Student 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.
In place of the daily reminder email every morning, we will be sending out one reminder quarterly which will contain a link to the new screener. We recommend saving or bookmarking the link to the app in your preferred web browser. You should complete and submit the screener any day your student:
- has symptoms of COVID-19 OR
- receives a positive COVID-19 test result
- Is a close contact to someone who has tested positive
Aligned to guidance
The screener is more robust and user-friendly, and 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.
If you are prompted to fill out the screener (tested positive for Covid-19, Covid symptoms, or a close contact to someone who tested positive):
You will follow the link either from your email or as a bookmark in your browser
Then, log in using your student's Infinite Campus information.
If you have questions about this process, please reach out via Let's Talk (Health and Wellness topic) on the district's website.
