Responding to COVID-19: Returning to Campus
After deliberate, ongoing consideration of public health data, evolving school reopening guidelines, and leading indicators, Ivy Preparatory Academy has decided to delay reopening for Hybrid Learning on March 1st. At this time, we have also delayed the return of our staff to the building. Currently, the data indicates that in Fulton and DeKalb counties we are at a Substantial Spread (above 100 cases per 100,000).
Our declaration of Intent Survey went out to parents at the beginning of January. All declarations were to be submitted by January 22, 2021. Families who chose to transition to hybrid learning will be notified by email of their scholar's schedule when we have reached below substantial spread and select a day for return. Families that did not complete the Declaration of Intent by the deadline, will automatically remain in our virtual option.
Pending staff, space, and other considerations, there may be a second opportunity for families to opt in to hybrid learning.
The following information serves as Ivy Preparatory Academy's guide to re-entry as we transition to a hybrid learning model. The information is intended to assist families with understanding the procedures, protocols, and practices Ivy has established as we strive to maintain a safe, clean learning environment in our building during this global pandemic. Additionally, the guide outlines important resources available to all of our scholars and families regardless of their choice of learning.
In preparation for a return to face-to-face learning, our facilities, operations, and instructional teams have thoroughly researched and carefully implemented numerous preventive measures and made many modifications, all designed to protect our scholars and staff. With the safety and wellbeing of our Ivy community at the top of our minds, we encourage all of our families to closely read this guidance.
At the same time, we also strongly advise each of our families to take precautions and do your part at home to keep everyone safe. In your daily lives, remember to wear a mask, socially distance from others, wash your hands frequently, stay home when you or a family member is ill, and, as much as possible, limit contact with those persons outside of your household.
Ivy Prep is committed to constantly and consistently doing all we can to preserve the health of our school family. Ultimately, however, the well-being of our community is as strong as the members who comprise it. We must all be vigilant for the sake of everyone, yet flexible for bumps that may be on the road ahead. We are depending on each other! Let's work together to keep everyone healthy and safe.
Individuals must wear a mask/face covering except when eating or drinking. Masks may be distributed if the scholar loses their mask while at school. Don't leave home without it! Parents, please speak with your scholars about the importance of keeping their masks on while at school.
Individuals exhibiting any symptoms of illness are not permitted on campus. Scholars will be screened before they get out of their parent's vehicle for any symptoms of sickness and temperatures. Click HERE for indications on when you should keep your scholar at home.
Temperature checks will be conducted daily for everyone entering Ivy Preparatory Academy. Individuals with a temperature over 99.5 are not permitted into Ivy Preparatory Academy. Medication may not be given to reduce or mask a fever.
