Parents: Please complete this short check each morning before your child leaves for school.
SECTION 1: Symptoms If your child has any of the following symptoms, that indicates a possible illness that may decrease the student’s ability to learn and also put them at risk for spreading illness to others. If any of these apply to your child, they need to stay home.
Please take your child’s temperature and check your child for these symptoms:
- Temperature 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher when taken by mouth
- Sore throat
- New uncontrolled cough that causes difficulty breathing (for students with chronic allergic/asthmatic cough, a change in their cough from baseline)
- Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain
- New onset of severe headache, especially with a fever
SECTION 2: Close Contact/Potential Exposure
- Notification by the Health Department or your doctor for a member of your household to quarantine
- Close contact (within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes) with a person with confirmed COVID-19
- Traveled to an area where the local or state health department is reporting large numbers of COVID-19 cases
- Traveled to a state on the travel advisory quarantine list
If you or your child is sick with COVID-19, or think you might have COVID-19, stay home except to get medical care.
● Stay home. Most people with COVID-19 have mild illness and can recover at home without medical care. Do not leave your home, except to get medical care. Do not visit public areas.
● Take care of yourself/your child. Get rest and stay hydrated. Take over-the-counter medicines, such as acetaminophen, to help you feel better.
● Stay in touch with your doctor. Call before you get medical care. Be sure to get care if you have trouble breathing, or have any other emergency warning signs, or if you think it is an emergency.
● Avoid public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.
