If a student does test positive for COVID-19, they will be allowed back after three days with no fever, 10 days since their symptoms first appeared and after two negative COVID-19 tests.

They’ll work with the health department to see if it’s necessary to quarantine an entire classroom or building or shut down a school site.

Everyone on campus is required to wear a mask.

The school district says they’ve set up hand sanitizing station at the entrance of each school building along with common areas of the classroom.

The classroom will also look different this year, with seats spaced out and enhanced cleaning between each period.

The school district says each building will be disinfected and sanitized at the end of each day.

They’ll be using electrostatic disinfection machines approved by the CDC.
