Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences
On March 8, Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences welcomed students to campus in the kindergarten through the 6th grades. Although K-2 has been on campus in the past, now we also welcome half of the students in the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grades for on-campus learning. Students in the 3rd-6th grade will be on campus in half groups with the hope of extending the in-person offering to the entire grade in the near future. The K-5th grades will be on campus Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Elementary School afternoon classes will be provided virtually to students. Half of the sixth-grade class will be on campus the week of March 8 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. On March 15, we will offer on-campus classes for the full sixth grade.
To maximize the safety of our community, Crossroads has developed a relationship with PathMD Labs. Through that partnership, all on-campus employees are tested at Crossroads weekly. In addition, PathMD Labs will prioritize testing for Crossroads families. All students are required to have a negative PCR-based test at least seven days prior to coming on campus. Weekly testing is required for all staff and students who are on campus regularly. If students or staff are exposed to a positive COVID-19 case they are required to report it to the school and quarantine for a minimum of 10 days per Crossroads policy. If students or staff test positive, they are required to isolate for 10 days, be free of fever for 24 hours without fever reducing agents and have improving symptoms as per County guidance.
The following protocols are in place for students returning to the Norton Campus in February. As students arrive, they will need to show the digital Magnus application on their device as well as their negative COVID test. Afterward, their temperature will be taken prior to admittance to school.
All students and adults are required to wear a mask at all times on campus. Crossroads has offered masks and shields for any staff member who requests it. Students will shift between indoor instruction and outdoor instruction, where each grade is assigned a location that allows for six feet of social distancing. As observed during our on-site inspection, signage is located throughout the campus, as well as hygiene stations and partitions where necessary, to ensure safe movement throughout both campuses.
In addition to students in the kindergarten through the 6th grade, Crossroads will welcome small groups of students in the 7th through the 12th grade. These groupings will not exceed 25% of our population. We will maintain the required cohorting and will rotate across the grades to address social-emotional and academic needs. These cohorts will be spread throughout both campuses, fields and remote locations.
