Our Response to Coronavirus
Our world is being inundated with the coronavirus at this time. Many are afraid of this disease. At ViewPoint, we are not fearful. We want to be faithful. The students have learned that God has not given us the spirit of fear, but rather of power, love and the ability to stay rational in the middle of a difficult time (2 Timothy 1:7).
Here is what we are doing at ViewPoint to keep ourselves healthy.
· We are maintaining a regular schedule of cleaning and sanitation by keeping disinfecting wipes available and using them on keyboards, mice and regularly used surface areas.
· Regular use of disinfectant spray on all student offices and heavy traffic areas and common touch areas (door knobs, light switches, etc.)
· We are encouraging frequent hand washing as well as keeping a supply of hand sanitizer available.
If your child is sick with a cold or flu-like symptoms then please keep them at home. Due to the workload on doctor’s offices and hospitals, a doctor’s note is not required to return to school.
Dr. Rondeau participated in a conference call with the Massachusetts departments of education and public health to stay informed about protocols that are being suggested for schools in the state of Massachusetts and ViewPoint is staying within their recommendations and guidelines.
Any parents that feel uncomfortable with sending their child to school should contact the office about working from home. Our program is very conducive to this and we are willing to work with you in this regard. In the event that a school closure is necessitated, our students will not lose out on their education. We will continue to work within our system for effective distance learning.
ViewPoint is very well equipped for such a situation with our Ignitia and if you are aware of other families that would benefit from their child enrolling in our program for the remainder of this year, please do not hesitate to reference them to our website or to give us a call. Education of our children does not need to stop because of the coronavirus.
The most important thing we can do at this time is to trust God because He is in control. It is no coincidence that our students memorized Psalm 91 during the month of February. Its words are very comforting during troublesome times, and I will end with a selected passage here. God bless. By the grace of God ~ Dr. Adam Rondeau
Psalm 91:1-7 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. (2) I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. (3) Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. (4) He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. (5) Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; (6) Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. (7) A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
