Guidelines for Minimizing the Spread of Germs

 
Staff and families have been encouraged to follow these guidelines:
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.   

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.  

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.  

  • Stay home when you are sick.  

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.  

  • Clean and disenfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.    

Social Distancing

The strategy across our community and the state is emphasizing social distancing. For this to be effective and not anxiety producing for our students, we ask that you take the following actions with your students and families based on recommendations by the CDC: 

  • Avoid gathering in public places - especially in close proximity to others.  

  • Avoid close contact with those that are sick. 

  • Try to keep 6-10 feet between yourself and others - give yourself space. 

  • Be at home as much as possible. 

  • Try to limit who you and your children interact with to the same people you typically are around.  

Kids and families should not: 

  • Be gathering in large groups - this is a time to be close with those that are closest to you.  

  • Be visiting each other’s homes or having sleepovers. 

  • Sharing food or drink. 

  • Competing in team sporting activities - use this time to train individually or with someone in the home. 

Kids and families should: 

  • Avoid excessive media coverage of COVID-19. 

  • Take care of their body. Take deep breaths, stretch or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, and get plenty of sleep. 

  • Make time to unwind and remind yourself that strong feelings will fade. Try to do some other activities you enjoy to return to your normal life. 

  • Spend time outside - fresh air and exercise is one of the best things you can do over the next few weeks.  

  • Connect with others. Share your concerns and how you are feeling with friends or family members. Maintain healthy relationships.  

  • Use your technology and social media for good purposes - support one another and show that you care for one another. 

  • Maintain a sense of hope and positive thinking

    Keep following the practice of washing your hands regularly and covering your cough or sneeze.
