It has been our intention to return to some form of in-person learning as soon as it was determined by our health departments that it is both safer and feasible to do so. On September 21, during our virtual town hall with county health department officials, we reviewed the current coronavirus data for our community. To this end, our county health agency partners have made the recommendation that it is now appropriate for us to return to a hybrid learning model. Click here to watch the virtual town hall discussion about the data guiding our decisions and current levels in our community. Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. LaunchED student’s schedules will not be impacted by this change.
Cómo usted sabe, nuestra intención ha sido volver a alguna forma de aprendizaje en persona tan pronto cómo nuestros departamentos de salud determinen que es más seguro y factible hacerlo. Anoche, durante nuestra junta virtual con los funcionarios del departamento de salud del condado, revisamos los datos actuales del coronavirus para nuestra comunidad. Con esto, nuestros asociados de las agencias de salud pública del condado han recomendado que ahora es apropiado que regresemos a un modelo de aprendizaje híbrido. Haga clic aquí para ver la discusión de la junta virtual sobre los datos que guían nuestras decisiones y los niveles actuales en nuestra comunidad. Comenzando el lunes 5 de octubre, estaremos implementando un programa de aprendizaje híbrido en persona para todos los estudiantes que no estén inscritos actualmente en el programa LaunchED. Los horarios de estudiantes LaunchED no serán impactados por este cambio.
GUIDELINES FOR KEEPING YOUR STUDENT HOME
“To keep everyone healthy, we ask that you follow the guidelines if your child has any of these conditions.”
The beginning of any infectious illness is usually the time it is most likely to spread to others. This is also the time your student is probably feeling unable to participate in class. In order to keep everyone healthy, we ask that you observe the following guidelines and keep your student home if he/she exhibits any of the following:
Fever, vomiting, or diarrhea: Your student should remain home for 24 hours after symptoms end.
Colds/respiratory viruses: Keep your student home at the beginning of a cold. This is also the time when one if most infectious and least likely to feel well enough to participate in class. When he/she feels better and no longer has a persistent cough, it is permissible to return to school.
Strep Throat: Your student may return to school after taking the antibiotic for 24 hours, they feel better, and are free of symptoms.
Chicken Pox: Your student should stay home until there are no new lesions and all existing lesions have scabbed over.
Pink Eye: Any eye infection must be treated by a physician before the student returns to school. If antibiotic therapy is prescribed, the student must remain home for at least 24 hours after treatment has begun, and they must be free of eye drainage before returning to school.
Open sores on skin: All skin lesions must be covered by a bandage or clothing during the school day. This may include impetigo, ring worm, scabies, and other fungal, bacterial, or viral skin infections.
Generalized skin rash: Any student with an undiagnosed skin rash must be seen by a physician for diagnosis and/or treatment before returning to school with a note from the health care provider.
Head Lice: Your student may return to school only after treatment with lice shampoo.
A student will be sent home from school if he/she has any of the above conditions and/or has a temperature of 100.1 F. or more.
