Health and Safety

Enterprise SDA Christian School

Communicable Disease School Management Plan

 

This document outlines the steps necessary to implement the reduction of a virus outbreak on our campus and maintain, to the greatest extent possible, the health of students and staff.  In order for on-site learning to take place certain precautions must be observed, processes put in place, cleaning protocols followed, and all school personnel properly educated and trained.

 

Our mission to provide a Christ-centered academic experience for Christian families in Enterprise is best fulfilled when teachers and students come together on campus and in classrooms. However, until the COVID-19 pandemic has abated, an open school building requires special precautions and protocols to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our students, faculty, and staff. We have developed these protocols in close coordination with local, regional, and state officials.

It is our intention to open the school building when conditions permit. For the safety of our students and staff, and depending on conditions and guidance from coordinating agencies, we may also need to resort to a distance learning model.

Because Enterprise Seventh-day Adventist Christian School is a small school with only two classrooms, the number of students is very small and students can be kept in their cohorts, limiting contact.

Thank you for your patience and your prayers as we persevere through this unprecedented challenge.

 

 

Enterprise SDA Christian School’s designated Safety Officer is: 

Dona Dunbar, Principal/Head Teacher who is to be responsible for implementation of health and safety protocols.

 

The Safety Officer is responsible to:  

1.Ensure that daily records, including contact tracing information, are kept of all who come and go throughout the school day.  These logs must be maintained for a minimum of 4 weeks after completion of in-person/on-site instruction.

2.Maintain a student contact tracing plan, which must include student name, family and emergency contact information, drop off/pick time and adults responsible for both drop/off/pick-up and all staff that interact with each group of students.

3.Ensure health and safety precautions are followed.

 

Enterprise SDA Christian School Emergency Preparedness Plan – Response to Outbreak

1.Document any observed case of elevated temperature or other symptoms of COVID-19. 

2.Report any cluster of illness (2 or more people with similar illness in the same cohort) to Oregon State Health Authority (Dr. Dean Sidelinger, )and follow any instructions received from them.

3.Report any confirmed case of COVID-19 to the State Health Authority.

4.Communicate potential or confirmed COVID-19 cases to the school community and other stakeholders.

5.If a positive case is confirmed, notify local superintendent, Erika Pinkerton (Cell/Office (541)426-3812).

6.Pending instructions from the OHA:

  • Discourage extracurricular activities and gatherings of staff, students and their families, both private and public.

7.Collaborate with the OHA to determine the need for and/or length of a cohort or whole-school closure.

Staff & Teacher Preparation Prior to Resuming Instruction 

  • Follow ODE guidelines in communicating this plan to families and constituents.
  • Post signs on how to stop the spread of COVID-19, properly wash hands, promote everyday protective measures, and wear a face covering as needed. 

·       Ensure that instructional spaces have at least 35 square feet per person, including teaching staff.

·       Establish routines for effective sanitizing of all high-touch surface areas throughout the day (e.g. desks, doorknobs, light switches, toilets, faucets, etc).  

·       In the elementary school, each teacher will establish a plan to perform or supervise a routine cleaning of touchpoints at various points during the day, along with a plan for teachers or custodians to conduct a daily wipe-down of all touchpoints with disinfectant.  

  • Staff will be instructed on:
    • Proper use, removal, and washing of face masks/shields.
    • Avoiding touching the face or face covering as much as possible.
    • Washing or sanitizing hands every day upon entry to the school day.
    • Washing hands frequently during the school day, especially before/after meals, playground usage, and between cohorts.

Staff & Teacher Responsibilities Upon Resuming Instruction 

  • Provide “​Coronavirus (COVID-19) Fact Sheet” ​to all adult guardians with children participating in limited instruction. 
  • Conduct a visual health screening of all staff, students, and visitors upon arrival, following county and CDC guidelines to monitor for symptoms.
    • Maintain a thermometer on hand in case temperature needs to be monitored.
    •  Symptoms of COVID-19 include cough, fever, chills, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting.
    • If a student or staff member has symptoms they will be required to return home.
    • Visitors with symptoms will not be allowed to remain on campus. (Temperature must not be greater than 100 degrees).

  • In assessing work, limit paper exchange as much as possible by providing immediate verbal feedback and response instead.
  • Limit sharing of school supplies, books, electronic devices, etc. unless properly washed/sanitized between uses or adequate time is given between uses (more than 72 hours).   

