COVID-19 Update - March 16

Dear NACP Families,

Like you, we are all concerned about the spread of the novel coronavirus and the uncertainty it’s creating in our daily lives. We have been following the guidance of public health experts, the direction of LAUSD and that of the NEW Academy Board of Directors on how to keep all who are part of our school community safe. The appropriate path to take as we try to slow down the spread of virus is to close the school.

Effective Monday, March 16, NACP will be closed for two (2) weeks. We plan to reopen Monday, March 30, but that decision will depend on the circumstances at the time. School administration will be sharing additional updates and information as we receive it from the state, county and school district. Please check our website and social media for updates.

NACP teachers will provide home study plans or homework packets for each of our students. Please have only one member of your family stop by the school Tuesday, March 17 between 8:00am and 2:00pm. to pick up these packets.

Sincerely,

-Dr. Clara M. Guerrero
Principal


Estimadas Familias de NACP,

Al igual que ustedes, a todos nos preocupa la propagación del nuevo coronavirus y la incertidumbre que está creando en nuestra vida cotidiana. Hemos estado siguiendo la guía de expertos en salud pública, la dirección del distrito de LAUSD y la de la Junta Directiva de NEW Academy sobre cómo mantener seguros a todos los que forman parte de nuestra comunidad escolar. El camino apropiado a seguir mientras intentamos frenar la propagación del virus es cerrar la escuela.

A partir del lunes 16 de marzo, NACP estará cerrada por dos (2) semanas. Planeamos reabrir el lunes 30 de marzo, pero esa decisión dependerá de las circunstancias en ese momento. Los mantendremos al tanto de esos planes a más tardar el viernes 27 de marzo. Les administración de la escuela compartirá información actualizada a medida que la recibamos del estado, condado y el distrito. Por favor visite nuestra página de web y nuestros sitios en las redes sociales.

Los maestros de la escuela NACP proporcionarán planes de estudio o paquetes de tarea para hacer en casa a cada uno de nuestros estudiantes. Les pedimos que un solo miembro de familia pase por la escuela el martes 17 de marzo entre las 8:00a.m. y las 2:00p.m. a recoger el paquete.

Sinceramente,

-Dra. Clara M. Guerrero
Directora de NACP

Hygiene to Combat COVID-19/Flu

What can I do to keep myself and my child healthy?

General Reminders for staying healthy during the cold and flu season: To help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including the Coronavirus and Flu, follow these important tips:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Stay home when you are sick. As always, students, staff and campus visitors must stay home when ill with a cough or other flu-like symptoms (chills, fever, muscle aches, sore throat)
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Individuals with chronic health issues and/or individuals experiencing severe symptoms should be evaluated by a medical professional

How do we help prevent the spread of the virus?

It is recommended that when washing hands, wash them thoroughly for 20 seconds with soap and water. If soap and water are not readily available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. It is also recommended to cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue away in the trash. Clean frequently used objects and surfaces daily. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.

In addition, laminated posters with hand washing instructions and “cover your cough” are posted in classrooms throughout campus.

What are you doing about hand washing in school?

In an effort to continue to prevent the transmission of germs, our teachers have reinforced healthy hand-washing through lessons taught during morning meeting and advisory. Some hand-washing reminders you can share with your students are:

  • Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap
  • Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails
  • Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice
  • Rinse your hands well under clean, running water
  • Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them
