The summer break is coming to the end, and the new school year is about to start. Thousand Oaks Chinese School is excited to welcome all students back to school on August 20th, 2022! All registered students should be able to see the class information in the registration system. Each teacher will contact the students and parents in the next few days to communicate the preparations for the start of the school. Please pay attention to the email notification.
In view of the current COVID situation is still not optimistic, the Chinese school decided to follow the same safety measures implemented at the end of last semester to ensure campus safety, and hope that everyone will cooperate. The key points are summarized as follows (please read the attachment for details):
The campus is enclosed with yellow tape with two entry checkpoints (see the map in the attachment)
Entry ID is required to enter the campus: No body temperature measurement, but must wear a mask (Entry ID will be sent out to students by the teacher shortly)
Students in PreK, K, EC1-3, 1st, and 2nd grades will be dismissed early. Please pay attention to the dismissal time of each grade and the pick-up zone
The yellow tape will be removed after 11:35am, and parents are allowed to enter the campus to wait, but not the classroom
Recommend keeping social distance, washing hands frequently, and don’t share food
Parents need to make an appointment to enter the school by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please pay close attention to the physical condition of the children at home every morning on the school day. If there are any uncomfortable symptoms, including a mild cold, please take a leave of absence and inform the teacher immediately
Encourage testing for the students with symptoms and the close contacts (within 6 feet for a cumulative total of 15 minutes over a 24 hour period) with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 (outside of a school setting). Students who test positive should stay home for at least five days. Please notify the school teacher and quarantine according to the CDC guideline.
Students who test positive and the close contacts are required to show negative results (<48 hours) before going back to school
In the next few weeks, TOCS will closely monitor the COVID situation to assess whether to further reduce the safety measures.
