The following components are essential to the specific COVID-19 mitigation strategies that we are employing to keep our students, staff and the wider TAISM community safe and healthy when we are on campus during hybrid learning. Updates have been noted in red text for your convenience.
Priorities for Protection and Detection
TAISM utilizes multi-layered prevention strategies to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission within the school building.
By layering mitigation strategies like masking, distancing, hand-washing hygiene, small class sizes, cohort groups, and cleaning and disinfection protocols, we can mitigate the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) even if an infected individual is in the building or in contact with the school community. This is, in essence, the “swiss cheese” model of prevention strategies, adapted for school communities around the world during the COVID-19 pandemic, as shown in the graphic below.
Maintaining a Healthy Community
Communication Between Home & SchoolIt is essential that parents tell the school if children are ill, experiencing symptoms, or have tested positive. Likewise, the school, while keeping the confidentiality of individuals, will notify families if positive tests of COVID-19 are found to be present in students, faculty, or staff attending school in person.
If COVID-19 is Detected
If You Are Sick or Caring for Someone
Please take steps to care for yourself and help protect others in your home and community.
