Reopening Schools During COVID-19

Pausing our transition to blended learning

Roseville Area Schools recently announced that our staged transition to blended learning for all grades is on hold, due to rising spread of COVID-19 in our community.

Use the Daily Screening at Home Checklist

Students, families and staff must check for symptoms at home before entering a school building. We require everyone to complete a daily screening for COVID-19 symptoms using the Daily Screening at Home Checklist. You must pass the daily screen to enter a school building. Everyone who enters a school building should not have symptoms related to COVID-19 and the screening tool explains exactly what symptoms to check for. Anyone who has had a lab-confirmed positive COVID-19 test, or who was in lose contact as defined by Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) must stay home. This checklist will help you decide each day if you need to stay home or if you can enter a school building. The Daily Screening at Home Checklist is available in English, Spanish, Amharic, Hmong, Karen, Nepali, Oromo, Simple Chinese and Somali.

MDH developed specific guidelines on symptoms based on what has been learned about COVID-19 in the past several months. The goal is to reduce the spread of the virus. When people with symptoms stay home and follow isolation/quarantine guidelines, our schools are safer places for everyone. 

The Daily Screening at Home Checklist must be done everyday by everyone before entering a school building. 

If you do not pass the daily screen, please stay home. 

Thank you for working together to keep our schools safe and reduce the spread of COVID-19.
