PREVENTION & MITIGATION
Your children are our highest priority and their health, safety and welfare is of top concern. By working together, we can educate and build awareness regarding illness in our community, enforce good hygiene, monitor wellness and follow guidelines and protocols to ensure the best possible learning environment for students and the health of the whole community.
We know early detection is a significant part of any disease mitigation and Leadership Prep works closely with area health departments during times of heightened health concern. School medical staff and other staff members play a vital role in identifying illness at its outset and following protocols is critical to controlling outbreaks.
Leadership Prep very strictly enforces guidelines regarding illness and when to stay home from school, and it takes parents and staff members working together to be successful. If a child becomes ill while at school, faculty and staff do their best to isolate him or her and contact parents promptly to pick up their student.
Leadership Prep schools routinely teach and reinforce the following:
Proper hand washing (soap and water for 20 seconds and hand sanitizer in between)
- Washing hands after certain activities, including bathroom breaks, after recess and before lunch
- Cough and sneeze etiquette (cough into the upper sleeve or use tissue and dispose of it properly)
- Keeping hands away from eyes, nose and mouth
- Staying home if sick
- And other healthy habits
Hand sanitizer stations are available in every classroom as well as in common areas. In addition, the Leadership Prep Facilities Department follows strict guidelines and uses hospital-grade products to clean and disinfect school buildings daily. In addition to regular custodial cleanings, a special team is also utilized throughout the District in times of heightened health concern to further prevent the spread of disease.
