Check your Symptoms!

As a reminder, we wanted to share that each morning families should symptom-check their children at home prior to leaving for school to identify signs and symptoms that may be related to COVID-19. To serve as a guide for symptom-checking, the nursing team has developed a Daily Screening Tool for use each morning to identify signs and symptoms that may be related to COVID-19.   Learn about the Daily COVID-19 Screening Tool and download it today (PDF) and remain home if you have symptoms.

Register Your Student for Free COVID-19 Pooled Testing Program

We are excited to share that in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, HPS is offering a free COVID-19 pooled testing program for students and staff at our schools.   By working together to test every student and staff member who opt into the program each week, we will keep our entire school community safer.  Learn more.
