Covid-19 Update

March 25, 2020

 

Governor Henry McMaster announced today that all South Carolina Schools will continue to be closed until April 30, 2020. He also stated that “if there is a way to safely open our schools earlier, we will do that.”

Mauldin Christian Academy Elementary school teachers will continue to serve our students through video lessons, video reviews and constant access to their teachers, this will continue until we are allowed to return to the MCA campus.

Mauldin Christian Academy has made the decision to close our half day preschool program for the remainder of the year. This was not an easy decision to make but feel that it is necessary at this time. Your children will be missed and hope that they will return to us in the fall for a new year of growth and learning.

Mauldin Christian Academy has made the decision to keep our Daycare open during this time. We will be changing our hours of operation to 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. beginning Monday, March 30, 2020. All children will be dropped off at the main entrance to the school and picked up in the same way. Parents will not be allowed to come to the classrooms or walk down the halls. This decision will be updated on a weekly basis.

I am reminded daily, that our God is all powerful and will see us through this storm. We are praying for your children and for each of you.

Philippians 4:13 – “We can do all things through Christ who gives us strength”

MCA will close Elementary and Preschool beginning Monday, March 16 and will reopen on March 30 for regular schedule. Daycare will open as usual but we ask parents to only bring children if necessary. If a child is showing any signs of sickness, please do not bring to school. There will also be no after school during these two weeks.

 

IMPORTANT CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION

If you, or a member in your household, comes in contact with someone with the coronavirus, you cannot come to school or work at MCA for 14 days from exposure. This decision is based on CDC’s recommendation in cooperation with Greenville County Schools.

Dear Parents,

IMPORTANT INFORMATION – As everyone knows our country is experiencing outbreaks of the Coronavirus in most states, including South Carolina. We are doing everything that we can to prevent this disease from entering our school. We are advising everyone to wash hands frequently and cover our mouths when we sneeze or cough. We are wiping down all surfaces including handrails, door knobs etc. as often as possible. We are also stressing the importance of keeping children home for at least 24 hours if any signs of illness occur.

We have seen a number of cases of the flu, strep throat, and viral infections, even pneumonia, over the past few weeks. We would like to remind everyone of our illness policy.  If your children are sick, PLEASE DO NOT send them to school.  Illness can spread so quickly from child to child and even from classroom to classroom; we can limit this by making sure you keep your children home if they are sick.  The following information is a reminder of the illness policy as stated in the Parent Handbook.

A child must be free of fever, vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, symptoms, etc. for at least 24 hours WITHOUT the assistance of over the counter medicines before returning to school or daycare. If possible, please keep child home for 48 hours.

We will not admit children with signs of communicable diseases until a physician sends WRITTEN notification that the symptoms have been treated and the child is no longer contagious.  The child will not be allowed to return to the Academy for 24 hours without written notification by a physician that he/she is not contagious.

If you have more than one child attending the Academy, please take older siblings to their classrooms first thing in the morning and infants last. We are doing everything that we can to keep illness from spreading at MCA.

Sincerely,

Julie Brown
Director – Mauldin Christian Academy
