COVID-19 Policies & Practices
Let’s keep Sequoyah School safe!
Our return to campus will be a process that requires a concerted community-wide effort steeped in trust, honesty, and responsible intentions and actions.
Do not come to campus if you are feeling even mildly sick.
We can do this, together!
The Sequoyah School we all know and love is still at the heart of everything we do.
Sequoyah School faculty and staff have been working diligently to welcome our students back to campus in the safest manner possible. While our return to campus may feel different, the new policies, procedures, requirements, and expectations exist with the best interest of the entire Sequoyah School community in mind.
These protocols safeguard ourselves, protect one another, and ensure that we remain in compliance with city and county mandates so that we can return to and maintain a consistent on-campus environment for our students. Please be aware that protocols may shift as COVID-19 research, data, outcomes, and local/state government mandates change.
Procedures & Expectations
Stay home if you have any of these symptoms:
on the COVID READY app
Prior to arrival on campus, all students and employees must engage in daily online health screenings through the Carbon Health COVID Ready app. See COVID Ready FAQs.
Honest reporting is expected daily prior to arriving on campus including days when you are not on campus.
The Sequoyah School Cohort Model will be most successful if interactions outside of school are also restricted. We expect families and employees to engage in responsible social contact outside of school to help ensure the health and wellness of the Sequoyah community so we can be back together for on-campus learning as soon as is safely possible.
To avoid putting put our community at risk, follow the guidelines put forth by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. Authorities have made clear that the majority of COVID transmissions occur within single households and when households who practice different levels of precaution mix.
Sequoyah School will be a closed campus until further notice. Parents and visitors are not permitted to campus unless there is an essential reason, which will require an appointment and adherence to all on-campus protocols.
Students and employees will be screened in their cars during morning drop off/arrival . Parents and students must remain in the car with masks on as they pass through the screening area.
If anyone scans at or above 100˚F or has symptoms consistent with COVID-19, they will be sent home.
URGENT PICK UP
Parents/guardians are expected to pick up their student immediately for any of the following reasons:
• They have difficulties following on-campus protocols
• They become ill
• They have close contact with an ill or symptomatic individual
DISTANCE LEARNING –
Still an option
Remote learning may continue to be the best option for your students who:
• May be considered in a high-risk health category
• Cannot safely distance from household members in the high-risk category
• May be unable to comply with the on-campus behavioral expectations
Concurrent programming will continue to provide both online and on-campus students with a robust Sequoyah School educational experience.
Everyone is required to wear a mask at all times, except during designated eating schedules.
HAND WASHING & PERSONAL HYGIENE
Everyone on campus is expected to wash their hands regularly throughout the school day. Handwashing and hand-sanitizing stations are in various locations throughout campus.
All students and adults on campus must maintain a physical distance of at least 6 feet from any other individual at all times.
Sequoyah School’s Cohort/Social Connections model limits interactions and therefore reduces exposure. Students must remain in their assigned stable cohort, within assigned spaces on campus during this phase.
Per state and county mandates, a quarantine period is required for any travel outside of the Southern California region regardless of the mode of transportation. Families and employees should plan accordingly and keep the school informed should travel of this nature be scheduled.
