2022-2023 COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS

In response to the most current CDC recommendations, and in consideration of the health and safety of our community at large, all ACPA staff, students and visitors are advised to wear masks while in the building this fall.  Masks will be optional outdoors during school hours, including during lunch and recess.  ACPA administration will continue to pay close to attention to CDC guidance and will adjust this requirement accordingly.  In addition, all ACPA classrooms, offices and common areas are equipped with air purification devices.  There are hand sanitation devices throughout the building and we will continue with regular and increased surface cleaning of classrooms and common areas.

COVID-19 VACCINES

ACPA is asking that if you are vaccinated, to please share a copy of your vaccine card as required annual paperwork this year.  We are collecting this information in order to keep a count of the percentage of our population that is vaccinated to inform future decision making in regards to masks and other precautions.  We encourage eligible staff and students to get vaccinated as a further precaution to preventing the spread of COVID-19. Send a copy of your vaccine card to records@artcollegeprep.org or bring it to school on your next visit (first day of school or Orientation)

You can get a vaccine at most local pharmacies, through Franklin County Public Health (https://myfcph.org/health-wellness/shots/) or Columbus Public Health (https://www.columbus.gov/c19vax/).
