Below you will find additional Questions and Answers received in the last two weeks:
Q: Has there been any change from the health department yet regarding expectations if the student or staff member has COVID 19 symptoms?
A. As of September 2nd we continue to be held to the expectation of a negative COVID 19 test, a release from a health care professional, and the student or staff member being symptom free. We heard that there may be changes coming to allow for either the release from the doctor’s office, or a negative COVID 19 test, but that has not been announced as of this writing.
Q. Is hand sanitizer allowed on buses now?
A. Yes - there was a change in policy at the state level a short time ago which allows for busses to have hand sanitizer available for students and the driver.
Q. Is a mask necessary for a student or staff member if they have already had COVID 19
A. Yes - since there is not enough known about the level of immunity in effect with someone that has had the virus, it will be critical for face coverings to be worn unless we are notified otherwise.
Q. Do masks have to cover both the mouth and nose?
A. Yes - according to CDC and Health Department guidelines, face coverings need to cover both the mouth and nose.
Q. Is every student required to get a Chromebook from school?
A. Yes - each student will be learning remotely for at least a portion of their week so will need a Chromebook for accessing assignments and activities virtually.
Q. Will students need to take them back and forth to school?
A. Yes - in most cases students will need to work from them at school as well as home. Adjustments could be made, especially in the lower grades, but we want to work with students so they are better prepared to learn in a remote environment should we need to go back into a remote only situation at some point.
