COVID-19 Mitigation Strategies

 
Please review the practices Community Prep has in place in accordance with CDC and state guidelines. 
 
Effective as of August 25, 2021
The most important thing we can do to protect ourselves and our families is to get the vaccine as soon as it is available for our age group. Our staff is 100% vaccinated. Many of our 7th and 8th graders are vaccinated. The vaccine is currently in trials for students under 12; it is our hope that will be available to students in grades 4-6 in the coming months.
Everyone will wear a mask indoors regardless of their vaccination status. This is a measure we are taking to protect students who are not yet eligible for the vaccine. Masking is not required when students are outside unless they are playing a contact sport like soccer, basketball, or football.
  • Individuals are required to quarantine for 7 days from the last day they were in contact with the infected individual if they get a negative test result on day 5 or later. Continue to watch for symptoms through day 14. 
  • If an individual chooses to not be tested, they must quarantine for 10 days. Continue to watch for symptoms through day 14.
 
Exemptions
  • Individuals who are fully vaccinated do not need to quarantine. Closely monitor for symptoms for 14 days.
  • Individuals who have tested positive for Covid in the last 90 days do not need to quarantine. Closely monitor for symptoms for 14 days. 
 
Our classrooms contain air filtration units that gives us the recommended 5-7 air exchanges per hour. Each classroom has fresh air intake from the outside and vents back outside. There is no air exchange between classrooms. Each class is also equipped with air conditioning units. The air quality at CP puts us head and
shoulders above most schools in the state.
We practice physical distancing of 3 ft between students in the classrooms, hallways, and bathrooms. We maintain 6 ft between stable groups.
Until further notice, students will not be able to mix with students from other homerooms. We maintain a distance of 6ft between stable groups (in the outdoor classroom, on the field, etc.).
We sanitize our hands any time we enter a new space. We wash or sanitize hands before meals and after recess.
We have a custodian on-site full time to routinely sanitize high touch surfaces, restrooms, and bubblers (available for water bottle filling only-the fountain is not on).
Students eat outside when weather permits. We encourage teachers to take students outside for class activities and breaks throughout the day.
We have a full-time nurse on-site as well as an isolation room. If a student presents even one symptom at any point during the school day, they will be isolated and tested with a Binax Now test and sent home for further testing.
While you do not have to complete a daily attestation form􀄾 we ask you to continue to screen for symptoms before sending your child(ren) to school each day. 
 
Stay home if you are sick!
 
Reach out to our school nurse if you have questions about symptoms and whether your child should be tested:
