    • Sylvan Meadows will be communicating further before the fall on self-screening, before students leave the home, to ensure that a student or staff member does not attend school if they have symptoms or are ill.
    • screening information tool will be provided to each family upon registration, along with a form to sign indicating that each family has read and understood the screening proceedure.
    • Visitors of the school will be asked to do the same self-screening prior to attending the school.
