Safety and Security Plans for Returning to School

Big picture

We want to share our plans for returning to school.

As we plan for our return to campus on August 24, we want to share some changes to procedures that will occur as we welcome Wildcats back to school. We have diligently planned policies and procedures to promote the safety of staff and students. We have marked specific doors for entry and exit, marked sidewalks to identify traffic flow, created safety measures to support social distancing, sanitary measures, and safety protocols. Our goal is to help everyone feel confident in returning to a safe campus.

While we realize that everyone has different opinions and perspectives, we have new policies and procedures in place to help everyone feel as safe and comfortable in returning to campus. We appreciate everyone's help in following the new plan. We are all in this together. #WildcatPride
