RESPONSIBLE REOPENING PLAN
ENSURING A SAFE LEARNING COMMUNITY FOR ALL
We warmly welcome our staff, students and parents back to school. We have missed all community members following the closure of all schools throughout Morocco, due to COVID-19, last March.
We recognize that there will be many questions that arise during these unprecedent times. Casablanca American School is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for its students. We are following and using all guidelines from the Ministry of Education and Health and CDC guidance to inform our practices in order to responsibly reopen our campus to students.
On August 26th, the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Health released guidelines for Schools to ensure a safe return for students and staff. We are working to ensure our information conforms to the mandated guidelines. Please note that some or all of the details in this document may change at any time depending upon unforeseen circumstances and future communication and direction from the Moroccan authorities.
The protocols that we have put in place are based on advice and direction from the Moroccan authorities and the Ministry of Education (MoE), in conjunction with the Center of Disease Control (CDC), as well as guidelines from worldwide organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO).
We have strictly followed the criteria set out by the MoE communicated to all schools. Our main priority is to keep students, parents and staff as safe as possible during the pandemic.
It is a parental decision whether one sends their child back to school for face-to-face instruction when it becomes permissible during this crisis. Please note that the Casablanca American School will take all reasonable precautions to ensure that the campus is safe and operating with the utmost regard for Covid-19 mitigation. At the same time, however, the school cannot be held liable if a student, parent or staff member contracts Covid-19.
Our detailed plans and protocols for a responsible reopening in the fall are laid out below.
