Daily Student Health Checks!!
Daily StudentHealth Checks need to be completed DAILY before your child can attend school. They must be completed by 8:30am.
Last week, you received communication from the Northshore School District regarding COVID testing occurring for all students in grades 2-12 beginning this week. Testing for hybrid group A will be Tuesday this week, and Monday every week after that. Testing for hybrid group B will be every Friday. Please read this information and then follow the links provided to either provide consent or opt out.
You can go to this site to provide your consent for your child to take a COVID test. When you sign up, you will be asked to submit a unique code for East Ridge:
This code above is unique to our school and will allow us to know which students and staff are participating in this important method of keeping COVID cases low and school buildings open. Last week, four of our Northshore elementary schools piloted the batch testing program and everything went smoothly.
Please read through the letter you received from the district for details. A few key points to emphasize:
Students in Grades 2-12 can test
Your child will only be tested if you give your consent at this link
To opt out your child, click on this link
If a student or staff member is opted out of testing, but their classroom cohort has a positive COVID test result, they will still be required to quarantine for 14 days
Here is a link to a slide deck with more information about our district testing process.
Thank you for your patience in the morning and afternoon! Here are some ways you can help:
Complete the daily health check before 8:30am.
If you have child locks on your car doors, please unlock your doors immediately when arriving at the curb, so staff can open the door quickly
Your child should be able to operate their seatbelt without adult assistance
Your child should be ready to exit the vehicle with mask on and all of their belongings gathered
Your child should exit the vehicle on the passenger side
The passenger side of your vehicle should be free from objects that will fall out when the door opens
Your child should be able to put on and carry their own backpack
Drivers must stay in their vehicle
At the end of the day, we dismiss sibling groups at 3:17. If you are picking up more than one child, arrive in the pick up line early, if possible
Have your family sign clearly visible on the visor or passenger side, so staff can see it from a distance
PLEASE!! Give our bus drivers the right of way. Please leave the exit from the bus lane clear as you are waiting in the pick up line from the Saybrook side. Do not block them when they are trying to leave.
Thanks for your help!
