Parent/guardian Education: Households will be educated on the signs and symptoms of COVID. Prevent the Spread of Covid-19 symptom information sheet will be sent home along with the DECS Student Daily Screening Tool 9/2/20. Each household is asked to assess their child daily prior to school. Parents/guardians sending students to school are attesting that their student is not experiencing COVID symptoms or have not had close contact to someone experiencing COVID symptoms.
As students enter the classroom, teachers are encouraged to do a visual check and ask a question like “How are you doing today?” or “How are you feeling today?” If a teacher or other staff member notes any signs of illness at any point in the day the student will be asked to go to the health office.
In the health office, health office staff will assess the student and reach out to the parent/guardian as needed. The Minnesota Department of Health Decision Tree will be followed. Decision Tree for People with COVID-19 Symptoms in Youth, Student, and Child Care Programs