Cleaning Procedures

Enterprise SDA Christian School will be cleaned at least daily according to the following CDC-aligned protocols to minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19.  Cleaning frequency will be increased for frequently touched surfaces or areas used by more than one cohort.

Step 1: Clean

  • Wear disposable gloves to clean and disinfect.
    • Additional personal protective equipment (PPE) may be required based on the cleaning/disinfectant products used and whether there is a risk of splash.
  • Clean surfaces daily using soap and water, then use disinfectant. Some products may accomplish the cleaning and disinfecting process in one step.
  • More frequent cleaning and disinfecting may be required based on level of use. High touch surfaces include:  Tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, learning areas, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, sinks, etc.
  • Note: Some surfaces may only need to be cleaned with soap and water. For example, surfaces and objects that are not frequently touched should be cleaned and do not require additional disinfecting. Additionally, disinfectants should typically not be applied on items used by children, especially any items that children might put in their mouths. Check the label of all products to verify their safe use around children.

Step 2: Disinfect

  • Recommend use of EPA-registered household disinfectant.
  • Follow the instructions on the label to ensure safe and effective use of the product.
    Many products recommend:
    • Keeping surface wet for a period of time (consult product label).
    • Follow precautions such as wearing gloves and making sure you have good ventilation during use of the product.
  • Diluted household bleach solutions may also be used if appropriate for the surface.
    • Check the label to see if your bleach is intended for disinfection, and ensure the product is not past its expiration date. Some bleaches, such as those designed for safe use on colored clothing or for whitening may not be suitable for disinfection.
    • Unexpired household bleach will be effective against coronaviruses when properly diluted.
      Follow manufacturer’s instructions for application and proper ventilation. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser.
      Leave solution on the surface for at least 1 minute.

 

  • To make a bleach solution, mix:
    • 5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water
      OR
    • 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water
  • Bleach solutions will be effective for disinfection up to 24 hours.
  • Alcohol solutions with at least 60% alcohol may also be used.

Safety, Cleaning, and Disinfecting Supplies

  • Principal will ensure that employees are provided with masks and gloves to accomplish periodic cleaning and disinfecting activities.
  • Principal will ensure that soap, hand sanitizer, tissues, paper towels and no-touch trash cans are readily available for student and staff use.  
  • Principal will ensure that cleaning and disinfecting supplies are readily available to accomplish periodic cleaning and disinfecting activities.

Soft Surfaces 

  • Any items that are difficult to clean, such as non-essential furniture, toys, etc. that are difficult to sanitize will be removed.
  • For soft surfaces such as carpeted floor and rugs:
    • Clean using soap and water or with cleaners appropriate for use on these surfaces.
    • Launder items (if possible) according to the manufacturer’s instructions.  Use the warmest appropriate water setting and dry items completely.
      OR
    • Disinfect with an EPA-registered household disinfectant.

  • For electronics, such as tablets, touch screens, and keyboards follow manufacturer’s instruction for cleaning and disinfecting.
  • If no guidance, use alcohol-based wipes or sprays containing at least 60% alcohol.

Playground Equipment/Outdoor Areas

  • Outdoor areas, such as playgrounds generally require normal routine cleaning, but do not require disinfection.
  • Recess times for the two classroom cohorts will be staggered for use of one cohort at a time.  Clean all structures/equipment between use by different cohorts.
  • High touch surfaces made of plastic or metal, such as grab bars and railings, should be cleaned routinely.
  • Cleaning and disinfection of wooden surfaces (play structures, benches, tables) or groundcovers (mulch, sand) is not recommended.
  • Items that are shared such as bats, balls, hoola hoops or any other game-specific toy or implement are to be sanitized between cohorts.  
  • Students should wash their hands after use of shared items. 
  • Keep playground closed to the general public until park, playground equipment, and benches reopen in the community. 
  • Sidewalks and roads should not be disinfected.

P.E.

  • Person-to-person contact sports or activities will be avoided. All equipment will be sanitized.

Common-Use Areas

  • Hand sanitizer stations must be located at each entry point. Hand sanitizer should be at least 60% alcohol. 
  • Principal will disable or block all drinking fountains. 

STEAM/Art Supplies

  • Principal, in collaboration with teachers, will ensure adequate supplies to minimize sharing of high touch materials to the extent possible (art supplies, lab equipment, etc.) or limit use of supplies and equipment by one group of children at a time and clean and disinfect between use. 
  • Classroom items such as art supplies, manipulatives, maker space areas, books, etc., will be limited and will need to be cleaned after each child’s use. If a child uses items, they will deposit them into a used item container for cleaning after school. 

