Back-to-School at Excel
Preparing to Reopen
August 24, 2020
We have missed you! We're looking forward to seeing and reconnecting with our students and families soon.
To meet all our families' needs, we are preparing for a safe and healthy return to school on-campus as well as for remote learning. Please be sure to take the survey to let us know which option you will need for your child!
Our back-to-school start date is August 24. Please note: our on-site option continues to be contingent upon local and state governance.
BACK-TO-SCHOOL FAQ 2020-2021
Will my child be required to wear a mask all day? Is the school providing masks or face shields?
No. We are requiring masks only during times where social distancing is challenging such as walking in line, walking to classrooms or other designated areas (as they may pass someone else), cooperative learning situations where they need to talk to another student, working closely with their teacher, etc.
At this time, we are asking all children to come with their own masks to school. We have purchased face shields and when those are available, your child may select to wear the face shield.
Will my child be required to have their temperature taken before entering school each day? Will you be checking temperatures at other times during the day?
Yes, they will be required to be fever-free and must have temp checked to enter the building.
Will I be able to walk my child to class each day?
I selected remote learning but want the option to change. When I wish to change, can I send my child to school even though I selected remote?
No. Once you select remote learning you will need to stay remote until the "all return date" commences.
I selected remote learning until Sept. 8; however, if I am uncomfortable sending my child after Sept. 8, can I keep them home to learn remotely?
Yes. We will be sending another survey out at the end of August to check return status of students.
I selected on-site learning, but if I am uncomfortable with my child being on campus, can I move them to remote learning?
Yes. You can always have the remote option. The on-site option is more limited as we are working to keep numbers low in classrooms for on-campus learning.
If I choose remote learning, can I pick up my child(ren)'s meals each day?
Will my child need to wear their uniform to school since we are dealing with COVID-19?
Do I have to complete the survey to start school?
Will my child's teacher be able to heat up food for my child if my child brings lunch?
Will my child be sharing school supplies with others?
Will After-Care be provided at this time?
No, but we hope to resume After-Care on October 1, 2020. Due to social distancing requirements and needing to keep populations in cohorts, we cannot offer our After-Care program at this time.
What if we have a positive COVID-19 test among teachers or students?
What symptoms should we be concerned about? Can my child come to school if they have the sniffles?
We are watching for symptoms provided by the CDC guidelines: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html
