School Policies: Updated January 28, 2022

Please remember that on February 15th, our Temple Shir Tikvah vaccination requirement takes effect. This requires that everyone ages 5 and up has completed a vaccination protocol for covid-19 in order to attend Learning Corps.

Please send your child wearing an appropriate mask –a KF94/KN95 is highly recommended/preferred, though a well fitting surgical mask is acceptable (cloth masks alone ARE NOT acceptable but may be worn over a surgical mask as a double mask if preferred). Masks will be available for students who do not have an acceptable mask.

Eating will occur outside on all days, with exceptions made only for very inclement weather (in this case students can eat snacks distanced in the cafeteria, or in a distanced area at the temple).

Students will be spaced three feet apart. However, there may be moments where students and staff may be closer than 3’.

People with symptoms of acute respiratory illness (fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea) should stay home and be referred to their healthcare provider for testing and care, regardless of vaccination status. Staying home when sick with COVID-19 is essential to keep COVID-19 infections out of schools and prevent spread to others.

Please continue to notify the temple if your child tests positive for Covid-19.

When to come back: Please follow CDC guidance regarding return to school. In the K-12 school setting, CDC recommends ending isolation based on timing after symptom onset or positive test result (if asymptomatic). For more information, visit Overview of COVID-19 Isolation for K-12 Schools.

Everyone with COVID-19 should stay home and isolate away from other people for at least 5 full days (day 0 is the first day of symptoms or the day of the positive viral test for asymptomatic persons). They should wear a well-fitting mask when around others at home and in public for an additional 5 days. People who have symptoms can end isolation after 5 full days only if they are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and if other symptoms have improved. They should continue to wear a well-fitting mask around others at home and in public for 5 additional days.
