Together, We Can Stop the Spread of COVID-19 With Our Self-Screen Tool!
As your district’s healthcare partner, we are providing a COVID-19 Self-Screening Tool for your staff. This technology is valued at a $100,000 investment, but as partners in preventing the spread of COVID-19 together, there is no cost to the district, families/students, or staff to use this tool.
Teachers and staff are required to self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms before coming onto campus each day and may consider screening students for COVID-19 as well.
The Benefits of the COVID-19 Self-Screening Tool
Teachers and staff are REQUIRED to pre-screen themselves in the morning before heading to school, and districts may consider screening students (OPTIONAL) as well!
Through our self-screening tool, families and staff will be notified if they should stay home based on their symptoms/activity.
This tool will help keep an accurate count for those students and staff with COVID-19 related symptoms. This tool will also help identify other students and staff who may have been exposed to a student with symptoms.
Complete in Under a Minute
Filling out the COVID-19 self-screening questionnaire only takes less than a minute to complete to help ensure that the students and staff attending school are healthy.
Real Time District Data
When your families and staff complete the self-screening tool, the data is securely provided to you in your districts HIPAA compliant Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) to enable you as district leaders to make decisions about school operations effectively and efficiently to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
At-Home Telemedicine Visits
Students and staff with symptoms/activity related to COVID-19 will be emailed an automated message requiring them to stay home, as well as a direct link to sign up for the SchoolMed program (if they aren’t already registered) and to virtually speak to one of our board-certified pediatric providers.
Here’s What the TEA “Practices to Prevent the Virus from Entering the School” Guidance Says:
“School systems must require teachers and staff to self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms before coming onto campus each day and may consider screening students for COVID-19 as well.The self-screening should include teachers and staff taking their own temperature.
Teachers and staff must report to the school system if they themselves have COVID-19 symptoms or are labconfirmed with COVID-19, and, if so, they must remain off campus until they meet the criteria for re-entry as noted below. Additionally, they must report to the school system if they have had close contact with an individual who is lab-confirmed with COVID-19, as defined at the end of this document, and, if so, must remain off campus until the 14-day incubation period has passed.”
