Return To School Plan in Response to COVID-19

With the COVID-19 outbreak, the importance of business preparedness and contingency planning, as we are learning, has never been more valuable than now. School leaders are now facing the new challenge of continuing educational efforts while maintaining required health safety standards and ensuring that we are prepared before the 1st day of school. 

In order for us to successfully begin a new school year safely and responsibly together, each day this week I will be posting my school's resources and other helpful content to the blog and the Principal Principles Leadership Group. I encourage you to follow along each day to share/find materials, tips, links, ideas, etc., for back-to-school in response to COVID-19.

HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT THIS WEEK:


Today, I want to share with you my school's Return to School Plan along with links to multiple other documents. Feel free to use the documents as a guide for your campus!

A FEW THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN CREATING YOUR RETURN TO SCHOOL PLAN:

1. The top priority is ensuring the safety of the staff and students. 
2. Leverage the WHO and CDC sites, as well as local government agencies for critical health information.
3. Health protocols and safety regulations are changing frequently while new information is being discovered about COVID-19. With this, ensure that your RTS plan is a "living" guide for staff and students to reference frequently for any updates.

 The Return to School Guide is broken down into three main sections. 
  1. SECTION I: Safety of Students, Staff, and Visitors
  2. SECTION II. Academics and Home-Based Learning
  3. SECTION III. Extracurricular and District-Wide Planning

The guide is posted on my school's site, Hawkins ISD Strong Start. The site is created in Google Sites and has been helpful for staff and parents to find information for this school year all in one location. The site includes printables you may find helpful including:

  1. Hundreds of thousands of students will be starting their studying in college in less than two months from now. If you are one of them, you might be freaking out now, which can be understood. Therefore, to distract you from these overwhelming thoughts, read a list of tips on how to ease the period of college preparation.
