Unit 4 COVID-19 Operational/Safety Protocols

Some highlights:

Masks will be worn indoors for all. (This may change.)

We will transition to specials & other areas in the building, students will be cohorted (kept in small groups) when they cannot maintain 6’ of social distance. As suggested in the Unit 4 protocols, we will be attempting to reduce the number of students who come in contact with each student.  We will keep detailed seating charts in our classrooms, at lunch, and in art, library, music, and PE. 

Volunteers will be allowed to support the building, see the protocols for procedures.
