General Precautions
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Do not come to school if you don’t feel well. Students, employees, and parents who are symptomatic of illness are encouraged to remain home until symptoms, including but not limited to coughing, sneezing, runny nose, and fever, subside. Teachers will work with students to ensure every effort is made to minimize academic impact.

Reopening Taskforce Information

Our internal Reopening Taskforce structure and group members can be viewed here. I invite you to review the various groups at work to understand our commitment to ensuring that we consider all aspects of health and safety (students, employees, and community members), campus operations, and the student experience in our planning.
