Back to School Safety

August 4, 2020 in Blog

As August rolls through, school is beginning. Through these unprecedented times, there have been so many new ways of doing “normal activities” for everyone, school will be very similar for K-12 children in Utah. Governor Herbert has approved the State Board of Education’s recommendations for reopening schools. The recommendations cover all areas from hygiene and teacher training to classroom set-up and mask-wearing. Children and employees of schools may be able to apply for remote learning and work re-assignment if they are at a high risk of infection or other health needs. In the new recommendations list, the state will not mandate mask-wearing at the schools but will be enforcing safe social distancing requirements and specific class-room set-ups to follow the CDC’s guidelines. Furthermore, we have developed a list of a few of the main points in the plan to reopen, to see the entire list and plans, visit here.

Communication and Training:

Schools must educate and train students and caregivers on each school’s protocols and action plan; post and make accessible to school communities, Schools must make materials available to families in their respective preferred or primary language.

Accommodating Individual Circumstances (High-Risk, Personal Decisions):

The State of Utah is requiring schools to create a process for students, parents, and staff to identify as high-risk for severe illness due to Covid-19 and have a plan in place to address requests for alternative learning arrangements, remote learning or instruction, or work re-assignments. Moreover, schools must systematically review all current plans for accommodating students with special healthcare needs and update their care plans as needed to decrease their risk for exposure to Covid-19.

Enhanced Environmental Hygiene & Safety

School districts must develop protocols for implementing an increase cleaning and hygiene regimen. Furthermore, schools must make hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, soap and water, or similar disinfectant readily available to staff/students/visitors in controlled environments to ensure safe use.

Temporarily Reclosing (If Necessary):

Schools must develop administrator, teacher, staff education and training protocol for temporarily closing if necessary. The schools must establish a plan in consultation with local health on responding to confirmed cases and the coordination of temporary closure of a school, or school district.

As the school year begins, we wish everyone great health and a great school year.
