Screen Students At Home Each Morning
Parents are the first step in reducing the spread of illness at school! Check in with your child each morning for signs of illness. If your child has any of the following symptoms, keep them home.
• 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
• Abdominal pain
• Abnormal taste and/or smell
• New onset of severe headache ( especially with a fever)
• Has had close contact ( within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes) with a person with confirmed COVID-19
• Contact your campus nurse if your child has any of the above symptoms and keep your child home.
Individuals Confirmed or Suspected with COVID-19
Any individuals who themselves either: (a) are lab-confirmed to have COVID-19; or (b) experience the symptoms of COVID-19, must stay at home throughout the infection period of ten days and cannot return to campus until the school nurse screens the individual to determine that ALL conditions below have been met for re-entry.
24 hours have passed without fever or the use of fever reducing medicines
Improvement in respiratory symptoms (cough, shortness of breath)
At least ten days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
In the case of an individual who has symptoms that could be COVID-19 and who is not evaluated by a medical professional or tested for COVID-19, such individual is assumed to have COVID-19, and the individual may not return to the campus until the individual has completed the same three-step set of criteria listed above.
If the individual has symptoms that could be COVID-19 and wants to return to school before completing the above 10 day stay at home period, the individual must either:
Obtain a medical professional’s note clearing the individual for return based on an alternative diagnosis or
Obtain an acute infection test at an approved testing location (https://tdem.texas.gov/covid-19/) that comes back negative for COVID-19.
Your child will not be permitted back on campus until the campus nurse has completed a screening (phone or in person) for re-entry. Please contact your campus nurse for this screening before sending your child back to school.
