COVID-19 Student Health Screener

The best school day starts with healthy students and this begins at home. Each morning before school, please complete the following screening. These symptoms indicate a possible illness that may decrease the student’s ability to learn and put them at risk for spreading illness to others.

Symptoms
☐ Temperature 100.4 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, or abdominal pain
☐ New onset of severe headache, especially with a fever
☐ Loss of taste and/or smell
Close Contact/Potential Exposure
In the past 14 days has your child:
☐ Had close contact (within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes) with a person with confirmed COVID-19: OR
☐ Had close contact (within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes) with a person under quarantine for possible exposure to COVID-19; OR
☐ Had a travel history

If the answer is YES to any of the symptom questions, keep your child(ren) home from school.
If the answer is YES to any symptoms question and YES to any close contact/potential exposure question, call the school as soon as possible to let them know the reason your child(ren) won’t be there today. Call your healthcare provider right away. If you don’t have one or cannot be seen, go to www.mi.gov/coronavirustest or call 2-1-1 to find a location to have your child(ren) tested for COVID-19.

If the answer is YES to any of the symptom questions, but NO to any close contact/potential exposure questions, your student may return based on the guidance for their symptoms:

• Sore throat: improvement (if strep throat: do not return until antibiotic has been taken for at least 24 hours)
• Cough/Shortness of breath: improvement
• Diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain: no diarrhea or vomiting for 24 hours
• Severe headache: improvement
• Fever: at least 24 hours have passed with no fever, without the use of fever-reducing medications

For all illnesses, it is very important that students stay home when sick until at least 24 hours after they no longer have a fever without the use of fever-reducing medicine (Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.). If your child(ren) are found to have a fever and/or symptom consistent with COVID-19, a caregiver will need to quickly come to the school to pick up the ill student.
