School Re-Closure Plan:

If confirmed cases occur within the classrooms or community, public health recommendations may dictate a temporary reclosure of our school for cleaning, disinfection.  Shining Stars will follow recommendations from Utah Health Department, the CDC, and Summit County Health Department regarding potential closures.  In the event of a closure, families will be notified via email and information will be on our website.  At this time, it is recommended that a school shut down for 14 days if 10% of the students/staff test positive for COVID-19 in a school with less than 150 people. 

·        If Shining Stars has to shut down for 14 days the building will be completely sanitized.  Teachers will prepare packets for students and daily activities/Zoom meetings will take place.  Tuition will still be charged during this time as teachers will be actively working to help educate students.

*The status of incidence will be determined by Summit County Health Department or the Utah State Health Department*
