NEW COVID-19 Reporting Procedures

The COVID-19 Self-Reporting Form, found on the hseschools.org, has been updated!

· The online form now allows you to provide the information nurses need to calculate a timeline of return for your student after a COVID situation arises.

· Once the COVID-19 Self-Reporting Form is completed, you will receive an email with the date of return for your student along with helpful information about their return to school.

· If you use the form, you do not need to call or email the nurse, building and/or teacher to inform them, your online submission will take care of that.

· If additional information is needed, the school nurse may reach out to you.

We believe using this new COVID-19 Self-Reporting Form will assist our school nurses and buildings in communication efficiency, and will save you time as well.

Thank you!
