Goodwater Coronavirus Updates

Goodwater will use this page to keep parents/guardians and the public updated with the latest school developments related the COVID-19 outbreak

 

Goodwater Montessori staff and the Board of Directors are carefully monitoring all developments regarding the COVID-19 virus. We continue to make decisions under the guidance of the Texas Education Agency and local and state health officials, including daily conference calls with the Commissioner of the Texas Education Agency.


Our academic staff is reviewing and preparing options for remote learning in the event of school closures and/or families who choose to keep their students at home. 


If your student or a member of the student’s household has been instructed to self-quarantine, please communicate this to Goodwater ASAP at: christi.cowden@goodwatermontessori.org.


SCHOOL AND FACILITY PROTECTION:


Strategies in place to help diminish the risk within the school facility will include:


  1. A scheduled deep cleaning and disinfecting of the entire school during Spring Break.  
  2. Instituting increased hygiene practices after the break with the availability of hand sanitizers and increased disinfecting of surfaces multiple times throughout the day.  
  3. Instituting a limit to general office traffic in and out of the school.  Until further notice we will suspend visitors within the school building to include volunteers, parents, observers and others who are not essential to the day to day education of students or operations.  

SPRING BREAK TRAVEL:


Please note, if you are traveling from a high-risk area over the break, CDC guidelines call for social distancing and staying home for 14 days from the time you left an area with ongoing community COVID-19 spread. Here is the link to the Level 3 High-Risk Areas:
