Returning to Campus – What is WGCS Doing? | Walnut Grove Christian School

WGCS leadership and staff have worked tirelessly to re-engineer our school environment, develop protocols to reduce risk of infection, and modify our facility:

  • Installed Phenomenal AireCold Plasma Generator on all HVAC systems and have taken steps to provide improved ventilation in classrooms.
  • Created outdoor learning areas to be utilized by teachers as much as possible.
  • Provide hand sanitizing stations throughout the school.
  • Classroom layouts have been modified to provide increased space for students. Non essential furnishings and all carpets and fabric items have been removed from classrooms.
  • Upon arrival at school, students, staff, and anyone entering the building will have their temperature checked and complete a symptom assessment. We ask that parents keep sick students at home.
  • Thursday Chapel has been redesigned to stream worship and teaching into the classrooms.
  • Students will eat lunch in their classroom with their class.
  • Large group activities such as recess and music have been redesigned to minimize group sizes.
  • Teachers will be provided with shields to wear when working with students in which appropriate distancing is not possible. Masks for students are optional.
  • Hand washing, cleaning, and sanitizing will occur with increased frequency.
  • When at all possible, students will remain with the same group of students throughout the day.
  • A plan will be in place for continued learning if a school group, student, or teacher must remain at home because of COVID-19 exposure.
