Disinfecting and Hand Sanitizing

Dear Tiger Families and Staff

The LTISD Return to School Protocols for COVID 19 have been updated on the district site. I want to encourage you to read the entire document. However, over the next several days you will receive a message (like this one) from me highlighting a specific section explaining how it will pertain to our campus. Today's topic is Disinfecting and Handsanitizing.

Future topics include:

Meetings, Hallways & Common Areas - Monday, August 31st Newsletter
Classrooms - Tuesday, September 1st Newsletter
Cafeteria - Wednesday, September 2nd Newsletter
Arrival & Dismissal - Thursday, September 3rd Newsletter
Specials & Recess - Friday, September 4th Newsletter
1st Day of In Person Learning at WCHE - Friday, September 4th Newsletter
Visits to the Nurse - Monday, September 7th Newsletter

I hope you find these messages helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any additional questions.

Thank you,

Melanie Beninga, Principal of WCHE

Protocol for Disinfecting and Hand Sanitizing

Frequent disinfection and hand sanitization will ensure the health and wellness of students and staff. LTISD has an inventory of disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer which are readily available for all employee workspaces as needed.

Hand Washing/Sanitizing Expectations

  • Hand sanitizer will be available at all main entrances to the campus, as well as the receptionist desks, all classrooms, conference rooms, workrooms, cafeterias and common areas throughout the campus.

  • Staff and students will be expected to regularly wash or sanitize their hands.

  • Visual reminders of best practices and signage for hand washing and frequent hand sanitization will be displayed throughout the campus and in all restrooms.


Our staff will train and encourage students to wash their hands frequently. Students will have scheduled breaks to wash their hands throughout the day. Each classroom and common area will have hand sanitizers for students to use during the day. Visual displays have been posted in our hallways, in restroom areas, entrance ways, and throughout the building to encourage frequent hand washing and hand sanitation.

Checking a student out early

In the event a child needs to be picked up early from school, you will be required to come into the building and present your driver's license to our receptionist as well as sign your student out for the day. It would be helpful to let us know that you are on your way, but to ensure our students are maximizing their learning time at school, we will call your child(ren) to the office once you arrive.

To ensure the safety of our staff, students, and families, one family at a time will be allowed in the reception area. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

Items needing to be delivered to a student during the school day

Parents needing to drop off a lunch or other school items to their child(ren) will be able to do so by dropping the labeled item(s) in the drop box located outside the office area.

Labels should include:




Items will be delivered to the students as soon as possible.
