Fishes and Loaves Vocational and Literacy Center (FLVLC) has created a plan to assist families and staff as we navigate operating our programs during the COVID-19 pandemic. While no public entity can ensure the absence of COVID-19 in its buildings and in its activities, the FLVLC is working diligently to reduce the impact of COVID-19 (as feasible).
The procedures are to protect the well-being of students and staff, to establish a sense of normalcy, and to provide instruction and support services for students. The guidelines referenced in this plan are based upon guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH). This plan is fluid as the situation with COVID-19 changes from day to day. Regular updates will be made to this plan based on information provided by the CDC, IDPH, and applicable federal, state and local agencies.
STUDENT SCREENING AND PROTOCOLS: To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the potential risk of exposure to employees and students, students will participate in a touchless temperature reading each morning before entering the building. Students that have a fever of 100.4 or higher will immediately be sent home.
If prior to a class or meeting, a student feels ill or that they may have come in contact with COVID-19, they must contact the staff immediately and re-schedule their appointment.
In order to minimize exposure to COVID-19, PPE may be needed to prevent certain exposures. PPE can include: Masks/Facial Coverings: Face masks/facial coverings are an important part of employee and student protection, as well as personal hygiene, social distancing, and frequent cleaning efforts.
