Download the COVID-19 Daily Screening Tool for Staff and Students 2021 (PDF)
HPS has created a tool to be used by staff and students each morning to identify signs and symptoms that may be related to COVID-19. These symptom guidelines incorporate recommendations from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In considering symptoms, exposure, and travel, this tool provides guidance as to when in-person learners and staff should stay home and when they should go to school. It also provides a guideline for remote learners in terms of when they should contact their school nurse with symptoms or COVID-19 positive results.
