What state/CDC guidelines will PCLC observe for the prevention of spreading Covid-19? ● All students, staff, and instructors will be required to attest they do not have a temperature of over 100.4 degrees in order to be on campus. Upon entering our building each day and swiping their electronic key fob, all students and staff digitally attest they have no symptoms of Covid. If a student, staff member, or instructor develops a temperature of 100.4 or higher they will immediately be sent home. Students and staff who have any of the following symptoms should stay home: fever, cough, shortness of breath, muscle or body aches, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion, nausea or vomiting. ● Face coverings must be worn while inside classrooms by all staff, students, and visitors. Students with medical exemptions must wear an exemption lanyard while on campus. If your child has a medical reason they are unable to wear a mask, a lanyard may be obtained from our front office. ● All student-contacted items (desks, tables, chairs equipment, handrails, restroom facilities, etc.) will be disinfected between classes and all students and staff will use hand sanitizer upon entering classroom.
How will lunch be handled? ● Students will enjoy lunch outdoors unless there is inclement weather. ● Masks will be optional when outdoors. If you wish for your student to wear a mask, you may instruct them to do so, but the staff of PCLC will not be enforcing-mask wearing while outside of the classroom. ● On rainy days, students will proceed to the classroom of the class they would take after lunch and they will eat at their desk.
What need to bring to campus for onsite classes? ● All students should bring their own small bottle of hand sanitizer. This should be easily accessible as it will need to be used upon entering each class or before engaging in any group activities. ● Key fobs must be used to enter the locked entrance to our portion of the building. This is how personal health checks will be verified. Please keep your key fobs in a secure place. One fob will be issued to each family and additional/replacement fobs are available for $25. ● Security lanyards must be worn by all adults on campus at all times.
Can charter funds be used to pay for onsite classes? ● Families who are using charter funds to pay for PCLC classes must comply with whatever charter guidelines are given for in-person classes. ● If charter funding for onsite classes is not provided for onsite learning, charter students may take any of our classes online. If charters allow for onsite learning, charter students may attend onsite. ● Families who are not using charter funds to pay for classes may choose to have their students take vendor classes either onsite or online.
What will happen if someone attending onsite classes at PCLC tests positive for Covid-19? ● In the event that someone has tested positive for Covid-19, our campus manager or one of our campus directors should be notified immediately. ● The Campus Manager will contact the Orange County Department of Health and will comply with their specific directions. ● All students, staff, and instructors will also comply with guidelines for quarantine and when they may return to campus after they have a positive Covid-19 test.
If someone tests positive for Covid-19 at PCLC, will the campus close? ● We will only close our campus if we are mandated to do so by the Orange County Department of Health. ● All students, staff, and instructors will also comply with guidelines for quarantine and when they may return to campus after they have a positive Covid-19 test.
