Frequently Asked Questions:
Is it safe to come to school?
What is the school district doing to prepare for the possibility of confirmed cases of the new Coronavirus?
District leadership has been and continues to meet regularly to define protocols and operational strategies in the event of school closure due to an outbreak of the virus in our community.
What preventative measures are the school district taking to prevent the spread of the virus?
Our custodial staff has been directed to clean and disinfect solid surfaces daily using best practices as described by the CDC. Examples include disinfecting high-touch surfaces, common areas, desks, countertops, restroom fixtures, door hardware, and handrails.
What other health precautions are necessary for your schools and support buildings?
Are you allowing students who have traveled regionally or internationally to come back to school when they return home?
Yes. Unless a student is ill or has received a diagnosis, we cannot exclude them from attending school. We ask all parents who are going to keep their child home from school to describe the illness and symptoms when calling the school to report the absence.
If there are school closures, are you going to offer distance or e-learning?
