Covid-19 Policies

 

I know many of you have a lot of concerns about our in-person

classes. I hope that this may answer many of your questions.

  1. As of 8/24/2021, the State of CA & CDC guidelines recommend facial coverings for both vaccinated AND not vaccinated while indoors and required that all schools require facial coverings.

  2. Because our vendors/teachers receive funding from charters, they are required to abide by the policies of the charters they are contracted with. These charters are now requiring them to do what the state of CA schools are requiring in all CA schools. If the vendors/teachers do not abide by their policies, they will get dropped as a vendor & not get paid. This also applies to the families not being able to use their funds for in-person classes that are not abiding by CDC guidelines. Please see #5 for exemptions. 

  3. We understand there are medical & health exemptions for wearing masks, therefore will not be policing this. If you OR your child have an exemption, HEC will honor that & will not question you. We trust that you are able to make these decisions on your own. Please let the teacher/vendor know if your child has an exemption. Visors are also accepted as masks, if your child can wear one. 

  4. There are no plans for HEC to cancel any classes or closedown.

  5. HEC would never require someone to have any vaccine as we feel this is a personal choice & none of our business.

  6. If you or your child have a cough, fever, sore throat, cold or are sick in general, stay home. If your child has allergies, which can look like illness symptoms, please let the teachers know ahead of time so they are aware.

  7. COVID precaution signs are placed on the campus.

  8. Cleaning/Disinfecting

    1. The teacher's will be sanitizing their rooms including tables at the end of each day.

    2. The bathrooms are sanitized at the end of each day.

  9. Hand sanitizer stations are set up in a few different locations on the campus.

  10. Students are encouraged to wash their hands or use hand sanitizer throughout the day while in class. Please bring your own hand sanitizer if you wish your student not to use the sanitizer at HEC.

  11. Classroom doors are opened every hour for ventilation.

  12. Teachers will also be giving students outside stretch breaks outside if their classes are longer than 1 hour.

  13. Outside classrooms may not require facial coverings.

  14. ALL persons on campus will be required to sign COVID waiver. You will not be able to attend classes if this is not done which is done upon registration on the Sawyer registration account when checking out.
