Attestations

Daily Health Screening/Attestations

All staff, students and visitors on campus will be required to complete a daily health/attestation form (Visitor, Student: English | Spanish) or an in-person screening, including a temperature check, prior to entering the school or boarding a bus, in accordance with the Snohomish Health District’s COVID-19 Screening Protocols.

Attestation Forms

English     Spanish

Students showing any COVID-19 symptoms should not come to school.

Screening: The process by which a person is asked by someone else (the screener) if they have specific symptoms or have been in contact with someone with symptoms. If the person answers no to all questions, the screener takes their temperature. If their temperature is under 100.4, they can proceed.

Attestation: the process by which a person attests (confirms) that they are symptom-free, have not been around someone with symptoms, and that their temperature is under 100.4. This is documented on a signed form by a guardian.
