  • Work is underway on the creation of enhanced safety and cleaning protocols for an eventual return to school and work. This includes a new Room Readiness Policy and Procedures whereby all rooms in the school district will be set up at the end of each work day in a predetermined manner designed to ensure maximum opportunity for deep cleaning.
