Daily Guidelines for Health and Safety

GENERAL INFORMATION

This sheet gives you information regarding the steps we are taking to try to minimize the potential impact of the Corona virus. Procedures may be adjusted as necessary as we continue to monitor the health of our school. We will continue our approach of being responsible while being reasonable.

Dr. Manning, the Chief of Staff at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital gives these four primary factors (in order of importance) for helping schools have a safe and healthy environment.

Masking
Distancing (6 feet apart is optimal, but some distance is better than no distance.)
Hand washing and sanitizing.
Cleaning high-touch surfaces.
We will focus on these four areas and will be following these basic guidelines:

ARRIVAL

We ask that you self-assess your child before coming to school. If your child shows symptoms of being sick (fever, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.), please keep your child home.

Students will have their temperature checked prior to exiting their vehicle.

Students with a temperature of 100 degrees or higher will not be allowed to stay at school.

Students with a normal temperature will enter the building and proceed to their homeroom.

Students will order lunch in their homeroom. Lunch orders, heats, and colds will be collected from the homerooms.

ROUTINES

The drinking fountains will be off limits. Each student must have his own water bottle. Teachers will take their class to the kitchen for filling and refilling water bottles at the large sinks. The teacher should turn on the water and allow the student to hold his/her bottle for filling.

Students may not share supplies.

Students will have assigned seats in classes, the lunch room, and the auditorium.

Regular handwashing and hand sanitizing will be observed.

Classes will stay in their cohort as much as possible.

MASKS

Students will wear masks when they enter the building; when they move individually or as a group from their class room to another location (restroom, lunch, chapel, music, etc.); when adequate distancing is not possible; and when they are waiting in carline at the end of the day.

Students will not need to wear masks while at lunch, recess, or P.E.

When students are quietly reading or working, masks may not be necessary. When students are working on collaborative assignments or other close activities, students will need to wear masks.

DEPARTURE

We will follow the usual carline procedures. Students will need to wear their masks until they get into their vehicles.

CUSTODIAL

Frequent cleaning of high-contact areas will be done throughout the school day. At the end of the day, teachers will wipe down all contact areas.

PROTOCOLS TO DEAL WITH EXPOSURE TO COVID-19

If a student becomes sick while at school, he/she will be immediately isolated and supervised in the side room of the church nursery near the church office. The student will remain there until a parent or other caretaker can come to take the student home.

If a student or staff member tests positive for Covid-19, the Fayette County Health Department will contact us and will direct us as to who will need to be quarantined or isolated and for how long.

In the event of the quarantine of a student, cohort (class), or entire school, distance learning will be used to maintain the learning process.

 

Fayette Christian School is set on providing the children of our community and surrounding area with an exceptional educational experience that will prepare them for life and give them an opportunity to grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ.
