Illness Policy and COVID-19 Protocols
Ensuring the health and safety of our students and staff while providing a Gillen Brewer education remains at the heart of all decision making. Gillen Brewer has analyzed many scenarios and has taken into consideration the Federal and State Guidelines, Department of Health requirements, the school’s physical building and surrounding area, staff and parent surveys and feedback, and the needs of the students we serve.
As always, these policies are subject to change if numbers in the community spike or new research emerges showing elevated risk to children.
The COVID-19 Task Force
Gillen Brewer has created a COVID-19 Task Force to analyze all of the factors that need to be considered for safely operating in the school building. The COVID-19 Task Force consults with various experts and professionals in their relevant areas collecting data that focuses on several areas including legal, medical, business, building, environment, transportation, and sanitization. We have created a reopening manual with a clear plan that ensures the safety and health of our families and staff and takes into consideration our neighbors. In addition, we are in regular communication with the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees regarding all aspects of this crisis so that they are able to support the school in making necessary decisions. We are committed to providing the Gillen Brewer academic-therapeutic experience, and our first priority is the safety of our community.
