Welcome to a new year at STEPS!
A little bit of information about the 2021-2022 school year:
The guidance we have received is that STEPS runs on its original schedule of 5 days a week, in-person, full days (except early release on Tuesdays at 12:00pm). If this were to change we will notify all families immediately.
Per the guidance, masks will be required at all times except when eating during break or lunch.
Attached you will find student and staff flow chart guidance identifying that we are to send any student home with any one sign or symptom of illness.
This is a change from last year. There are no longer A and B symptoms. Please review the student flow chart and let us know if you have any questions.
It is especially important that we have up to date emergency contact information. Students who show a sign or symptom of illness will be isolated and required to be picked up from STEPS within 30 minutes.
Students will also be required to fill out a daily health attestation before they arrive at STEPS online.
STEPS will be asking students of their vaccination status and will require a copy of the vaccination card if the student has one. Students can take a picture and email it to their case manager.
We are working to identify opportunities to go out into the community as well as working with our job sites to identify health and safety requirements for students to obtain non-paid internships.
We will keep all families updated with any further information or guidance.
A quick reminder: Our first day of class is Tuesday, August 31st. If you have not heard from your district regarding transportation by Friday, please contact them directly.
We have also attached a copy of the 2021-2022 STEPS calendar.
We are excited to start a new year with STEPS returners and welcome our new STEPS students!
