Dear Faith Families,
We wanted to share with you some of the steps our school is taking to prevent the spread of illness across our campus, and plan for the possible spread of the coronavirus in our community.
As the CDC emphasized, there is not currently a coronavirus pandemic in the United States. We are aware of the recent news of a “presumptive positive” case reported by the Southern Nevada Health District. It is important to remember that handling the spread of a serious contagion like the coronavirus is primarily a task for public health agencies. Any directives from the World Health Organization, CDC, or local governmental organizations should be followed. However, given how quickly the global situation is evolving, we are monitoring new developments and will continue to reevaluate our steps and actions daily.
In the meantime, the most effective way to stay healthy and minimize the spread of infectious disease is to follow basic health best practices:
  • Enforcing proper hygiene, such as washing hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds. 
  • Use hand sanitizers if soap and water is not available. 
  • Cover coughs / sneezes with disposable tissue or cough into your sleeve, wash hands after 
  • Asking all who are feeling ill to stay home until they recover.
  • Avoid close contact, especially with those who are sick.
  • Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Get your flu vaccine and be up to date on your vaccinations. 
  • Please continue to report to the health office any confirmed diagnosis of illness 
We use cleaning products year-around that are suitable for disinfecting and wiping down all common areas to stop the spread of germs. We are prepared to alter our procedures and planning should the situation change. We are also thinking ahead regarding the impact travel, school trips, and other non-typical school activities will have in the context of the coronavirus. At this time, all athletic contests and practices are going as planned. Coaches and administration will communicate any changes if they are necessary. We will communicate any changes when the time is appropriate.
In times like this, we are particularly grateful for the strength and togetherness of this community. Please continue to look for further communications from us on this matter.
