Note: The image is for a family with three students. This screen will look different if you have one student, two students, or more students enrolled in Kent School District.
Step 3: Send Your Student to School or Keep Them Home
Once you have saved your answers, a confirmation message will appear for each student to determine if they can go to school.
- If you see the red triangle, keep your student home and report the absence.
- If you see the green checkmark, send your student to school.
Note: The image is for a family with three students. This screen will look different if you have one student, two students, or more students enrolled in Kent School District. In this example, two of the students can go to school but one must stay home that day.
The symptoms listed on the COVID-19 student wellness form overlap with common chronic conditions, including asthma, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, seasonal allergies, life-threatening allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, congenital heart conditions, and more. These symptoms also overlap with common infectious diseases including influenza, the common cold, norovirus (stomach flu), roseola, and more.
A student who presents with symptoms related to a condition that is not COVID-19 may return to school with a negative COVID-19 test or a letter from their healthcare provider indicating that their symptoms are not related to COVID-19.
Student Wellness Will be Confirmed at School
School staff will confirm all students have a completed wellness screening form for the day, review their answers, and check them for a fever and other COVID-19 symptoms if needed upon arrival.
School staff members are trained on signs and symptoms of COVID-19 to look for during the school day and at entry for students who may be feeling unwell.They are also trained in how to protect student privacy during re-screening.
If you answered YES to any of the questions and the student has already arrived at school, the student will wait in a wellness room until they can be picked up to go home. School staff will inform the school nurse of a YES answer for follow-up.
If you did not complete the wellness screening form and the student has already arrived at school, staff will call home to request a verbal health check or prompt a digital health check.
If the student has a temperature of 100.4 or higher, they will be asked to step aside and be re-screened with another thermometer. If a student has a verified temperature of 100.4 or higher, they will be brought to the wellness room until they can be picked up to go home. School staff will inform the school nurse of a YES answer on or of fever for follow-up.
