Health and Safety Reentry Simulation
On Oct. 29, 2020, ACPS spent a rainy morning simulating every step of a school day as we plan for the reentry of our students into our school buildings. Once we had walked through the new procedures for keeping our staff and students safe and healthy with just our staff, we invited one of our students from the citywide program for students with disabilities to join our simulation.
Our objective is to ensure a safe and healthy learning environment for our students, staff, and families as we welcome you back. To do this, we have put together a video of the simulation to show you what a day will look like.
Before leaving home students will complete a health questionnaire. Students will sit spaced out on the bus in line with CDC guidelines. They will be met by their teacher, who will be protective gear, including face coverings, overalls and gloves. All students must wear face covering and everyone will stay 6 feet apart, work behind plexiglass screens and keep all equipment in bags. Cleaners will be on site throughout the day, ensuring high-touch areas are kept clean at all times.
This is not going to be easy, but we want to see our students back in the building as soon as possible, and we are working hard to make this happen.
