STATE GUIDELINES FOR PHASE THREE
BUS OPERATIONS: State guidelines are 75% of manufacturer's capacity.
MAXIMUM GROUP SIZES: State guidelines are no more than 50 people including a teacher/staff member in a classroom. Individuals to maintain 6-feet of spacing to the greatest extent possible.
FREQUENT HAND WASHING: Handwashing/hand sanitizer is recommended at arrival, at least every two hours, before and after eating, before and after using outdoor play equipment, and at exit.
FACE COVERINGS: Face coverings are required to the greatest extend possible for adults and third graders and above while inside school facilities. Individuals with severe breathing difficulties should not wear face coverings.
SYMPTOM MONITORING: Assess students on arrival and throughout the day, including conducting an initial temperature check.
ATHLETICS: Contact/high-risk sports are allowable within defined groups.
ASCENSION PROCEDURES FOR PHASE THREE
Our goal for Phase Three is to serve all students in our buildings as frequently as possible. We believe we can achieve this on a daily basis at all primary schools. Our larger schools may serve students on-campus in alternating schedules and through online learning. Details of these schedules may vary by school.
Buses will likely run regular routes for middle and high schools. Primary schools may still require multiple routes.
Temperatures will be checked every day by first period. Students will be given several opportunities to wash hands and/or use hand sanitizer throughout the day.
We have learned that the actual distancing of students is unique to each classroom and class setting. There are many situations where students are less than 4 feet apart when class sizes are close to or above 25 students, on bus rides, and in other settings. We will continue to comply with the standard “greatest extent possible,” meaning if students can be distanced more than 6 feet, they will. Where that is not possible, students will be distance as far apart as space allows. As six feet is the benchmark for identifying a close contact, anything less than 6 feet apart requires a close contact to quarantine. It is important to note that most close contacts in our classroom settings, in general, do not ultimately develop symptoms or test positive during the quarantine period.
