Saber Kids and Saber Study (don't need)
Procedures, Protocols, and Schedule
After engaging with the same group of students for the school day, lower school students attending Saber Kids will soon be joining a new cohort. Prior to delivering students to Saber Kids, teachers will check the temperatures of all remaining students. Students with a fever of above 100 degrees, will not be permitted to participate and should go home until the fever returns to normal without medication for 24 hours. After dismissal, all remaining students will be delivered to their corresponding Saber Kids cohort by their homeroom teacher.
Cohort 1 - Pre-K and Kindergarten students will meet in an early childhood classroom in Founder’s Hall
Cohort 2 - 1st and 2nd grade students will meet on the playground
Cohort 3 - 3rd and 4th grade students will meet on the multi-purpose field.
Saber Kids teachers will check-in and check-out students using school provided iPads. Following check-in, students will be given an individually packaged snack. Saber Kids will follow the schedule outlined below.

Cohort 1 Classroom - Early childhood classroom in Founder’s Hall
Cohort 2 Classroom - LGI
Cohort 3 Classroom - Lower level classroom in Fuentez Hall
In the event of rain or inclement weather that prevents students from going outside, each cohort will report to their classroom for active games and/or a movie.
Parents should drive into the front circle drive, remain in their vehicle upon arrival, and call the front desk. The front desk attendant will summon the student(s). Lower school students will exit the front doors.
Similarly to lower school students, all middle school students remaining on campus after dismissal must have their temperatures checked before being dismissed from the classroom. Students with a fever of above 100 degrees, will not be permitted to participate and should go home until the fever returns to normal without medication for 24 hours. Those attending Saber Study should check-in with after school personnel on the main floor of Fuentez Hall. Students should maintain social distancing practices at all times.
Parents should drive onto Saber Way, behind the campus where middle school students are typically dropped off and picked up. Parents should remain in their vehicles and call their child directly or call the front desk to have their child summoned.

TEA Required Actions
Per TEA guidelines, if any individual who has been on campus is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19, SGCS is required to notify the local health department. The School will close off areas that have been heavily used by the individual with the lab-confirmed case (student, teacher, or staff) until the non-porous surfaces in those areas can be disinfected. All teachers, staff and families will be notified if a lab-confirmed COVID-19 case is identified among students, teachers or staff who participate in any on campus activities.
Close Contact Defined
Being within six feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period** starting from two days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, two days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated.
** Individual exposures added together over a 24-hour period (e.g., three 5-minute exposures for a total of 15 minutes). Contact tracing will occur after positive case identified.
Individual Returning to Campus
In the case of the individual who was diagnosed with Covid-19, the individual may return when all of the following requirements are met:
At least 24 hours have passed since recovery (resolution of fever without the use of fever reducing medications)
Improvement in symptoms (for example, cough, shortness of breath, etc.)
At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared
In the case of an individual who has symptoms that could be COVID-19 and who is not evaluated by a medical professional or tested for COVID-19, such individual is assumed to have COVID-19, and the individual may not return to the campus until the individual has completed the same three-step set of criteria listed above.
If the individual has symptoms that could be COVID-19 and wants to return to school before completing the above stay at home period, the individual must either (a) obtain a medical doctor –licensed in the state of Texas, note clearing the individual for return based on an alternative diagnosis or (b) receive two separate confirmations at least 24 hours apart that they are free of COVID-19 via acute infection tests at an approved COVID-19 testing location found at https://tdem.texas.gov/covid-19/. Home test kit results will NOT be accepted.
In the case of an individual who has no symptoms but has been exposed to someone with COVID-19, monitor for symptoms for 14 days, and receive a negative COVID-19 PCR test on day 1,4 and 7, following exposure to stay on campus. If symptoms arise at any point, follow protocols listed above for symptomatic illness.
