Facilities and Operations

School Cleaning: We will continue enhanced cleaning and disinfecting of frequently touched surfaces and all school spaces during the day with deep cleaning after school hours.

Classroom and School Set-Up: Classrooms are being set up to maximize social distancing if feasible as highlighted in the CSDE guidelines and requirements. This will allow for a full return to school having only desks and the most needed supplies in classrooms to maximize social distancing. School facilities will have clear signage for social distancing, handwashing and safe travel throughout the school building.

Food Services: Cohorts will have lunch together and we will make use of large indoor and outdoor spaces to ensure we are maximizing social distancing. Chartwells has a national model, the Ready to Reopen Playbook, for daily safe food distribution.

Bus Transportation: At this time, we are planning to operate buses at full or close to capacity while also maximizing health and safety protocols as highlighted in the CSDE’s plan. All passengers will be required to wear a face covering that covers the nose and mouth during transit, prior to boarding the bus, and must be kept in place until they are completely off the bus.
