We strongly believe it is imperative that all parties know the facts behind COVID-19 in order to properly combat it. We take this virus seriously in our facility and have developed an entire emergency plan to address many of your concerns as parents. The immense amount of data on this page is not to scare you, but to instead keep you informed on what’s happening, how we are keeping a safe environment, and what your role is as parent(s)/guardian(s).
The disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus is known as coronavirus disease 2019 – or COVID-19.
According to the Johns Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering, as of June 26, 2020, there have been over 10.1 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 502,589 deaths worldwide (3) – but these numbers are still growing steadily (see Figure 4). Globally, the confirmed case fatality rate is above 5 percent – that is, one in every 20 people with a confirmed positive COVID-19 test has died of the disease.
What are we doing?
Our team of specialists have put together the below action plan to mitigate risks for everyone on our premises. The detailed action plan will be provided to each parent/guardian during orientation.
– Sanitation Stations throughout facility
– Contactless drop-off/pick-up
– Mandatory sanitizing of student stations every 2 hours
– Personal Study Stations for each student, measured 6-feet apart
– Personal supplies for each student, each semester
– Masks and face shields made available
– Nightly sanitation of building
– Partnership with commercial cleaning company to disinfect building weekly
– Temperature checks
The above is not an exhaustive list. Our COVID-19 Response Team has done extensive work on creating a controlled action plan to ensure the safety of all present in our classrooms.
What can you do?
In order to ensure the safety of our students, it is imperative that we work together to minimize the risk of spreading germs on the premises. You can help us in many ways:
– Supply your child with extra hand sanitizer for their personal Study Station
– Inform the school immediately if your child has come into contact with anyone with the virus and keep them home for the safety of others
