NEW Self- Certification Procedures for ALL Hybrid Students

All students must complete the self certification form located in Skyward Family Access prior to arriving on January 25, 2021. We are requiring this of ALL FAMILIES with children who are hybrid/in-person. Instructions on how to do so can be found here.

NOTE: This self certification form is different from the daily “wellness screening” you have been completing. When entering Skyward, please make sure you are completing the form titled “COVID-19 Self-Certify - Jan 25.”

All students who complete the self certification will be provided a District 44 backpack tag, which signifies to us that our families continue to honor our DAILY requirement that only children who are symptom-free are on campus.

Students will be provided this backpack tag only after we have checked that their self certification was completed. Any family who has not completed this will be immediately contacted by the child’s school and not be allowed to return until complete.
