District 7 Families,
As we prepare to return Pre-K through 8th grade students to in-person learning beginning next week, we want to remind families about the guidelines for when it is necessary to keep your students home from school. District 7 nurses have created a letter for all families that reviews these guidelines.
It is important to understand that District 7 schools will only be able to continue in-person instruction if we are able to keep those that are COVID positive from exposing others. In most situations, if a COVID positive student is a close contact with multiple students in a classroom, the entire classroom will move into a remote setting for the quarantine period. Because of this, it is extremely important that families whose students are attending in-person follow the guidelines listed below.
Please DO NOT send your student to school if:
- Anyone in your household has been tested for COVID-19 and the results are not known yet.
- Anyone in your household has tested positive for COVID-19
- Anyone in your household is experiencing COVID-like symptoms.
- Your student has been identified as a close contact of someone that has tested positive for COVID-19
Following these procedures will greatly increase the odds that we will be able to continue in-person instruction.
Student Health Certification
Parents/guardians must again complete a student self-certification screening before students are allowed to come back to in-person instruction for the second semester. Later today, you will receive an email from email@example.com via SurveyMonkey with the subject line “Screening Survey” that will contain a link to complete the student self-certification. This survey will eliminate the need for a paper form to be turned in this semester. Please note that you will need either your student’s username (used to access Schoology or Clever) or Student ID to complete the survey. The Student ID for all students is available on Tigerview.
Thank you for being diligent as we work to keep our students and staff safe!
