Q6 School Day (K-12) - Students will be taught and reminded of proper handwashing and cough and sneeze etiquette. Hand hygiene stations are located at the entrances of the schools.

Stakeholder Survey Question 6
Q7 Maximizing the Use of Space in Place of Social Distancing - “Social distancing” may not be feasible in our schools for much of a student’s school day. Instead, we will take measures to maximize the classroom and other instructional space we have for face-to-face instruction in our schools. We will limit the in-person interactions of our early childhood and elementary students to students in their classroom for much of the school day, and to children in their grade level for recess and lunch. Assigned seating maximizing available space will be used in the classroom. Elementary students will be assigned a space for carpet time within the classroom. Elementary students will continue to participate in outdoor recess as grade-level groups. Exploratory classes, like PE and music, will spread out as far as the facilities will allow. Outdoor space will be utilized when appropriate. In middle school and high school, we will limit the congregation of students and increased supervision in areas where students tend to gather during passing periods. Please rate your reaction to these provisions.
Stakeholder Survey Question 7

Q8 Staff/Students With Illness During Schools - Any person exhibiting signs of illness will be sent to the school health staff immediately for evaluation. We reserve the right to conduct temperature checks of students and staff. We do not use oral thermometers. Each school has an identified precautionary room that will be utilized for ill students and staff. If any students or staff present signs or symptoms, their temperature will be checked. If the temperature is 100° degrees or greater, the student or staff member will go to a Precautionary Room. School health room staff will immediately notify a parent/guardian for pick-up. The student will remain in isolation until their parent/guardian arrives. Parents must pick up their student, or arrange for the pick-up of their student, within 30 minutes of notification. Precautionary rooms will be utilized to keep students and staff safe from illness. The precautionary room door will remain open so that the nurse and/or designated staff member can monitor the student. The health room staff will ask the parent/guardian about recent exposure to a confirmed or presumed positive case of COVID-19. The health room staff will perform a risk evaluation. Health room staff will advise the parent/guardian to contact the student's doctor to discuss signs/symptoms and risk factors. If there are concerns for exposure, the district nurse will call Jackson County Health Department. Students who are coughing or sneezing may be asked to go home if they won’t/can’t wear a mask. We will not send students home for symptoms from known conditions, such as asthma. Please rate your reaction to these provisions.

Q10 Excluded From School Due to COVID-19 - Students and employees will be excluded from school if they test positive for COVID-19 or exhibit symptoms of COVID-19, based on CDC guidance, that are not otherwise explained. If a student is excluded from school due to a positive COVID-19 test, his or her siblings or other students living in the same household, and any district employee living in the home, will be questioned and if they exhibit symptoms, they will also be excluded from school if not vaccinated against COVID-19. If they do not exhibit symptoms, they may still be excluded from school and asked to self-quarantine unless vaccinated against COVID-19. If a student or employee has recently had close contact with a person with COVID-19 symptoms or diagnosed with COVID-19, the district may exclude the student or employee from the school building and recommend that they self-quarantine for 14 calendar days since the last exposure unless vaccinated against COVID-19.
