Health and Safety
THE IMPORTANT ROLE OF FAMILIES
Families play a vital role in maintaining safety on campus. The number one safety measure is to keep a student home when sick. We want to work with families to support student adherence to safety measures while on campus as well as at home. We understand there are families with higher risk members in their households. As a community that prioritizes health and safety, we must all do our part to adhere to state health recommendations and regulations to control transmission and potential future outbreaks. Moreover, there may be times when we ask families to comply with broader safety measures and we greatly appreciate cooperation in this regard. We also expect questions and welcome feedback and suggestions. We are eager to listen help each family navigate any concerns.
All members of the Hamlin Robinson School community have a shared responsibility to prevent the spread of illness when they are aware or suspect that they have contracted a communicable disease. It is imperative all members of our school community remain committed to the safety policies and procedures listed in this and future communications to help keep students, staff, and faculty safe.
Health and Safety Protocol
- Can my student access instruction if they need to stay home, but are well enough to engage in learning?
- What if my student does not feel well?
- What if my student does not feel well, but their symptoms can be attributed to other things (ex., allergies)?
- How long should I keep my student home?
- My family has had 'close contact' with someone outside our household with a positive report of COVID-19. Should I send my student to in-person instruction?
- What if my student receives a positive COVID-19 test?
Staff and students with any illness must stay home. Students and staff will be assessed for illness before attending school each day. Parents must be on the alert for signs of illness in their children and to keep them home when they are sick.
Daily screenings will be completed prior to arrival at school using the health screening program, Ruvna. Community members will be asked whether they are experiencing any symptoms, have been in close contact with anyone with a confirmed COVID-19 test, or were otherwise told to self-quarantine because of concerns regarding COVID-19 infection.
