Health & SaFety INFORMATION
Epiphany School's priority is the health and safety of our community. Below are the current health and safety measures we have implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, based on guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Washington Department of Health (DOH). Since CDC and DOH release information regularly, we will be continually reviewing our protocols, communicating with families, and updating this web page as needed.
The policies and procedures listed below are in addition to or in some cases supersede some or all of certain sections of the 2022-2023 Family Handbook. Please let us know if you have any questions or clarifications.
Operational decisions about Epiphany School's program, calendar, and campus plan are typically made by the Head of School with input from our Leadership Team, faculty, and staff. Given the scale, quality, and quantity of decisions amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we are grateful to have had considerable additional input from key groups, including the board of trustees, the Epiphany School Pandemic Advisory Team (made up of experts in the fields of law, technology, medicine, public health, and epidemiological research), and research, guidelines, and guidance from Public Health - Seattle & King County; the Washington State Department of Health; the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); the Washington Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI); the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS); and Northwest Association of Independent Schools (NWAIS).
