St. Johns County School District creates online form to report positive COVID-19 cases – Action News Jax

ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. — The St. Johns County School District has created an online form for parents to report if a student tests positive for COVID-19.

This form will allow the SJCSD to be faster in communicating cases of COVID-19. When a student tests positive for COVID-19 and a parent reports it on the form, all parents in that student’s class will be notified.

The form is available here.

Read the letter from SJCSD below:

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

With the increase in the number of COVID-19 and the need to ensure that we are timely with our communication, we are asking parents to use an online form to report a positive student and we will adjust the way we communicate. with you regarding a positive case of COVID-19. on the campus.

To notify us of your child’s positive COVID-19 test result, we ask that you complete the Optional Positive Student Report Form. However, if you feel you need to discuss your child’s COVID-19 scenario in detail, please feel free to bypass the form and call the District COVID Support Team at 904-547-8230.

When we receive information about a positive student, we will communicate to all parents in the class that there has been a positive case in your child’s class. In the past, we only communicated with close contacts. By making this adjustment, we can inform parents more quickly and efficiently.

We continue to ask that you monitor your child’s symptoms and keep them home if they are not well. We want students to learn in school and we also want children to be healthy and safe. We are in this together and will continue to work together to navigate this new normal.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. If you have any questions, please call 904-547-8230 for further clarification.

Truly,

Administration of the SJCSD
