Daily Student Health Certifications
As part of our safety measures for in-person learning, District 65 will use a web-based system to manage our health self-certification process called CrisisGo Safety iPass. Self Certifications are used to monitor symptoms of illness and potential exposure to COVID-19.
A parent/caregiver is required to take each child’s temperature and submit a self certification form prior to coming to school in the morning. This is a critical step in keeping our school communities safe and is important in preventing the spread of COVID-19.
The simple, three-step process will take two minutes or less per child. The self-certification form can be completed in multiple languages and collects only essential information related to COVID-19. The process is required to be completed daily:
- Take your child’s temperature. Students with a temperature of 100.4 or greater must stay home.
- Complete the brief self-certification form for each returning child.
- Follow any next steps as indicated by the color badge received upon completion.
Each morning at 6am, an email reminder with a link to the form will be sent to the primary email provided at the time of student registration. If the self-certification is not completed within 30 minutes, an email will also be sent to the secondary email on file, if one was provided. This is a default feature that cannot be modified at this time.
The system is easy to use and can be accessed on any device. There is also a free app ‘CrisisGo’ that can be downloaded to any smartphone (data rates apply). Forms can be completed via the app by clicking on the ‘iPass’ option.
Please make this a part of your morning routine and complete prior to leaving in the morning - doing so ensures school staff can monitor accordingly before children arrive. Staff will be checking upon student arrival to school to ensure this process was completed.
To assist families with getting acclimated, daily email notifications will begin the week of February 8. This first week is considered a practice week and we encourage families to help get their child used to this new routine. We are relying on your cooperation and full support as we work to ensure a safe environment for all.
