Campus Reopening Plan

Savannah Country Day School is committed to following federal, state, and local authorities as we reopen for the summer. Governor Kemp’s executive orders, the Centers for Disease Control’s guidance documents, and Georgia’s Department of Early Care and Learning directives form the base of our policy development for The Little School, Camp In Place, Athletic, and Ecology 2020 summer programs.

Savannah Country Day School will align our campus-wide summer safety policies with those set out by the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL) in its Interim Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Guidance for Day Camp Settings issued on May 12, 2020 and the CDC Activities and Initiatives Supporting the COVID-19 Response and the President’s Plan for Opening America Up Again issued on May 17, 2020 (please see pages 40-48 for childcare and camps). Our practices will focus on the following areas: 
  • Daily Health Checks
  • Drop-Off/Arrival and Pick-Up Procedures
  • Preventing the Virus from Entering our Facilities
  • Preventing the Virus from Spreading
  • Response and Management of Possible Infections
  • High Risk Individuals
The Little School and the summer camps will each follow additional processes unique to their situations to ensure maximum safety for all children, staff, and families. Those policies and procedures can be found to the right.
