Re-Entry Plan - Crawford Adventist Academy Elementary Main Campus 2020-2021
1 OVERVIEW
The following re-opening plan has been developed based on the guidelines
of the Ontario Conference Risk Management Department, the Ontario
Conference Office of Education and the Ontario Ministry Guidelines for re-
entry to schools due to COVID-19. As new guidelines and requirements
become available, this plan will be updated to reflect these changes.
Should it be necessary to discontinue in-person classes, this decision will
be based on the recommendations of the Ministry of Education, Public
Health, and the Ontario Conference office of Education.

2 RE-ENTRY OPTIONS
Crawford Adventist Academy Main Campus has
established a re-entry planning committee which
is working diligently to develop a re-entry strategy
that allows for flexibility, transparency and prioritizes the health and safety
of our community.

CAA Main Campus is currently preparing the physical campus to support
students in the falloff 2020; however, Administration recognizes that some
families may not be comfortable with their child(ren) returning at that time.
Administration has developed two different re-entry options for our families
to navigate.

   1. Online:
      As a family you have opted to remain with CAA Main but you are
      most comfortable with your child completing his/her studies online

   2. Onsite:
      In compliance with the Ministry of Health, and the Ontario Seventh-
      day Adventist Office of Education, CAA Main is able to execute the
      physical campus modifications needed to support students safely
      returning to campus in the fall of 2020.

                                                                        Page 3 of 17
Re-Entry Plan - Crawford Adventist Academy Elementary Main Campus 2020-2021
The province of Ontario has lifted the school suspension of in-class
        instruction. As a family, you have determined that you are
        comfortable with your child(ren) returning to the physical Campus.

NOTE:
Each family will decide which option is best for them. We are not offering
some days in the school and some days at home. It will be one or the
other.
The opportunity to switch from one to the other will be at a Semester break.

2.1 Online

2.1.1     Remote Learning

Remote learning at CAA Main is present to support
families who are unable to attend on-site learning
initiatives due to health and safety concerns in the immediate family or for
personal reasons. It is a flexible option which allows students to complete
their courses completely online with support provided by their teacher.
Students and families engaged in this program need to be self-driven,
organized and accountable for their academic progress.

Hybrid learning is not an option for JK – 8.

2.1.2     What it will look like…

Students will be doing their work on-line at home. However, it will look
different than it did previously with online learning for our returning
Crawford students.

The classroom teacher will have a camera in his/her classroom which will
be providing a zoom link to the student on-line at home. The student will
be seeing the instructional periods that are happening in the classroom
simultaneously with his/her classmates onsite at school. Therefore all

                                                                       Page 4 of 17
Re-Entry Plan - Crawford Adventist Academy Elementary Main Campus 2020-2021
instruction will be seen “live” and the student at home will be in school the
regular school hours.

Students will have all the necessary textbooks and workbooks at home with
them to accomplish their academic goals. Also, if needed, a borrowed
device (either an iPad for younger students or a Chromebook for older
students) will be made available.

The classroom teacher will monitor the student’s progress using the Google
Classroom platform.

2.2 Onsite

2.2.1    On-Campus Learning

CAA Main Campus Administration is preparing for
on-campus school operations to resume in the fall of 2020. The community
will follow specific health precautions which will be in accordance with our
local, provincial and federal requirements.

2.2.2    What it will look like…

Students will sit at their desks 1-metre apart. Each classroom has been
meticulously measured to figure out the maximum amount of students it
can hold. Cohorting as a class will be maintained as much as possible. All
students will utilize their Google Classroom.

                                                                       Page 5 of 17
Re-Entry Plan - Crawford Adventist Academy Elementary Main Campus 2020-2021
3 SCHOOL DAY
3.1 Attendance
Absence due to COVID-19 symptoms and illness will be recorded.
Therefore, parents must report absences to the JK – 8 office each morning
for the absence to be excused. In the event of an extended absence,
teachers and administration will work with parents so that the child’s
learning will be uninterrupted.

3.1.1   Before Leaving Home

During the few weeks leading up to the re-opening of school, speak to your
children about the pandemic. Discuss the following:
   • The importance of hand washing & wearing a mask
   • Social Distancing
   • Discuss the correct way to sneeze/cough (into the elbow)
   • Procedure needed to return to school (i.e. entry screening process,
      temperature taken, recess times, lunch etc.)
   • Should you need mental health suggestions to assist your child
      during the process, see:
      http://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/pro/programs/publichealth/coronaviru
      s/docs/2019_talking_children_guidance.pdf

Parents will sign a Parent Screening Agreement which outlines the
procedure for assessing your child’s health each day. CAA will require that
parents confirm each morning that their student’s temperature is not
greater than 100.4°F (38°C) before departing for school. Please
understand that should a student be found to have a temperature of greater
than 100.4°F, the students will be sent home.

Ultimately, students, staff and all faculty should stay home OR will be sent
home if they have one or more of the symptoms listed in the Campus
Access section:

                                                                      Page 6 of 17
Re-Entry Plan - Crawford Adventist Academy Elementary Main Campus 2020-2021
3.2 Campus Access
Your child should remain at home if they have any of the following
symptoms:
   Temperature greater than 100.4°F (38°C)
   New cough
   Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
   Sore throat
   GI (vomiting or diarrhea)
   New rash, muscle aches, or headache
   Chills or repeated shaking with chills
   Loss of taste or smell
   Exposure to someone who is ill or displaying symptoms, or diagnosed
     with COVID-19

If a student, faculty or staff member exhibit the above symptoms, they will
not be permitted to return to school until the their health care provider has
provided the school with documentation indicating it is safe for the them to
return to school. This is very important and though inconvenient, will
demonstrate your concern for the school body as a whole. The whole
community relies on your honesty and integrity to keep the school safe.
(Please see the Ministry of Ontario return to school guidelines).

