Reopening

  • How will “local health conditions” be assessed and by whom?

    Posted by:

     

    We anticipate that the State will soon develop criteria that will include a “risk dial” from low through high for schools to follow depending upon identified “phases” of the virus’ severity in each local area. This should provide guidance and direction regarding appropriate conditions,  practices and procedures.

    We are committed to safely opening on time if it is permitted and advised by Governor and local Panhandle Public Health. Local health conditions will dictate this decision when we are closer to opening day, August 17.

  • How is the school working to provide a safe environment?

    Fiscally prudent safety enhancements and improvements are being made to each facility. Examples include sneeze guards, bottle fillers, electro-static commercial sprayers, isolation rooms for symptomatic students, additional temporary para position at each school to address Covid-related needs, additional health clinic staff, additional thermometers and PPE. All procedures and schedules are being reviewed with multiple contingencies and alternatives.
