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.

While many guidelines will be put in place to avoid the spread of COVID-19 we recognize that some on our campus may still get sick. Included here are protocols that will be followed if this does occur.

Students

The following guidelines will be followed, when applicable, for all students suspected to have COVID-19:

  • Students who develop symptoms of illness while at school will be separated from others right away in a designated sick area through which others do not enter or pass.

  • When possible, a mask (if not wearing a face covering) will be placed on the student with fever and/or cough as soon as possible after moving them to the isolation area.

  • Students will remain in isolation with continued supervision and care until picked up by an authorized adult to go home.

    • Parents/guardians/caregivers should be prepared to have a child picked-up within the hour.

 

Faculty/Staff

The following guidelines will be followed, when applicable, for all faculty and staff members suspected to have COVID-19:

  • Faculty/staff members who develop symptoms of illness will be sent home and administration will have emergency sub plans in place (as needed).

All

The following guidelines will be followed, when applicable, for any and all from our campus suspected to have COVID-19:

  • Identify adults or children who may have had close contact (within 6 feet or less) with the ill individual for 15 minutes or longer.

  • In the event of a confirmed case of COVID-19 with potential exposure to staff or students, the school nurse will contact the Department of Public Health for consultation and guidance. (This procedure is similar to what we have in place for other reportable diseases.)

    • Note that while all parents and staff should be informed of a confirmed case of COVID-19 in someone connected to school, it is not legal to share the name of the infected individual. Trinity will protect confidential information.

  • Contact the school nurse for questions regarding COVID-19 exposure or questions regarding COVID-19  symptoms.

  • Twice per week, voluntary COVID testing will be available for students, parents, faculty and staff.

 

Returning to School after Presenting with COVID-19 Symptoms

Any student or staff member with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 are to stay home and not return to campus until they have communicated with the school health office and provided appropriate documentation of a negative COVID-19 test or documentation of a non-COVID diagnosis.  

  • Individuals are to stay home until at least 5 days have passed after symptoms first appeared and at least 24 hours after recovery.  For further instructions on how to calculate when your quarantine period ends go to:

  • “Recovery” means their fever is gone for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications and respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath) have improved.

  • Individuals without Covid-19 symptoms, who had a positive Covid-19 lab test, must isolate themselves for 5 days from the date of the positive lab test.  

  • A person is considered to be diagnosed with or likely to have Covid-19, if the person has: a) Received a positive lab test for Covid-19, AND/OR b) been informed by a physician that they are likely to have Covid-19, AND/OR c) signs and symptoms that are consistent with Covid-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath or trouble breathing.)

    Those in close contact with students or staff with COVID-19 symptoms:

  • If the vaccination status of the individual exposed is unverified by the Health office then the student or staff member will be treated as unvaccinated and will be required to complete quarantine.

  • Any unvaccinated students or staff who were in close contact with someone diagnosed with or suspected to have COVID-19 are to home-quarantine for 5 days from the date of exposure.

  • “Close contact” is defined as being within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or is suspected to have COVID-19.
