ODA COVID Response Fall 2021

Updated: July 19, 2021

​On March 2, 2021, Gov. Abbott issued Executive Order GA-34 opening Texas 100% and removing the statewide mask mandate.  This stance was reiterated with EO-GA-38 on July 29, 2021. One Day Academy has followed this lead, no longer requiring masks or social distancing as the COVID morbidity numbers decrease and herd immunity increases.  Because this illness is not completely eradicated, One Day Academy will continue with the ODA COVID Exposure Protocol.  Additionally, enhanced sanitizing procedures will remain in place on all campuses.   

PARENTS

WAIVER:  Parents will be required to complete a waiver acknowledging they are allowing their student(s) to attend in person classes on campus.  Parents will be advised on COVID symptoms and asked to keep their student(s) home if they are sick. This form will be available on the website, and in the orientation packet at ODA COVID Waiver.  This waiver must be on file at each campus the student attends.

​Waiver will include:​

  • Parental acknowledgement of the risk and the responsibility for having their student(s) on campus.​

  • Parental and Student(s) understanding and agreement to follow the guidelines given on campus. 

  •  As with any other sickness, parents will make sure that their child does not have a temperature before coming to campus.​

  •  Parents are to immediately inform the regional director and the student’s teachers if and when they become aware of their student(s) being exposed to COVID. In this event, they agree to keep the student(s) home until the risk of exposing others is past. Parents will be provided with a list of symptoms and asked not to send their student to campus if they have had an exposure to COVID or if they are not feeling well.  

 STUDENTS

  • Students are not required to wear a mask or to social distance from others.  Students may wear a mask on campus any time they wish.

  • Students are encouraged to wash hands frequently.​

  • Students who are sick or become sick should remain at home.  If parents become aware of their student’s exposure or positive testing for COVID, they will immediately alert the regional director and all of their student’s teachers. The regional director will be responsible for dispersing this information to all involved parties on campus.

 

 

 FACULTY/STAFF

  • Faculty and staff are not required to wear masks or to social distance from others. ​ 

  • Teachers will provide class materials to students who are forced to miss class for health or other reasons.  Teachers may do this by live-streaming the class, providing audio and print materials for the student, or by recommending an online class.​

  • Teachers will sanitize tables and frequently-touched surfaces often. 

  • Any staff who are sick or become sick should remain at home.  As soon as a staff member becomes aware of COVID exposure or positive testing for COVID, he/she should immediately alert the regional director and all of their students. The regional director will be responsible for dispersing this information to all involved parties on campus.

  • Any teacher that becomes ill should secure coverage (substitute or virtual) for any missed class or shift and provide students with any needed printed materials.

 BREAK ROOM SUPERVISION

  • Supervisors will wipe down tables and frequently touched surfaces in the break room and accessible areas often. ​

  • Supervisors will maintain the sanitizing stations on campus. Only supervisors will handle food items, and do so in a sanitary manner.
