Temperature Checks Ended
The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE), in consultation with the Kentucky Department for Public Health (DPH), has updated the flagship Healthy at School guidance based on the latest information from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Temperature screening expectations have been changed to state that only symptomatic students need to be screened for fever. These criteria also must be in place for staff.
Routine temperature screenings prior to entering the school building or the bus are not required. Students who exhibit symptoms of illness while at school should have their temperatures taken as part of a physical assessment completed by school staff.
Families are asked to continue the prescreening of their sons before sending them to school.
Students will still report to their designated locations in the morning to assist with proper distancing.
