Health Practices for In-Person School

Here are the health practices we’re expecting of families as students return to school:

  • Conduct daily symptom checks at home each morning using Home Screening Tool

  • Keep your child home if they or anyone in your household has symptoms of COVID-19.

  • Report the following to your child’s school health office or building COVID coordinator:

    • Any illnesses

    • COVID-19 close contact exposures or illnesses

    • Positive COVID cases within the home.

  • Be sure your child brings a filled water bottle to school each day.

  • Pack an extra mask in your student’s backpack. A ziplock bag labeled “clean” and “used” are great places to store them.

  • Please check the phone numbers for parents and emergency contacts in ParentVue so that we are able to contact you promptly in case of injury or illness.

Please remember that the health practices in place prior to our shift to distance learning are still important to help us create a school environment that’s as healthy and safe as possible. This is also a great time to review the Minnesota Department of Health’s Attendance Guide for Families.
