Goodwater Montessori Covid-19 Mitigation Plan
CLICK HERE TO READ THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN
Goodwater Montessori School is preparing the school community to welcome all students back when each family feels safe to return. Our ongoing efforts are to provide a quality Montessori experience in a healthy and safe environment while supporting our community through these challenging times.
This Covid-19 Mitigation Plan, while currently following the recommendations of the CDC, the Williamson County Health District and Office of the Governor, is also an evolving document and may change to meet future guidelines from the government and health officials.
Preventing the spread of Covid-19 at Goodwater Montessori will require parents and families to do their parts.
Parents must ensure they do not bring or send a child to school if that child has Covid-19 symptoms; or if their child has been exposed to someone with a confirmed Covid-19 case; or has tested positive for Covid-19. The attending parent must also follow these same protocols to mitigate the spread of the Covid-19 virus to staff members and/or other students.
Prior to bringing or sending a student to the Goodwater Campus for onsite instruction all parents should review and complete the Covid-19 Self Assessment document at home for themselves and with their child. The Covid-19 Self Assessment document will help parents determine if they or their child is safe to attend school. The assessment will include a review of the following Covid-19 related symptoms:
- Temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher when taken by mouth;
- Sore Throat;
- Loss of taste or smell;
- Muscle Pain/Aches;
- New Uncontrolled cough that causes difficulty breathing (or, for students with chronic allergic/asthmatic cough, a change in their cough from baseline);
- Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain; or
- New onset of severe headache, especially with a fever.
Students should remain at home and should report suspected or confirmed cases of Covid-19 to Alma Lahmon, School Programs Coordinator or designee. This includes:
- Symptoms that indicate a possible Covid-19 infection, or
- Close contact within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes cumulatively of a laboratory confirmed or probable Covid-19 infected person (including their parent or others in their household), or
- Laboratory confirmed positive test to Covid-19.
