Daily Self-Check of Student Reminder 

As members of the school community, we all share the responsibility to avoid coming to school with symptoms of COVID-19. I just wanted to remind families of the daily expectation of self-checking for symptoms for all students and staff.

SELF Certification / Reporting 

The single most important thing to do if any of the following symptoms are present is to STAY HOME. Our collective health relies, in part, on individual attention and responsibility. Note that some symptoms of COVED-19 are the same as the flu or a bad cold; please do not assume it is another condition. When in doubt, stay home. Any person who anticipates being in a school building or on school grounds for a period of 15 min or more must self-certify that they do not have any of the following symptoms: 

  •       Fever (100.0 degrees Fahrenheit or higher), chills or shaking chills  
  •       Cough (not due to other known cause, such as chronic cough or asthma) 
  •       Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath 
  •       New loss of taste or smell  
  •       Sore throat 
  •       Headache, when in combination with other symptoms 
  •       Muscle aches or body aches 
  •       Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea 
  •       Fatigue, when in combination with other symptoms 
  •       Nasal Congestion or runny nose (not due to other known causes, such as allergies), when in combination with other symptoms 
  •       Or have not had the following within the last 14 days: 
  •       Have not had "close contact" with an individual diagnosed with COVID•19 or has shown symptoms as described above. 
  •       "Close contact" means: 
  •       Living in the same household as a person who has tested positive for COVID-19' 
  •       Caring for a person who has tested positive for COVID-19; 
  •       Being within 6 feet of a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 for 15 minutes, or coming in direct contact with secretions (e.g., sharing utensils,                    being  coughed on) from a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, while that person was symptomatic. 
  •       Have not been asked to self-isolate or quarantine by their doctor or a local public health official.
