COVID-19 Daily Symptoms Survey for student

COVID-19 Daily Symptoms Survey for student

Monitoring the physical symptoms of students and staff on a daily basis has become a common procedure for many schools, one of the many operational adjustments needed to ensure a Covid-safe environment for the school community.

Daily COVID-19 symptoms surveys are a critical safety procedure but demanding on management teams and staff to ensure surveys are completed and that any symptomatic participants are easily identified for separation and/or treatment.

To assist with this Reach Student Life Management has developed a purpose build Surveys module which allows schools to build a custom Covid-19 Daily Symptoms Survey questionnaire for students and staff which can easily screen your school population for symptoms of Coronavirus through self-assessment.

Mandatory self-analysis survey

The daily symptoms survey allows schools to present students (or parents) and staff with a mandatory self-analysis survey. Results obtained in the survey automatically update in real time to a People View dashboard. This dashboard displays your entire school population with their survey status identified. Colour coding of participant profiles in the People View dashboard highlights any at risk participants that respond in the survey as symptomatic.

Automated instructions and alerts

Participants that do identify as symptomatic in their self-analysis can be presented with instructions for any procedures that the school may require them to follow.  In addition, any positive results to symptoms by survey participants can trigger automatic alerts to medical staff or supervisors to highlight people of concern that may require isolating, further testing or other attention.

Edit and update profiles

When operating in the People View dashboard in Reach staff are able to open any individual’s profile to display their daily survey results. Staff are also able to record notes to any individual’s profile or to communicate directly with individual via email or text message from the People View screen. Historic survey records are stored for all users and historic reports can be generated for compliance or monitoring.

Daily Status Pass

Finally, when completing the daily survey participants are provided with a results card on their mobile device which can be used as a confirmation card or visual pass to confirm their daily status at entry or permission checkpoints.

The surveys module can be used as a stand alone module in Reach and is available for all schools. Reach Surveys can integrate with any school system to obtain the survey contacts database.

Location capacity monitor helps to manage physical

Location capacity monitor helps to manage physical

Physical distancing measures for monitoring and managing Covid-safe facilities means the rooms and locations have to be managed with capacity limits.

To assist with this REACH has introduced a new feature for location management called Location Capacity Monitor. This allows you to monitor the number of people at any location in real time and provide you with alerts which are triggered when your locations are reaching or have exceeded capacity.

Real time monitoring

When location capacities are set in REACH real time monitoring of populations at each location is automatic and displayed in your REACH portal as

  • A traffic light display in your header bar, and
  • A population count in the Kiosk location legend

Any location that has a maximum capacity set will then be monitored in real time in REACH automatically.

Kiosk count display

In the locations legend of your Kiosk screen a live count for the number of people at the location will be displayed. When a population warning trigger is activated this will display as a coloured icon beside the location name.

This is only visible when you are in the Kiosk view of your REACH portal and only locations that have a maximum capacity set will display a count.

Capacity traffic light indicator

The Capacity traffic light indicator is visible in the header bar of your REACH portal at all times regardless of the screen that you are using in REACH.

The traffic lights will display the number of locations that are


Sticky Notes at student sign out help you manage you

Sticky Notes at student sign out help you manage you

Sticky Notes is a notification system that that allows you to create important reminder notes for students and/or staff.  They interrupt the sign out procedure to ensure that important notices are acknowledge by students or staff before they are permitted to sign out.

Important due diligence measures are made simple with Sticky Notes, ensuring that if there are important measures than need to be performed before a student departs you can be assured that they will be done.

It might be a medical condition where you need to enure that a student is carrying their medical device or it might be something else important that you need to ensure is done before sign out. Sticky Notes will prevent sign out until the note is acknowledged and it can be locked down to require staff acknowledgement if it is an important duty of care measure for your school.

You can create two types of Sticky notes for sign out in REACH.

1.  Perpetual Sticky Notes

Perpetual Sticky Notes are notes that wil appear every time a student goes to the SISO screen until the expiry date of the Sticky Note.

  • Perpetual Sticky Notes are created from your portal’s header bar.
  • Only staff with accessibility settings set for creating Sticky Notes can create Sticky Notes.
  • Set which student the sticky note is for.
  • Set the display rules for the Sticky Note. (SISO)

2.  Leave item Sticky Notes

Leave item Sticky Notes are created for a specific leave event only and they will display on the sign out to the specific leave event that it is created for.  Leave item Sticky Notes are created in the edit screen of the leave item.
