Dear School of Science and Technology Family,
With Spring Break in full effect, we want to reassure you that we are working diligently at the School of Science and Technology (SST) District to stay updated on the latest developments, related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our area. We have partnered with our city and state officials in order to obtain any breaking information that should be shared with the public, and most importantly with our SST families. Transparency is of the utmost importance and we want to make sure that we keep all of you updated. As of right now, there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in any of our SST campuses, however we have ordered that all of our SST campuses be deep cleaned and sanitized over spring break.
In the event of a confirmed case that affects our SST school(s), we have response plans in place that will guide our next steps. SST is prepared for numerous scenarios, and we realize each case will have unique circumstances. First, we will determine who is involved in the case and then take the next steps necessary per our local and state officials. There are many factors to consider before deciding what action to take. Important points to remember.
If any student is asked by Metro Health to self-quarantine, we will support them by providing study materials so students can work from home.
Custodial teams are prepared with decontamination equipment and will work around the clock as needed.
Plans for alternative instruction will be issued in the event of a closure for the entire school.
Any closures or other pertinent information related to SST will be emailed, posted on ParentSquare, and social media. This is where you will find accurate, reliable information. Please use your best judgment if you see concerning information on another site and reach out to us to get the facts.
***** IMPORTANT TRAVELING INFORMATION *****
For families who might be traveling internationally during spring break, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is a great place to review travel bans and warnings. You can get important recommendations and travel advisories at the CDC website.
