Eastside Academic Studies

 

Announcement: *** Important Eastside Fall Class Procedures ***

Parents and Students,

We are looking forward to the beginning of this school year next week.  Below is information about the procedures at Eastside for the next several months.  Please be patient as we try to work things out to make Eastside as safe as possible for everyone. 

Temperature Checks

Students, please do not come to class if within the past 72 hours you or any member in your immediate household has experienced any of the following symptoms: cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, loss of smell/taste, muscle pain, chills, sore throat, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, a temperature of 100F or greater or if in the last two weeks you or anyone in your immediate household has experienced any known exposure to Covid-19 including visiting, cohabiting, or being in close contact with anyone who has tested positive for the virus or has symptoms of the virus.

As I have mentioned in my previous emails, we will be taking the temperature of everyone entering the building.  Parents, please stay around in the event that your student has a temperature over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.  If a student has a temperature above 100 after two tests, he or she will be sent home.

Mondays: Since there are only a few classes on Mondays, the teachers will check the student’s temperatures upon their arrival.

Tuesdays: On Tuesdays, the temperature checks will take place at the entrance to the Youth Building which is the only entrance open on Mondays and Tuesdays. 

Thursdays: On Thursdays, the temperature checks will take place at the entrance to the Youth Building and at the Fellowship Hall entrance.  However, the doors to the Youth Building will be locked 15 minutes after the class period begins.  Therefore, any late students will have to enter the building through the Fellowship Hall doors and have their temperatures checked there;
they can then proceed down the hall to the other end of the building to their class.


Social Distancing


We are making every effort to keep at least 6 ft distance between fellow students and teachers at all times. 
Students will line up to enter the building 6 ft apart while waiting for their temperature checks. Then, students will be seated in the classrooms at least 6 ft apart.  We will not have more than two people in the restrooms at a time. Students are asked to maintain the 6 ft distance as they are walking to and from classes.  We will not have students congregating together without being socially distant. 


Masks

Everyone is required to wear a mask or face shield in the hallways and in the bathrooms.  Students are required to comply with the teachers’ mask policies within the classrooms.


Sanitizing

Students will use hand sanitizer, provided by parent donations, upon entering the building.  Students are asked to use sanitizer throughout their time in the building.  Eastside will be purchasing cleaning supplies for the teachers to wipe down the tables between classes.


Water


The church's water fountains are off limits due to COVID-19.  We are therefore asking students to bring their own water bottles to use while in the building.


Lunch

Students will be able to bring their lunches and eat from 12:15 – 12:45 as usual.  However, lunch will take place in the third period classrooms or in the Study Hall if a student is signed up for the third period Study Hall.   We are asking all other students to leave the building after the second period classes are over. Students should bring lunches that do not need to be microwaved.


Room Locations and Contact Information:

You will enter through the doors on the ends of the building, not at the church office entrance. The classroom numbers are found in the course descriptions and on the
Weekly Schedule on the Eastside website.  The FH classes are located on the side of the Fellowship Hall with the entrance from the Lawrenceville Highway parking lot.   All of the other classes are held in the Youth building that has its entrance on the other side of the building under the portico. Steinman Hall is on the first floor and the other classrooms are on the second floor. There is a Facility Floor Plan in the About Us section of the website.

Study Hall will be held in the open space on the second floor of the Youth building on Tuesdays and in the Fellowship Hall on Thursdays.

Please do not call or drop off items for students at the LAC office.  You can call my cell phone number – 404-408-4504 - if you have any questions regarding the facility or Eastside activities.


Student Drop Off and Pick Up

Students should be dropped off at least 15 minutes before the beginning of class in order to go through the temperature check 6 ft apart.  Parents should not leave until students have had their temperatures checked.  Students must be picked up within 15 minutes of the end of class.  Parents may be charged if students are consistently not picked up within that time.
