It is very important that you complete the Wellness Screening in Skyward for your child each day BEFORE 8:30 (if your child attends in the AM) or BEFORE 12:30 (if your child attends in the PM).

When your student arrives at school and their Wellness Screening has not been done in Skyward before this time, they must go to the gym to be individually screened and have their temperature taken instead of going directly to their classroom.

Here are some ideas that have worked for other families and staff!

  • If your child has a school iPad at home, a link to Skyward should be readily available. You could set an alarm on the iPad for 5 minutes before this time to get the Wellness Screening done before we run our reports!
  • You could set an alarm in your phone to repeat each day as a reminder to complete the Wellness Screening.
  • Add the Skyward App to your phone to make it easy to access the Wellness Screening.
  • Add a link to Skyward to the home screen of your smart phone to make it easy to access the Wellness Screening
  • Go to http://www.rsd407.org/ → ”Parents & Community” tab → ”Family Access” to find the website you should link to
  • Here is a link to how to do this on an Android device
  • Here is a link to how to do this on an Apple device
If you cannot complete the Wellness Screening in Skyward because you do not have internet access at home, you can send a paper COVID-19 DAILY HEALTH SCREENING ATTESTATION form for each child each day.
