Now more than ever, it is going to take our village looking out for one another to create a successful and safe Camp Farmstead for all. As COVID-19 continues to play a factor in our operations, we reserve the right to adapt our COVID-19 response plan to be more stringent or less stringent as the Farmstead sees fit to best protect our students, staff and families. Our commitment is that should there be a change it will be shared swiftly and transparently. The CDC has named four stages levels of community transmission; Low, Moderate, Substantial, and High. Below, we will go over what all each of these stages levels mean in regards to the Farmstead. All Stages:Any student who is on campus and shows signs and symptoms of a cold, will be asked to wear a mask for the remainder of the day. Should a family want to opt out of their child wearing a mask, they will be notified and required to come pick up their student within 45 minutes of the initial call from the Farmstead. Anyone who registers a fever of 100 degrees fahrenheit will be removed from the group and sent home. Families will be notified and required to come pick up their student within 45 minutes of the initial call from the Farmstead. Families are required to stay in the parking area during pick-up and drop-off.Everyone coming to campus washes hands with soap and water before coming up to the school yard.Everyone is to have a mask in their cubby or backpack daily at all times. In the unlikely event that students will need to be inside the building due to safety concerns like lightning, everyone will be required to wear a mask. Sanitize or clean hands after all coughs in hands and fingers in faces (nose picking, thumb sucking).Sanitize hands before going into the school house.Initial here*
******masks need to have 3 layers of fabric or be surgical grade. No buffs, bandanas, or valved masks are allowed.******* Initial here*
Students whose families have been notified for a pick-up will be kept socially distanced from other students and be offered books and coloring materials while waiting for their families. Initial here*
LOW: No students, staff, or families need to wear masks* while on campus, regardless of vaccine status.Initial here*
MODERATE: All vaccine-eligible, unvaccinated patrons of the Farmstead will need to wear a mask* on campus.Students, staff, and families who are fully vaccinated do not need to wear a mask.Initial here*
SUBSTANTIAL:All staff will be masked regardless of vaccination status.All families at pick-up and drop-off will be masked regardless of vaccination status.Students who are fully vaccinated do not need to wear a mask.Initial here*
HIGH: Everyone on campus, regardless of age or vaccination status, will be required to be masked while at the Farmstead; inside or outside.Initial here*
Exposures and Closures:Should the Farmstead become aware of possible exposure, we will start testing the potentially exposed staff and they will remain off-site until negative test results are submitted. This will likely mean that Farmstead will be closed until those test* results come back if it is a large portion of our teaching staff as we would not be able to cover our teacher-to-student ratio. Staff, families, and students who have potentially been exposed will be required to remain off campus while waiting for test* results from our community. If all tests come back negative, potentially-exposed students will be welcome to return to the Farmstead the school day following the arrival of the last negative test result. If a staff, family, or student is sick enough with signs and symptoms for COVID so much that they want to get tested, they will be required to remain off campus while waiting for test* results from our community. If all tests come back negative, potentially-exposed students will be welcome to return to the Farmstead the school day following the arrival of the last negative test result. Families who are exposed or potentially exposed to COVID or notice signs and symptoms of any of the variants of COVID-19 are required to share any and all relevant information with Asheville Farmstead School’s Executive Director, in an effort to protect our community. Students and families who share information about exposures and illness will remain anonymous in communications with our broader community.All testing results will be communicated as swiftly and transparently as the situation permits to those who are in programming at that time.If the local, state or federal government states that we need to close for a lockdown, we will follow their guidance. *The only test that the Farmstead accepts is a PCR test.*Initial here*
