COVID POLICY UPDATE FOR The Banner School:

As the understanding of coronavirus is changing, Banner will update its safest practices as guidance evolves. We will be responsive to local infection rates and to actions that may be necessitated.

Effective August 16, 2021, masks will be required in all classrooms and common areas for all faculty, staff, students, and guests regardless of vaccination status. This is in keeping with most recent recommendations from the CDC.  We encourage vaccination of all students who are old enough to be vaccinated. Masks will not be required when outdoors, and outdoor classes and activities will be encouraged whenever possible. Please note that buses are considered indoor space.

Parents will complete an online health check prior to their students’ daily arrival and temperature checks will be done prior to students exiting their vehicles.  All staff will also complete a daily health check prior to arrival.  Guests will check in at the main office and will be screened as well. A more detailed daily response is included in the link below.  This is an ever-changing global event, and as information and conditions change, updates may come.
