In preparation for returning students to the classroom safely, the air filtration system of each classroom and common area of the school were upgraded. Maximum capacity of each room was also calculated based on CDC recommendations and will be strictly adhered to.
All desks will be arranged to maintain the required 6 feet of social distancing and to ensure that all students are facing in the same direction. When students are working in small groups, teachers will assign specific spots for them, ensuring that social distancing is maintained at all times.
Student supplies will be kept in the classroom in individual boxes and will not be shared. If manipulatives are used within the classroom, they will not be shared amongst students. Each student will have their own. Books and other paper-based materials are not considered to be high risk for spreading the virus and will still be available for students in the classroom.
