Before entering a district building, all staff members must complete a health attestation. If a staff member checks yes to any symptoms and/or questions, they are not to enter the building and must notify their supervisor/principal. (Any symptoms related to a pre-existing condition are excepted.) Principals/supervisors are to share this expectation with staff.
Reviewing Staff Attestation
Administrators/supervisors will designate a staff member to review completed daily staff attestations. This designee(s) will review the google form and follow up with staff members who did not complete the attestation. The designee will share with their administrator/supervisor if there is any concern with answers on attestation form.
If a staff member answers yes to any of the attestation questions, ask:
- Do you have symptoms that are not caused by another condition?
