We will keep you apprised of any changes we can implement to summer programs as a result of current and future CDC and state mandates. During the summer, students in Kindergarten and up will be required to wear masks while indoors but may unmask outdoors if they maintain distance away from others.
DAILY HEALTH SCREENING PROCESS
To help prevent an outbreak of COVID-19 in our community, it is extremely important that campers displaying signs of illness remain at home and not be permitted on campus. Parents are urged to monitor for symptoms daily, including taking their child(ren)’s temperature prior to departing for camp.
- Everyone will be screened for symptoms of illness before entering the buildings.
- Screening will take place at carline or various entry points to the buildings.
Parents will be asked, “Are you answering yes to any of the health screening questions?”
Health screening questions
In the past 24 hours:
- Is anyone living in your household being tested for Covid or waiting for test results?
- Has your child complained of a loss of taste or smell?
- Has your child had a fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue muscle or body aches, headache, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea?
- Has your child been given medication to reduce a fever or suppress a cough?
In the past 48 hours:
- Has your child been in close contact with any individual who has tested positive for Covid-19?
In the past 10 days:
- Has your child traveled internationally? CDC’s International Travel Guidelines
A yes response will warrant further inquiry. Also, health screeners will make a visual inspection, and if necessary, will do a temperature screening.
- Face coverings will not be worn by or placed on campers enrolled in the TOTal Connections Camp (18 – 38 months).
- Face coverings are recommended for campers ages 3 - 4 while indoors.
- Face coverings are required for campers Kindergarten and older campers while indoors.
- Parents who leave their vehicles must wear masks.
- All staff will wear face coverings while indoors.
- Individuals are not required to wear face coverings if they have a documented health condition that prevents them from wearing a face covering.
The CDC recommends physical distancing as an effective means of reducing exposure and slowing the transmission of contagious diseases. Practicing physical distancing helps protect everyone.
All individuals on campus will be required to observe the following physical distancing protocols wherever possible:
- Maintain at least a 3-foot distance between yourself and others.
- Avoid shaking hands and close physical contact with others.
- Do not share water bottles, food, towels, utensils, etc.
The school has conducted a thorough review of its spaces, including all classrooms and communal spaces, to confirm physical distancing can be maintained in accommodating campers. We are fortunate to be a small school with large spaces.
