Social Distancing Plan

Measures to Maintain Safe Learning Spaces

  • Arrange desks to be at least six-feet apart and to face in the same direction (rather than facing each other) to reduce transmission caused from virus-containing droplets (e.g., from talking, coughing,<br>sneezing).<br>

  • Consider using visual aids (e.g., painter’s tape, stickers, etc.) to illustrate traffic flow and appropriate spacing to support social distancing

  • Review the feasibility of using distance learning methods in the classroom

  • Copies of this plan have been sent to students

Measures to Improve Sanitation

  • Ensure the availability of appropriate cleaning supplies (e.g., disinfectant wipes) for cleaning of high-touch surfaces.

  • Have hand sanitizer and tissues readily available for use by students and staff.

  • Reinforce the importance of handwashing routines. Ask staff and students to wash hands upon entering<br>and leaving classroom or other spaces in the school building.

  • Educate students on the importance of avoiding touching their faces throughout the<br>day, and washing their hands when they do

  • Describe other measures

Signages and Posters

  • Provide signages at designated campus entrance points to inform people that they should: avoid entering the facility if they have a cough or fever; maintain a minimum 6-feet distance from one another; and not shake hands or engage in any unnecessary physical contact.

  • Post a copy of the Social Distancing Protocol at the designated entrance points

  • Display posters within the school promoting proper hand washing

  • Consider engaging the school community in developing communications or creative strategies to limit the spread of the virus

  • Send digital versions of the posters via e-mail

Measures to Protect Students Outside the Classroom

  • Consider staggering up arrival/dismissal times and dividing up student entry points rather than funneling all students through the same entry space

  • Cancel/re-schedule activities and events like field trips, student assemblies, athletic events, practices,<br>special performances, and school-wide parent meetings<br>

  • Consider transitioning field trips to free virtual opportunities

  • For child care or pre-school settings, consider staggering playground use rather than allowing multiple classes to play together. Limit other activities where multiple classes interact.

  • Consider cleaning high touch areas of the play structure between groups

  • Limit nonessential visitors

  • Provide reminders about the importance of not sharing food or drinks during breaks

Measures to Protect School Staff

  • Arrange faculty desks to be at least six-feet apart and to face in the same direction (rather than facing each other) to reduce transmission caused from virus-containing droplets (e.g., from talking, coughing,<br>sneezing)<br>

  • Hold staff meetings virtually or in a large enough space to accommodate social distancing

  • Facilitate professional development trainings virtually whenever possible

  • Explore opportunities for staff who cannot be at school due to their own high risk conditions or those of their family members to complete work utilizing alternate spaces (e.g., telecommute)

  • Identify staff who cannot be at school due to their own high-risk conditions and consult with them if they can provide distance learning instruction to those students who are also unable to attend

  • Copies of this plan have been sent to school staff
