The document is on our school website under district. It is important to note that this plan was developed and posted on July 13, 2021, with the information and trends that were known at that time.
This is a living document and may change throughout the year as we get new information,
guidance from the CDC, Public Health Solutions, or what we are experiencing in our own county
and in each of our school buildings. We want to keep students and staff safe and at school, and
at the same time give them as “normal” of a school year as we can.
The following proactive mitigation practices will continue to be in place at the start of the 2021-
22 school year:
- Frequent Cleaning of high touch surfaces
- Promotion of good hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette practices
- Continuing to provide sanitizing stations at entrances and throughout the schools
- Requesting that students and staff continue to self-screen before coming to school each day.
- Requesting that parents of our younger students continue to screen them before sending them to school each day.
- Encouraging students and staff to stay home when they feel sick.
- Continuing contact tracing after a student or staff has tested positive.
- Complying with Public Health Solutions isolation and quarantine decisions
- Consideration for physical distancing in classroom layouts
The following are enhanced mitigation practices that may be needed if we see elevated risk in
our schools/communities, the increase in positive cases within our schools, or outbreaks.
Students, staff, and families would be notified of the potential changes listed below. These
could be implemented at a class, grade, or school level. These changes might not have to be
initiated district-wide depending on trends and current data. These enhanced practices would
be used in order to keep the school open.
- Required use of face masks
- Lunch table barriers
- Lunch schedules adjusted
- Cohorting students in indoor settings
- Postponement/Cancellation of assemblies, field trips, other large indoor non-extracurricular gatherings
- Temporary loss of lunch visitors, Teammates, other in-person visitors
- Increased spacing when possible
- Increased frequency of handwashing
- Activity temperature checks
As we continue to plan for different contingencies this year, we are hopeful that we can provide
our students and staff a safe and as “normal” of a school year as we can. You can really help us
by screening your students every day prior to sending them to school and having them stay
home when they are sick until you can rule out COVID 19.
Let’s have a great year!
