TFA STAYING WELL TOGETHER – 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR (8/17/2020)
Since research has shown that the transmission of COVID19 and other viruses is predominantly airborne, TFA has added MERV13 air filters to campus air ducts, HEPA filter machines that will run all day, and reversable fans for better ventilation in every classroom. These items are used in hospitals to lessen virus particle exposure from the air. Additional outdoor sinks for handwashing have also been added in both courtyards.

STATEMENT REGARDING COVID-19
During this time, The Foundation Academy’s top priority is the safety of our students and staff members. It is important to be able to evolve and respond in real-time to the situations surrounding COVID-19. Our policy is subject to change as we evaluate any situation we encounter. We will remain transparent in our notification process, so you are able to make informed decisions when sending your student to The Foundation Academy.
Our contact tracing policy regarding a positive test or a suspected positive is the following:
• Student/Staff member notify us of symptoms and we immediately require isolation and testing and a 14-day quarantine. After a negative test, Student/Staff may return to campus.
• A positive result or a suspected positive result requires all students/staff members with contact of this student to be tested.
• Upon confirmation of positive result, the school goes through a complete sanitation process that involves every surface. This is in addition to our regular sanitation that happens during the day and the deeper cleaning at night.
