COVID Protocols

The protocols below are how we will start the year. Our focus is to mitigate risk while preserving the educational environment for our students. As cases change in our area, and as we live out this plan within our school community, we anticipate the plan will adjust. We commit to stay in close communication with our families as the plan is updated.

Reduce large groups

  • Daily chapel will be broadcasted live into the classrooms on Mondays and Fridays with smaller groups (K-2, 3-5, middle school) worshiping in the sanctuary during the week. Additional spacing will be allocated between classes.
  • Lunch has been permanently moved to Lee Fellowship Hall.  
  • Internal changes to afternoon carpool procedures have allowed for additional social distancing of students waiting for pickup. 

Restricted mixing of grade levels

  • Opportunities that mix lower school and middle school grades, or multiple lower school grades, have been temporarily suspended.

Limit visitors in our building

  • Parents and visitors will be allowed into the main school building by appointment only and will not be allowed in spaces where children are present. 
  • Afternoon carpool walk up dismissal will temporarily use the side (ADA) entrance.

Absences

  • If your child is absent due to COVID, or any other long-term absence, we will provide  school work for your child and help them catch up, as necessary, when they return. Flex (virtual) learning will not be available this year.

Masks are welcomed, but not required**

  • We are a mask friendly environment – we encourage and support everyone who wants to wear a mask: staff, students and families.
  • We will not tolerate students making negative comments to others who choose to wear or not wear masks.
