COVID-19 Health Screening Protocol for SAT/ACT Testing

In accordance with the HCPS COVID-19 Health Plan, all visitors will be required to follow the visitor protocol.  The visitor protocol is as follows:

  • Visitors to the building/on campus will be required to use a cloth face covering.
  • Visitors will be screened prior to being allowed entry into the school building or campus.
  • There will be no volunteers permitted in buildings.
  • Visitors will be limited to registered examinees and testing staff.
  • Parents/guardians dropping off or picking up students will be asked to wait in their vehicle for students to enter testing site or be released from the building after completion of testing.
  • Visitors are required to stay within the designated testing areas of the school building/campus.Anyone outside of the designated may be subject to dismissal from testing.

A staff member will be required to screen each visitor prior to allowing entry into the school building/campus. The screening process consists of a review of questions which can be found on handout, and a temperature check. If the visitor answers “Yes” to any of the questions or has a fever over 100.4 degrees, they will not be permitted to enter the school building/be on campus.

The questions provided can be administered in a variety of ways to include:

  • Printing and laminating and having a staff member greet the visitor at the front entrance. The visitor can be handed the laminated copy to review. The laminated copy will need to be wiped down between each use.
  • Printing and posting the questions on the front entrance closest to the camera/buzzer system, and the staff member can review the questions with the visitor using the camera/buzzer system.

If the visitor answers “No” to all questions, the staff member can proceed with the temperature check.

When conducting the temperature check, ensure the thermometer is perpendicular to the visitor’s forehead, and that the forehead is unobstructed (bangs, hats, headcoverings). If the temperature is under 100.4 degrees, the visitor will be permitted to enter the school building/be on campus.
