Protocol for Physical Distancing and Protection
- Minimum of 35 sq ft per person (not just students) in a room
- 6 feet between people (to the maximum extent possible)
- Minimizing interactions between cohorts
- Physical distancing in classrooms, hallways, restrooms, arrival and dismissal, meals, recess, passing times, assemblies
- When doing in-person or hybrid learning, students will be on a rotating green/black schedule with cohorts of between 30 and 60 on alterating days (total of 90 for the academic week).
- Signs with the maximum people capacity are posted at the entry to each room. Students were then assigned appropriately.
- Cohort Interaction is monitored to minimize interactions by the following (this is not an exhaustive list):
- Each class has a different break time during the school day when feasible.
- Each cohort has a different release time to have recess when feasible.
- Cohorts are assigned entry points into the school for their screening when feasible.
- Cohorts remain in their classroom while the subject matter teachers move between classrooms when feasible.
- Each cohort has an assigned bathroom and no shared bathroom pass is used when feasible.
- Hallways are monitored for cohort interaction.
- Signs created to show hallway traffic flow
- Taped arrows on floors showing traffic flow and 6 foot distance guidelines while in the hallway.
- As cohorts move to other classrooms, see plan for new cleaning protocols in each room between cohort use.
- ● Each cohort is dismissed separately for bus loading so less interaction in hallways when feasible.
- ● No in person assemblies. Any group presentations will be broadcast through the use of webcams to each classroom.
