EAGLE'S LANDING CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
HEALTH & SAFETY PROTOCOLS
Although the past couple of years have been challenging, God enabled us to persevere, grow closer as a school family, and learn many valuable lessons. Our leadership team has worked diligently and collaborated with healthcare professionals in developing these protocols.
Given our extensive planning and logistical work during the pandemic, we were well positioned for safe operations. While our students are enjoying an environment more similar to non-pandemic years, we are implementing general health and safety procedures detailed below which are proven to be prudent for the well-being of all students and teachers.
• PreK students may arrive no earlier than 7:30AM and must be scanned in at the North Portico.
• Lower school and middle school students may arrive no earlier than 7:30AM and should go directly to the Eagle Café until dismissal to their first period class at 7:45AM.
• Parents of PreK and lower school students may walk their students to their classroom door.
• High school students may arrive no earlier than 7:30AM and will report directly to the high school commons area until dismissal to their first period class at 7:45AM.
ELCA does not currently have a mask mandate. Masks are optional, but permissible and encouraged. While mask usage is optional and not mandated for staff, teachers, and students during the school day, ELCA will be supportive of individuals who choose to wear a mask. We ask that there be mutual respect within the ELCA community for those who choose to wear or not wear a mask.
Classroom desks are arranged with as much space between each student as possible and will be facing the same direction. Students and faculty are encouraged to respect each individual’s personal space.
The school promotes proper hand hygiene throughout the school day. The school ensures that an adequate supply of hand sanitizer, hand soap, and paper towels is available in all classrooms.
Our maintenance staff will continue to disinfect frequently touched surfaces with EPA approved products. Hand sanitizer is available in all classrooms and throughout the building. Electrostatic sprayers are used to disinfect on a routine basis and for specific areas as needed.
K-12 students eat lunch in the cafeteria. PreK students eat lunch in their respective classrooms. Hand sanitizer is available, and tables are cleaned and disinfected after each use.
As was our normal procedure before the pandemic, students who become ill should remain at home until they are fever free for at least 24 hours. Health and safety mitigation strategies will follow state and/or federal requirements. Should you have any additional health questions, please contact the school nurse.
We are extremely glad to bring our community back on campus, to hold indoor and outdoor activities as we have in the past, and to worship together joyfully and frequently. It is a blessing to re-establish the community feel that makes us ELCA. We plan to gather, love, and rejoice in the fact that we have been created for relationships and celebrate this ideal as often as possible.
God Bless and Go Chargers!
