After delaying the initial start date, Aquinas Academy is excited to open our 2020 Summer Programs! In accordance with regional guidelines for summer camps, and in keeping with the guidance from the school's Task Force who are developing plans for the school year, you will notice some changes this summer.
What we expect:
Parents, take your child(ren)’s temperature each morning. If a child has a temperature of 100.0° or higher, he/she should not attend camp that week. Please also check for these COVID-19 systems: cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches,headache, sore throat, congestion, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. If your child is showing any signs of feeling unwell, please make arrangements to keep your child at home.
What you can expect:
1. Drop-off: We ask that only campers enter the buildings. While practicing social distancing, parents may park and walk their child to the front door of the gym (basketball) or to the kindergarten porch (outdoor adventure / field hockey & lacrosse). If parents prefer to stay in their car, you may pull through one of the two bus lanes in front of the high school, where a staff member will come to your vehicle to check your child(ren) into camp.
2. Hand Hygiene: Campers will be encouraged to wash their hands with soap and water at intentional and routine intervals including but not limited to: after drop-off, during breaks, before lunch, after lunch, and before pick-up. Hand Sanitizer will also be readily available.
3. Social Distancing: Whenever possible, social distancing between each participant should be in effect.
4. Cleaning and Sanitation: Staff will be regularly cleaning and disinfecting “high touch” areas.
5. Face Coverings: All staff will wear face coverings (masks or shields) when indoors. Campers are not required to wear face coverings, however they may wear a mask if they are comfortable doing so, for the safety of others.
6. What to Bring: Campers are encouraged to bring their own sports equipment, to limit the use of communal sports equipment. All sports equipment will be sanitized as much as possible. Campers should bring their own water bottle, as school water fountains have been replaced with water bottle fillers, as well as their own snack and lunch for camps running 9:00 am – 3:00 pm.
7. Pick-up: Please pull through one of the two bus lanes and park. Display your child(ren)’s name card on the passenger side dashboard, and we will bring your child(ren) to you.
8. Notification: If in the course of the camp or in the few days following camp, your child stays home with symptoms and is subsequently tested for COVID, if that test is positive, please be sure to indicate their participation in the camp as part of contact tracing. In that situation, or in a situation where your child has been exposed to coronavirus through another contact, we request that you confidentially contact Joe Austin at email@example.com.
