DISTANCE LEARNING BEGINS

While we currently have no known cases of COVID-19 within the Currey Ingram community, we do have colleagues and family members who are in at-risk categories. Additionally, we are also a school that prides itself on serving the community, and as such it is imperative that we take steps as individuals and as a community to help limit the spread of the coronavirus.
 
As such, Currey Ingram Academy will move to a distance learning model starting Monday, March 23 and will continue through Friday, April 24. Although, as the situation evolves, we may have to extend our distance learning time frame.
 
This decision was not made lightly. It was informed not only by our priority to protect the health and safety of our students and employees but also by our communal responsibility to slow the spread of COVID-19. Many of our colleagues in our independent school community will be following a similar course. We believe this is a critical moment in the outbreak when such measures can potentially impact the spread of the disease.
 
As public health officials have emphasized, school closures will not be effective unless they are accompanied by social distancing strategies. We ask that you restrict your social interactions during this period. If our student body is out and about, spending time with various friend groups, the virus is more likely to continue its spread. 

PRACTICE 'PHYSICAL' DISTANCING

TIPS FOR STAYING HEALTHY

  • Recommendations from Currey Ingram Nurse Angie Batts

    Symptoms of the coronavirus include fever, cough and shortness of breath. As of this writing, the Department of State has issued a Level 4 Warning, advising against all travel to China. The virus has a reported 14-day incubation period. Please follow the recommendations listed below from Currey Ingram Nurse Angie Batts and the Center for Disease Control:
    • Keep sick children home. If your children have a fever ≥100.0, keep them home until they are fever free for 24 hours. They must be fever free without fever reducing medication such as Tylenol or Advil. Administering Tylenol or Advil does not make the student non-contagious; it simply removes the symptom of fever. Keeping sick children home prevents the spread of the virus to others. Any child determined to be sick while at school will be sent home.
    • Practice good hand hygiene by washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer and wash as soon as you can.
    • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow or shoulder, not into your hands.
    • Teach your children not to share personal items like drinks, food, or unwashed utensils.
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth whenever possible.