School Assemblies

  • Once a week both classrooms will meet for chapel outside on the field with appropriate social distancing of 6ft.

                                    

Student Pick-up/Drop-off

  • Child pick-up and drop-off will incorporate social distancing between parents and staff members.  
  • Students enter building on the side entrances, directly into their own classroom.
  • Drop off area will be supervised to ensure students are adhering to distancing guidelines.  
  • Upon arrival, staff members will conduct a health screening of all students prior to their entering the school building or, after school has begun. 
  • Logs of health screening will be kept for a minimum of 4 weeks. 

 

Maintaining Health & Safety during Student Transitions

  • For the health and safety of those in the school, visitors to the building and classrooms shall be limited to those with essential business.
  • Areas are to be sanitized between arrival and dismissal of different cohort groups.  Records will be kept of who cleaned, time, and a checklist of areas cleaned.  
  • Students will be dismissed one or two at a time so there will be no waiting in line.
  • Times for recess, PE, and cafeteria use are to be staggered with other cohorts to reduce time in line and minimize mixing of cohorts.
  • Schedule regular restroom breaks coordinated throughout the school to avoid different cohorts from mixing.
  • For classrooms with sinks, rotate students washing hands as needed.
  • Encourage students to wash hands when transitioning between activities, before and after every snack and meal; after coming inside; after sneezing, blowing the nose, or coughing.
  • Ensure that lunchtime is staggered for cohorts and students are seated at tables that are set 6ft apart. 
  • Prohibit the sharing of food or utensils. 
  • Clean and sanitize cafeteria tables between cohorts.

Essential Visitor Responsibilities

                  

  • Ensure that volunteers enter the classrooms through the side doors and stay with the same cohorts.
  • Undergo health screening for symptoms upon every entry into school.
  • Maintain appropriate physical distancing.
  • Wash or sanitize hands upon entry and exit.
  • Wear face covering. 

Staff Member, Student, or Essential Visitor Illness

  • Communicate with families on protocol for self-reporting symptoms of students.
  • Students and staff must remain at home when sick or if they have recently had an illness with a fever or a cough.
  • Before students and staff who have been ill return to school, they must wait at least 10 days after illness onset and/or 72 hours after fever is gone, without use of fever reducing medicine, and other COVID-19 symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, and/or diarrhea) are improving.
  • Individuals who have been exposed to a confirmed or presumptive case of COVID-19 must remain at home and quarantine for 14 days after their last date of exposure before returning to work or school.
  • Students or staff who have a family member in their home that has signs of COVID-19 must stay home. 
  • Students, staff, or visitors will be removed from contact with the rest of the school population and sent home when they come to the school sick or become sick at school. 
  • A room has been designated as a holding area for sick students that are waiting to be picked up.

 

 

All above protocols are subject to change based on new guidelines that may be issued by the Oregon Conference Office of Education, the Oregon Department of Education, the Governor’s Office, and state and local health departments. Schools may need to adjust operations accordingly as changes occur.

OPERATIONAL BLUEPRINT FOR SCHOOL REENTRY 2020-21

Updated 8/4/2020

Under ODE’s Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance, each school[1] has been directed to submit a plan to the district[2] in order to provide on-site and/or hybrid instruction. Districts must submit each school’s plan to the local school board and make the plans available to the public. This form is to be used to document a district’s, school’s or program’s plan to ensure students can return for the 2020-21 school year, in some form, in accordance with Executive Order 20-25(10). Schools must use the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance document as they complete their Operational Blueprint for Reentry. ODE recommends plan development be inclusive of, but not limited to school-based administrators, teachers and school staff, health and nursing staff, association leadership, nutrition services, transportation services, tribal consultation,[3] parents and others for purposes of providing expertise, developing broad understanding of the health protocols and carrying out plan implementation.

Description: ""

  1. Public Health Protocols

 

1a. COMMUNICABLE DISEASE MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR COVID-19

OHA/ODE Requirements

Hybrid/Onsite Plan

Implement measures to limit the spreads of COVID-19 within the school setting.

Enterprise SDA Christian School has taken measures to limit the spread of COVID-19 within the school setting. (refer to the Communicable Disease Management Plan)

 

The school has updated written Communicable Disease Management Plan to specifically address the prevention of the spread of COVID-19.

 

The school has designated a person at each school to establish, implement and enforce physical distancing requirements, consistent with the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance and other guidance from OHA. (refer to the Communicable Disease Management Plan).

