Health Protocols

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has outlined the need for all communities to implement a social distancing protocol.  We want to reiterate a request to our broader community to take the following reasonable precautions to prevent the spread of the illness: 

  • Don’t shake hands 
  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Limit movement within the community, especially avoiding crowded placed and maintaining 3 to 6 ft of distance between people (at least an arm’s length) 
  • If you are moving around in the community, don’t congregate in large groups 
  • For those who have traveled to areas with known COVID-19 cases – both inside and outside of the country – we ask that you self-quarantine and monitor for symptoms. Students who have traveled should plan to stay home for two weeks after arriving home. 
  • If you suspect you have symptoms of COVID-19, call your health care provider for medical advice
  • Keep your child at home if he/she feels ill, even if you think it is just a cold. 
  • Do not leave the house if you are ill, except to access medical care
