Health and Safety Plan ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ of Universal City​​ PREK-12th​​ Grade

The Mission of First Baptist Academy of Universal City is to educate students for time and eternity by presenting God's truth in all areas of education and character development.

SCREENING AND MONITORING OF ILLNESS

We must all commit to supporting our community’s health and wellness and agree to keep our children, and ourselves​​ at home when we are not feeling well, have COVID-19 symptoms, or have potentially been directly exposed. ​​​​ Students, faculty, and visitors​​ should not​​ come to​​ school​​ if they are exhibiting any signs of​​ illness. ​​​​ 

Illness Presented

  • If a student or faculty member becomes sick at home with any symptoms, cough, fever, muscle aches, generally not feeling well, we ask that you notify​​ the school nurse Christine Ibera​​ by email​​ at​​ cibera@fbauc.com​​ with the following information: Student Name, Grade, Teacher and the reason for the absence. You may also call the school office at 210-658-5331 and ask for extension 308 providing the following information: Student Name, Grade, Teacher and the reason for the absence. If the student will be out for more than one day, you may request that homework be collected for pickup by the end of the day.​​ 

  • If​​ ​​ an illness is presented,​​ children and faculty may​​ return to FBA after these three things have happened:

    • No fever for at least 24 hours without the use of medicine that reduces fevers

    • ​​ Other symptoms have ceased (cough, shortness of breath, etc.)

    • ​​ At least 24 hours have passed since symptoms first appeared

  • A doctor’s note or parent note is required​​ upon return. Until the note is provided, the absence(s) will be marked​​ unexcused.​​ 

 

Confirmed COVID-19​​ 

Notify the school nurse, Christine Ibera, by email at​​ cibera@fbauc.com​​ with the following information: Student Name, Grade, Teacher,​​ and​​ the Confirmed Positive Results

 

  • For a student/faculty member who tested positive for COVID-19,​​ the following must happen to be allowed to return to campus:

    • It must be 10 days since the confirmed positive test or current CDC recommended time frame or​​ the​​ doctor instructed time frame​​ 

 

  • For a student/faculty member who has a member in their household that tested positive, the following must happen to be allowed to return to campus:

  • They must have already contracted COVID-19 in the last 3 months and/or been fully vaccinated OR

  • It must be 14​​ days since the confirmed positive test or current CDC recommended time frame​​ or the doctor instructed time frame​​ 

 

FACE COVERINGS

Facemask mandates have been lifted, but you may continue to wear a facemask if you should choose.​​ 

HANDWASHING AND HAND SANITIZER STATIONS

Hand sanitizer will be in each classroom, with additional hand sanitizer stations placed at numerous locations around campus. Handwashing​​ will be incorporated throughout the day.​​ ​​
