Home Screening Process for Students - Parent Agreement Form

Before a student can begin the 2020-2021 academic year at Holy Cross High School, all parents/       guardians are asked to read, agree to, and sign this Parent Agreement Form regarding daily symptom checks at home.

Before students leave for school each morning, we ask that each student be evaluated at home by their parent or guardian for the presence of symptoms related to COVID-19 infection. Please refer to CDC Guideline on  Symptoms of Coronavirus at www.cdc.gov    
COVID 19 Symptoms include:

  • Fever or chills  
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Rash / Chilblain foot Rash
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

If students are sent home from school with COVID-19 symptoms, a note will be obtained from the medical provider and submitted to the school nurse prior to their return to school. The parent or guardian will also agree to notify their child’s school nurse and share their symptoms. If a student has no symptoms, including no elevated temperature and has not received any antipyretic (fever reducing) medications (acetaminophen or ibuprofen) prior to their arrival at school, they may attend school wearing their face coverings. It is the assumption of this agreement that any student who is sent to school by bus or drop off has had no symptoms in the past 24 hours.

The school nurse will notify the Principal or his designee of any symptomatic or positive tested student and document their symptom profile and dates of illness on a chart to be shared weekly with the President
