Planning is well underway for the 2020-21 school year. COVID-19 has presented a number of challenges, and our commitment to a safe learning environment for students and employees means school may look much different this fall. As a team, we continue to discuss a variety of topics including:
Models for the school day
Accessible learning for all students
Bus and car transportation and schedules
Increased cleaning protocols and safety equipment
Modified classroom setups and operations to maximize social distancing
“Traffic management” for front offices, cafeterias, libraries, hallways, and other multi-use areas
We will continue to monitor current and available data about COVID-19. This information, along with health and safety guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC), and other agencies will be very important in planning for the eventual reopening of our schools. Thank you for working with us to help ensure a safe environment for all.
