CALVARY CHRISTIAN SCHOOL COVID-19 FALL PROTOCOLS

Calvary Christian School is committed to a safe return to full in-person instruction on August 31, 2020.  We have been monitoring the protocols set forth by the governor and have created a plan that is reasonable and appropriate to stay healthy while returning to academic life as close to normal as possible. To facilitate this objective, we have made the following changes to our school site to assist in our safe return to classes:

 

  1. Face masks– While students and staff will not be required to wear face coverings at all times, all students, staff, and visitors must enter the facility in a face mask and must have that face mask (or other face covering) in their possession at all times while on campus.

*Masks will be used for the duration of any activity that requires close 

  physical proximity or where physical proximity is unavoidable.

*Anyone who wishes to wear a face covering at all times throughout the day

  is welcomed and encouraged to do so.

 

2.  Reducing areas of congestion as much as possible-

          *Staggered entry and exit times to minimize office congestion

                   Grades 1 – 4      7:45 – 8:15am    School begins at 8:15am

                                  2:15 – 2:45pm      School is out at 2:15pm

                   Grades 5 – 12    8:15 – 8:30am         School begins at 8:30am

2:45 – 3:15pm           School is out at 2:45pm

*Middle school and high school will not be utilizing the lockers this year due to minimal space in the hallway.  Students will have personal space in the classroom for backpacks and lunches.

 

*Spaced breaks/recess times 

3.  Disinfecting/cleaning protocols

*Each classroom will be supplied with hand sanitizer and disinfectant for  

  staff and students to use throughout the day as needed.

*Standing hand sanitizing stations will be located in the school office, the

School Age Care classroom, and playground entrances for ease of use  

  when entering/reentering the building.

*Hand sanitizer dispensers will be installed in each of the bathrooms for use

  after hand washing.

*Because drinking fountains present a germ transmission issue, we are  

  installing awater bottle filler on our current drinking fountain for

  students to be able to fill their own reusable bottles as needed.  We ask that

  each student bring one with their name on itevery day. 

          *Each class will have their own playground equipment, and disinfecting

            protocols will be in place for each class for this equipment.

          *Frequently used surfaces will be disinfected by staff throughout the day.

          *Students must have their own supplies on hand at all times, because the

            sharing of materials will not be permitted. 

 

4.  Health and hygieneANYONE experiencing these symptoms may not enter the facility and must be symptom-free for 24 hours before returning to campus:

**Fever 99 degrees or above      **Chills         **Cough         **Fatigue

**Shortness of breath (unrelated to asthma)     **Headache    **Sore Throat

          *Temperatures will be taken (using a touch-free thermometer) for all

persons who enter the facility at any time. 

  1. Anyone with a temperature of 99 degrees or above will not be

permitted to enter the facility.

  1. Students who display any of the above symptoms during the school day will be sent home and must remain home until they are 24 hours symptom-free.

         

          *Proper hand washing will be reviewed and encouraged throughout the day,

            especially before and after lunch and after recess/breaks.

 

5.  Social distancing

          *Student seating and desks will be spread out as much as reasonably

            possible within each classroom.

          *Teachers will implement procedures for submitting homework in a way

  that minimizes contact.

*Extra lunch tables will be utilized in order to spread students out as much  

  as reasonably possible during the lunch break.

          **With the exception of siblings, students are NOT PERMITTED to

              share lunch items

*As previously stated, high school students will not use lockers this year, but

 instead will have a space within their desk area to store backpacks and 

 lunches.

  to use on his/her desk.  They are not required and the school will not be  

  providing them.
