Effective Friday,  March 24

Dear ELCA Family,

Governor Kemp announced yesterday that all Georgia K-12 public schools should remain closed through April 24. In an effort to focus on the health and safety of our students and staff, ELCA will also follow these guidelines and continue with our distance learning program through April 24. 

 

Our schedule will be as follows: 

  • March 30-April 3 • Virtual Learning 
  • April 6-10 • Easter Break – no school 
  • April 13-24 • Virtual Learning 
  • April 27 • Campus will reopen 

We sincerely appreciate all those who have responded to our recent survey regarding our virtual learning platform. Our team is meeting today to discuss those results and implement changes for the coming weeks including increased availability of our faculty for Instructional Focus assistance. Please know that your feedback is a critical part of this process as we partner with you in Kingdom Education. 

 

In addition, ELCA Administration is working diligently with SAGE to refund lunch charges. A credit will appear on your April statement for lunches missed while school has been closed. We are also working with each vendor that we've utilized for field trips, educational trips, and mission trips to refund as many of those charges as possible to affected families (parents will be contacted separately regarding refunds as those funds are received by ELCA). We are consistently evaluating all expenses to ensure the most prudent stewardship of resources during these unprecedented times. 

 

Our commitment to your family remains the same in that we desire to offer your student a quality education in a Christian environment. Our goal is to cover all the standards and to fully prepare your student to move on to the next grade level. Our teachers are constantly innovating and evolving with the academic platform and we will continue to add layers of service to your digital learning experience. 

 

Please also know that we appreciate the opportunity to serve your family and our team is praying for you.

When should I keep my child at home?  
 
10 ELCA guidelines for keeping your child home from school.
 
Adapted from Children's Healthcare of Atlanta
 
A guide to making an early morning decision. 
 
1 - FEVER - Children with a fever over 100.0 degrees F should stay at home until there is no fever for 24 hours. If you treat a fever with medicine before school, the fever can return and your child may still be contagious. Call your doctor if your child has a fever with pain, rash, weakness, vomiting, or diarrhea.  
 
2 - DIARRHEA & VOMITING - One event of watery diarrhea or more than one event of vomiting are reasons to keep your child home. If vomiting or diarrhea continues or your child also has a fever, rash, or weakness, call your doctor. 
 
3 - PERSISTENT COUGHING - If your child's cough is worse than you would expect with a cold, keep them at home. If they have a hard time breathing or have a fever, call your doctor. 
 
4 - SORE THROAT - If your child has a sore throat and fever, or a severe sore throat without fever, they should stay home from school. Call your doctor if there is a quick onset of fever and sore throat without cold symptoms. 
 
5 - PINK EYE / CONJUNCTIVITIS - If your child's eye is red with cloudy or yellow drainage, they should stay home until symptoms are gone. Call your doctor for treatment.  
 
6 - PERSISTENT EAR PAIN - Your child should stay at home if they have a lot of ear pain. Call your doctor for treatment. 
 
7 - IMPETIGO - If your child has impetigo (red, oozing blister areas with yellow-gold scabs on the body or face) they should stay home as long as your doctor says. 
 
8 - STOMACH ACHE - If your child complains of a stomach ache, especially if they say it hurts to move and they do not want to eat, they should stay home. Call your doctor.  
 
9 - LICE - If your child has lice, they need to be treated and nits (eggs) removed. They need to stay at home until the school has cleared them to return.    
 
10 - CHICKENPOX - Your child should stay at home until all the bumps are scabbed and no new bumps have shown up in two days. Call your doctor for treatment of symptoms.
