Checklist for in-person attendance:
Fill out the Health Screen between 5:00 - 6:00 pm on Wednesday evening prior to arriving on campus. Without passing this screen no one (including teachers/madrichim) is allowed on-premises.
All teens MUST wear a mask upon leaving the car.
If your teen is not feeling well, or is not feeling up to coming in person this week, you can log in to the weekly Zoom class during the in-person schedule.
Overall Guidelines while in person:
All in-person activities will happen outdoors including physical distancing, mask-wearing, and other relevant Covid safety protocols.
Programming could include hikes, yoga, art activities, games or discussion groups - anything that fosters community building but also easily enables social distancing and does not require touching.
Food: There will not be food or drink allowed during in-person Midrasha for the Spring session. CCM will not formally serve food as part of programming.
Teens cannot “drop in” without formal RSVP and signing of all required forms , waivers and/or health screening forms. (Use the "Health Scan" button on this page.)
ALL participants (teens and educators) wear masks at ALL times during CCM programming and maintain social distancing at a minimum of 6’ between individuals.
Groups of teens will not exceed 16 people total students plus educator/s per group, as per Contra Costa County Health services.
Teens and educators will have a health screening before “entering” the B’nai Shalom property which includes a temperature check.
Bathroom Plan: Students will be limited to one person at a time in the restrooms at B’nai Shalom.
Should a teen not follow health and safety guidelines, a parent will be immediately contacted for the teen to be picked up or asked to leave.
Should a teen or staff member become ill with Covid-19, contact tracing and communication via e-mail and phone will be sent to all teens in the relevant pod, as well as all staff.
