SAFETY GUIDELINES WHILE AT SCHOOL
- While a social distance of six-feet apart is ideal and recommended during the pandemic, state regulatory agencies recognize that it’s developmentally inappropriate for students to practice social distancing at all times. As much as teachers are able, they will help the children maintain a reasonable distance from one another, however play requires interaction and we will not actively discourage this.
- Students will wash their hands before and after every activity, meal and playground time.
- Classes that share common areas (bathroom/ changing areas) are considered “pods.” Only one “pod” will be allowed on each playground at a time.
- Students in our elementary school program are required to wear a facemask. It is strongly recommended that students 3 years of age and older wear a face mask. If parents of children over two years-old would like to send them with a mask they can do so. We will try our best to keep it on them.
SIGNS OF ILLNESS
Our own health has never been so interdependent. We must rely on the decisions of each other to make sure we stay healthy. Any child or staff member who exhibits any of the following will be asked to leave the school immediately:
- Fever (>99.9)
- Body aches
- Sore throat
- Dry cough
- Shortness of breath
- Loss of tastes/ smell
- Vomiting or any GI symptoms in children
We recognize that any of these symptoms, on their own, would be an indication of another non-contagious health issue. A doctor’s note is required for your child to return to school. Your child will only need a COVID-19 test if advised by the doctor. If a doctor recommends a test, your child must stay home until they get their results.
Temperature checks will be done upon entry of the building each morning and randomly throughout the day.
IF SOMEONE TESTS POSITIVE FOR COVID-19
IF SOMEONE TESTS POSITIVE FOR COVID-19 we will immediately alert the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) as well as follow the Decision Tree guidelines provided by the Virginia Department of Health.
If you become aware that a family member of one of your students or coworkers is diagnosed with COVID-19, you must notify an administrator immediately. These persons should be excluded from Redeemer CDC for a period of time determined by VDH.
CLOSURE DUE TO ILLNESS: PAYMENT POLICY
In the event that Redeemer CDC needs to temporarily close its doors entirely, or just a few individual classrooms, due to illness, parents will still be responsible for timely tuition payments in accordance with their signed financial commitment form.
