Prevention Strategies

Prevention Strategies

Handwashing
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. District restrooms are equipped with soap, which is preferred over hand sanitizers.

If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water, not sanitizer, if hands are visibly dirty.

Facemasks
You should wear a cloth mask or other facial covering when in public and are expected to wear one whenever you must be on-campus.

Other Precautions
Practice social distancing by avoiding all close contact with people who are sick and staying six feet away from anyone not part of your household.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

Stay home when you are sick. The district sends home any student or staff member who has a fever of 100°F and they may NOT return to school until their temperature is below 100°F for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication (Tylenol, ibuprofen) or with a release from a physician.

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

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe. See Disinfecting Chromebooks and Computers.

Gloves are not effective unless you frequently and safely de-glove and re-glove as you handle potentially contaminated items.
