LTISD Protocols for Screening

***Please remember to screen your children each morning before school.***


If your child has even one of the symptoms on the screening list, they should stay home.

Symptoms are:


★ Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit

★ Loss of taste or smell

★ Cough

★ Difficulty breathing

★ Shortness of breath

★ Headache

★ Chills

★ Sore throat

★ Shaking or exaggerated shivering

★ Muscle or body aches

★ Diarrhea

★ Fatigue

★ Congestion or runny nose

★ Nausea or vomiting


Please know that children who come to school with symptoms will be sent home.

It is important that everyone become familiar with the re-entry protocol

Re-entry protocol applies to students who experience symptoms at home OR if they are sent home from school.


● at least one day (24 hours) has passed since recovery (resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications);

● the individual has improvement in symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath); and

● at least ten days have passed since symptoms first appeared.

The 10 days must be observed even if symptoms only last a short while and the child did not have fever.

If your student wants to return to school before completing the above stay at home period, you must either:

● obtain a medical professional’s note (with date) clearing the student for the return based on an alternative diagnosis; or

● obtain an acute infection test (at a physician’s office, approved testing location found at tdem.texas.govc/covid19/, or another site) that comes back negative for COVID-19.
