• Work and Learning Environments


    Classroom Configurations and Procedures 

    • Each classroom will be outfitted with the following:
      • Visual reminders of distancing requirements will be in all classrooms, marking off areas for common spaces and distancing best practices.
      • Refillable alcohol-based hand sanitizer stations
      • Access to disinfectant to sanitize working surface
    • Desks or tables will be socially distanced as much as instructionally possible. 
    • Group or pair work can be implemented while maintaining physical distancing. Facial coverings will be worn in grades 3-12 if group gatherings occur.

    • When possible, eliminate communal supplies. Shared supplies will be sanitized between use.
    • When possible, technology can be utilized when the use of manipulatives are needed. Teachers will consider assigning cohorts of student’s specific manipulatives in order to reduce the possibility of exposure or consider creating individual bags of supplementary aids and/or manipulatives for student use that could also be sent home in the event of school closure.
    • Whenever possible, students and staff will maintain consistent groupings of people to minimize the spread of the virus.
    • The recommended procedures will be applied to all classroom settings, including special education services locations when possible and appropriate. Students’ individual needs will be addressed on a case-by-case basis.

    Campus Protocols

    • All classroom configurations will be in keeping with the social distancing guidelines.
    • Each student desk will maintain a 6 foot distance in all classrooms.

    Common Areas 

    • Common areas include spaces that are used for meetings and collaboration. This includes computer labs, flexible spaces, campus libraries, conference rooms and other meeting rooms. 
    • Campuses will develop schedules and protocols for the use of common areas, including how to sanitize space between use. When needed, students will bring personal supplies from the classroom. All students and staff will be required to use hand sanitizer when entering and exiting common areas.

    Restrooms

    • Proper handwashing technique will be taught to all students and consistently reinforced. 
    • The scheduling of whole class restroom breaks is recommended to eliminate co-mingling of students across various classes and to ensure teacher monitoring of social distancing guidelines. 
    • A system will be implemented to identify the number of occupants utilizing each restroom to mitigate the chance of exceeding maximum occupants per social distancing. 
    • After a restroom break, students will be required to use hand sanitizer before reentering the classroom.

    • Restrooms will be closed during passing periods.
    • Students will need to have a restroom pass and restrooms will be limited to 1 female and 1 male student at a time.

    Transitions 

    When possible, the following protocols should be implemented:

      • Breakfast eaters will be specifically directed to the Cafeteria and Practice Gym as primary eating locations. 

    Dismissal 

    When possible, the following protocols should be implemented: 

    • Campus will designate staggered dismissal groups. Staggering the groups of walkers, car riders, bus riders and daycare students will help manage student movement in the building and decrease the risk of potential crowding outside at dismissal time.   
    • There will be bus procedures, based on campus specific needs.

    Campus Protocols

    When possible, the following protocols should be implemented:
