School Arrival Traffic Patterns
Snipes students arriving via bus will be screened upon exiting the bus. in the event of inclement weather, students will be screened in the cafeteria. If students' pass the screening process, they will line up physically distanced (6 feet apart) and enter the building. Once they are in the building they will be physically distanced and will be escorted straight to class. Breakfast will be provided in the classroom for all students.
Each student who is screened (bus and car riders) and passes the temperature check and screening questions will receive a purple wristband to wear into class. The bands will be collected by teachers and will be disinfected for the next days use.
If a student does not pass the screening process, they will be taken to the nurse’s office and parents/guardians will be notified to come and pick their child up.
School Arrival Health Screening Procedures
Each student will have their temperature taken upon arrival at school. Students in cars will have their temperature checked while they are still in their vehicle. Students will also be asked a series of questions to determine whether or not they have been exposed to anyone who may have Covid-19 before being admitted to their classrooms. If there are any indications that a student may be infected with or exposed to Covid-19, they will be sent home or parent/guardian will be notified immediately and instructed to come and pick their child up.
