Social Distancing

The school has developed a plan with policies and procedures for maintaining social distancing of all students, faculty, and staff when on school facilities, grounds and transportation.

  • We will be installing barriers between students for snacks, lunch and other work times when necessary.

  • All work stations will be cleaned and disinfected between uses.

  • When walking from place to place, we will thread roping through 6’ pool noodles and lace tape between for children to hold.  Each taped section will have a particular child’s name so the same child will hold the same spot of the rope.

  • Each child will have personal belongings as well as school supplies and tools stored in his/her own bins.

  • One child will be allowed to use the restroom at a time. Disinfecting will occur after each use.

  • One way traffic will be implemented in the building.

  • Each child will be assigned a desk or space at a table.  Ex-lunch, snack time and work station time.

  • Work areas will be marked to ensure 6’ apart rule is followed.

  • Use of barriers between students at lunch time.

  • One staff member will use the teacher's desk and clean and disinfect after each use.

If social distancing of 6 feet cannot be maintained, proper face coverings must be worn in common areas such as hallways or school buses. For those medically unable to wear face coverings, the parents will be asked to provide a face shield for their child to wear.  

The availability of safe transportation and local hospital capacity in consultation with local department of health officials were considered in the development of this reopening plan.
