Physical Distancing Protocol

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.
