Yes, we've been doing in-person school all year! This summer we made substantial investments in facility and technology upgrades
that promote healthy distancing in the classroom. We believe our school size gives us a real advantage in these conditions
, because we are big enough to bring significant experience and resources to bear, but we are small enough to make creative adjustments quickly
as the world around us changes. We invite you to read our full plan here
. Some key highlights include the following:
- We have an extremely capable and experienced team of two school nurses who remain in regular communication with the Tulsa Health Department to determine best practices for managing our school health procedures. We are following their guidance, and our two nurses serve as invaluable, accessible resources to all our MVC families.
- Of course, our desire is to have as many of our students as possible in the classroom. But we have implemented technology to allow students on a temporary quarantine to do learning at home while staying as connected to the classroom as technology will allow, allowing for a seamless re-entry when their time at home is done. Our goal is disrupt student learning as little as possible.
- We are implementing evidenced-based distancing measures throughout the school day, including a selective mask policy that takes into consideration the activity and the age of the student, adapted schedules with staggered class movement, significant distancing measures when large groups are required, and much more that you can read about in our plan.
- We are continuing with comprehensive cleaning and disinfecting measures by a qualified janitorial service that will take place nightly with approved chemicals. Weekly, there will be an additional mist spraying of recommended agents for extra coverage.
We do not profess to have perfect predictions about the future of this school year. But our Eagle community is strong, our teachers are fiercely committed, and (most importantly) the Lord has determined our steps and holds our future in His hands. We are walking through this school year relying on Him.
