Covid 19

WHO/Europe | Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak

As of Dec. 17, 2021, we have had only 1 case of Covid on the campus and this was in April 2021. This means that only one student came to school with Covid. He tested positive after his attendance. We followed protocols and no one else got sick.

Masks are optional. We suggest that you use an N95 mask if you chose to wear one as these are the only ones that work. If your child is wearing a paper mask or a cloth mask, studies have shown that these do not work. Many children who wear these types of masks are miserable at school. If your child wears a mask at school, we will cooperate with you and encourage your child to wear the mask.

Thank you to our families for NOT sending sick students to school. You have helped us keep our campus safe!

We will continue our cleaning protocols and encourage students and faculty to stay home if sick. 

 

HEP TX Covid-19 Cleaning Protocols

HEP TX has hired 2 staff members to take over the job of keeping the school clean and sanitized. We are instituting some changes with our cleaning procedures to keep your family safe while at school.

Definitions

  • Community facilities such as schools, daycare centers, and businesses comprise most non-healthcare settings that are visited by the general public outside of a household.
  • Cleaning refers to the removal of dirt and impurities, including germs, from surfaces. Cleaning alone does not kill germs. But by removing the germs, it decreases their number and therefore any risk of spreading infection.
  • Disinfecting works by using chemicals, for example EPA-registered disinfectants, to kill germs on surfaces. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs. But killing germs remaining on a surface after cleaning further reduces any risk of spreading infection.

All classrooms are being cleaned and disinfected after classes. This means desks, chairs, and common areas are cleaned with disinfectant.

Common areas such as the lunchroom tables and chairs are also being cleaned and disinfected after usage.

When necessary, HEP TX will use a germ bomb to disinfect and kill germs. This Germ Fogger kills the following viruses: Corona-virus/Rhinovirus; HIV 1; Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 & 2, Flu, and Norovirus. 

It kills the following Bactericides: C Diff; E.coli, Staphylococcus/MRSA, Salmonella and Streptococcus.

It also kills ringworm, athlete’s foot, and jock itch.

We want you to feel that your students are safe at HEP TX. We will do our best to provide a clean and disinfected facility for your children.
