Daily screening checklist

As part of the GIPS Reimagined model, we are asking parents to screen and monitor their students daily before sending them to school. We also thank you for preparing student to wear a face covering all day while at school, except when eating or otherwise instructed to take them off for a break.

Parents should screen their students daily before allowing them to attend school by asking these questions:

  1. Does student have any of the following that are new or cannot be explained:
    • Shortness of breath
    • Cough
    • Chills
    • Muscle pain
    • Headache
    • Sore throat
    • New loss of taste or smell
    • Congestion or runny nose
    • Nausea or vomiting
    • Diarrhea
  2. Has student been around anyone diagnosed with COVID-19, anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 or been directed to self quarantine due to symptoms of COVID-19?
  3. Is temperature over 100 degrees?

If the answer is yes to any of these questions, keep the student home and contact your physician.

Procedures for calling in students due to COVID-19:

  • Always make contact with family doctor and reach out to Central District Health Department.
  • If student has temperature over 100.0, keep student home until fever is gone for three days (72 hours) without the use of fever-reducing medications) and notify the school.
  • If in a COVID-19 situation (household member with symptoms or positive test) notify the principal. Determination will be made for quarantine expectations.
  • If diagnosed with COVID-19, quarantine for 14 days and notify the school.

When in doubt, call your school nurse before coming to school.
