Dear CLA Family,
Over the past two years, we have prayed, sought wisdom through wise counsel, and prayed again to wisely navigate through the chaos created by the pandemic. With many of the state mandates being lifted, the recent announcements from many of the health agencies, prayer, and wise counsel we have initiated the following protocols for the 4th Quarter.
COVID POLICIES FOR FOURTH QUARTER – MARCH 2022
QUARANTINE AND CLOSURES:
New COVID cases will be handled on an individual basis. There will not be POD or CLASS CLOSURES.
The only testing that will be required is for students wishing to compete in the BIIF who are not vaccinated.
Preschool (three and four year olds) Protocols are still the same. DHS is in control of these protocols.
PROTOCOLS FOR KINDERGARTEN – 12th GRADE
Parents are to report to the office anytime they are on either campus during the school day. Parents are never to go directly to a classroom to drop off anything for their child. Parents may stop by anytime during the day as long as they keep their access to the office area. Parents should stay in their car when dropping their children off in the morning. On the Lower Campus parents exit their cars at the Rosie “O” to sign their children out after school.
PRESCREENING BEFORE COMING TO SCHOOL
RESPONSIBILITY OF THE PARENTS.
We are again asking parents to do health screening before coming to school. If your child is feeling sick, showing signs of being sick, or is running a temperature please keep them home until all symptoms have subsided for at least 24 hours.
If a student or faculty member contracts COVID they are to follow the recommendations of the Hawaii DOH.
Masks are not required by the school for outdoor or indoor activities (including classes). Masks may be required by the parents for a student to wear during the day. Please keep in mind that the faculty will not be monitoring your individual child for mask wearing.
The school has returned to the standard pre-COVID practices for social distancing.
Students and faculty are requested to follow basic personal hygiene. Washing hands after using the restroom and before eating. We will not require students to sanitize their hands when leaving or entering classrooms. All classrooms and public areas will be cleaned at the end of each school day.
There are no protocols for traveling in or out of the state.
If you have any questions please contact your campus administrator.
In his amazing Grace,
T. I. Rimel
Director of CLA
