those once they are available.
Out of an abundance of caution, and wanting to limit the risk of having to quarantine, we ask that you stay home if not feeling well, whether COVID related or not.
