Daily COVID Self-Screen
This is a reminder to all staff and students to self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms BEFORE leaving for school using the self-assessment checklist. To assist with screening each day, students can use the province’s COVID-19 school screening tool found at https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/. Screening every day before leaving for school is one of the best ways to help keep our schools and community safe.
In addition to the self-screening requirement, the Ministry of Education is now requiring secondary students to validate the completion of the self-screening when they arrive to class each day. This validation will require students to sign in and indicate that they have performed the self-screening and are clear to attend in person.
June 9, 2021 – The school screening tool has been updated to align with the Ministry of Health’s new guidance for individuals who may be experiencing post-vaccine symptoms.
