Please Continue to Complete MyMedBot Each Morning!

 Dear MERSD Community,

Our priority goal for the year is maintaining in-person learning and minimizing risk to the health and safety of all in attendance. In addition to masking and cleaning protocols, our mitigation plan has three components targeted at minimizing the risk of COVID being spread at school: daily health screening via MyMedBot, testing for students who show symptoms of COVID-19 at school, and test and stay monitoring for students who may have been identified as in-school close contacts but are not showing symptoms.   



MyMedBot

PLEASE complete the app at home each morning before you leave the house

  • Each day you will be prompted to complete a very brief survey prior to sending your child(ren) to school. This should take less than a minute. We strongly encourage you to set a routine for yourself. PLEASE complete the app at home at least 30 minutes prior to your child’s school start time.
  • If you do not complete the survey, you will receive a reminder prompt.
  • All parent/caregiver emails on file will be linked to each student account, allowing any parent/caregiver to complete the survey. If the survey has been completed on one device, it will reflect in the app for all family members.
  • If you have multiple children to report, they will all be linked in your account and will display together on your conclusion window.
  • If you are told to stay home, please contact your school nurse by phone for further instructions. 

MyMedBot is FERPA compliant and only the pass/fail results will go to the school nurses for review.  None of your responses will be saved.  You can read more about the app's security measures here (https://www.mymedbot.lu/data-security).



In addition to our mitigation efforts, vaccination is a critical component of our safety plan.  I ask that you please vaccinate your eligible children to help us keep our staff and students safe at school. 

Thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,

Pamela Beaudoin
Superintendent

Two Hour Delay January 3rd & My MedBot

 Good Afternoon MERSD Community, 

I am reaching out to ask for your assistance in keeping our schools safe for students and faculty.  Currently, Massachusetts is experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases, and during the holiday season, people will be traveling and gathering with family and friends more frequently which could increase spread.  As a preventative measure, MERSD is asking all faculty, staff, and families to complete a MyMedBot survey on Monday, January 3rd.   You will receive an alert on your app and an email reminding you to complete the survey. 

To allow our nursing team to proactively review the data and consult with faculty, staff, and families who have not cleared the MedBot screener, we will have a two-hour delayed start on Monday, January 3rd.  If you need assistance with MedBot please reach out to our nursing team.  They are a great resource if you have any COVID related questions.

Our priority goal for the year remains maintaining in-person learning and minimizing risk to the health and safety of all in attendance.  Our current plan keeps all COVID mitigation efforts in place throughout January.  We will continue to monitor the latest trends and advisories, and alert you should there be any need for changes.  To help us meet our goal, I ask for your assistance in continuing to be diligent in using COVID precautions (masking and distancing) over the break.

Thank you for your cooperation, and I hope you have an enjoyable and safe holiday break.  

Happy Holidays!

Pam
