Mandatory Screening Parent Information

Dear Clarkstown Parent and Guardians, 

Each day that your child will be on a CCSD bus and/or in a school building, the New York State Department of Health is requiring a daily check of their temperature and a wellness screening.  A sample of the questions can be found on our website.  

To facilitate the screening process, CCSD is employing Share911 Wellness, a simple to use mobile app that enables you to quickly confirm that your child doesn’t have a fever or other COVID-19 symptoms. Please watch this short (less than 2 minute) video for more details. https://help.share911.com/helpdesk/attachments/19064290081

To access the Share 911 Wellness app, follow these steps: 

  • Download the free Share911 Mobile app from the Apple Store or Google Play
  • Once downloaded, enter your email address (the email address should be the same one that CCSD used to send you this email).
  •  After entering your email you will be prompted to complete your Share911 account. 

Allowing notifications for this app, will enable Share911 to remind you to complete the wellness screening each day.  If your child does not complete the screening on a school day, the school nurse will contact you. Your child cannot attend school until the screening is completed. 

If you do not have a smartphone, you can complete your child’s screening on the Share911 website, www.share911.com or by using the screening form and send it to school with your child if there are no positive responses on a screening day. 

Daily Wellness Screening is a core component in our multi-layer strategy to keep your children and our CCSD community healthy and our school open. This is a process based on the honor system and we ask your commitment to fulfilling this requirement.  The wearing of face coverings, maintaining social distance and handwashing and sanitizing are other practices put in place throughout our schools.
