University School Return-to-School Safety Protocols

As you may be aware the CDC has released new school recommendations for the 2021-22 school year, these are recommendations are being reviewed and discussed with the ETSU Covid advisory board to determine if any revisions to our current plans need to occur at this time. Until that time, we ask that our students, staff and families follow these recommended guidelines:

  • ETSU and University School no longer requires fully vaccinated individuals to wear face coverings on campus. Anyone who has not been vaccinated is strongly encouraged to continuing wearing a mask when indoors and in close proximity of others.
  • Physical distancing will be observed to the greatest extent possible.
  • Additional sanitizing will take place daily.
  • Individual sanitizing wipes will be provided for cleaning student work areas.
  • Hand sanitizing and regular handwashing is strongly encouraged.
  • Individuals exhibiting COVID-like symptoms should remain home until cleared to return to school (following current return-to-school algorithm).

We appreciate your continued support and cooperation as we look forward to a wonderful and successful school year!
