Lake Orion Community Schools will require all students and staff entering or using a district facility to self-screen for COVID-19-related symptoms prior to arriving. Approval is noted with a green badge.
Alternate submission method
For those without the mobile phone app, staff members at the buildings will have an iPad where they can log in and complete the screener upon arrival.
Dragon Virtual students who come into a building but are not registered in the Clear To Go app will use an alternate method once they arrive.
CDC "close contact": Someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 cumulative minutes starting from 48 hours before illness onset
- What does screening look like?
- Students and staff will complete the "Clear to Go" app each morning, prior to arriving at an LOCS facility/boarding a bus, to ensure the individual is symptom-free.
- What will happen if students/parents do not show the app at the bus stop?
Students riding the bus must show the Clear To Go app to the driver before boarding. If a Grade K-8 student does not show the app, they will be seated in the front of the bus and parents will be contacted when the student arrives at school for the app to be completed. If this becomes a persistent problem, students will not be allowed to ride the bus.
Please also consider if you have wi-fi at the bus stop. If there is no wi-fi, students may need to take a screen shot of the green pass for Clear To Go to show to the bus driver. High school students will not be permitted on the bus without the Clear To Go pass.
- If you can't get the Clear to Go app to work or if your child doesn't have a cell phone and/or parents don't have one how do we show clearance to be allowed to go to school?
- The family is asked to complete the app each morning before the student leaves the house. It will then register as clearance at the school and in the district system. Schools will have an alternate method (staff member with an iPad) for students to complete the health screening if the student or their parents cannot produce the green badge on a cell phone.
- How do I know if my student is too sick to attend school?
- The Clear To Go app asks questions regarding the CDC-guided symptoms of COVID-19. If any of those symptoms appear, the student is asked to remain home until the symptoms clear for at least 24 hours.
- How will Clear To Go work with multiple students in a family?
- If a parent has multiple students in the district they should have received an email to set up screening preferences for each student.
- For any child whose family opted to do parent screening, they will need to screen for each (and as long as the parent email on each is the same they will have access on the same app for each child).
- For students whose family is opting to have the student screen themselves, the self-screening student will need to have the app on their own device, and the parent will not have access on their app to screen (for example a high school student and an elementary student).
- The parents should receive a notification if the student who is self-screening fails so they will be aware of when that happens.
