Healthy in Hopkins

There are easy steps we can all take to maintain health and safety in our buildings.

Step One: Complete Your Daily Health Screening

Everyone entering a Hopkins Public School building (students, staff, or visitors) is required to complete a self-check for symptoms before coming to school using our Daily Symptom Checklist. Parents, please go through this screening before the school day on days when your child is scheduled to be in school for in-person learning. The Daily Symptom Checklist is also available in Spanish, Somali, and Hmong.

Step Two: Practice the Four W's

Hopkins students and staff will be asked to practice the Four W's while on the bus and at school:

Graphic says Watch Your Distance and shows two students sitting at desks with an arrow showing 6 feet apart.
Graphic says Wash Your Hands and shows soapy water at sink with clock depicting 20 seconds.
Graphic says Wear a Face Covering and shows a person wearing a face mask over their mouth and nose.
Graphic says When Sick, Stay Home and shows a person in bed holding their head.

Step Three: Be Prepared

  • Students should bring 3 clean face masks each day.
  • Caregivers should stay in their car for student drop-off and pick-ups.
  • Caregivers and visitors will have limited access to the buildings for essential visits only.

Reporting an absence is important. Even if it is a Distance Learning day, it is important to report student absences to your school’s attendance office.
