Administering Student Temperature Screening at Marnebek School

This is an important public health measure to ensure that unwell students remain at home. Students at Marnebek School  will receive a temperature screen every morning before starting school while the stay at home restrictions are in place.  Written consent is NOT required as the process is non-intrusive.

  • Temperature screening will be conducted using non-contact infrared thermometers where
  • Students entering the school via the designated  school gates will be tested at the gate area.
  • Late students will be tested in the school foyer area at New Holland drive campus or at the gate at Corrigan’s Rd campus.
  • All bus students will be tested on arrival in the multi – purpose building at New Holland drive campus.
  • Any staff member who is temperature screening will be required to wear a  face mask and use hand sanitiser as per the DET guide. 
  • During screening, we will ensure that there is appropriate physical distancing between adults.
  • Students who register a temperature of 37.5 degrees or over will need to return home.  It is not suitable for an unwell student to travel home unsupervised so parents and caregivers will be called to come and collect them.

A reminder: Students experiencing compatible symptoms with coronavirus such as fever, cough, or sore throat, runny nose should be remain at home and seek medical advice.

We wish to thank you all for your understanding in ensuring that our students and staff are kept as safe as possible during this pandemic and we will keep you informed of any changes to the guidelines as they become available to us.
