Daily Health Screening Protocol for Students
As part of Cannon’s mitigation strategy in an effort to minimize the prevalence of COVID-19 cases presenting on-campus, we are requiring all parents to complete a daily health screening for their children. The school has chosen an electronic platform called Magnus that will facilitate the collection of this information each day. The consistent completion of this health screen by our community will help promote the safety of everyone on campus.
Please find below the guidelines and expectations for this process:
• The screening tool must be completed for each child via the Magnus Mobile App as follows: Car riders and walkers must complete daily screenings by 7:30 a.m. Bus riders must complete daily screenings by 6:30 a.m. if they ride Buses #18 (Mooresville) or #20 (Salisbury). Bus riders on all other buses must complete daily screenings by 6:40 a.m.
• If the parent receives a Stop Sign after completing the screening tool, they must contact our nursing staff at firstname.lastname@example.org
to discuss next steps with our nursing team.
• If a parent misses the cut-off time or experiences technical difficulty, they must print a copy of the daily health screening (located here)
, complete it, and send it to school with their child. This screening form must be turned into the bus driver if the student is riding the bus, or to the advisor if the student is a car rider.
• For bus riders, if a student arrives at the bus stop without a completed screening tool, the bus driver will perform the screening for the student. If the student passes, they will be allowed to board the bus, however, any student that fails the screening will not be allowed to board the bus. For this reason, it is imperative that parents whose child(ren) are riding the bus must not leave the bus stop until the driver has confirmed that your child is cleared to ride the bus. Repeated failure to complete the screening tool will result in suspension of bus service and requiring the student(s) to remote learn for a minimum of two weeks.
• For car riders, if a student arrives at school without a completed screening, the following protocol will be followed:
1. The first time a student arrives without a completed screening, they will be screened by Cannon personnel (depending upon the student’s age, parents may be contacted to complete the screening questions), and at the same time, the school will issue an initial warning to the parents.
2. The second time a student arrives without a completed screening, they will be screened by Cannon personnel (depending upon the student’s age, parents may be contacted to complete the screening questions), and at the same time, the school will issue a second warning to the parents.
3. The third time a student arrives without a completed screening, they will be screened by Cannon personnel (depending upon the student’s age, parents may be contacted to complete the screening questions), and at the same time, the school will issue a third and final warning to the parents.
4. The fourth time a student arrives without a completed screening, the parents will be contacted to pick up their child(ren). Students will be asked to remote learn for a period of not less than two weeks before they can return to campus.
- Late arriving students should be escorted into the building by their parent, at which time a screening form will need to be completed by the parent before the child can proceed to class
- Students, faculty, and staff with symptoms during the school day will immediately report to Cannon’s Nurses.
- Cannon has renovated a centrally located space as a triage room to initially screen ill students. Upon screening, students will either move to an isolation area or be directed to an alternate health room for treatment. This alternate health room is also a destination for routine well-visits and treatments such as receiving medications or help with minor playground injuries.