 

 

Update written Communicable Disease Management Plan to specifically address the prevention of the spread of COVID-19.

Designate a person at each school to establish, implement and enforce physical distancing requirements, consistent with the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance and other guidance from OHA.

Include names of the LPHA staff, school nurses, and other medical experts who provided support and resources to the district/school policies and plans. Review relevant local, state, and national evidence to inform plan.

Process and procedures established to train all staff in sections 1 - 3 of the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance. Consider conducting the training virtually, or, if in-person, ensure physical distancing is maintained to the maximum extent possible.

Protocol to notify the local public health authority (LPHA Directory by County) of any confirmed COVID-19 cases among students or staff. 

Plans for systematic disinfection of classrooms, offices, bathrooms and activity areas.

Process to report to the LPHA any cluster of any illness among staff or students.

Protocol to cooperate with the LPHA recommendations and provide all logs and information in a timely manner.

Protocol for screening students and staff for symptoms (see section 1f of the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance).

Protocol to isolate any ill or exposed persons from physical contact with others.

Protocol for communicating potential COVID-19 cases to the school community and other stakeholders (see section 1e of the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance).

Create a system for maintaining daily logs for each student/cohort for the purposes of contact tracing. This system needs to be made in consultation with a school/district nurse or an LPHA official.

·       If a student(s) is part of a stable cohort (a group of students that are consistently in contact with each other or in multiple cohort groups) that conform to the requirements of cohorting (see section 1d of the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance), the daily log may be maintained for the cohort. 

·       If a student(s) is not part of a stable cohort, then an individual student log must be maintained. 

Required components of individual daily student/cohort logs include:

·       Child’s name

·       Drop off/pick up time

·       Parent/guardian name and emergency contact information

·       All staff (including itinerant staff, substitutes, and guest teachers) names and phone numbers who interact with a stable cohort or individual student

Protocol to record/keep daily logs to be used for contact tracing for a minimum of four weeks to assist the LPHA as needed.

Process to ensure that the school reports to and consults with the LPHA regarding cleaning and possible classroom or program closure if anyone who has entered school is diagnosed with COVID-19.

Protocol to respond to potential outbreaks (see section 3 of the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance).

 

1b. HIGH-RISK POPULATIONS

OHA/ODE Requirements

Hybrid/Onsite Plan

Serve students in high-risk population(s) whether learning is happening through On-Site, Hybrid (partially On-Site and partially Comprehensive Distance Learning models), or Comprehensive Distance Learning models.

The school does not serve any high-risk populations.

 

The school has a staff of 2 and does not have a school nurse. 

Medically Fragile, Complex and Nursing-Dependent Student Requirements

All districts must account for students who have health conditions that require additional nursing services. Oregon law (ORS 336.201) defines three levels of severity related to required nursing services: 

1.      Medically Complex: Are students who may have an unstable health condition and who may require daily professional nursing services.

2.      Medically Fragile: Are students who may have a life-threatening health condition and who may require immediate professional nursing services.

3.      Nursing-Dependent: Are students who have an unstable or life-threatening health condition and who require daily, direct, and continuous professional nursing services.

Staff and school administrators, in partnership with school nurses, or other school health providers, should work with interdisciplinary teams to address individual student needs. The school registered nurse (RN) is responsible for nursing care provided to individual students as outlined in ODE guidance and state law:

·       Communicate with parents and health care providers to determine return to school status and current needs of the student. 

·       Coordinate and update other health services the student may be receiving in addition to nursing services. This may include speech language pathology, occupational therapy, physical therapy, as well as behavioral and mental health services. 

·       Modify Health Management Plans, Care Plans, IEPs, or 504 or other student-level medical plans, as indicated, to address current health care considerations.                

·       The RN practicing in the school setting should be supported to remain up to date on current guidelines and access professional support such as evidence-based resources from the Oregon School Nurses Association.

·       Service provision should consider health and safety as well as legal standards.

·       Work with an interdisciplinary team to meet requirements of ADA and FAPE.

·       High-risk individuals may meet criteria for exclusion during a local health crisis. 

