The World Health Organization has declared COVID-19 to be a worldwide pandemic. As outlined in the Health & Safety Statement, the School is implementing substantial processes to help avoid the risk of transmission of COVID on the School’s campus. The safety of the School community depends upon all persons doing their part to ensure safety not just for themselves, but for the entire community.
Summary of our COVID-19 Protocols. These are subject to change during the school year:
- Masks will be required temporarily for all members of our school community (faculty and staff, students, and parents), vendors, volunteers, and visitors while inside all school facilities during the school day.
- Masks will be required regardless of vaccination status.
- Those with a documented medical condition that prevents them from wearing a mask can request an exemption to be approved by administration. An alternative face covering (i.e. shield) may be required.
- We are committed to on-campus learning in 2021-2022 and will not be offering a remote learning option for students.
- If a student becomes ill with COVID-19, that student will be given assignments and support from teachers just as any student who has an extended illness.
- If an entire grade is quarantined due to COVID-19 exposure, then teachers will arrange remote instruction for the entire class.
- We will continue to follow the Florida Department of Health and OSHA guidelines regarding contact tracing and quarantine if there is a COVID-19 exposure on campus.
- Per these guidelines, those who have been vaccinated must show proof of vaccination to remain on campus during a quarantine situation.
- We will no longer require temperature checks.
- Parents, family members, and special guests will be invited for events on campus.
Current sanitation/disinfection protocols will continue. Fogging will be done periodically when needed.
