School Entrance Screening

This is how you implement your admissibility policy

The CDC Guidelines State...

Screen Students and staff everyday
before they come on campus.
Exclude from entrance anyone
showing symptoms of Covid-19.

But how will you implement this?

Keeping your school open means keeping Covid out.
Best practices suggest defining a policy for admissibility.
But – practical questions linger.
How will you keep records of who is allowed on campus?
Who keeps track of when self-quarantining ends?
What tools can you provide to a greeter at the school entrance,
to effectively screen students?

High5.ID gives you the tools

to verify that a student meets your admissability requirements - instantaneously.

Where to start

Screening means enforcing a policy of admitting some individuals and refusing access to others.

You alone determine a policy for what makes an individual admissible at your school.
… Proof of vaccination? Proof of immunity? Child of a critical worker?

What about “not” admissible…
… Refused to wear a mask? Admitted into self-quarantine?

Perhaps you’ll use a schedule to reduce class sizes…
… Family names starting with A through N come in on odd weeks?

These decisions are your to make – but they boil down to a yes or no per student:
“Are they admissible in person”.

How High5.ID can help

We provide tools to

* Record your current determination of who is and who is not admissible in person
* Convey this information “live” to a greeter screening individuals at your entrance
* Track scans as they occur, and report as required.

All information “lives in the cloud” and is instantly updated.
There are no installed apps and no synchronizing of databases is required.

Your greeters can be located anywhere they can be online.
As many greeters as you like can be using the system.

No personal health records are stored in the system; we only track “yes” or “no” per individual.

Three options for screening at the entrance

A person greeting students at your entrance
has three ways to match a person with their records:

  1. Looking at live “Admissible ID” presented on the student’s mobile phone
  2. Scanning a traditional student card using a laptop or chromebook
  3. Scanning a traditional student card using the greeter’s mobile device

"Admissible In Person" digital ID

In this option, students use their mobile phones to display digital ID
which reflects their admissibility to campus.

Changes to the database are live & immediate;
if you mark a student as not admissible on an office computer,
the student’s phone will update in their hands.

This is the safest & fastest method:
social distancing is easily maintained,
and your greeter can scan students quickly as they file past.

Scanning traditional ID from a computer

In this option, students present their plastic ID cards to a laptop for scanning.

This option is suitable for schools where students are not allowed to carry a phone.

Any connected device (windows laptop, macbook, chromebook) will do.
No application is installed.

The laptop is presenting a web page that uses the device’s camera
to scan the QR code built into the High5.ID student cards.

“Admissible” or “Caution” results are presented with an accompanying sound cue.

Scanning traditional ID from a mobile device

In this option, students present their plastic ID cards to a mobile device for scanning.

This option is suitable for schools where students are not allowed to carry a phone,
or as a fallback measure for students who do not have their phone with them today.

Any connected mobile device (android, iOS) will do.
No application is installed.

As with the laptop option, the phone is presenting a web page
that uses the device’s camera to scan the QR code built into the High5.ID student cards.
The same feedback is presented.

The difference is that the greeter’s own phone can be used;
this is often more convenient than bringing a laptop outside
as the greeter can simply slip their phone back in their pocket when not being used.
