Return to School Rules

Ready to Return
Posted on 03/09/2021
Health and Safety
All students and staff except those with medical exemptions will be required to wear a mask. Extras are available on school buses and in schools, just in case.

Visitors to the school will be limited but permitted in small numbers when necessary.

Yellow Buses
Students should arrive at bus stops five minutes before their scheduled pick-up. There will be assigned seating on each bus. Each will fill only to two-thirds capacity.

Arrival
Be aware that, depending upon car lines pulling up to the schools, students may enter through a different door than usual.

Students will receive their breakfast and then have a designated place to eat.

Students at middle and high school will not have use of a locker.

In Class
Students will have to wear their masks in class as well, even if they are spaced six feet apart. Schools can develop plans for safe places where students can take a break from wearing their mask.

Some elementary special classes, like art and music, may now be done in their regular classroom instead of transferring to another room. The idea is to keep one group of students together as much as possible and away from the rest of the school population.

Lunchtime
The timing of lunch may change, as schools may need to stagger students across a longer time frame to allow for social distancing. Because students won't be wearing masks to eat, they need to stay six feet apart. Students will wear their mask into the cafeteria, place it next to them while they eat, and then put it back on to leave.

Drinking fountains will only be available to refill water bottles.

Recess
A group of students in the same class may play together. They will not mix with other classes.

Health Clinic
Schools will have a designated area for any student exhibiting symptoms of illness. If it is determined he/she might have a COVID-19-related symptom, or if a student is not feeling well, we will call a parent or guardian to pick them up within an hour. The health clinic will continue to be staffed by Akron Children's Hospital nurses.
