COVID-19 Fast Facts

What is Summit doing to keep our families and staff safe?

-All adults in the building are required to wear masks.

-All adults and children are washing their hands/using hand sanitizer upon entering the building.  

-Parents have the option to request a staff member meet them in the parking lot at pick-up or drop-off to reduce the number of parents in the building.

-Our Busy Bookworms enrichment program is being held in the individual classrooms instead of all sharing the library. 

-Staffing has been adjusted so that age groups are never mixed together during the day. 

-Staff are signing in and out of each room they are in to allow for quicker contact tracing. 

-We continue to follow license regulations in regard to cleaning and sanitizing each night!

A Few Key Points

-If your child or someone in your house is waiting on test results due to COVID symptoms, no members of the household can return until the tested person has received a negative result back. 

-If your child has “Close contact” (15 or more minutes within 6 feet of someone diagnosed as COVID positive even if mask were worn) they cannot return until 14 days after the last time they had contact.

-If your child has COVID: They cannot return until 10 days since symptoms began (or 10 days from day they were tested if asymptomatic). They also need to have had symptoms resolve, and been fever free for a minimum of 24 hours without medication, so it could be longer than 10 days depending on symptoms. 

-If a parent or someone else in the household had a close contact exposure but isn’t symptomatic, your child CAN attend Summit–if the household member with close contact becomes COVID positive, then refer to the 14 close contact timeline. 

-If a parent/household member is diagnosed with COVID – the timeline gets trickier. If you can completely isolate from your Summit student, they can return 14 days after isolation begins. If you are unable to isolate completely, you need to wait the minimum 10 days for the positive person to not be contagious, and THEN the 14 day quarantine period starts for the Summit student.

If you are unable to isolate completely, you need to wait the minimum 10 days for the positive person to not be contagious, and THEN the 14 day quarantine period starts for the Summit student, meaning a minimum of 24 days before they can return to Summit.
