COVID-19

Updated August 2, 2021:
Trinity administration will continue to monitor guidelines and conditions throughout the school year. We look forward to our Prayer / Dedication Night on Tuesday, August 17th at 6:30 PM at Grace Baptist Church as well as greeting all students and seeing their smiling faces at Meet Your Teacher day Wednesday, August 18th and the first day of school Thursday, August 19th. 

Trinity will rise to the challenge of the 2021-22 school year in a way that fully embraces our mission and vision to educate children to be men and women of virtue, wisdom, purpose and courage. At the same time, the health and safety of our beloved community is paramount. 
 

Trinity is prepared with effective health and safety protocols, high-quality teaching and learning models, improved technology, sanitation and air purification, and a rich student life experience. Being flexible is something we have all become accustomed to over the past several months as we have navigated ever-changing guidelines from the LA County Dept of Health and the state of California.

Under each heading, select a title and click on it to read more below. The first one (Sanitation of our Facilities) is visible by default.

The key to opening our campus responsibly includes the promotion of healthy practices by all to maintain healthy environments. Included here are guidelines we ask all (faculty, staff, students, parent volunteers, guests, etc.) to be aware of and put into practice.

Strategies

  • Trinity will continue to use staggered arrival/drop-off windows (between 7:30 AM-8:00 AM) and dismissal/pick-up times (12:15 PM, TK/K; 2:30 PM, TK-2nd; 2:55 PM, 3rd-12th) and locations to minimize large gatherings of students. 

  • Maximizing space between seating and desks. Distancing teachers and other staff desks to be away from students.   

  • Turning desks to face in the same direction (rather than facing each other), or have students sit on only one side of tables, spaced apart.  

  • Clear barriers may be used between students’ workspace when physical distancing isn’t feasible.

  • Discouraging the sharing of items that are difficult to clean or disinfect.

  • Keeping each child’s belongings separated from others’ and in individually labeled containers, cubbies, or areas when possible.

  • Ensuring adequate supplies to minimize sharing of high-touch materials when possible (e.g., assigning each student their own art supplies, equipment) or limit use of supplies and equipment by one group of children at a time and clean and disinfect between use.

  • Opening interior and exterior doors to classrooms, when possible, to increase ventilation and to introduce fresh outdoor air as much as possible.

  • Placing air purifiers in rooms with decreased ventilation. 

  • Regular, manufacturer-recommended maintenance of HVAC systems.

Nutrition 

  • Students who bring their own meals will be expected to not share food and we recommend disposable utensils or dishes.

  • Any food offered at any Trinity event will be pre-packaged boxes or bags.

  • For those who utilize Choice Lunch, they have new procedures to limit the risk of spread.  Their hot entrees will be sealed and cold entrees will be in a pre-packaged bag.  

  • Food service volunteers and staff will use gloves and facial coverings when delivering/serving food.   


Enhanced Health Office

  • The health office is equipped with a designated well and sick area with a curtain for privacy, a private bathroom, a hands-free sink, and a separate exit for sick students. We have also purchased additional PPE (surgical masks, non-latex gloves, protective face shields, gowns), touchless thermometers, and are ready to serve students. 

The following protocols will remain a part of our regular practices:

  • Checking for signs and symptoms of COVID-related illness.

  • Conducting visual wellness checks of students and taking students’ temperature with a no-contact thermometer.  

  • Documenting and tracking incidents of possible exposure and notifying local health officials, staff, and families immediately.  

  • Monitoring staff and students throughout the day for signs of illness; sending home students and staff with a fever of 100.4 or higher, cough or other COVID-19 symptoms. Other symptoms of COVID-19 include chills, muscle pain, diarrhea, vomiting, or new loss of taste or smell.
