Operations: health offices, cleaning protocols

Health Offices:

Our school nurses and teachers reinforced this etiquette and proper practice with students in our classrooms, regularly reminding students to cover coughs or sneezes, wash hands or use hand sanitizers. 

Our health offices have the necessary supplies (masks, gloves, etc.)  on hand, and have identified isolated areas to hold students with symptoms of any respiratory illness, including COVID-19.

We hope you trust that the district is doing everything we can to keep our staff, students, and community healthy and will post updates as quickly as possible.

Operationally:

The custodial staff cleans our classrooms, cafeterias, restrooms and offices daily. This also includes disinfecting touch surfaces like door or bathroom handles to help further reduce the likelihood of spreading illness. Their training incorporates proven techniques and equipment, as well as the latest cleaning chemicals.

Please ensure all surfaces are clutter-free at the end of each day to expedite cleaning. The custodial staff also ensures all hand sanitizing dispensers are filled regularly.
Staff clean of high touch areas
NEW: March 13: 

Our facilities staff will be modifying their current duties to place more emphasis on cleaning and disinfecting high traffic areas. Staff will be disinfecting touch surfaces multiple times per day through the hallways and bathrooms. We will be adding at least two staff members in targeted locations to assist with daytime disinfection. As they cannot enter classrooms during the day, the staff will also be disinfecting student desks and chairs every evening.

Spray bottles of disinfectant and microfiber clothes will soon be available from each building custodian, for all staff members who want them.  Instructions in proper use of those materials will be given when they are issued.

Transportation/School Buses:

Our transportation department also conducts a daily routine, in which bus drivers spray a disinfectant at the end of their runs. On Friday evenings, the entire fleet is thoroughly sprayed with a different disinfectant used by hospitals and daycare centers.
