    Updated Student COVID-19 Policy

    Western Academy has amended the Student Protcol due to COVID-19. The changes are as follows: Responsibilities of Students and Families: Any other student attending face-to-face instruction in the school that resides in the same home as the student exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms will be sent home and be assigned to Distance Learning. Responsibilities of Principals : The School is required to notify The Florida Department of Health Epidemiology Department if any in-classroom instruction student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19. The School will provide the DOH with the necessary information for contact tracing. The DOH will work with the School to determine whether school or classroom closures are needed. A list will be provided by the school of every student and staff member with whom they have been in close contact (within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes) during the school day. This list will be securely maintained. After the Department of Health has finished the contract tracing investigation, the DOH will notify parents, guardians of students or staff identified as exposed to a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the school. The DOH will provide the school with a list of the exposed students and school staff with the returning date to school. The names of exposed students must not be revealed as prohibited by FERPA. Students identified above shall be sent home for up to 14 days to self-isolate and return to school per the date on the Department of Health letter. If the student or staff member after exposure develops symptoms, he or she should remain home and be tested for COVID-19. If the test is positive, the individual should remain isolated at least 10 days and symptom free, including no fever in the previous 24 hours. If the individual test is negative, they should still self-isolate for 14 days from the last contact with the confirmed case as per the Department of Health. The above changes will go into effective when we return on Monday, November 30, 2020. Western Academy Charter School Administration