·       Refer to updated state and national guidance and resources such as: 

  • U.S. Department of Education Supplemental Fact Sheet: Addressing the Risk of COVID-19 in Preschool, Elementaryand Secondary Schools While Serving Children with Disabilities from March 21, 2020.
  • ODE guidance updates for Special Education. Example from March 11, 2020. 
  • OAR 581-015-2000 Special Education, requires districts to provide ‘school health services and school nurse services’ as part of the ‘related services’ in order ‘to assist a child with a disability to benefit from special education.’ 
  • OAR 333-019-0010 Public Health: Investigation and Control of Diseases: General Powers and Responsibilities, outlines authority and responsibilities for school exclusion.

 

1c. PHYSICAL DISTANCING

OHA/ODE Requirements

Hybrid/Onsite Plan

Establish a minimum of 35 square feet per person when determining room capacity. Calculate only with usable classroom space, understanding that desks and room set-up will require use of all space in the calculation.

A minimum of 35 square ft per person has been established.

 

The larger classroom can hold 14 students and the smaller classroom can hold 12 students. 

 

Physical distancing will be maintained in each classroom.

 

Marking for social distancing is unnecessary because of small class sizes. Students will be dismissed to use restrooms, get drinks, and wash hands at intervals. 

 

Classroom one and two will have a staggered schedule for PE, recess, and lunch. 

Support physical distancing in all daily activities and instruction, maintaining at least six feet between individuals to the maximum extent possible. 

Minimize time standing in lines and take steps to ensure that six feet of distance between students is maintained, including marking spacing on floor, one-way traffic flow in constrained spaces, etc.

Schedule modifications to limit the number of students in the building (e.g., rotating groups by days or location, staggered schedules to avoid hallway crowding and gathering).

Plan for students who will need additional support in learning how to maintain physical distancing requirements. Provide instruction; don’t employ punitive discipline.

 

1d. COHORTING

OHA/ODE Requirements

Hybrid/Onsite Plan

Where feasible, establish stable cohorts: groups should be no larger than can be accommodated by the space available to provide 35 square feet per person, including staff.

·       The smaller the cohort, the less risk of spreading disease. As cohort groups increase in size, the risk of spreading disease increases.

The school has established two cohorts of 12 students or less. 

 

The school will maintain contract tracing logs.

 

Classroom one and two will have a staggered schedule for PE, recess, and lunch.

 

Staff will insure that cleaning and wiping  of surfaces is maintained between multiple student uses.

 

Cohorts are established by grade level and heterogeneous. 

 

The two staff we have remain with their cohorts all day. After any interaction they will sanitize.

Each school must have a system for daily logs to ensure contract tracing among the cohort (see section 1a of the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance).

Minimize interaction between students in different stable cohorts (e.g., access to restrooms, activities, common areas). Provide access to All Gender/Gender Neutral restrooms.

Cleaning and wiping surfaces (e.g., desks, door handles, etc.) must be maintained between multiple student uses, even in the same cohort.

Design cohorts such that all students (including those protected under ADA and IDEA) maintain access to general education, grade level learning standards, and peers.

Staff who interact with multiple stable cohorts must wash/sanitize their hands between interactions with different stable cohorts.

 

 

1e. PUBLIC HEALTH COMMUNICATION

OHA/ODE Requirements

Hybrid/Onsite Plan

Develop a letter or communication to staff to be shared at the start of on-site instruction and at periodic intervals explaining infection control measures that are being implemented to prevent spread of disease. 

·       Consider sharing school protocols themselves.

There are only two staff members and they collaborate on the Communicable Disease School Management Plan. There is no need for a letter. 

 

Protocols are shared with the student’s families through a summary sheet.

 

The safety officer will develop protocols for communicating with anyone who has come into contact with a confirmed case
or when a new case has been confirmed and how the district is responding. 

 

 

 

Develop protocols for communicating with students, families and staff who have come into close contact with a confirmed case.

·       Consult with your LPHA on what meets the definition of “close contact.”

Develop protocols for communicating immediately with staff, families, and the community when a new case(s) of COVID-19 is diagnosed in students or staff members, including a description of how the school or district is responding.

Provide all information in languages and formats accessible to the school community.

 

1f. ENTRY AND SCREENING

OHA/ODE Requirements

Hybrid/Onsite Plan

Direct students and staff to stay home if they, or anyone in their homes or community living spaces, have COVID-19 symptomsor if anyone in their home or community living spaces has COVID-19.

COVID-19 symptoms are as follows:

·       Primary symptoms of concern: cough, fever or chills, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing.

·       Note that muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, nasal congestion, and runny nose are also symptoms often associated with COVID-19. More information about COVID-19 symptoms is available from CDC.

