Student SafeAccess Screening

All students who are returning to McAuliffe for in-person learning must complete a SafeAccess screening prior to entering the building. Parents and guardians can refer to this at-home symptom screening guide for reference.

This screening can be done at home (student must provide proof of screening) or they will be screened prior to entering the building.

The SafeAcess code can be found here. Students/families can also scan the QR code to access the SafeAccess screening. This QR code is specific to McAuliffe students.
