Overview — Keeping the Community Healthy Through Screening

The most important thing that we can do to prevent virus transmission among our school community, is to not bring it onto campus in the first place. Students and employees will be expected and asked to stay home in the following situations: 

  • When exhibiting symptoms associated with COVID-19. Everyone should become familiar with these symptoms, and we will establish a daily self-screening protocol for every student and employee (see below). 
  • After close contact with persons who have tested positive for COVID-19 or are symptomatic
  • After returning from travel to certain locations, as guided by CDC or local public health officials 

All students and employees will be required to complete a daily self-screening protocol before they enter the building. We suggest that you complete this before leaving the house each morning. Our screening tool will provide guiding questions which give daily reminders of symptoms to be looking for, and other situations in which students should stay home. It will also provide for the automated collection of information by the school, which will be treated with the proper privacy and confidentiality restrictions which apply to all student health information which schools require.

Safe Return From Travel

When considering travel and returning from travel, please be aware of how your travel activities may increase your risk of exposure to Covid-19. If your travel has included higher risk activities, you may be advised to quarantine for two weeks upon your return. Please use the CDC guidelines in the link below to learn more about how to minimize your risk. If you have any questions, please contact reopening@brebeuf.org.

MyMedBot

Brebeuf Jesuit will be using the MyMedBot app as its daily screening instrument for students. Students and parents should have received an invitation to download the App during the week of 8-3-2020. This email will contain a code that is necessary to correctly connect with the school.

For more information on the use of the App, you may read the instructions from the company HERE.

If you have not received your email or need technical assistance from the school, please contact JD Ferries-Rowe.
