Enhanced Cleaning Protocols

In preparation for the return to campus ultraviolet and ionization filtration systems have been added to all HVAC units. These systems remove 90% of airborne viruses, bacteria, mold, volatile organic compounds (VOC), and odors, and improve overall air quality.

Nine housekeeping staff members, an increase from the previous staff of two, will oversee typical school-day cleaning. Their responsibilities will be strictly focused on constant and repeated cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting of high touch spots, high traffic areas and bathrooms throughout campus during the school day.  Two housekeeping staff members will be assigned specifically to the First School.

Throughout the school day, as class schedules allow, classrooms will be sanitized and disinfected when students are out of the classroom for breaks, lunch or recess.  This work and all housekeeping processes will utilize EPA approved disinfectants for the control of the COVID-19 virus.

Night crew housekeeping will perform typical cleaning of buildings as well as sanitizing and disinfecting high touch spots, high traffic areas and bathrooms.  Additionally, at a minimum, all buildings will be sanitized and disinfected utilizing an electrostatic sprayer.
