Attached please find a letter from Dr. Cheeseman concerning plans and preparation for the Coronavirus situation. Understand that the situation is changing rapidly and we will make you aware of any changes that may affect our school as soon as they become available.
I am in communication with local authorities and staying current on recent developments. As with all emergency situations, we will follow the lead of Fairfield Public Schools, the Diocese of Bridgeport, and state authorities when it comes to closures, delays, or dismissals. At this time, our teachers are preparing for the possibility of school closures for an extended period of time. In the event that Assumption is required to close, we will use our existing platforms of Google Classroom, Clever/Edmentum, online textbooks and resources to continue the educational growth of our students through a closure. Students will be provided with Clever badges and instructions on how to access required materials. Teachers are reviewing these practices with students should they be needed. If your child does not have access to reliable technology or internet at home, please notify the office as soon as possible so that other plans can be made. Hard copy packets will also be available in all PreK classes and other grades as needed.
Precautions are being taken at school to insure a safe environment for our students. In addition to daily cleaning and sanitizing of common areas of the building, teachers have been asked to encourage hand washing, not just after using the bathroom, but before and after eating and throughout the day. Frequently touched surfaces in the classrooms are being cleaned throughout the day and we are taking advantage of the warmer weather to get outside. There is no way to ensure that students and staff will not get sick, but we are taking action to minimize the risk of spreading any illness.
Please help keep everyone safe by monitoring your child's health. If your child feels sick or has a fever, please keep them home and see a doctor. Notify the school of any absence and medical diagnosis so that we can track the spread of any illness. The protocol for students with fevers is to remain out of school until the child is fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medications. Continue to take standard steps such as frequent hand washing and limiting contact with others and we can all minimize the risks of illness.
