Daily Health Screening

Dear Parent/Guardian: 


Prior to coming to school in the morning, it is necessary that you conduct a daily health screening of your child(ren). Any child with a fever of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or greater and/or symptoms of possible COVID-19 virus infection should not be present in school. The following are listed as the most common symptoms of COVID-19: 

  • Fever/chills (100 degrees or greater);

  • Cough;

  • Shortness of Breath or difficulty breathing;

  • Fatigue;

  • Muscle or body aches;

  • Headache;

  • New loss of taste or smell;

  • Sore throat;

  • Congestion or runny nose;

  • Nausea or vomiting and/or;

  • Diarrhea


We encourage you to complete this screening using the ParentSquare app for your convenience.  This indicates that you will be completing a daily temperature check and health care questionnaire daily at home prior to your child coming to school.  If you are unable to commit to daily temperature checks and health screenings, the school will conduct one for you each morning prior to your child attending class. 


If the child is exhibiting signs or symptoms the school will contact the parent/guardian to come pick up the ill child.  


In addition to the health screening, if you answer β€œYes” to any of the following questions your child should not be present in school. 

  • Has your child(ren) been in close or proximate contact in the past 14 days with anyone who has tested positive through a diagnostic for COVID-19 or who has or had symptoms of COVID-19?

  • Has your child(ren) has tested positive through a diagnostic test for COVID-19  in the past 14 days?

  • Has your child(ren) experience any symptoms of COVID-19 in the past 14 days; and/or

  • Has your child(ren) traveled internationally or from a state with widespread community transmission of COVID-19 per the New York State Travel Advisory in the past 14 days? 


Please contact the main office of your child(ren)'s school via phone ASAP, if your child is unable to come to school.
