Department of Health & Agency of Education Guidelines
We take the physical health and well-being of students and our community very seriously. In order to open school safely, we have to follow certain rules and guidelines from the Department of Health & Agency of Education.
Based on these guidelines we are planning for the following adjustments for the upcoming school year:
Students will be required to have their temperature screened prior to riding on the bus.
Students will be required to wear masks and physically distanced while on the bus. Members of the same family can be seated together.
All students and staff will be required to wear masks at school.
Students will stay with their classes all day, even during meal times.
Students and staff must maintain safe physical distancing.
We will need to limit the public from entering the school. Those entering school will have temperature taken and be asked screening questions. If sick, students and adults must be sent home.
Sick children or adults are required to stay home.
