Testing of Students & Staff

Before students and staff come to school, they will need to conduct a self-check for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. Self check questions below:

Students/Staff will be asked to stay home if they answer YES to any of the following:
• Do you have a cough?
• Do you have a fever over 100.4° now or have you in the past 3 days?
• Have you come in contact with any confirmed COVID-19 positive patients in the last 14 days?
• Are you experiencing shortness of breath or difficulty breathing?
• Are you experiencing other flu-like symptoms, such as gastrointestinal upset, headache, or fatigue?

• Have you experienced recent loss of taste or smell?


Students will be screened for health symptoms and have their temperatures checked when visual evidence is present. Teachers and staff will also have their temperatures checked and logged daily in the office. Any student or staff member who is found to have a fever over 100.4° will be sent home immediately.

Students and staff with a non COVID-19 fever must remain at home until it has been 1 day with no fever (without fever reducing medication) and symptom free.

Parents and employees must complete a Waiver of Liability and Health Screening Agreement at the beginning of the school year with required signatures releasing TS of any liability in regards to COVID-19 and agreeing to only permit non-symptomatic persons to enter the campus.

Any student that exhibits a fever of 100+ will be held in the isolated sick room, and parents will be notified to pick up their child.

If a student presents with any possible COVID-19 symptoms, the office staff will complete an assessment and notify the student’s parents for pick up.

A list for contact tracing will also be compiled and used to contact impacted families consistent with HIPAA/FERPA guidelines.

Absences due to Health Screening restrictions will be counted as excused school day absences. Students who miss school will be given distance learning assistance until they are cleared to return to the classroom.

The Tabernacle School Staff was individually tested for the Covid-19 virus prior to the start of the school year. Tabernacle School will follow the required state guidelines for schools.
