The Lux School Statement Regarding COVID – 19
We appreciate your patience and support as we work to build, plan and provide an indispensable service to our community. Due to the essential nature of the service we provide, the health and safety of everyone in The Lux Family is our highest priority.
Our school policies are developed based on research and guidance from the CDC, The American Academy of Pediatrics, local and state governments, and the Department of Health and Human Services. We take health and safety seriously. Regardless of the status of the pandemic, we will continue to follow these health and safety precautions and encourage healthy lifestyle practices. We ask that all members of The Lux Family mirror these precautions at all times.
As a standard, all children are required to remain home once determined ill for at least 24 hours or have written physician’s approval to re-enter the childcare setting. In light of the pandemic, we’ve implemented the rule that children and staff stay home from school for 14 days following the last potential exposure, if any member of the household has (or may have) a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19. Parent support through morning health checks before school, prompt response to calls about an ill child, and adherence to our sick and precautionary policies will help us limit the spread of illness.
We will be following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance for child care providers (CDC Childcare and K-12 Guidance) and their Travel Advisory (https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices). Be advised that travel to Level 3 areas by any member of the family will result in a mandatory ban from the school property for 14 days after return. This guidance applies to the entire Lux school family.
As always, we respectfully request that everyone follow social-distancing and safety protocols recommended by public health officials, when in place, including wearing a facial covering while on campus.
