CAK's administration has the discretion to adjust the plans at any time. CAK is constantly evaluating best practices and making a decision based on the latest guidance of our government, health care officials, as well as data such as our absentee rate, the number of active COVID-19 cases in our community, and whether or not we have had any positive COVID-19 cases at CAK itself.
LEVEL 1 - NO TO MINIMAL CASES IN OUR SCHOOL OR COMMUNITY
Under this scenario, we would operate as we normally have in the past. As always, classrooms have hand sanitizer and students are encouraged to use it.
LEVEL 2 - MINIMAL TO MODERATE CASES IN OUR SCHOOL OR COMMUNITY
Social distancing measures - Maintain 6’ of social distancing whenever possible. Employ measures to limit the congregation of students upon entry/dismissal, at lunch, at recess, and at other times. Floors may be marked with social distancing stickers in high traffic areas, and we will have entry and exit doors. Class changes are permitted, but masks must be worn during class change. Desks in classrooms will be properly social distanced, fabric sofas and other materials that cannot be easily disinfected will be removed.
Arrival - Masks are required at arrival and dismissal times. Measures will be put into place to discourage the congregation and encourage social distancing.
Lunch - There will be no self-service lines, SAGE staff will directly serve students, and many items will be pre-wrapped for easy grab and go. We will take action to create smaller groups for socially distancing purposes. These groups will look different for each grade-level.
Mask Policy - For students in 1st grade and up, masks are required when social distancing is not possible (in the hallways, arrival and dismissal, etc). For students in preschool to pre-1st grade, masks are strongly recommended for times when proper social distancing cannot be achieved. We recommend a gaiter-style of mask for easy up and easy down. The mask policy is subject to state and local health and government guidelines.
PE / Recess - We will rotate PE/recess through in smaller groups to allow for social distancing. Students will not be required to dress out. No contact activities in PE. Students will wash hands before and after PE / recess. Playground and gym equipment will be sanitized.
Music - Still allowable with social distancing measures (masks required, humming instead of singing as warranted)
Extracurriculars - Allowable under principal discretion
Athletics - CAK’s athletics will follow the TSSAA guidelines
Campus Visitors - Guests will be limited and must be approved by administration. Visitors must pass a COVID-19 screening and wear a mask when social distancing is not possible.
Additional Cleaning - An additional professional custodian will be on staff during the day to clean high-touch surfaces. We will also employ an additional deep cleaning.
Chapel - Chapel will be virtual when social distancing is not possible.
Field Trips - No off-campus field trips allowed
Water Fountains - Water fountains will be closed. Students are encouraged to bring water bottles, and we will have refilling stations available.
CAK Special Events - Follow KCHD guidelines
LEVEL 3 - MODERATE TO SUBSTANTIAL CASES IN OUR SCHOOL OR COMMUNITY
The level 3 plan at CAK will follow the same measures as the level 2 plan with the following differences:
At-risk students/employees - CAK will seek to work with individual teachers, students, and staff on a case by case basis and accommodate as appropriate to ensure progress continues
CAK Special Events - Continue to follow KCHD guidelines
Guests/visitors - Only essential guests allowed at administration approval
Additional cleaning - Daily deep cleaning of buildings
LEVEL 4 - SUBSTANTIAL CASES IN OUR SCHOOL OR COMMUNITY
Move to CAK’s Distance Learning Plan with the goal of returning to full, on-campus instruction as soon as health authorities determine it is safe to do so. This level can be accomplished at the campus, building, or classroom level.
