Guidelines for Returning to In-Person Learning

Guidelines for Returning to In-Person Learning

We will follow all state and county health department guidelines and the student handbook including the 20-21 addendum. during in-person learning. THESE GUIDELINES ARE MANDATORY AND FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH ANY GUIDELINE WILL RESULT IN A STUDENT'S RETURN TO FULLY REMOTE LEARNING:

  • Students attending in person are expected to attend all of their scheduled classes.
  • When arriving at school, students must go directly to their first assigned classroom for the day. There is no use of lockers or congregating in the hallways or common spaces.
  • While in the school building, everyone must properly wear a face mask (cloth or medical).
  • Using the lanyard issued, all students must wear their IDs at all times so they can be easily read on the bus or when at school. 
  • Saliva Screenings are now optional, but we do encourage everyone to participate as this screening will help us all stay safe.
  • Face shields are optional.
  • What students should bring to school:
    • All needed materials, including a mask. 
    • fully charged Chromebook, earbuds, books, notebooks, calculator, writing utensils, etc.
    • A water bottle since drinking fountains are disabled - water bottle fillers are available. 
    • Students might want to bring a light jacket or sweatshirt as we are bringing in twice as much outdoor air into our spaces and this might make rooms feel chilly.
  • During breaks, students should only eat the snacks at the designated times set by the teacher.
  • Students may not leave campus and return.
  • Any student displaying COVID-like symptoms at school will be sent to the nurse’s office for evaluation. Any student with confirmed COVID symptoms will be required to leave the school building and cannot return until approved by the school nurse.
  • If you or someone in your household tests positive for COVID-19, you must notify the school nurse and keep your student home from school

If we learn that someone at District 99 has tested positive for COVID-19, here’s what will happen:

  • District 99 will call anyone who is identified as having had close contact with someone who receives a positive COVID-19 test. This will be followed with specific instructions.
  • You can view weekly district metrics of cumulative positive cases here

Remote Learning protocols and expectations remain the same when students attend class remotely.

  • All school rules and expectations extend to the Remote Learning environment including the student handbook and the 20-21 addendum.
  • Students and families should not take pictures or record any remote classroom sessions of students or staff. 
  • We also encourage families to not attend class with their children and give them space to participate fully in class.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation with these guidelines.
