The health and safety of the students, staff, and community is Reavis’s top priority, so I want to share information that the US Department of Education (message below), Illinois Department of Public Health (hyperlink below), the Stickney Township Health Clinic (attached flyer), and our insurance carrier EBC Blue Cross/Blue Shield (attached flyer) has published for schools. The good news is that the health risk to the general public from coronavirus remains low. Currently, the IDPH recommends schools hold classes and events as usual, and follow routine cleaning and disinfecting procedures.
The good news is that the health risk to the general public from coronavirus remains low. Currently, the IDPH recommends schools hold classes and events as usual, and follow routine cleaning and disinfecting procedures.
All of these organizations recommend the best way to protect against coronavirus is by taking the same everyday precautions against getting sick in general.
• Washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
• Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.
• Staying home when you are sick.
• Covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
• Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces.
Please do your best to reinforce the precautions with your fellow students, staff members, and families. To see the complete list of recommendations to schools from IDPH, please click here. The Reavis Administrative Team will continue to closely monitor recommendations regarding coronavirus, work closely and collaboratively with the Stickney TWP Health Clinic, and will update you as soon as there are any significant changes in recommendations for schools.
