Contact Tracing & Social Distancing
Per state and local health department regulations, students will be considered a close contact when they are within 6 feet of a someone who tests positive for COVID-19 for more than 15 minutes (within a 24-hour period).
- Fully vaccinated close contacts or those who have tested positive for COVID in the last 90 days do not need to quarantine if you remain asymptomatic. They may return to school with verification of vaccination and must follow *enhanced precautions for 10 days. They may continue extra/co curricular activities following *enhanced precautions.
- Unvaccinated individuals who are identified as a close contact must quarantine. Close contacts must stay home for 5 days. If you develop symptoms, continue to stay home and get tested. Students may return to school on Day 6 and must follow *enhanced precautions through Day 10. They can return to extra/co curricular activities on Day 6 following *enhanced precautions through Day 10.
- If you test positive - regardless of vaccination status, students must stay home for 5 days from onset of symptoms OR if asymptomatic, stay home 5 days from date of positive test. If you have a fever, continue to stay home until 24 hours after your fever resolves. If you have no symptoms OR symptoms are resolving after 5 days, students may return to school on Day 6 following *enhanced precautions through Day 10 and may return to extra/co curricular activities on Day 6 following *enhanced precautions through Day 10.
*Enhanced precautions include: masking, frequent hand hygiene, monitoring for symptoms.
The COVID-19 vaccine will NOT be required for students, teachers, and staff.
Remote Learning may take place if any student is required to quarantine due to a positive COVID test or through close contact. We will continue to use Zoom for Remote Learning, as needed.
Cleaning & Sanitizing
Hand sanitizing stations will continue to be available throughout the building. Consistent cleaning will continue throughout the day and will continue to be a part of the end-of-the-classroom routine.
We will continue using our block-4 schedule (A-E days). E Days (a full 8-class day) are in effect for 2021-22.
Lunch will be free for all students once again this year. Student collect their lunch from the cafeteria. Students will eat in an assigned area. Seniors will eat in the cafeteria. Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen will eat in their 3rd or 4th hour class, depending on the day.
All Study Halls will follow the guidelines of a Structured Study Hall. Structured Study Hall is a smaller environment, supervised in a teacher’s classroom. This time is considered the same as any class period with the same behavioral expectations.
Chapel & Koinonia
As guided by our school’s mission, Concordia will continue to exercise the community worship as Christ’s children through weekly chapel and student/faculty/staff Koinonia activities. Chapel and Koinonia will meet on C and D days. We will update our community on the schedule closer to the start of school.
Students will not be able to carry their bookbags to class. All bookbags will need to be stored in student lockers.
Drinking fountains will remain closed, but bottle filling stations will still be available. Students are encouraged to bring water bottles with them to school.
Stairwells will continue to be one directional wherever possible.
We will resume class hallways to assign a student locker for personal and school materials.
