Daily Employee Screening and Arrival Protocols and Morning Routines
All faculty and staff must have up-to-date medical records on file before they enter any school building.
Faculty and staff will have their body temperature taken at the entrance of any school building before entering.
Screenings will check for fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea, and for exposure to or history of COVID-19 infection or travel in past 14 days.
Screeners will also make a visual inspection of the employee for signs of illness which could include flushed cheeks, rapid breathing or difficulty breathing (without recent physical activity), or fatigue.
If fever and/or other COVID-19 symptoms are present, the employee will be directed to the closest nurse who will be stationed outdoors for further examination.
Upon entering, faculty and staff should apply hand sanitizer from the wall-mounted dispensers at each building entrance before proceeding to classroom or other spaces. They should frequently apply hand sanitizer throughout the day AND wash their hands regularly.
Faculty and staff are required to wear face masks throughout the day except while eating/drinking or teaching a discipline that requires an exception when teaching outdoors. Descriptions of protocols for those disciplines are outlined below.
Faculty and staff should maintain a distance of at least 6 feet between themselves and others as much as possible.
Faculty and staff should minimize contact with handles, doorknobs, handrails and elevator call buttons as much as possible.
Faculty and staff should open windows in their work areas, including offices and classrooms, as soon as they arrive. Windows should be left open all day, weather permitting. If it is too hot or too cold outside, windows may be left open for a minimum of 30 minutes every hour.
