Dear Parents, Students, and Staff,

We are writing to provide you with an update on quarantines and school schedule for students who were exposed to the positive COVID case at the Academy. The Onondaga County Health Department (OCHD) will have the ultimate say, but they are trusting us to make decisions in the meantime because they are over loaded. We hope to hear from the County on Monday or Tuesday this week. All decisions are made based on guidelines they have provided us. 

The following students/staff are under “mandatory” quarantine, meaning that we are confident quarantine will be imposed by the Onondaga County:

7th Grade—last exposure was Friday 12/4, last day of quarantine is 12/18, released on 12/19.

Drama students and staff—last exposure was Thursday 12/3, last day of quarantine is 12/17, released on 12/18. 

The following students are under “pre-cautionary” quarantine, meaning we are surer than not that quarantine will be imposed by Onondaga County. We are hoping to advocate that these students not be placed in quarantine: 

8th grade girls— last exposure was Friday 12/4, last day of quarantine is 12/18, released on 12/19. 

School schedule

Living Word Academy teachers will follow students’ typical, daily class schedule and hold class simultaneously via Zoom and in person. If you need a copy of your student’s schedule, please notify me or the school office. Bible class will start at about 8:50 each morning. Students do not need to Zoom for Phys Ed, lunch, or study halls.

Bro. Isaiah
