Discontinuation of Employee and Student Symptom (Health) and Temperature Checks


    As you know, the CDC and Michigan Health and Human Services Department have dramatically reduced COVID safety protocols for K-12 schools. We have maintained all of our original COVID protocols at this point. However, in consultation with the Detroit Health Department, effective Monday, March 14th, we will discontinue the process of requiring verbal and online symptom checks (health checks) and temperature checks for employees and students. This discontinuation will include all afterschool indoor and outdoor extracurricular events, including sporting events. As stated earlier, we will maintain 3 feet of distance during whole group instruction, weekly testing for all employees and students, deep cleaning of classrooms, offices, and buses, and universal masking. We will reconsider universal masking if we clear the Spring Break period with low infection rates.
