327 @ 3:27 - Temp Checks
327 @ 3:27 - Temp Checks

Tuesday, October 13, 2020

After conferring with ECMC, ECHD and Nurse Bonnie it was determined that 327 would be able to make a slight shift to the morning temp checks for students. 

  • Temperatures will remain an important piece in our battle against Covid.
  • Temps will continue to be taken in the morning, just not at the entrances of the schools.
  • The temp process will take place as a part of the normal morning classroom routine during the opening minutes of the day, very similar to attendance and lunch count routines.
  • We will still have personnel at the entrances of the buildings to make sure masks and other social-distancing practices are being followed. 

Why the change:

  • There is a lot of people-power expended in this process and we are hoping to create “time” for our staff.
  • We are hoping this change smooths and speeds-up the morning arrival routine for our staff and students.
  • The cooler temps create “cooler body” temps of the students when they are exposed to this cooler air in the morning and we have “Lo” readings, which could be inaccurate. 
  • We hope the little delay of walking into the building and to the classroom, the students can acclimate a bit and we can secure an accurate temp. 

USD327 thanks everybody for being flexible with this change and we hope it makes it a bit easier on our parents and other community members impacted. 

Stay Well and Be GREAT!
