Dear CVCS Parents,
The Cumberland Valley Christian School Administration has been closely monitoring the developing concerns with the Coronavirus. The health and welfare of our students and faculty is top priority of our School Board and Administration. Mrs. Garvin has been receiving daily updates and communication from the local, state and federal agencies as they are keeping School Principals informed. I feel that it is important that you as parents receive the latest information on how to keep yourself and loved ones safe. As this situation is evolving rapidly, I am also including links below to the CDC and PA Dept. of Health webpage for advice and local guidance during this time.
Effective immediately the School Administration is implementing several santiation plans within our campus. All of our buildings will continue getting a cleaning each night as well as additional deep cleaning over the weekend. Daily sanitation of touch points on campus and within our transportation department has been implemented. These sanitation procedures will be repeated regularly throughout the school day. Sanitation staff as well as faculty are being diligent to ensure our campus is sanitized. Teachers will continue to encourage the students to practice good hygiene habits, which include proper handwashing during the day. We are encouraging all students to bring in a personal water bottle that can be refilled on campus to avoid drinking directly from the water fountains. In the event that your child becomes ill for any reason, please keep the child home until the child is symptom free for 48 hours (2 days).
As your students may have mentioned, CVCS will be receiving several international students next week. All students were vetted by the United States government and have been cleared of the coronavirus prior to arriving to the United States in February. As precaution, the students have been in quarantine since arriving and have been receiving continued medical screenings to monitor their health. The agency is constantly updating us with information about these students, and if any health concerns were to arise, the students will not be allowed to attend CVCS.
I will continue to keep on top of the developments pertaining to the Coronavirus in the coming days. If a school closure or class/athletic activity requires cancellation due to mandated guidelines, we will notify you as soon as possible. I appreciate and am thankful for your prayers and support as we navigate the remainder of the school year.
