In developing safety guidelines, schools from pre-school to high school can face challenges with so many children and teens in one building. Your school may be considering social distancing measures this school year that include spaced desks in classrooms, markers to keep students apart in public areas like the cafeteria or auditorium & signage reminders
Cleaning & Hygiene
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has advice to support behaviors that can help reduce the spread of germs. Schools can consider providing supplies, including: Hand soap, hand sanitizer, paper towels, tissues cleaning wipes, cloth face coverings (as feasible), no-touch / foot-pedal trash cans.
Personal Protective Equipment
The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in “public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain … especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.” In schools, especially ones where social distancing is hard to maintain, cloth face coverings and other masks are recommended by the CDC.
Ample School Supplies
Besides having adequate health and cleaning supplies, schools may also consider having enough regular supplies and equipment (for example, art supplies), so students can have their own supplies and not be tempted to share.
