  • General Information:

    Mask Wearing 

    Masks are required for all staff and students (except when eating/drinking or during outdoor recess) from pre-K to post-secondary. This applies to all schools, offices, departments, buses. If a student arrives without a mask, they will be given a mask to wear as a condition of entry. Mask wearing will be strictly enforced. 

    Mask wearing will be strictly enforced. 

    Allowable face coverings include: 

    • Reusable facial coverings (must be washed daily)

    • Disposal masks (must be disposed of daily)

    • Gaiters (one-piece neck and face sleeve) 

    Exceptions: 

    • Students who have a documented medical condition must provide written paperwork from a medical doctor and the principal must contact the Director of Student Services. For students unable to tolerate a face mask due to a documented medical condition, a clear face shield or transparent partition will be provided for their own safety as well as the well being of those around them.

     Mask Breaks (Fresh Air, Mask, and Snack):

    Teachers can provide students with 3 mask breaks with 1 being the snack break throughout the day. Breaks should be taken outside. The 2 mask breaks should not be longer than 5 minutes. The 1 mask/snack break should not be longer than 10 minutes. Please do not take breaks in the same area. 

     Lanyards:

    Each student will have a breakaway lanyard, provided by the school, that they will be responsible for during the day so they can take off their mask during recess, mask breaks, and snack break.  Teachers can decide if they want students to bring the lanyard to/from school each day.  Students may also leave the lanyard in their desks prior to leaving at the end of the day too.

     

    Classroom, Hallway, and Locker Procedures:

    • When students enter the building they are to go directly to their classroom.  Teachers will dismiss students to go to lockers to put away their belongings.

    • Every classroom must have a seating chart that will follow them throughout the day to specials and lunch.  

    •  Hallway line-up must be in the same order to and from special, lunch, recess, snack break, etc.

    • Use the blue lines when the red arrows are not present.  Follow arrow directions and right of way rules.  Arms out in front to measure for the appropriate spacing.

     

    Classroom Teacher Movement:

    Classroom teachers will move classrooms during the transition time between subject matter. Classroom teachers will take students to/from special classes each day. Classroom teachers will take students to/from lunch each day. Classroom teachers will take students to/from recess each day.  Classroom teachers will take students out for mask/snack breaks each day, weather providing. 

     

    Seating Charts:

    A seating chart with assigned seats will be utilized in all classes including special classes and lunchroom. The seating chart should be the same in all classes so that the same students are seated near each other in all classes. This would help with any needed contact tracing.

     

    Welcome Table (late arrivals):

    Students will enter through door one when arriving late. They will remain outside forming one line while social distancing.   They will enter one at a time through Door 1. 

    They will be checked in by a Riley Staff Member. 

     

    Student Item Drop Off: 

    Parents may drop off important items that a student may have left at home: 

    Lunch, medicine, etc….. 

    Parents will enter through door one.  We are asking that parents please leave the item on the table in our secure vestibule.  Please put your students’ name and teacher on a sticky note.  Riley Staff will deliver the item to your student.  

    Unimportant items are forgotten homework, gym shoes, etc.  Please plan ahead. 

     

    Water Bottles:

    Students are encouraged to bring a water bottle from home. The filling station will be available (we have a filling station in the cafeteria), however, the drinking fountains throughout the building are not in use at this time. They are covered up so students are reminded that they are not to be used. Students may also bring disposable water bottles to school and throw them away at the end of the day. 

     

    Wellness Room:

    Teachers will send a student to the office if they are not feeling well.   The office will call home to report symptoms to parents.  The child will be sent to the Wellness Room, under adult supervision, to wait until the parent/guardian arrives.  

     

    Bathroom Procedures

    Classroom teachers and specials will remain in control of student procedures to obtain permission to use the restroom.  Only 1 boy and 1 girl from each class will be allowed to utilize the restroom at any time.
