Summer School 2020 Session 2 Self-Screening

We are looking forward to our first day of Summer Session 2 classes on Monday, July 6. As we communicated in previous messages, all students and employees will be required to complete a self-screening process before entry into the building, every day. This provides further details about that self-screening process, as well as return-to-school protocols if you get sick during the summer session.

Self-screening online form:

Every day, every student must complete this online self-screening form. Soon, the form will also be available as a link from the Brebeuf app, and we will send it to students using their Brebeuf email addresses. They can use the same link each day.

If you are “clear” according to the self-screen:

You are clear to come to school. You will be asked by staff upon entry to school to verify that you have successfully completed the self-screen. If you have not completed it when you arrive at school, you will have the chance to complete it right there using your phone or other device if you have them, or to use a paper form as an alternative.

If you need to stay home:

If you answer “yes” that you have certain symptoms or risk factors, the form will guide you to stay home, and will direct you to contact the school to let us know that you are staying home. During July, this contact will be the Principal’s Office, Shani Simonson at ssimonson@brebeuf.org or 317.524.7080.

Return-to-school instructions: 

The public health guidance on this is evolving regularly, so we will provide individualized instructions whenever someone becomes sick. Most recently, the Indiana State Department of Health instructed schools in this way: “If a student presents with symptoms consistent with COVID-19, that student should be sent home and presumed to have COVID until such time as a healthcare provider determines the illness is caused by something else and provides a note. Without a healthcare provider’s note, the student would need to stay home for 10 days and be fever-free for 72 hours without use of fever-reducing medication.”

If a student, employee, or visitor tests positive for COVID-19:

Please inform the Principal’s Office immediately, Shani Simonson at ssimonson@brebeuf.org or 317.524.7080. We will take the appropriate steps from there, in consultation with the Marion County Public Health Department. We can all expect that if we have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive, we will be required to stay home for a period of time, likely to be two weeks.
