Masks:
 
The CDC currently recommends that anyone age 2 and older who is not vaccinated wear a mask while indoors. Any student, parent, teacher, or staff member who wishes to wear a mask will be encouraged to do so. At this time, Faith West Academy will not require anyone to wear a mask while indoors.

  • The FWA campus will be deep cleaned every evening.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the campus.
  • We will continue to provide space between student desks and at lunch.
  • FWA will continue to provide rapid COVID testing for students and staff.
  • We will continue to limit the number of visitors allowed on campus.
    • Parents/family members are allowed on campus for pre-planned volunteer activities
    • Parents/family members may attend chapel and sit in the balcony
 
 
COVID Mitigation Measures:
  • Students and staff should stay home when sick.
  • Any student or staff member with symptoms of COVID-19 will be required to quarantine at home for 10 days or test negative for COVID-19.
  • Any student or staff member who tests positive for COVID-19 will be required to quarantine at home for 10 days.
 
 
Quarantine and Contact Tracing
