Parent Protocols – Checking students health symptoms

Parent Protocols – Checking students health symptoms

The Clark County School District would like to remind all parents about checking for student health symptoms before sending students to school.

If your child is not feeling well or has any symptoms of COVID-19, has been exposed to someone with COVID-19, or tested positive with COVID-19, they must stay home from school. Please notify the school nurse immediately if any of these occur. 

Here are 5 questions that parents should ask before sending their student to school each day includes:

  1. Does my student have a new cough that cannot be attributed to another health condition?
  2. Does my student have new shortness of breath that cannot be attributed to another health condition?
  3. Does my student have any one of the symptoms: symptoms: fever (100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher), chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, increasing congestion, runny nose, or new loss of taste or smell?
  4. Has my student come into close contact (within six feet for more than 15 minutes over a 24-hour period) with someone who has a laboratory-confirmed covid-19 diagnosis in the past 10 days?
  5. Has my student received a laboratory-confirmed positive COVID-19 diagnosis in the last 10 days?
