- All Upper School Judaic teachers will conduct virtual classes on Google Meet in lieu of each regular class that day. Each virtual class + assignments should be equal in time to their normal classes (80 minutes on Monday-Thursday, and 35 minutes on Friday).
- How is a virtual class conducted?
- Teachers will email their students Google meeting invites for their virtual classes on Google Meet.
- The face-to-face component of each virtual class will last the first 20-40 minutes of the regularly scheduled period. That time will include review and new learning.
- The remaining 40-60 minutes of the period will be used for engaging activity to contribute to the lesson. This may be a collaborative project, online discussion, or some other activity that deepens the learning, at the discretion of the teacher.
- Each virtual lesson will be recorded for student and teacher reference.
- As long as a student is healthy enough to work, all students are expected to attend all of their virtual classes and complete all assignments given by their teachers, as they would normally.
- Students will be marked Present, Tardy, or Absent from each virtual class and will continue to receive grades from their teachers in Renweb for their assignments. Completed assignments will be emailed to teachers using students’ Beren Academy email addresses.
- If a student is unable to connect to the internet from home, the student and their parents must directly contact the teacher and appropriate principal to work out an alternative solution.

Public health and the community must work as partners to slow down the spread of COVID-19 and protect those who are most vulnerable. Individuals can lower their risk of contracting coronavirus disease by taking the same measures that are recommended to prevent the spread of the flu and other respiratory illness:
- Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Stay home when you are sick. Keep a sick child home from school to prevent spreading illness in the school and the community
If you feel sick and believe you may have been exposed to COVID-19, contact your healthcare provider (call before going), describe your symptoms, and travel history or contact with an individual who testing positive for COVID-19.
HCPH strongly recommends that people at higher risk of serious illness from COVID-19 should practice social distancing by staying home and away from large group settings and social gatherings where there will be close contact with others.
People at higher risk include people:
- Over 60 years of age. The risk and severity increase significantly with age. Persons over age 80 are in the highest risk category
- With underlying health conditions including heart disease, lung disease, or diabetes
- With weakened immune systems
Caregivers of children with underlying health conditions should consult with healthcare providers about whether their children should stay home. HCPH understands that public health actions may disrupt individuals’ lives and we are asking for the public’s understanding and support of practicing social distancing to slow community spread.
HCPH advises the public to call their local health department for questions as information and guidance may vary. Regional resources for both clinical-related questions and general questions about the virus are available below:
