COVID-19 Re-opening Guidelines

covid-19

protocol

As we prepare to open the doors of the school building on June 8, we have taken into consideration the mandated CDC protocols and Summit County regulations. Picabo Street Academy has always considered providing a sanitary environment of paramount importance for our students.  We know how important it is for our student athletes to stay healthy so as not to lose valuable training or competition time due to illness.  We have always maintained an extremely high standard of daily professional cleaning practices and have intensified these in our plan to return to school.

Students who would like to come to school from June 8 will be required to adhere to the following protocols:

  • Students may choose a 2-hour window on weekdays and confirm availability with their contact teacher. Attendance numbers will be limited for each session:
  • 9 – 10.50am
  • 11 - 12.50pm
  • 1 – 3pm
  • Upon entering the building, students will wash their hands according to the standard 20 second protocol before entering the classrooms
  • Masks will be provided for the students' use
  • Students will have assigned seating to ensure adequate social distancing and that the same chair will not be used by different students on the same day

Picabo Street Academy will ensure a safe learning environment by:

  • Sanitizing all surfaces, light switches and door handles in between learning blocks
  • Keeping windows and doors open as much as possible, weather permitting
  • Limiting the number of students present in each learning session to ensure a safe environment in accordance with CDC guidelines
  • Ensuring that students adhere to safe social distancing practices
  • Requiring staff to wear a face mask at all times when inside the school building

Picabo Street Academy takes pride in delivering one on one learning opportunities to students in a sanitary and safe environment.  We strongly believe in maintaining best teaching practices, which involves interaction with our students either remotely or in person.  Having spent the last weeks teaching and learning remotely, we believe that some students may welcome the opportunity to learn in the classroom again, and we will provide this environment within the county mandated health guidelines. For those students who prefer to continue to receive support remotely, we will of course continue to do so.