·       In addition to COVID-19 symptoms, students should be excluded from school for signs of other infectious diseases, per existing school policy and protocols. See pages 9-12 of OHA/ODE Communicable Disease Guidance.

·       Emergency signs that require immediate medical attention:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • New confusion or inability to awaken
  • Bluish lips or face

1i. ISOLATION MEASURES

OHA/ODE Requirements

Hybrid/Onsite Plan

Protocols for surveillance COVID-19 testing of students and staff, as well as exclusion and isolation protocols for sick students and staff whether identified at the time of bus pick-up, arrival to school, or at any time during the school day.

All students who become ill at school with excludable symptoms will remain at school supervised by staff until parents can pick them up in the designated isolation area. 

Daily logs must be maintained containing the following: 

Name of student sent home for illness, cause of  illness, time of onset, as per designated communicable disease surveillance logs.

Staff or students with suspected COVID-19 cannot remain at school and should return only after their symptoms resolve, and they are physically ready to return to school. In no case can they return before: 

  • The passage of 14 days after exposure; and 
  • Symptoms have resolved for 72 hours without the use of anti-fever medications. 

 

Protocols for assessment of students, as well as exclusion and isolation protocols for sick students and staff identified at the time of arrival or during the school day.

·       Work with school nurses, health care providers, or other staff with expertise to determine necessary modifications to areas where staff/students will be isolated.

·       Consider required physical arrangements to reduce risk of disease transmission. 

·       Plan for the needs of generally well students who need medication or routine treatment, as well as students who may show signs of illness.

Students and staff who report or develop symptoms must be isolated in a designated isolation area in the school, with adequate space and staff supervision and symptom monitoring by a school nurse, other school-based health care provider or school staff until they are able to go home. Anyone providing supervision and symptom monitoring must wear appropriate face covering or face shields.

·       School nurse and health staff in close contact with symptomatic individuals (less than six feet) should wear a medical-grade face mask. Other Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) may be needed depending on symptoms and care provided. Consult a nurse or health care professional regarding appropriate use of PPE. Any PPE used during care of a symptomatic individual should be properly removed and disposed of prior to exiting the care space, and hands washed after removing PPE. 

·       If able to do so safely, a symptomatic individual should wear a face covering.

·       To reduce fear, anxiety, or shame related to isolation, provide a clear explanation of procedures, including use of PPE and handwashing.

Establish procedures for safely transporting anyone who is sick to their home or to a health care facility.

Staff and students who are ill must stay home from school and must be sent home if they become ill at school, particularly if they have COVID-19 symptoms.

·       Symptomatic staff or students should seek COVID-19 testing from their regular physician or through the local public health authority.

·       If they have a positive COVID-19 viral (PCR) test result, the person should remain home for at least 10 days after illness onset and 72 hours after fever is gone, without use of fever reducing medicine, and other symptoms are improving.

  • Alternatively, a person who had a positive viral test may return to school when they have received two subsequent negative COVID-19 viral tests at least 24 hours apart and 72 hours have passed since fever is gone, without use of fever reducing medicine, and other symptoms are improving.

·       If they have a negative COVID-19 viral test (and if they have multiple tests, all tests are negative), they should remain home until 72 hours after fever is gone, without use of fever reducing medicine, and other symptoms are improving.

·       If they do not undergo COVID-19 testing, the person should remain home until 72 hours after fever is gone, without use of fever reducing medicine, and other symptoms are improving.

Involve school nurses, School Based Health Centers, or staff with related experience (Occupational or Physical Therapists) in development of protocols and assessment of symptoms (where staffing exists).

Record and monitor the students and staff being isolated or sent home for the LPHA review.

 

 

Description: ""

  2. Facilities and School Operations

 

Some activities and areas will have a higher risk for spread (e.g., band, choir, science labs, locker rooms). When engaging in these activities within the school setting, schools will need to consider additional physical distancing or conduct the activities outside (where feasible). Additionally, schools should consider sharing explicit risk statements for higher risk activities (see section 5f of the Ready Schools, Safe Learnersguidance).

 

2a. ENROLLMENT

(Note: Section 2a does not apply to private schools.)

OHA/ODE Requirements 

Hybrid/Onsite Plan

Enroll all students (includes foreign exchange students) following the standard Oregon Department of Education guidelines.

Enrollment:

All students will be enrolled following the Oregon Department of Education guidelines. 

No student will be dropped for non-attendance if they meet the following conditions: 

• Are identified as vulnerable, or otherwise considered to be part of a population vulnerable to infection with COVID-19. 

