COVID PROCEDURES

District Safe Reopening Plan

 

Highlights:

  • Masks will be required for all individuals on campus. Students with health issues that would preclude them from wearing a face covering may appeal to the district office. The alternative to face masking is a face shield with tuck in cloth bottom. Mask mandates are also applicable to school bus service.

  • Campus visitation will be limited through the duration of the COVID surge.

  • Liberty will follow and implement all district, state, and federal policies.

School-wide Procedures

  • Temperature Checks: Liberty is in the process of attempting to purchase handheld thermometers for each homeroom class to expedite temperature taking. Until those purchases are complete, students will have temperatures taken at checkpoints upon arrival (while exiting the bus, at A building breezeway, & Carpool waiting area. All students must pass through temperature checkpoints each day. Once enough thermometers are acquired, temperature checks will be moved to each homeroom class.

  • Social Distancing: All efforts have been made to adhere to CDC recommended guidelines for student spacing of at least 3 square feet. Teachers and staff will continue to utilize technology resources to incorporate collaborative learning opportunities for on-campus students. Students are expected to maintain social distancing throughout the day. During common times, students are encouraged to socialize and enjoy the company of friends, but should keep personal boundary spaces of 3 feet. This includes, breakfast, class breaks, and lunch.

  • After School Activities: All students and staff engaging in after school activities, INCLUDING ATHLETICS, are expected to continue to adhere to the mask mandate while on campus. Exemptions to masking expectations extend only to students who are actively engaged in physical activity (weightlifting, running, etc.). Athletes not actively engaged must wear their masks indoors. All coaches and staff should maintain masking throughout practice. Students must be masked until they leave campus.

 

Contact Tracing Protocols

If a student on campus tests positive:

  • The student will be required to isolate off campus for a period of 10 consecutive days after the diagnosis and until released by a physician.

  • Contact tracing will be conducted for "close contacts" for the 48 hours prior to the confirmed positive test.

  • Parents of close contacts will be notified by the school nurse with additional information sent home in the Close Contact Letter

  • All families on campus will receive a notification of each positive case on campus. Unless a family is specifically contacted by the school nurse, a school-wide notification requires no action or quarantine.
     

Who is a close contact and what is the quarantine criteria?

  • By definition, a "close contact" is a student who has been within 3 feet of a confirmed case for 15 minutes or more.

  • Close contacts are required to quarantine for a total of 10 consecutive days from their last exposure. Students will be provided an approved return date to school.

  • Students who stay properly masked and maintain 3 feet of distance will not be considered close contacts for required quarantine.

  • Students who are fully vaccinated (starting 2 weeks after their last dose of the vaccine) are not required to quarantine, even if they meet the close contact criteria.

    • We encourage all students to become fully vaccinated to reduce the potential of required quarantine throughout the year.
