Hello C2E Families and Friends,

We know that the education, health, and safety of our staff and students are always priority-one at C2E.  Given the recent public concerns over COVID-19, commonly referred to as the Coronavirus, I am sending information out so you all can have access to factual information, directly from the CDC. I am also including a good list of the best practices to prevent the spread of germs, not just the Coronavirus and what C2E is currently continuing to do.

Here is what we can do:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (sing the Happy Birthday Song)
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol as a temporary solution.
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow, not your hand or better yet, into a tissue and throw it away.
  • Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose, and mouth – simply, avoid touching those T-Zones! (the average person touches their face 85-100 times per day!)
  • Avoid contact with other people’s hands. Instead of high fives, let’s do elbow touches.
  • If you have any combination of fever, body aches, nausea, fatigue & weakness, and chills & sweats please take care of yourself, protect others by staying home, and contact your medical provider.

Here is what C2E is doing every day:

  • We are cleaning desks, tables, and common areas with a disinfectant in every room each evening.
  • We are providing hand sanitizer (while supplies last) when necessary for all who request it.
  • We continue to perform nightly cleaning of our entire facility.
  • We are sharing best practices above with all of our students and staff.
  • We continue to confer with DCSD and State officials on any necessary steps or information we receive and sharing that information in a timely manner with our community.

We know there’s a lot of info flying about! For accurate guidance and updates, we encourage you to visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.

 

All the best,

Mr. Barrett
