I would like for my child to meet with the counselor. What is her contact information?
We understand every child has been affected differently due to COVID-19. Our counselor is available to meet with students on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please contact Mrs. Davis (email@example.com) directly.
If multiple families carpool together should those families wear face coverings?
Yes, our encouragement would be for carpooling families to wear face coverings while in the close quarters of vehicles. In addition, if feasible, we would suggest keeping the windows down as well to increase airflow.
Is Cornerstone offering synchronous, asynchronous or digital learning if we do not feel comfortable sending our child to school?
No. We have neither the staff nor the resources to offer a consistent quality product for our families. In the event a child is in quarantine at home we will offer synchronous learning. If a class is in quarantine, we will flip to digital learning. In addition, we know the best instruction is live instruction.
What happens if a child gets sick at school?
Students will be isolated in a supervised setting until a parent arrives.
Will parents be notified if there is a positive case in the school?
Yes, every close contact of a positive case will be notified promptly according to the health department guidelines. School wide communication will not occur unless there is community spread.
What would constitute a class switching to digital learning vs. a grade level or an entire division?
This decision will be determined in accordance with the health department guidelines.
Will my child be counted absent if required to quarantine?
All absences due to COVID-19 will be excused.
Hypothetically, if my son’s third grade class is in quarantine, will his siblings be required to quarantine as well?
In this scenario, the school will host synchronous learning for siblings if desired.
What happens if a teacher is ill due to COVID-19 and unable to teach digitally?
Instruction will be provided by the school as appropriate to the grade level and subject.
What happens if a student is ill due to COVID-19 and unable to participate in synchronous or digital learning?
Students will follow the absence policy in the family handbook.
Will the school have to close for deep cleaning if a student/staff case is identified?
The depth of the cleaning will be dependent upon whether community spread has occurred as identified by the health department. As mentioned earlier, we do have fogger technology which will help quickly disinfect spaces.
Will my child need to quarantine if we are awaiting Covid test results exclusively for travel purposes?
