What type of cleaning/sanitization protocols will custodial/facilities and teaching staff be using to keep our schools clean and disinfected?
Routine cleaning and disinfecting are an important part of reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19. Surfaces frequently touched by multiple people, such as door handles, desks, phones, light switches, and faucets will be cleaned and disinfected at least daily. Maintaining a safe and healthy environment in our schools will require a collaborative effort between all school and district staff. Our custodial teams at each school will focus on the overall cleaning and disinfecting of the school throughout their work shifts, but they will need the help and support of all staff with cleaning high touch areas throughout the day. Our custodial and facilities staff will be using a combination of cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting to keep our schools clean and safe.
All staff will perform regular cleaning of their spaces (using approved district cleaning agents) between multiple student or staff uses of their space. Computer labs will be cleaned with district approved cleaners between cohort uses, and allow for 10-minute dwell time before reuse. Classroom computers will be cleaned with district approved cleaners between uses, and allow for 4-minute dwell time before reuse.
