2021-2022 COVID-19 School Protocols

Update Released 03/2022

The Westview School is currently mask optional. The term optional means that each individual staff member and family will be allowed to make their own choice about masking regardless of vaccination status. This means that some teachers may choose to continue wearing a mask in our classrooms, and some families may choose to have their children continue masking. We will respect and support each individual’s decision regarding wearing a mask. As a school, we will not ask anyone to remove their mask.

Travel quarantine is no longer required for individuals regardless of vaccination status.

Weekly Health Screenings will no longer be required for staff and students upon entry to The Westview School. We ask that families take time to self-screen before starting the school week. If your child is sick, please keep them home.

Temperature checks of staff and students will no longer be required before entering The Westview School.

We thank you for your continued support, confidence, and trust. Together we remain Westview Strong.

 
ON-CAMPUS GATHERINGS

On-campus in-person gatherings and community events may be permitted when it is possible to maintain 6 feet of physical distance. If these conditions cannot be met, the gathering will be held outdoors or virtually.

We know that Covid remains, and will continue to remain, active in our community. While we hope that local numbers continue to decline, we are aware of new variants and remain concerned about the potential for exposure for our students and staff.  

The following protocols will not change at this time: 

HEALTH SCREENINGS

All staff and students will continue to complete the health screener and undergo daily temperature checks upon arrival at school. It continues to be vitally important that ALL members of our community routinely monitor their health and stay home when they are sick. 

CLASSROOM VISITORS

Our classrooms are simply not large enough to safely accommodate large numbers of visitors. As such, visitation will continue to be limited to essential and pre-scheduled visitors, including individuals who have been pre-approved and complete the requisite health screening.   

SANITIZATION

We will continue to clean, disinfect, and fog nightly with hospital-grade disinfectants as a precautionary measure. In addition, every classroom is equipped with an air purifier, hand sanitizer, and other cleaning and disinfecting supplies. 

 

We thank you for your continued support, confidence, and trust. Together we remain Westview Strong.
