Our students and teachers’ health are our top priority.
Mighty Roots Academy will be meeting or exceeding all state and county health requirements.
Here is an outline of our plans:
Cleaning and Sanitizing -- We will continue a daily cleaning ritual paying extra attention to sanitization, clean surfaces, floors, bathrooms, and the buildings before academy days. Students and teachers wash their hands regularly.
Class Sizes and Building Capacity –- Class sizes are small for the 2020-21 academic year, so we can easily stay within capacity guidelines for all Jackson County and Missouri Recovery Phases.
Make-Up Days and Refund Policy –- Extra make-up days have been added to the schedule in case we are not allowed to meet due to a Stay-at-Home Order. We do not plan to do distance/online learning. Tuition will be prorated to credit any academy days missed due to government restrictions that are unable to be made up through scheduled make-up days.
Sickness -- At this time, students will not be required to wear a mask. This would only change if required by government guidelines. Temperature checks may be required depending on local guidelines. Our sick policy continues as it always has been - please do not send your child to Mighty Roots if they have or have had a fever in the past 24 hours. Please err on the side of caution to not introduce any illness to the academy.
