COVID-19 INFORMATION, SCHOOL POLICIES and PROCEDURES
Eastbrook Academy strives to provide a safe, healthy and equitable in-person learning environment for our students, staff and families. As a school we want to be wise in our continued COVID response.
The Administration team has sought God’s direction at each step and that will continue. We will continue to trust God for his provision and protection. The health and well being of our students, staff and families will continue to remain top priority. This plan will seek to give families autonomy in determining what is best for their children while also balancing the need for safe distancing and risk mitigation at the school.

Symptom monitoring/Testing – Students will need to stay home for symptoms and students and siblings will need to stay home while awaiting COVID test results

Continued COVID enhanced operating procedures for cleaning, frequent hand washing, and other risk mitigation will continue to be in place.
Eastbrook Academy reserves the right to adjust this plan, such as in response to our experience, community spread of COVID19 or due to mandates set forth by either the City of Milwaukee, Milwaukee Health Department, State or Federal government.
