Safety Procedures for Summer Activities

The school will:
  • Meet or exceed all of the local, state and federal guidelines that are applicable to opening under Phase Three for Virginia.
 
Students/Families must:
  • participate fully in our temperature and symptom screening measures 
  • keep a child home if they are sick 
  • wear a mask upon arrival, when in any building (only for bathroom or emergency situations) and upon leaving — and maintain a strict social distance when not wearing a mask
  • cooperate with all of the school’s safety measures
  • notify our school nurse, Suzanne Wineforder (804-672-4956 or suzannewinefordner@trinityes.org), if you or a member of your family becomes ill, and the student will quarantine for 14 days
  • clean cloth face masks regularly
  • engage in frequent hand washing on and off campus as an important step to reduce infection
  • not share personal items
  • pick up your child promptly if they become ill at school (please be sure to include two additional emergency contacts who are able to pick your student up should they become ill)
  • limit parents, siblings, and guests to vehicles and pick up areas to reduce the number of people on campus. Students only are permitted on fields and viewing areas (all buildings remain closed to students and parents).
During prolonged suspension of on-campus activity, there will be remote support available for our faculty, staff, and students. This support will be provided by the Technology Department, and will be handled by priority. The following information will explain how to get software support, how to get hardware support, and how to get all other support. Please know we are committed to providing quick, accessible, and personalized support. Unfortunately we will have limited ability to troubleshoot and support services and equipment not provided by Trinity. This includes third party equipment (laptops, cameras), home internet connection, and Wi-Fi quality.

Preventing Illness

Public health officials recommend the following steps people should take to reduce their risk of getting and spreading any viral respiratory infections. These include:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces.
  • Stay at home and away from others if you are feeling ill.
