New Mandatory COVID Self-Assessment for Students

Monday February 8, 2021

 

Re: Daily COVID-19 Self-Assessment for students

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

I hope you and your families are well. Our staff is very excited to see our Essex District High School students returning for in-person instruction. Since September 2020, students have been required to complete a daily COVID-19 self-assessment before reporting to school. As part of our ongoing effort to safely provide in-person instruction to our students, the Ministry of Education has directed all school boards to implement a process to confirm that board employees and secondary students have completed the self-assessment prior to or upon arrival at the school.

 

Beginning on Monday February 8, 2021, each school day, all students attending in-person must complete the electronic daily COVID-19 self-assessment preferably before they come to school. The confirmation that a student may come to school will be forwarded automatically to the school Principal.  The only data stored and accessible to the Principal is either "Go to school" or "Do not go to school". The individual question responses are not stored.  If a student is directed not to attend, please report their absence to the school.

 

Our staff will review this procedure regularly with students as they transition to this new daily practice.

 

The updated self-assessment can be accessed at:   https://public.publicboard.ca/COVIDScreening/  The link will also be on the Essex DHS Edsby page and the school website.

 

A letter will go home with all students on Monday February 8 and Tuesday February 9. In it, you will find a QR code that will allow quick access to the COVID Self-Assessment using a personal device. 

 

                                                                    

Thank you for your ongoing support and flexibility as we navigate this unusual school year. Please feel free to call the school if you have any further questions.

 

Sincerely,

Mr. S. Querbach

Principal
