Dear Cherry Creek Schools Staff and Parents:
Tomorrow is the beginning of the 2020-21 school year and I’m pleased to let you know that the Cherry Creek School District has added another tool to help protect the health and safety of our In-Person learning students and staff, as well as their families and our broader community. CCSD has developed the “COVID Symptom Checker,” an easy-to-use, online tool that will help us mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
The COVID Symptom Checker is a quick and convenient way for staff, parents and students to identify potential COVID symptoms. The tool also provides direction on what to do - or not do - if a student or staff member is experiencing any of those symptoms.
All students and staff members are expected to do their part to protect the health and well-being of our school communities by using the COVID Symptom Checker before they come to school each day. There are three easy ways to access the Symptom Checker:
1. Log in to myCherryCreek and click on the COVID Symptom Checker tile.
2. Use the QR code below or attached to this letter.
3. Or click on this link - https://bit.ly/ccsd-health.
Once you open the COVID Symptom Checker, you’ll see several simple questions to answer. After you answer the questions, your results page will come up. Employees and student families must follow the instructions on the Symptom Checker if results are yellow or red. Using the Symptom Tracker should take less than a minute and will help protect the health of people inside and outside our schools.
For more information about how to use the COVID Symptom Checker, watch this short video.
Chery Creek Schools has created a series of back-to-school videos on different aspects of In-Person learning. You can find them on Cherry Creek TV, the Cherry Creek Schools’ YouTube channel.
I want to thank our In-Person learning students and staff in advance for using the COVID Symptom Checker before you come to school each day. Your diligence will help us mitigate the spread of COVID-19, contribute to a safe educational environment and support our efforts to keep our schools open for In-Person learning during this pandemic. Together, we can do this!
