Daily Health Attestations: What Families Need To Know *UPDATED*

UPDATE Thursday, Nov. 12, 2020: We are modifying our health attestation process for students attending in-person learning in our elementary schools to make the process simpler for families and school staff.

  • Parents/guardians will be asked to complete the attestation weekly, with an online form sent to them by their child’s school. This form must be completed and submitted weekly before a student arrives at school each Monday. This attestation will require parents/guardians to affirm that they will keep their child home if they are showing COVID-19-like symptoms at any time during the coming week; if they are testing or test positive for the novel coronavirus or have close contact with someone who is being tested or tested positive.
  • Teachers will take each student’s temperature after they arrive at school each day for in-person learning. Students who have a temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher will be sent to the school’s designated room for students showing COVID-19-like symptoms until a parent or guardian can pick them up.

Any student who arrives at school without a completed attestation will continue to be kept in a designated space in the school while their families are contacted to assist in completing the attestation. Those students will also have their temperatures checked by school staff.

Students found to be ill or reporting exposure to COVID-19 upon arrival at school or becoming ill with COVID-19-like symptoms while at school will be kept in a designated space at the school and their parents contacted to pick them up.
