To Fast Forward Parents, Students and Staff,
Fast Forward wants the school’s community to be aware that we continue to make student safety a top priority. With the recent developments regarding the COVID-19 Virus (Coronavirus) , we want our parents, students and staff to know we are addressing the issue. We do have a plan in place to respond to the pandemic.
Fast Forward is monitoring the progress of the virus very closely. We are working with Bear River Health Department, the Governor’s Office and the Utah Health Department to determine what steps need to be taken to best promote the health and safety of the students and staff. Should we need to close the school building that information will be shared using the same channels used for communicating snow days, attendance and general school community news (email, text, recorded phone messages, website update). Should the need arise to close the school, we are looking into different electronic schooling options.
The administration of Fast Forward also wants to stress the importance for students and staff to stay home when they are showing any signs or symptoms of being contagious. To prevent the spread of disease, students should not attend school when they are sick. The following signs and symptoms may indicate that a person has a contagious illness:
1) temperature of 100 degrees or higher2) vomiting within the past 24 hours3) diarrhea within the past 24 hours4) uncontrollable cough within the past 24 hours5) unexpected shortness of breath6) unexplained body rashes with itching or fever7) presence of lice or unexplained itching of the scalp8) suspected eye infection, including red, itching and/or drainage
All students and staff are expected to practice preventative actions as well . This includes proper hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes, and cleaning frequently touched surfaces. Our faculty is focusing on keeping our school clean and sanitary.
Again, we will closely be monitoring the situation and sending updates and making changes as necessary.
We are enforcing what Governor Herbert has recommended that no crowds of 100 or more congregate. So we will be postponing our Fast Forward Prom that was scheduled for Friday, March 13th. We want to thank our parents, students and staff for their cooperation moving forward. Should you have any questions, please reach out to our office staff at 435-713-4255.
