Preventing the spread of COVID-19 at Oak Creek Academy will require the diligence and commitment of every member of the community. We will have a screening procedure in place to help us identify if students or faculty/staff have any symptoms of, or any exposure to, COVID-19. We are asking parents to partner with us in ensuring that our community can remain open – this can be done by screening our students for fever or symptoms prior to sending them to school. And, following our pickup and drop of protocols can help us limit contact and reduce the chances of COVID spreading in our community.
Oak Creek Academy remains profoundly grateful for the unwavering support of our faculty, staff, and families as we continue to work together with a shared commitment and responsibility in keeping our community together and safe.
Faculty are expected at school before 8:00 a.m. They will have performed a self-screening and taken their temperature at home before arriving at school. Students are expected between 7:45 and 8:00 a.m. There will be only one point of entry to the school each morning. We are heavily restricting visitors. Only essential visitors will be allowed on campus. Visitors must wear a suitable mask, answer screening questions, and have their temperature checked. Please review and adhere to our pick-up schedule for your child’s class.
Staff will be stationed at the front doors and at the sidewalk for escorting students to the building. The temperature of every student will be taken before allowing the student into the building. If a temperature exceeds the limit (100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher), the parent will be asked to take their child home. Please view our policy and procedures for returning to class.
Masks covering the mouth and nose are required of every person on campus. Students and faculty are to provide their own masks, but we do have some for purchase at the front desk for $1. We are asking all of our students no matter the age to wear a mask or face shield if they are able. We understand that sensory issues may prevent some from being able to wear them. Our teachers, staff, and therapists will be in masks or shields as well. Guidelines for acceptable masks are listed below.
