AdventHealth Helps Bayshore Christian School Safely Reopen for Students

AdventHealth Carrollwood has partnered with Bayshore Christian School in Tampa to provide an extensive safety strategy for safely reopening for class on Wednesday, August 12, 2020. AdventHealth provided the school with key strategies and implementation plans to assist the K-12 school in limiting the spread of COVID-19 in the classroom setting.

“We are taking extra steps in our hospital and in our communities to ensure everyone is safe as we navigate COVID-19,” said Erika Skula, President and CEO, AdventHealth Carrollwood. “By partnering with Bayshore Christian School we can provide these students, teachers and staff with best practices to create the safest environment possible as they return to class.”

AdventHealth Carrollwood clinicians assisted the school with a plan that would allow for all 220 students to return to the classroom. Some of the key strategies implemented include:

  • Enhanced student drop-off and pick up
  • Required temperature screenings
  • Enhanced prepackaged lunches

“As the Head of School at Bayshore Christian School, I am grateful to have the opportunity to work hand in hand with AdventHealth as a community partner,” Melanie Humenansky, Head of School, Bayshore Christian School. “This relationship validates the decision making of the school’s administration in confirming we are taking the right steps in keeping our students safe. The recommendations were openly received, and we have purchased the suggested additional items and look forward to implementing the processes for the opening of the school year."

AdventHealth is committed to the health and wellness of the community. AdventHealth Carrollwood has achieved 10 consecutive Leapfrog Grade A rankings and several Top General Hospital honors. The Leapfrog Group focuses on safety and lowering and eliminating infections in the hospital setting.
