Daily Self-Health Assessment

As a reminder, we ask that every day before they leave home, families complete a self-health assessment, asking themselves these three vital questions:

 

  1. Has your child had a fever of 100.4 or greater, a new cough, new onset of shortness of breath, new loss of taste or smell in the last 24 hours?
  2. Is your child waiting for a COVID-19 test result due to symptoms or a close contact exposure?
  3. Has anyone in your household been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last 14 days?

 

If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, you will be expected to stay home.
