On a weekly basis, we will be randomly selecting 20% of scholars to take a saliva based spit test for COVID-19. Scholars must have parent consent on file to be included in the testing. Staff who are not fully vaccinated will be tested weekly.
Upon arrival each day scholars will have their temperature taken and be visually screened for symptoms of COVID-19. We ask that parents keep their scholars home from school if they are displaying any symptoms of COVID-19. All staff and visitors must complete an online health screen prior to entering the building.
Some of our older scholars are currently eligible for vaccination, and the CDC is expected to expand access to the vaccine for younger scholars in the coming months. As access to the vaccine expands, we will help provide access to any scholars and families who wish to get vaccinated. At this time, vaccination is not mandatory for scholars, but we will continue to follow the guidance of local authorities.
