Student Health Agreement

Families of students who are attending In-person Learning are required to complete a Student Health Agreement for each child on the TVDSB Parent Portal. This agreement includes a commitment from families to screen children daily using the Ontario Screening Tool

Return to School Decision Tool

Families of students who are attending In-person Learning are required to screen their children daily. The Middlesex London Health Unit, Southwestern Public Health Unit and the Children’s Hospital has designed a three-page Parent Decision Tool to help guide families with the steps to take if they answer ‘yes’ to any of the COVID-19 Daily Screening Checklist questions. 

We appreciate our Thames Valley families completing and adhering to the Student Health Agreement. This COVID-19 screening and decision tool is the most recent information provided to families from our local health unit to support families.

COVID-19 Student Health Agreement

Before sending your child to school, parents and guardians are asked to acknowledge and agree to the following:

Contact Information

  • My contact information (e.g. phone number, email, address, etc.) in the Parent Portal is up-to-date with my child’s school.

Screening Questions

  • It is a requirement that I screen my child for Covid-19 symptoms each school day to ensure they can attend school. I agree that I will monitor my child each day prior to sending them to school. If the answer to any of the following screening questions is yes, I agree that my child will not get on a school bus or be sent to school and that I will promptly contact my health provider and/or the local Public Health Unit, which may result in having my child assessed prior to their return to school.

Positive Test

  • If my child tests positive for COVID-19 or has been directed to isolate, I agree that they will not attend school until I am given notice by my local Public Health Unit that my child is able to return to school.

Negative Test

  • If my child tests negative for COVID-19, I agree that they will self-isolate until they do not have a fever (without using medication) and it has been 24 hours since their symptoms started improving. 

Illness while not at school

  • If my child becomes ill with COVID-19 related symptoms outside of the school day, I agree that I will keep my child at home and promptly report their absence to the school or attendance system. I further agree that I will follow the guidance of my health care practitioner or local Public Health Unit regarding my child’s symptoms.

Illness at school

  • If my child begins to exhibit symptoms associated with COVID-19 during the school day, I understand and agree that my child will be placed in a supervised separate area physically apart from other person(s) at the school. I agree that I will have a plan in place for my child to be picked up from their school as soon as possible after being notified of their symptoms and that I will immediately contact my doctor, health practitioner and/or local Public Health Unit to advise them of my child’s symptoms.

Wearing Masks at school

  • I understand and agree that the Ministry of Education requires all students between the grades of 4-12 to wear a non-medical mask or cloth face covering while indoors during the school day and any time my child is indoors at school.
  • Students in Kindergarten to Grade 3 have been directed by the Board of Trustees to wear face masks while indoors at school, but for those students who are unable, unwilling or have difficulty complying with the mask requirement, there will be no consequences. Reasonable exceptions to the requirement to wear masks (including but not limited to medical conditions) may be obtained from the school administration
