Academy for Creative Learning is following closely any and all directives from the Waco-McLennan County Public Health District regarding our two staff members who tested positive for COVID-19. Both of them remain asymptomatic. Both of the cases were recently in direct contact with a positive case of COVID-19, which is the only reason they pursued testing. The moment we were informed of the two teachers testing positive, we identified and placed on quarantine the children who met the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s criteria for close contact for 14 days. The parents are keeping those children identified as close contacts in quarantine for two weeks.
ACL will also continue to stay on course with our own prevention strategies that we have been implementing since early March which are in line with directives from the CDC and local Health District. With COVID-19 on the rise, it is important that our school remain vigilant in all measures to keep your children safe.
Many have asked why we did not notify parents over the weekend. Our answer to that is we were waiting on clarification, as well as documentation of the positive results. Again, we are working with and following directives from the Health District. ACL did our best to inform our parents as soon as we received confirmation. Out of an abundance of caution, we took steps needed to ensure all of your children’s safety over the weekend by professionally sanitizing the entire building.
We will communicate with our parents the way we always have, letters handed personally to you at the front door, not via social media nor news outlets.
Please feel free to reach out to us with any concerns you may have. Your child’s safety will always remain our top priority.
