I would like to first reiterate that at SSKCA we are committed to the safety of our students and staff. We are monitoring the news about COVID-19 and working with our local health officials to keep our schools safe. We want to share that we are continuing to take the necessary precautions to prevent the introduction and spread of viruses and other germs, and are cleaning off high-contact areas, such as handrails, towel dispensers, light switches, doorknobs and desks. The status of this situation is extremely fluid, and we are monitoring the progress of this matter thoroughly and consistently.
We encourage parents and students to continue following the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention promoted safeguards, such as washing hands with soap for at least 20 seconds; covering coughs and sneezes and properly disposing of tissues; and avoiding others who are sick and staying home – if ill. Completing daily health checks on Option C before dropping off your child/ren is also mandatory.
We will continue to evaluate our school facilities and health guidelines to ensure the continuity of learning in a healthy and safe school community. It is a monumental task that lacks precedent and challenges our ability to continually adjust and recalibrate to a “New Normal” while grappling with any budgetary shortfalls and economic recovery efforts.
Thanks for your tremendous support and understanding as we venture forward to reinvent our school designs to optimize learning for our students and refocus our professional development to in-person and virtual learning support for our teachers and staff.
Let us continue to work together for the benefit of each child.
