    NO-TOUCH THERMOMETER CONCERNS ARE UNFOUNDED

    PAM IRWIN

    THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2020

    I have been contacted by several people expressing concerns about the temperature checking methods used by USD 240. These concerns seem to be based on a video circulating via social media from a gentleman who bases his information off of an “Australian Nurse’s” social media post.

    Your concerns are not taken lightly, however, we know that the No-Touch digital thermometers we use are safe. No-Touch digital thermometers are deemed safe by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). The thermometers do not emit any form of radiation. They in fact measure the heat or infrared radiation coming from or being emitted by the body.

    The thermometers we selected were are used in many districts around the state. They are not referred to as “temperature guns”; but rather, no-touch digital
    thermometers. The no-touch capability was an important factor as it eliminates the possible transfer of bacteria and viruses.

    Quick fact checks from the Associated Press and the United Kingdom’s Full Fact support the information above:

    • https://apnews.com/afs:Content:9121703294

    • https://fullfact.org/health/infrared-thermometers-do-not-affect-pineal-gland/

    We will continue our research in everything that we are using regarding new safety procedures in place in each of our buildings.

    As always, USD 240 thanks you for your inquiries and concerns. We hope this helps!

  • FREE Breakfast and Lunch!

    ALL USD 240 Students - Food Service Announcement:

     

    The USDA made an announcement this week stating schools could provide a free breakfast and lunch to ALL students regardless of their status from now until December 31, or when the state/federal funding runs out.  We have applied for the waiver and have been approved to begin providing this service to all students starting September 4.  No lunch accounts will be charged until this funding source is no longer available. 

     

    We will not reimburse lunch account funds at this time as those dollars will be used once this program is over.  

     

    Because of other funding programs, we still request you complete the free/reduced application form and submit to your school as soon as possible.  These reports assist in funding Title and At-Risk services and add additional dollars to our schools.

     

    Free/Reduced Application Here

     

    Have a great day!

    Superintendent
