As-salaam-u-alaikum,


As you are likely aware, on Wednesday, March 11th, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) gave a press conference updating the country on the current status of the coronavirus (COVID-19), as a global pandemic and what steps should be taken moving forward. We wanted to share with you some of the steps our school is taking to prevent the spread of illness across our campus, and plan for the possible spread of the coronavirus in our community. 

The LA County Department of Public Health has determined that there is no immediate public threat in Los Angeles at this time. However, given how quickly the global situation is evolving, we are monitoring new developments and will continue to reevaluate our steps and actions daily. 

In the meantime, the most effective way to stay healthy and minimize the spread of infectious disease is to follow basic health best practices like: 

- Enforcing great hygiene, like washing hands thoroughly and covering up coughs/sneezes.

- Asking all students who are feeling ill to stay home until they recover.

- Please do not bring children with a fever to school.
Our community is prepared to alter our procedures and planning should the situation change. We are also thinking ahead regarding the impact upcoming school trips, and other non-typical school activities will have in the context of the coronavirus. We will communicate any changes affirmatively when the time is appropriate. 
It is important to remember that handling the spread of a serious contagion like the coronavirus is primarily a task for public health agencies. Any directives from the World Health Organization, CDC, or local governmental organizations should be followed. 
In times like this, we are particularly grateful for the strength and togetherness of this community. Please continue to look for further communications from us on this matter.

Sincerely,
Mayeen Farooqui

Principal, ICC Community School
