Mandate school-level outreach to at-risk students (those with previously identified mental health issues).
Consider procurement of additional mental health assessment services including crisis management support.
Set district-wide health guidelines
At a minimum, any child or school staff who develops respiratory symptoms should be provided and wear a surgical mask, be transported and quarantined in a health isolation area that the district identifies, and sent home until cleared to return to school by a qualified health professional.
Provide guidance to schools for changes to school-based health screening (hearing, vision, etc.).
Do When Schools are Open and Operating
Encourage schools to implement a mental health screening for all students.
Establish ongoing reporting protocols for school staff to evaluate physical and mental health status. At this time, there is no guidance indicating that students would submit to a physical examination before entering the school building.
