At brightwheel, we understand the importance of maintaining a safe and healthy environment for students and staff members. The Health Screen option at check-in was designed to help schools both meet new regulations due to COVID-19 and help to provide concrete measures to maintain a healthy space for the communities you serve. The Check-in Health Screening can be used in conjunction with brightwheel's Check-in Kiosk and Quick Scan features to minimize the touching of communal surfaces.

Enable Health Screen

Administrators can enable the Health Screen feature from the Check-in Settings on the brightwheel mobile app. By enabling this option, parents will be required to fill out a health questionnaire at check-in.

  1. From the Administrator Home screen, tap School Profile
  2. Under School Settings, tap Check-in Settings
  3. Toggle on the Health Screen option (this works with any other setting you have enabled)
  4. Tap Save

Checking in with Health Screen

Once the Health Screen option is enabled, a new screen will appear while the parent completes the check-in. This screening asks the parent to confirm three simple statements by checkboxes:

  • No fever
  • No cough or shortness of breath
  • No contact with COVID-19 in the last 14 days

If the parent failed to check all of the boxes, they will be presented with the following message: 'Please discuss your health screen with your provider to confirm it's okay to check in.'

Health Screen in Student Feed

When students are checked in with the Health Screen, their check-in record will display on the student's feed as it always has. The answers to the screening questions will appear above any note added to the record.
