2020-2021 Guidelines - COVID Information



  • The COVID Dashboard includes any student, teacher and/or staff members who are test-confirmed with a COVID-19 infection and participated in any on-campus activity during the previous Monday-Sunday.

    The dashboard will be updated on Mondays for the previous Monday-Sunday.  ACA is using this reporting timeline so that the data displayed in this chart will match that which a viewer can see in the state reporting system.

    The dashboard does not include remote learners who were not on campus.

    Notification Process

    When lab-confirmed cases are reported to the district, all staff and parents at the affected school will receive an emailed notification once contact tracing is complete. Due to state and federal privacy requirements, the name or details that may identify the individual cannot be released.

    • Close Contacts: Anyone determined to be a close contact will receive an individual notification with further instructions. If you are not directly contacted about you/your child being a close contact, then you/your child have not been identified as possibly exposed to a lab-confirmed positive individual and will not need to isolate or quarantine based on the information we received.
    • Contact of a Contact: Anyone who has been near someone who is identified as a close contact is considered a Contact of a Contact. This person has not been exposed and may continue activities as normal.
    • Note:  All members of the ACA community should be diligent and mindful of symptoms and isolate while contacting the campus if symptoms occur.  Seek the advice of your chosen doctor.

Academic Considerations

Operational Guidelines: Health and Safety

  • COVID SELF-REPORTING FORM: If an individual (parent, student or staff member) is determined to have symptoms of COVID-19, is medically advised to be suspected of having COVID-19, is lab tested and confirmed to have COVID-19, or has been in close contact (as defined in this document) with someone suspected or determined to have COVID; that individual should stay at home and self-report to the school for the sake of protecting our ACA community. ACA will take action to protect the identity of individuals according to laws that govern such information.
