Drinking fountains will be turned off with only the water bottle filling option available. Water bottles or cups may be used.
Meals, snacks, and beverages served at school will be individually packaged or will be served directly to students. As always, we will ensure the safety of children with food allergies. PLSAS will discontinue self-service food and beverage distribution in the cafeteria. There will be limited use of high-touch areas such as keypads.
Enhanced cleaning and sanitizing schedules have been implemented in all schools, including frequent sanitizing of high-touch surfaces such as desks, tables, light switches and more. You’ll see clear barriers in offices at the first point of contact, new signage and areas that have been redesigned to promote social distancing. Hand sanitizer will be provided in common and public spaces, and in classrooms that do not have hand-washing sinks.
Heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) building systems have been assessed and maintained for proper ventilation and filtration. Systems are continuously evaluated and maintained to ensure healthy indoor air quality that meets industry standards.
Staff and visitors will participate in a daily COVID-19 self-screening (series of questions) prior to being allowed entry to a building. Parents will be required to perform a daily COVID-19 check on student/s.