• Have COVID-19 symptoms for the past 14 days. 

 

Do not disenroll students for non-attendance if they meet the following conditions:

·       Are identified as high-risk, or otherwise considered to be part of a population vulnerable to infection with COVID-19, or

·       Have COVID-19 symptoms for 10 consecutive school days or longer.

Design attendance policies to account for students who do not attend in-person due to student or family health and safety concerns.

 

2b. ATTENDANCE

(Note: Section 2b does not apply to private schools.)

OHA/ODE Requirements

Hybrid/Onsite Plan

On-Site school students: Full-time and part-time students follow normal reporting policy and procedures.

Attendance:

1.      Attendance will be taken daily. 

2.      Attendance policies and plans will encourage staff and students to stay home if someone in their house is sick. 

3.      Teachers will notify the principal when the absence rate has increased by 20% or more. 

4.      Teachers will use the Respiratory Surveillance spreadsheet to document students with respiratory illness. 

 

Full-Time Online and/or Hybrid school students: Full-time students who are enrolled in school and taking online and/or hybrid courses only are reported on an FTE basis using a standard record (ADMProgTypCd = 01) as identified in the Oregon Cumulative Average Daily Membership (ADM) Manual. This is an existing policy previously used in the online setting. As such, there should not be any need to reprogram student information systems to accommodate for this change and the addition of the hybrid setting.

·       Note: Because the students in the online and/or hybrid setting do not regularly attend classes at the district facilities, the standard procedures for recording student days present and days absent cannot be effectively applied to those students. This will reduce accuracy of attendance data for the state while this is in effect.

·       For the purposes of this section, please use the following definition and clarification: Online and/or Hybrid Check-in: The responsibility of taking attendance must be performed by the teacher of record. “Check-ins” with appropriately licensed instructional staff are two-way communications between the student and the teacher. A check-in does not include a student leaving a message on an answering machine or sending an email that does not receive a response from the appropriately licensed instructional staff by the end of the next school day.

·       The student must check-in at least twice a week with their teacher(s) of record on at least two separate weekdays in order to be counted as present for all five days of that week.

·       If the student only checks in once during the week, the student must be counted as absent for half of the scheduled week (2.5 days, if there are five days scheduled in the week). 

·       The student must be counted as absent for the entire week (five days, if there are five days scheduled in the week) if they do not report in at all during the week.

·       Note: If a district schedule is based on a four-day school week, the student would still need to check in twice a week as described above in order to be counted as present for the entire week (four days) and once a week to be counted as present for half of the week (two days).

·       Days in attendance may not be claimed for days in which the student did not have access to appropriately licensed instructional staff. The purpose of the rule regarding checking in with the teacher of record is to assure that the teacher can evaluate whether the student is making adequate progress in the course and the student has additional guaranteed opportunities to engage with a teacher. The responsibility of taking attendance must be performed by the teacher of record, not another staff member (e.g., the registrar or school secretary).

Part-time students receiving online and/or hybrid instruction (not college courses): Students who are not enrolled full-time and are taking online and/or hybrid courses offered by the school district or charter school are reported as large group instruction (program type 4), unless they are an ESD-registered homeschooled or private school student receiving supplemental coursework in public school, which are reported as shared time (program type 9). The district may count up to one hour per day per course taken, provided appropriately licensed teachers for the coursework taken, are available and accessible to the student during regular business hours on each school day to be claimed. Because this is online and/or hybrid instruction, attendance is based on check-ins with the student’s appropriately licensed teacher(s) of record at least two times (on different days) during the school week.

Materials: Avoid sharing of community supplies when possible (e.g., scissors, pencils, etc.). Clean these items frequently. Provide hand sanitizer and tissues for use by students and staff.

Handwashing: Remind students through signage and regular reminders from staff of the utmost importance of hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette. Respiratory etiquette means covering coughs and sneezes with an elbow or a tissue. Tissues should be disposed of and hands washed or sanitized immediately.

·       Wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60-95% alcohol.

 

2g. PLAYGROUNDS, FIELDS, RECESS, BREAKS, AND RESTROOMS

OHA/ODE Requirements

Hybrid/Onsite Plan

Keep school playgrounds closed to the general public until park playground equipment and benches reopen in the community (see Oregon Health Authority’s Specific Guidance for Outdoor Recreation Organizations).

  • Outdoor areas, such as playgrounds generally require normal routine cleaning, but do not require disinfection. 

