Solid Rock Community School has implemented numerous measures based on guidance from the CDC and FLDOE to deal with the current COVID-19 crisis. In order to accommodate families, Solid Rock Community School offers students the following three options: attend school on campus in a traditional classroom; participate in flexible virtual learning; participate in a blended option that includes a mixed schedule. We understand that families have different concerns during this time, and we want all of our families to make choices that align with their unique needs.
Solid Rock Community School has implemented numerous safety and sanitation procedures that will be utilized throughout the school day to reduce risk and exposure to COVID-19. We offer small class sizes, hand washing stations in all classrooms, and hand sanitizing units throughout the property. Plexi-glass sneeze guards are utilized in visitor/delivery areas. Screening and temperature checks will take place upon arrival. Factors like the use of face masks and shields will vary based on up-to-date information in our county, but the school is currently stocked with PPE (personal protective equipment). Desk shields are being used on all academic desks and tables within the classrooms. Social distancing seating stickers are being utilized in the lunch areas, with table seating limited to half capacity.
Beyond the daily precautionary measures we have set in place, we have also installed commercial sanitation measures on campus. A UVC air duct disinfecting system will provide a rapid method of utilizing germicidal lamps within the air ducts, lethal to bacteria, viruses, and micro-organisms. Each classroom will be equipped with a medical-grade HEPA-13 filtration system that is tested to remove 99.9% of particles down to 0.1 microns. This medical-grade filter catches pollen, dust, mold, bacteria, virus carriers, and other tiny airborne particles you can’t see. We are also using electrostatic and ULV disinfecting sprayers and foggers to disinfect and sanitize the classrooms regularly. We have even included copper floor mats to disinfect shoes as people walk on campus.
Solid Rock Community School is offering three distinct learning options so families can make choices that align with their needs and concerns- Traditional School, Virtual School, and Blended School. We will happily assist parents in choosing the best option for their child/ren. These options may change as new information is available and risk factors change.
As a school that focuses on health, wellness, and environmentalism, we take the concerns and risks of COVID-19 seriously. The education, safety, and health of our students and school family are our priorities.
