In addition to the advantage of being a micro-school, our environment includes special distance, sanitation, and illness/exposure monitoring in a way that does not impede the children's experience of being together: -Limited capacity in each classroom. -Desks and lunchtime spread out as much as possible. -Air purifiers throughout the school. -Daily COVID-19 questionnaire. -Daily temperature monitoring. -Frequently touched surfaces wiped down with effective, non-toxic disinfectant throughout the day. -Hand-washing and hand sanitizer upon arrival, before departure, and throughout the day. Drop off and pick up outside.
What if There’s Another Stay at Home Order? When children all over the world were sent to “At Home Learning” in March of 2020, learners from LFA rose to the occasion without missing a beat. While many were still looking up “What is a Zoom call?” these young world changers already figured out how to participate in one. They had been learning how to "exercise grit" all along through their LFA experience.
In the unfortunate event of a Stay at Home order during our 2022/2023 school year, here’s our plan: Elementary/Middle School: If "Stay at Home" orders happen again, learners from Leadership Faith Academy will take home their bag of materials, then continue their learning adventure of core skills, Socratic discussions, and hands-on projects at home, independently. We will also have scheduled zoom calls with the students where we go through all lessons and answer questions. Parents only need to give them the work space to have during that time. Pre-K/Kinder Class: If “Stay at Home” orders happen again, Leadership Faith Academy will support families from the school through a dynamic "LFA From Home" program of morning circle time via Zoom call, kits of novel materials to work with, daily story time via Zoom, a simple tracking system to encourage learners to have a balanced day, and projects that are anchored through a Zoom meeting.
