CFS and COVID-19
March 10, 2020
Dear CFS Families,
Everyone is aware of the COVID-19 or Coronavirus outbreak that is occurring at different places in the world, including parts of the United States. One case of the virus has been reported in St. Louis, Missouri and another in Kansas City, Kansas. Our prayers go out to everyone affected by this virus.
We are following the information and guidance provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our local health department. At this time, all schools are directed to follow basic hygiene practices to prevent infections of any respiratory virus. These preventative measures include:
- Keeping surface areas often used in the school as clean as possible and soap and hand sanitizer containers readily available.
- Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when sick.
- Cough or sneeze into a tissue and place immediately in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
If a case of COVID-19 was discovered to be connected to a CFS student, family, or staff member, we will notify all school parents immediately. We will maintain connection with the local and state health departments and will follow their directives.
In the unlikely event we are unable to maintain standard classroom instruction, we are working on a continuity plan with systems and lessons for implementing video and online student learning. If your home does not have internet capabilities, please contact the school office, so we can consider alternative plans for your student.
Please help to keep our students and staff safe by staying informed, practicing good hygiene, and keeping children home if they are running a fever or are exhibiting signs of a fever. As we approach spring break, families are encouraged to be aware of travel restrictions or high-risk areas. We are already in close communication with our international students from high-risk countries, who will not be returning to their countries of origin during spring or summer break, if COVID-19 concerns continue and if they plan to return to the United States.
Below are some links for more information about COVID-19. As we respond with appropriate cautions regarding this virus, we continue to put our trust in the Lord and join with the Apostle John in praying, “..that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” (III John vs. 3, see also Ps. 91).
Yours in Christ,
