The Coronavirus known as COVID-19, has made it into Northeastern Ohio. We are aware of the concern that many of you have right now regarding its impact in our country and in our own community. We receive daily updates from the Lake County General Health District and we continue to stay informed about the virus through them and the Center for Disease Control.
There are steps that we can take to be proactive in regard to the health and wellness in our school and in our community. Attached is the link to the Ohio Department of Health which provides the latest information regarding COVID-19. Ohio Department of Health
With the concerns of contamination, we have increased our disinfecting of the common areas of the building. This includes bathrooms, sinks, drinking fountains, offices, meeting rooms, etc. We also clean regularly classroom surfaces such as doors, desks, and chairs. We are continually evaluating our process to help contain the spread of germs. We have also increased cleaning of our school vans.
You can also help by reinforcing the importance of proper hand-washing as we will do with all our students. In addition, keeping your children home when they are sick also will help contain the spread of not only COVID-19 but many other viral diseases such as the flu. Keep your child home if they have a fever. In order to return to school, they must be fever free without the use of Tylenol or Ibuprofen for 24 hours.
Providing a safe and healthy learning environment is a priority to us at Re-Education Services and we will continue to stay on top of the information regarding COVID-19 and how it impacts the health and wellness of our school.
