  • Students will be allowed to wear neck gaiters as a facial covering. Bandanas are not allowed as they are against the code of conduct.

Elementary School

  • Administrators will take their own temperature upon entering the building, daily.  Administrators will then take the temperature of the teacher aides as they arrive.
  • Directed teacher aides will pick up gloves, masks and a non-contact thermometer from the office every morning before attending to their stations, whether that is on a bus or at the entrance to the building.
  • Before entering the building, all students and staff will be required to wear a mask. If students do not have a mask, they will be provided one by the teacher aide at the entrance. If they refuse to wear a mask, they will be directed to participate in remote learning at their own residence. Upon entry to a bus or the school building, designated teacher aides will take temperatures of students entering.
  • All teacher aides will return unused masks and gloves to the main office at the end of their directed time.
  • Office secretaries will notify the School Business Manager when supplies begin to dwindle, so that additional supplies can be procured. 
  • Students and staff will maintain a social distance of at least 6 feet whenever possible and wear appropriate face coverings per CDC/DOH guidelines at all times. Mask breaks will be provided throughout the day at the teachers’ discretion.
  • Students will be able to remove face coverings while seated six feet apart in the cafeteria during meals. Students will be offered a periodic break from mask wearing when appropriate.
  • Breaks will be defined as at least a minute in duration and no more than two minutes. There will be a range of three to five breaks every day. Teachers will try to have these breaks outside. If breaks do occur in class, six foot distancing will be adhered to.
