  •    External student appointments for medical or legal needs, are being addressed on a case by case basis, per our policies.
  •    Daily screening for symptoms of all students and all staff.
  •    All new students are screened for symptoms to ensure they are healthy at the time of admission.
  •    Large groups and external activities for all students have been canceled.
  •    Special events, such as church visits, fundraising events, and conferences have all been canceled, postponed, or moved to an online environment.
  •    Posted information and provided each facility with CDC-approved cleaning and sanitation products.
