Daily Health Check
Each morning parents and/or guardians of Marion Cross School students are required to ask the following health check questions at home:
1. Have you been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
2. Do you show any symptoms consistent with COVID-19? (cough, fever of 100.4℉ or higher, shortness of breath, chills, fatigue, muscle pain or body aches, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, congestion or runny nose, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea)
If the answer is yes to either question, the student should not come to school. Please contact the classroom teacher, the office, and the nurse.
- Students with a confirmed diagnosis and a medical treatment plan for well-controlled asthma or environmental allergies, who do not have a temperature, may attend school with some expected mild coughing and clear nasal discharge.
- It is helpful to get in the habit of having children wash their hands before putting on their masks. Parents should also ensure that the mask fits properly (snug on sides, covering nose and mouth, and secure under chin).
The following procedures will be in place for morning arrival:
- All students, staff, and bus drivers are required to wear an approved facial mask. There will be opportunities for mask breaks when physical distancing measures are in place.
- Hand sanitizing stations will be located at every entrance point to ensure staff and students can properly sanitize hands upon entry.
- Staggered arrival and drop off times/locations will be assigned to families based on the first letter of their last name.
- Students should go directly to their assigned classroom once they have completed all required screening.
- All staff are needed during morning arrival and may not be available to speak with individual parents/caregivers. If needed, arrangements should be made in advance with the staff member.
- All students and staff must have their temperature taken at the first point of contact. A bus monitor (for those students riding the bus) or a school monitor (for those with private transport, walking, or biking) will check the temperature of each child prior to entering the bus or school grounds. Any student with a temperature of 100.4℉ or higher will be excluded from entering the school/bus. A parent or caregiver should follow up with a health care provider for any student that is excluded from school.
