COVID-19 UPDATE 3/13/20:

Dear Sabis® International Charter School Families (SICS):

 

Although local and national news reports are focused on the new coronavirus known as COVID-19, please be advised that the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MA DPH) reports that the risk to residents in Massachusetts remains low.

Though MA DPH reports the level of threat of the new coronavirus in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is low, we understand that families have important questions regarding the recent outbreak in the United States and abroad.

Please be advised the SICS nursing staff have been in constant contact with the MA DPH, and the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to receive updates to help ensure that we are abreast of the latest recommended guidelines to protect the safety of our students and staff.  SICS building services’ staff who typically sanitize and disinfect our schools during cold and flu season, have been directed to intensify those efforts, especially in high-touch areas.

As is general practice during flu season, nurses have been steadily reminding students and staff to take precautions such as washing hands often and with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; covering your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze; avoid touching your eyes; and staying home if sick especially with a fever.

We understand that COVID-19 and its spread is an ever-evolving health concern and we will continue to closely monitor the situation.  Nationally, the CDC today issued a Travel Health Alert for all United States residents, instructing travelers returning from countries with a Level 3 alert (currently China, South Korea, Iran, and Italy) to stay home and monitor their health for 14 days after returning to the US.

We will rely on guidance from the health authorities referred to above as well as local adult and pediatric healthcare providers in dealing with any state or local impact of COVID-19.
