At SAS, there are multiple checkpoints and protocols we use each day to help protect our community.
- Daily Health Declaration Form
- Entry Gate Inspections
- Midday Health Inspections
- Incidents of Contamination Process
Parents will be required to take their child’s temperature every evening and morning and report it on a daily basis. Failure to do so may prevent your child from entering SAS campuses or buses.
The Daily Health Self Declaration Forms must be submitted through the SAS TMS App. Parents will find instruction on how to download and install the app in the SAS TMS Health Self-Declaration Manual - Parent.
For additional support, parents will find a video tutorial in the Transportation @SAS Folder in the Resources section in Schoology. Daily temperature reporting summary data information will be reported to the local government and SEC as needed.
Entry gates have been equipped with thermal imaging cameras. All students, faculty and staff will go through designated entry gates so that their temperature can be checked as they enter campus.
If there is a queue, students, faculty and staff will line up on the designated 1 meter spaced “Physical Distancing” markers outside the gate to maintain proper spacing as needed. SAS administration staff and security persons will be stationed in these areas to ensure proper queuing and spacing.
As students, pass through the entry points, security personnel will check the following:
- Confirm and scan students valid SAS ID
- Confirm the temperature scan is below 37.3°C
If the temperature scan is at or above 37.3°C, students, faculty and staff go to secondary screening. Additional details have been outlined in the Medical Response Protocols for each campus:
Students’ temperatures will be checked during their lunch period. The process will be as follows:
- Teachers will use non-contact IR temperature guns to check each student’s temperature.
- Teachers will check all students’ temperature.
- Teachers will follow the Incidents of Contamination Process stated below if there is a reading at or above 37.3°C.
If there is a concern over contamination at school regarding COVID-19, the school will take the following steps in response to such a concern being raised. Concerns could be raised in regard to students, parents, faculty, staff, or administration. Under the current circumstances, SAS has a responsibility to remain informed on situations occurring throughout our community.
The Head Nurse on campus will collect facts and report to the Operational Risk Team regarding concerns over any potential contamination or medical risk occurring on campus. The nurse may contact students, family members, or any staff identified as a potential concern.
The overall response and actions taken by SAS will be approved by the Head of School and can include the following action items:
- SAS will comply with all requirements from the CDC and SEC in response to any incident reported to those organizations.
- Outside organizations can be utilized for consulting on action plans when deemed appropriate, such as International SOS and Control Risk.
- No area of the school will be re-opened until we have confirmation that the root of the contamination is no longer an impact on campus and that the identified areas have been disinfected.
- Any person identified as a potential source of risk in this regard, will not be allowed to return to campus until they can provide a note from a medical doctor or institution that they are clear to do so.Any person identified as a potential source of risk in this regard, who is found to be on campus, will be sent to a pre-determined holding area and the medical protocols for infectious control will be followed.
