The 2020-21 school year kicked off this week and The Learning Center Charter School introduced enhanced safety and sanitation procedures, social distancing measures, and school day schedules.
Unlike prior years, students now enter at the front of the school where they have their temperature checked daily. They are also asked a series of Covid-19 related questions and if necessary, will be sent home and encouraged to visit their primary care physician to get tested for the virus.
Masks are worn by all people on the campus at all times.
The school grounds have been marked with red bear paw symbols that are six feet apart. Desks in classrooms are six feet apart. Indoors, there are stickers and arrows that help visualize distancing.
Each classroom has a sanitizing station at each entry point. This station includes hand sanitizer, tissue, and trash can.
“This summer we built a new wellness triage area in the back portion of our Dining Commons building,” said Ryan Bender, head of school. “When a student or staff member is not feeling well, they are sent immediately to that triage area. “One thing is for sure for this school year,” said Bender. “We must remain flexible and adaptable in all aspects in order to keep our students and community healthy and safe.”
