COVID-19 Health plan
During this time our goal is to keep the kids safe and in school. We will need your help in order for this school year to be successful. Please be diligent in monitoring symptoms, and reporting exposures to our school office.
We ask for your participation in daily monitoring your child for signs of Covid-19 please keep your child home if they are experiencing any of these symptoms. Per the CDC these are common symptoms:
Fever or chills (a temp equal to or greater than 100.4)
Cough (persistent and new cough that is unrelated to allergies/ asthma)
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
Headache (unrelated to migraines, allergies, or other underlying conditions)
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
Your child may return to school once symptom free (without fever reducing medication) for 72 hours, or symptom free for 24 hours and a negative Covid-19 test.
Students who have seasonal allergies or other long-term conditions similar to COVID symptoms should have a note to that effect on file in the nurse’s office. This may include anxiety or other mental health issues that present with physical symptoms. Notes explaining the condition and common physical symptoms can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your child presents with one of these symptoms and illness is suspected we will have your child mask, if they are not already, and separate them from others until you are able to pick your child up. Please do so as soon as possible but no later than 90 min.
If your child has had a known exposure, we ask you to notify our office and for you to follow the CDC recommendations of quarantining them for 14 days. We feel this is the number one way we can prevent the spread of Covid in our school and keep children safe in the classroom.
Tips for preventing the spread of COVID and other contagious illnesses:
· Each child should have their own water bottle
· Bring a spare mask to school if your child is required to wear a mask
· Wash and sanitize non-disposable masks after one day’s use
· Review and practice proper hand washing techniques with your child
· Wash/sanitize lunch boxes, backpack and other clothing items on a regular basis
· Keep your child’s immunizations current and up to date
If you have any questions, please contact the CFS nurses at email@example.com.

Dear CFS Families,
This morning county and city officials issued a “Stay at Home” order: https://www.como.gov/CMS/pressreleases/view.php?id=6656&tbiframe=1, beginning March 25 through April 24. This order will require CFS to extend its remote instruction program at least through April 24th. We will plan to return to on-sight instruction at CFS on April 27th, however, we are aware this date is subject to change given much of the data regarding the spread of COVID-19.
We hope our first few days of remote instruction were helpful, and you have responded to the survey sent to you at the end of last week. Your survey responses will help us make necessary adjustments in the quality, quantity, appropriateness, and delivery of your child’s instruction to give them the best learning experience possible under these circumstances. We will resume remote instruction beginning this Monday, March 30th.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school office by leaving a message on our phone or by email. God’s people have many times distinguished themselves the best during the most difficult times, so let us continue to remember Paul’s exhortation in Thessalonians 5:16-18, “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
Yours in Christ,
Christian Fellowship Families,
Thank you for your prayers and flexibility during this transitional time. As you know, we’ve made some big strides in educational technology over that last few weeks in preparation for Online Instruction. One of the great things about our tightly-knit community, is our ability to support each other.
Comcast and ATT have agreed to help those affected by school closures with ISP. With our kids spending more time online, we also want to make sure to offer security solutions that will protect your home network and devices. OpenDNS has always offered free access to their Home DNS filter that removes access to websites based on their ratings.
If your family could use a hand with home technology, I’ve designed this Home Technology Checklist that will help let me know what kind of help you need.
