Communicable Disease Management Plan

2020-2021 School Year


We are prepared to deal with current and future COVID-19 restrictions. With small class sizes and large classrooms we can easily deal with social distancing on our 8 acre campus. According to Oregon Health Authority’s Ready Schools, Safe Learners “The authority to close a private school and transition to distance learning varies depending on the governance structure of the school (page 10)...Establish a minimum of 35 square feet per person when determining room capacity. (page 20, 1c)”


In March we closed and were in full operation with distance learning within one week. We can do this again if necessary. However, this is not a likely scenario. We will open in September 2020 following the OHA guidelines.


Communicable Disease Management Plan for COVID-19

  • All students, staff and guests will enter through the main door facing East.

  • Temperature of all teachers, students, staff, and visitors will be taken upon entry to the building.

  • Doors to the school will remain locked during the school day. Visitors must call the school phone which is posted on the door to gain entry if necessary. Doors can all be opened from the inside in case of fire or other emergency.

  • Visitors must sign in and out including contact information

  • A student or staff member who becomes ill during the school day will be quarantined in the small study room near the building’s main entry until transportation home can be provided.

  • Each student will have 35 square feet of space

  • All students and staff members will wear a mask or face shield except when eating and remain 6’ from others whenever possible.

  • The schedule will be planned to minimize students changing classrooms.

  • Each student will have their own assigned table or desk in a room.

  • Students and teachers will bring their own lunches and eat and drink at their assigned desk or table. The kitchen is off-limits.

  • Doorknobs, desks, and chairs will be sanitized whenever a classroom change occurs.

  • Restrooms will be sanitized after each use.

  • Careful attendance will be kept for notification purposes in case of a COVID-19 case.

  • Names and phone numbers of all students, staff and parents are on file in the office.

  • Anyone with any symptoms (fever, cough, etc.) will not be allowed in the school building.

  • Principal Kathleen Carlson will enforce these requirements and conduct training for teachers.


This plan will be modified as State requirements change.
