The health and safety of our students and staff is of our utmost concern. Please rest assured that we are working diligently to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 infection and transmission. All areas of the IC practice social distancing and follow CDC, state and local guidelines.
We have instituted the following protocols and policies to help prevent potential exposure:
We have increased the air flow throughout the building and are using 100% fresh air in the pool area, hallway, locker rooms and Education Station. You may notice that the temperature inside is a little cooler than normal due to the fresh air intake.
