COVID-19 Safety Policy
As we prepare to return to school for the 2022-2023 school year, we want to make sure that our parents are aware of our current policy concerning COVID-19.
No person will be prevented from wearing a mask as a condition of participation or entry into the school, unless wearing a mask poses a safety hazard or interrupts the education process.
The school will have an adequate supply of masks available.
Staff will continue to teach and reinforce hand washing to lower the risk of spreading the virus.
Handwashing stations will be available (soap/water).
Hand sanitizers will be available in each classroom.
Employees/Students with Symptoms
Employees/Students experiencing symptoms should not return to work/school until symptoms are mild and improving or are due to a non-infectious cause.
It is required that an employee/student be tested using an Antigen test if they have a fever.
Employees/Students Diagnosed with COVID-19
It is required for a COVID-19 positive employee/student to stay home for at least 5 days. They may return to school on day 6 if they have been symptom free for 24 hours.
Employees/Students Exposed to COVID-19
Regardless of vaccination status, if an employee/student has been exposed and remains without symptoms, they may continue to attend work/school.
It is recommended that they wear a well-fitted mask around others for several days and get tested 3-5 days after exposure or if symptoms develop.
As the year progresses we will continue to look at this policy and modify it as needed.
Thank you for your confidence in placing your most valued possessions, your children, in our care for this school year. We do not take the responsibility of doing the right thing for them lightly. If at any time you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to call the school. It is our intention to provide the best education we can, and the best atmosphere to grow in, for your children.
