In the Classroom
We have been preparing for students to return. These preparations have caused schools and classrooms to look a little different than your student may recall or be used to. To help your student prepare, please review the changes below and discuss with them what may be different about school and what may be the same. Change can cause increased anxiety for students. Contact your school office for additional resources and assistance.
- Student seating in the classroom has been set up to maximize separation during the instructional day. Teachers will help your student find their seat and explain why it is important for us to be physically distanced.
- Plexiglass barriers have been installed for staff members who interact with the public on a more frequent basis such as school offices, cafeteria spaces and counseling/school psychologist offices. Plexiglass barriers may also separate students seated at a table.
- Some classrooms may have had furniture removed or moved in a new way.
- The number and location of sanitization stations (hand sanitizer) has been increased throughout buildings and classrooms. Students and visitors are asked to sanitize hands when entering the building, entering and/or exiting a classroom space.
- You or your student may notice signage on public seating or in the classroom that denotes where you or your student can or can't sit or stand so we are able to maintain 6 feet of separation.
- Safety signage has been strategically placed in classrooms and throughout the building to reinforce healthy hand hygiene, social distancing reminders, and currently known symptoms of COVID-19.
