Screening at home before you come to school
Health & Safety - What to know before going to campus
The health and safety of our students, staff, and families are of the utmost importance and it’s guiding all we do in planning for an outstanding school year. When students are back on campus, school will look much different than in previous years due to the new health and safety measures. This plan to reopen schools is based on current guidance from the public health officials and state agencies and will be updated as the situation evolves.
BEFORE ARRIVING AT SCHOOL
Screening at home must take place each school day:
Make screening part of your morning routine! Families are required to conduct a health assessment each morning before leaving for school or getting on a school bus. Students and adults are recommended to self-screen for respiratory symptoms such as cough, congestion, or shortness of breath, as well as nausea, fever, chills, or body aches.
Students and adults experiencing those symptoms should not attend school.
Families are recommended to take temperatures daily before going to school. Anyone with a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher should not go to a school site. Personal illness, quarantine, and COVID-19 illness or symptom related absences will be excused.
Any adult accessing campus must conduct a self-assessment before coming to any school facility. If a person is experiencing symptoms, they should stay home and will not be admitted on campus.
As students return, it will look different.
Arriving at school:
Parents that are dropping off their children must remain in their car.
If you carpool, please make sure to mask up!
All students and staff members will be required to wear face coverings.
Parents and visitors will have very limited access to the school campus.
Each TTUSD school site will have designated routes for entry and exit in order to limit direct contact with others.
Each TTUSD school site will have signage throughout campus to remind students and staff about social distancing, hand washing, and spreading germs.
The District has secured additional safety equipment including but not limited to: mobile hand washing stations, no-touch thermometers, improved air filtration, student partitions, and hand sanitizer.