3.2.1    Arriving at School

3.2.1.1 Face Covering

              Grades JK - 3 are recommended to have a mask as well,
              however it is not a requirement, and it will not be mandated.
              Students in Grades 4 - 8 will be required to wear a face
              covering of their choice, and it will remain on except for lunch
period and recesses.
If a student forgets his mask at home, one will be provided on entering the
school. However, it is encouraged to purchase a PLAIN, DARK
COLOURED comfortable, re-usable mask in advance for school use.

                                                                       Page 7 of 17
Re-Entry Plan - Crawford Adventist Academy Elementary Main Campus 2020-2021
3.2.1.2 Lining Up

            Markers will be placed on the ground, showing where students
            should stand for screening stations.

The students will line up outside as follows:
   Grades 2P and 3S, will line up at the door on the north side of the
     building;
   Grades 4LK, 5RC and 5E classes will line up under the overhang at
     the stairwell doors and then down the sidewalk on the indicated 6 feet
     apart signs.
   Grades JK, SK, 1K, and 6J classes will enter through the main
     Elementary entrance with their waiting line going straight down the
     sidewalk.
   Grades 7 and 8 students will go directly to their portables.

3.2.1.3 Temperature Taking

            The students will be met at the doors with someone who will
            take their temperature with a handheld digital thermometer,
            and sanitize their hands. Once cleared, the child will then
            proceed up to his/her classroom. If a child has an elevated
            temperature, they will be separated from the others and their
            parent/guardian will be called to come and pick them up
immediately).
Grade 7 and 8 students will be screened by their teacher before entering
the portables.

3.2.2   Parents/Visitors
There is limited access to parents, guardians or visitors beyond the front
doors. Hence, non-essential visitors or parents/guardians without a valid
reason will not be permitted access. All parents/visitors should be in a
mask and practice social distancing at all times.

                                                                     Page 8 of 17

3.4 School Routine

3.4.1   Classroom Routine
The students will remain in their homeroom cohort for the entire day.
  • The JK and SK classes will work as one cohort, as they have close
     proximity with recess together, hallway together and shared
     bathrooms.

    towel dispensers.
  • Washroom breaks will be scheduled into the day.

3.4.3   Recess
  • Face coverings will not be required at recess.
  • Recess will be a structured activity.
  • Each class will stay in its cohort and will be assigned a portion on the
    playground - In the field, on the cement pad and in the play structure
    area. This will be on a rotating schedule.
  • Teachers have been assigned to organize recess to maintain social
    distancing and to minimize contact between students while enjoying
    their free time outside.

3.4.4   Lunch & Cafeteria
  • Lunch will be held in the homeroom classroom.
  • The cafeteria will be accessed as usual through the basket sent down
    from the classroom.

    you wish them to bring warm food from home.

                                                                    Page 10 of 17
• Water fountains are not available for use, therefore, students must
     bring their own water bottles.

3.5 School Dismissal
             School dismissal will be staggered by classes:
               • Grades JK-3 at 3:00 p.m.
               • Grades 4-6 at 3:15 p.m.
               • Grades 7-8 at 3:30 p.m.

Students will not be released until a parent or guardian is present to take
them home. Upon arriving at the school each parent/guardian will meet an
assistant at the front Elementary Doors. The parent/guardian will give the
name of the student they wish to pick up and the door assistant will call up
to the hallway assistant in the designated hallways to inform the student
that their parent has arrived. The student will then exit the school and
leave the campus promptly under the guardianship of their parent/guardian.

A student will only be released to the persons listed on the student’s
Authorization Form for After School Pick-up. Photo ID will also be
requested to facilitate this procedure. Please have this document out and
ready so this process can happen as quickly as possible.

There will be no loitering in the playground or outside areas after school.
Students will remain in their classrooms until 3:30 for dismissal, and then
they will be taken by their teacher to After-School in the Gymnasium where
they will again wait for their parent/guardian. When the parent/guardian
arrives, the student will then be called out and will leave the campus.

If a parent/guardian arrives after 4:00 p.m., After-School charges will apply.

                                                                      Page 11 of 17
4 SCHOOL ACTIVITIES & PROGRAMS

4.1 Before-School Program
                   The school is looking into the feasibility of a Before-

beginning for any student remaining in the school after 4:00 p.m. The
students whose parents/guardians have not picked up their children by
3:30 will be walked by their homeroom teacher to the Gymnasium.

Students will remain in their classroom cohort while there and will be called
to meet their parent/guardian when they arrive where exit procedures will
be in place. Parent/guardian will report to the assistant at the entrance to
the Elementary doors when they arrive.

It is imperative that you fill in an Authorization Form for After-School Pick-
up along with the After-School Registration Form prior to the first day of
school. We will not release any student to anyone who is not on their Pick-
up form. Photo ID will be requested from all who pick up children from
After-School, so please have this document out and ready so this process
can happen as quickly as possible.

                                                                      Page 12 of 17

                     upon entrance to the bus.

There will be a seating plan for each bus, where students will be spaced as
far apart as possible, with siblings seated together. This will be maintained
for contact tracing purposes. Students in a classroom cohort will also be
seated closer together.

Masks are mandatory for all students (JK-12) who travel on the bus.

              from the other students immediately and their parent called to
              pick the child up.

              The child will not be permitted to use the school bus to return
              home.

If a child tests positive, they may not return to school until they are cleared
according to public health guidance.
