Delays or Cancellations
**In the event of a school cancellation, we may call a remote learning day. Teachers will prepare the students before leaving school for the possibility based on the weather forecast by sending home materials and having the students take home needed books and supplies. Teachers will also communicate via the various platforms they are already using such as Google Classroom, Class Dojo, Gradelink, etc.
Guidelines for Health and Safety
The following is information regarding the steps we are taking to try to minimize the potential impact of the Corona virus.
At this time, per our school board’s decision, we will not be requiring masks, but, of course, parents may choose to have their children wear masks. We will continue with distancing where needed such as in the lunchroom. We will follow other protocols as appropriate such as daily disinfecting of classrooms. We will continue not to use the water fountains, so students will need to have water bottles. We will continue to emphasize hand washing and the use of hand sanitizer. Guidelines are subject to change as the need arises. Procedures may be adjusted as necessary as we continue to monitor the health of our school. We will continue our approach of being responsible while being reasonable.
We will follow three basic guidelines:
- Social Distancing when possible.
- Hand washing and sanitizing.
- Cleaning high-touch surfaces.
We will focus on these three areas in the following ways:
We ask that you self-assess your child before coming to school. If your child shows symptoms of being sick (fever, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.), please keep your child home.
Students with a temperature of 100 degrees or higher will not be allowed to stay at school.
Students will order lunch in their homeroom. Lunch orders, heats, and colds will be collected from the homerooms.
The drinking fountains will be off limits. Each student must have his own water bottle. Teachers will take their class to the kitchen for filling and refilling water bottles at the large sinks. The teacher should turn on the water and allow the student to hold his/her bottle for filling.
Students may not share supplies.
Students may have assigned seats in classes, the lunch room, and the auditorium.
Regular handwashing and hand sanitizing will be observed.
Classes will stay in their cohort as much as possible.
Students are not required to wear masks at this time. Parents may choose to have their children wear masks.
We will follow the usual carline procedures.
Frequent cleaning of high-contact areas will be done throughout the school day. At the end of the day, teachers will wipe down all contact areas.
PROTOCOLS TO DEAL WITH EXPOSURE TO COVID-19
If a student becomes sick while at school, he/she will be immediately isolated and supervised in the side room of the church nursery near the church office. The student will remain there until a parent or other caretaker can come to take the student home.
If a student or staff member tests positive for Covid-19, the Fayette County Health Department will contact us and will direct us as to who will need to be quarantined or isolated and for how long.
In the event of the quarantine of a student, cohort (class), or entire school, distance learning will be used to maintain the learning process.