  • Recess times for the two classroom cohorts will be staggered for use of one cohort at a time. Clean all structures/equipment between use by different cohorts.

Drivers wear face shields or face coverings.

Inform parents/guardians of practical changes to transportation service (i.e., physical distancing at bus stops and while loading/unloading, potential for increased route time due to additional precautions, sanitizing practices, and face coverings).

 

2j. CLEANING, DISINFECTION, AND VENTILATION

OHA/ODE Requirements

Hybrid/Onsite Plan

Clean, sanitize, and disinfect frequently touched surfaces (e.g., playground equipment, door handles, sink handles, drinking fountains, transport vehicles) and shared objects (e.g., toys, games, art supplies) between uses multiple times per day. Maintain clean and disinfected (CDC guidance) environments, including classrooms, cafeteria settings, restrooms, and playgrounds. 

·       Cleaning Procedures 
Enterprise SDA Christian School will be cleaned at least daily according to the following CDC-aligned protocols to minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19. Cleaning frequency will be increased for frequently touched surfaces or areas used by more than one cohort. 


  • Step 1: Clean 
  • • Wear disposable gloves to clean and disinfect. 
  • Additional personal protective equipment (PPE) may be required based on the cleaning/disinfectant products used and whether there is a risk of splash. 
  • • Clean surfaces daily using soap and water, then use disinfectant. Some products may accomplish the cleaning and disinfecting process in one step. 
  • • More frequent cleaning and disinfecting may be required based on level of use. High touch surfaces include: Tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, learning areas, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, sinks, etc. 
  • • Note: Some surfaces may only need to be cleaned with soap and water. For example, 
  • Step 2: Disinfect 
  • surfaces and objects that are not frequently touched should be cleaned and do not require 
  • additional disinfecting. Additionally, disinfectants should typically not be applied on items 
  • used by children, especially any items that children might put in their mouths. Check the 
  • label of all products to verify their safe use around children. 

·       Recommend use of EPA-registered household disinfectant. 


·       Follow the instructions on the label to ensure safe and effective use of the product. 
Many products recommend: 


  • Keeping surface wet for a period of time (consult product label).
o Follow precautions such as wearing gloves and making sure you have good 
  • ventilation during use of the product. 
  • • Diluted household bleach solutions may also be used if appropriate for the surface. 
  • Check the label to see if your bleach is intended for disinfection, and ensure the product is not past its expiration date. Some bleaches, such as those designed for safe use on colored clothing or for whitening may not be suitable for disinfection. 
  • Unexpired household bleach will be effective against coronaviruses when properly diluted. 
  • Follow manufacturer’s instructions for application and proper ventilation. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser.
Leave solution on the surface for at least 1 minute. 
  • • To make a bleach solution, mix: 
  • 5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water OR 
  • 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water 
  • Bleach solutions will be effective for disinfection up to 24 hours. 

  • Alcohol solutions with at least 60% alcohol may also be used. 

  • Safety, Cleaning, and Disinfecting Supplies 
  • Principal will ensure that employees are provided with masks and gloves to accomplish periodic cleaning and disinfecting activities. 

  • Principal will ensure that soap, hand sanitizer, tissues, paper towels and no-touch trash cans are readily available for student and staff use. 

  • Principal will ensure that cleaning and disinfecting supplies are readily available to accomplish periodic cleaning and disinfecting activities. 


 

Apply disinfectants safely and correctly following labeling direction as specified by the manufacturer. Keep these products away from students.

To reduce the risk of asthma, choose disinfectant products on the EPA List N with asthma-safer ingredients (e.g. hydrogen peroxide, citric acid, or lactic acid) and avoid products that mix these with asthma-causing ingredients like peroxyacetic acid, sodium hypochlorite (bleach), or quaternary ammonium compounds.

Operate ventilation systems properly and/or increase circulation of outdoor air as much as possible by opening windows and doors, using fans, and through other methods. Do not use fans if they pose a safety or health risk, such as increasing exposure to pollen/allergies or exacerbating asthma symptoms. For example, do not use fans if doors and windows are closed and the fans are recirculating the classroom air.

Consider the need for increased ventilation in areas where students with special health care needs receive medication or treatments.

Facilities should be cleaned and disinfected at least daily to prevent transmission of the virus from surfaces (see CDC’s guidance on disinfecting public spaces).

Air circulation and filtration are helpful factors in reducing airborne viruses. Consider modification or enhancement of building ventilation where feasible (see CDC’s guidance on ventilation and filtration and American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers’ guidance).
