Family Assurance of Student Health
- Prior to sending their children back to campus for the first time, families will be asked to submit a signed “Fayette County Public Schools Family Assurance of Student Health Agreement,” (Appendix D) attesting that they will monitor their child’s health each day and not send them to school if they have a temperature of 100.4° or greater or are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19.
- They will also agree not to send their child to school for at least 10 days if they have been in close physical contact (6 feet or closer for at least 15 minutes) with a person who is known to have COVID-19 or if they have travelled out of the country or to one of the states on the governor’s travel advisory list found at https://govestatus.egov.com/ky-travel-advisory. Students who have a member of their household test positive for COVID-19 should not return to school until they have been released from quarantine by the health department.
- The agreement also advises families that if their child is tested for COVID-19, they cannot return to school until the test results come back negative.
- Before sending their children to school each day, families are expected to attest that their child does not have a fever (defined as a temperature of 100.4°F or greater) and has not exhibited symptoms of COVID-19 within the past 48 hours. A “Daily Home Screening for Students” (Appendix E) should be sent home with each family.
