To maintain a safe and healthy environment prior to the start of the school day, a Daily Health Screening will need to be completed by 7:30 a.m. each day using the RUVNA web app. Students and parents will receive a link via text message and email each morning, and the app will display a QR code upon successful completion. Parents should talk to their children about the screening symptoms and make sure the screening is completed with approval to come to school. Students will be asked upon arrival to show the QR code for that specific day before entry on campus.
Covid-19 related symptoms may include the onset of NEW and UNEXPLAINED symptoms:
Fever of 100° F or greater
Shortness of breath or difficulty of breathing
Gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
Sudden loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 (Close Contact)
If any new or unusual symptoms for the child keep them home and contact your healthcare provider. Follow the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) Algorithm for evaluating a child with COVID-19 symptoms or exposure. If the symptoms are usual for the child (such as allergies, migraines, asthma) or caused by a known diagnosis (such as ear infection, strep throat), seek care as usual and follow the Trinity sick policy (see below) for specific diagnosis or symptoms on when to return to school. Stay home until fever-free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medications if fever is present.
Known exposure and/or a positive case of COVID-19 of students, household members or employees must be reported to the school. The school will reach out to the VDH for further guidance, with each situation being evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
If you think you have been exposed and are waiting on a COVID-19 test result you should remain home.
