Student Health and Wellbeing
COVID-19 in Florida
Our preschool and summer camp are open and available for families this summer. The K-12 school will resume in person classes on August 17th for the 2020-2021 school year. We are following CDC and our local health department guidance, and have instituted a number of new procedures throughout the school. We are taking student and staff temperatures twice per day. We are escorting students to their rooms, reducing parent traffic in the school. Our class sizes are small. We have extra cleaning happening throughout the day and are having students wash their hands regularly. Teachers and camp counselors are wearing masks. For more information, please speak with the school principal.
Private School Health Requirements
Health Assessment School Physicals
As required by Florida law, all students up to the age of nine must have on file a completed health assessment (physical) form. The assessment may be completed by a physician. Exemptions under this policy may be obtained by a written statement signed by one parent/guardian that the student is adherent of a religious denomination whose teachings are opposed to such assessments.
Immunization requirements and recommendations for the school year are based on the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendations and the consensus of the Governor’s Child Health Advisory Committee Immunization Workgroup.
Medication must be administered by designated school personnel. The parent or guardian must provide the medication in its original bottle accompanied by a current signed Request For Administration Of Medication form.
Students who are ill should never be sent to school. Students with temperatures at or above 100 degrees will be sent home. They must be fever free and symptom for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication before returning to class.
