Dear Parents, Guardians and Students:
After careful deliberation, Clear Passage Educational Center (CPEC) has decided to suspend student access to CPEC’s campus, beginning Monday, March 16. Access to CPEC’s campus and the computer center will resume Monday, April 20 (which includes CPEC’s spring recess from April 13 to 17). This action is an extra measure of protection to help prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, or COVID-19. We do not have any presumptive or confirmed cases of the new coronavirus on our campus, but we are taking this step to help protect public health.
During this period students will continue to have access to all online courses via Fuel Ed (Peak) and will be expected to complete assigned coursework from home. In addition, regularly scheduled student meetings with Mr. Zeiler (lead teacher) will be conducted via telephone.
As a safety precaution, students are advised to stay home and minimize social contact as much as possible to keep caregivers and adult family members safe. Children have not been shown to be a high-risk group for serious illness from this virus. However, they can transmit the virus to those most vulnerable. During this period, public health officials recommend that families make arrangements for childcare that avoids leaving children with elderly people who are more vulnerable to the impact of the virus.
Also, per our prior communication, the following are recommendations to help prevent the spread of coronavirus and other infectious diseases:
- Stay home when ill. This includes symptoms such as fever, cough/difficulty breathing and/or intestinal problems. Stay home at least 24 hours after you are fever free.
- Frequently wash hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.
- Cough/sneeze into your sleeve (elbow) or a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces such as door handles.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
Additional information will be shared via text, email and CPEC’s website.
