Staff Health Screener
The screening process remains an incredibly powerful tool for helping our school health offices, along with Public Health - Madison & Dane County, collect accurate information about conditions in our community. That information helps us make smart decisions in order to keep our staff, students, and volunteers safely teaching, learning, and supporting through this school year and beyond.
Instead of a daily morning reminder, one reminder email will be sent each quarter containing a link to the new screener. We recommend saving or bookmarking the link to the screener app in your preferred web browser or adding a shortcut to your phone homescreen. Staff can also report illness in myapps.classlink.com/home. The report icon is called "covid screener".
A screener should be submitted any day you:
have symptoms of COVID-19 OR
have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 OR
receive a positive COVID-19 test result (including a positive home test)
Aligned to guidance
The screener aligns with the most recent Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and Public Health - Madison & Dane County (PHMDC) guidance, and will be responsive as guidance evolves. For example, the screener can distinguish between symptoms that indicate COVID on their own – like a loss of taste or smell – from more commonplace symptoms like a runny nose or headache.
When you are prompted to fill out the screener (positive Covid test, Covid symptoms, or close contact):
You will follow the link either from your email or as a bookmark in your browser
Then, log in using your b-number and password.
Partners will continue to use their email to log in as they did previously.
If you have questions about this process, please reach out via Let's Talk (Health and Wellness topic) on the district's website.
Thank you for your partnership in keeping our MMSD community safe!
