Dear King’s Community,
Thank you for your cooperation as we work together to address this very serious and emerging situation with COVID-19. We continue to pray for those families in our region and around the world that have been impacted by COVID-19. Our hope and trust remain in the Lord as we walk together through this very difficult situation.
We want you to be well-informed about how King’s is responding to the situation as we seek the highest level of health and safety for our students and community.
- Additional efforts are being made to clean classrooms, common spaces and busses. Our teachers, bus drivers and custodial staff are working together to help keep these places clean and disinfected.
- Faculty members are preparing for the possibility that classes may need to be taught remotely if necessary.
Prevention is a top priority and there are ways that you can help.
- First and foremost, if your child or anyone in your family is experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 (fever, cough and/or shortness of breath) please stay home. We will work with students and families to make-up missed assignments and schoolwork. The health of each student and our community is paramount and is our highest priority.
- Please follow the recommendations of health experts to protect yourself. On campus, we will continue to stress regular hand washing, avoiding contact with others, covering your cough or sneeze, and avoiding touching your mouth, nose and eyes. These are some basic recommendations that can help to prevent the spread of germs. Today, our students were shown this video on proper hand washing techniques: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IisgnbMfKvI
Lastly, we will stay informed and keep you informed on new developments around COVID-19.
- King’s will be in communication with and will carefully follow all directives of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and King County Public Health (KCPH).
- We encourage everyone to stay current with the information available on the CDC’s website (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) and/or King County Public Health (https://www.kingcounty.gov/depts/health/communicable-diseases/disease-control/novel-coronavirus.aspx).
Thank you for your ongoing prayers and for your partnership as we seek God’s wisdom and direction as we address this matter.
