COVID-19 Daily Active Screening for Students

Limestone Learning Foundation

All students, staff, bus drivers, bus monitors and visitors to schools must perform a daily self-assessment for symptoms of COVID-19 before each school day and putting them on a school bus. Staying home when sick is important to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses in our community

COVID-19 Screening Tool

Parents and caregivers must review the following checklist with their child/student before sending them to school each day.

Does your child/student have any of the following:

  • Fever 37.8°C or higher
  • New or worsening cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sore throat, trouble swallowing
  • Runny nose (not related to seasonal allergies or other known conditions)
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Not feeling well (e.g. chills, fatigue, pink eye, lack of appetite)
  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea

, stay home and self-isolate right away. Call your health care provider or go to an assessment centre to find out if you need a COVID-19 test.

If a child's/student’s symptoms are related to a pre-existing medical condition, seek advice from your health care provider. If the symptoms are new, contact your health care provider or take your child/student to the COVID-19 assessment centre for testing and guidance.

Family Responsibilities

All students, staff, bus drivers, and visitors to schools must perform a daily self-assessment for symptoms of COVID-19. KFL&A Public Health has produced an information sheet to help families understand the important role they play to:

  • Screen students each morning
  • What happens if students develop COVID-19 symptoms at school
  • What happens if a student requires testing for COVID-19
  • Information for students with ongoing medical conditions
  • How to prevent and control COVID-19

The Limestone District School Board is situated on traditional territories of the Anishinaabe & Haudenosaunee.
