Daily Health Screen & Attestation

  •  Daily Health Check & Attestation

    • All students and staff MUST complete a health screening AND attestation each morning at home before boarding a school bus or entering a school – on days they attend school in-person.


    • Screening includes taking one’s temperature, checking for ill symptoms and considering COVID-19 exposures and/or COVID-19 testing. (Families without access to a thermometer at home should contact their school nurse for help with connecting families to potential resources.)


    • Attestation is a declaration that the health screening has been done and shares the results.  The SVSD attestation process will happen electronically via email or text – sent daily to a student’s primary guardian. This will be sent each day that a student is scheduled to be at school in person – to be completed at home. 


    NOTE: The SVSD email/text attestation can only be sent to the Guardian1/Family1 contact (as noted in Skyward). If a Family2 guardian is caring for the student, they will need to use QR Code/link published on their school’s website, to complete the daily health screen for their student, before they go to school.


    • Watch a video on how the health check/attestation works. (The SVSD process will happen electronically. No paper copy is needed as the video suggests.)


    • School Attestation Questions:
      1. Do you plan to come to school in person today?
      2. Does your student have any of the following symptoms that are not caused by another condition? (Please select all that apply)

    Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

    Fever (100.4 F or greater) or chills


    Recent loss of taste or smell

    Congestion or runny nose

    Sore throat

    Muscle or body aches


    Unusual fatigue

    Nausea or vomiting


    None of the above

    3.  Do any of the following statements apply to your student?

    Been in close contact with some who has tested positive for COVID-19

    Told by a public health or medical professional to self-monitor, self-isolate, or self-quarantine because of concerns about COVID-19 infection

    Had a positive COVID-19 test for active virus in the past 10 days

    None of the above

    1. If you answer YES to any of these questions, stay home and contact your school.


    • Daily health screening and attestation is a condition of in-person learning attendance Parent/guardians:  Please make sure this important step happens before your student leaves home on in-person learning days. Students at school without attestation will be tracked, screened and parents contacted.  This will mean less face-to-face time with teachers for the student.  Students who do not attest should not be sent to school. 


    • Students learning at home would not submit the health screen/attestation – only students coming to school.


    • All staff are required to complete the same health screening and attestation daily.
