Plan A with Modification

We will start the 2020-21 school year with a modified Plan A approach.  This approach will involve all students to attend school while keeping each class separate as much as possible.  Below is a list of precautions that we will provide:


  • All students K-8 and staff will be required to have a face covering (mask/face shield) at all times (except lunch/snack when social distancing shall be followed).
  • Students will have their own personal sanitizers and encouraged to wash hands often.
  • We will utilize the 8,500 square feet of indoor space and 10,000 square feet of outdoor space that we have to keep social distanced.  This will require us to use our computer room, art room, library, cafe, and walk areas as student work stations.  
    • Areas will be marked off with X’s to insure proper distances
    • Tables will have plexiglass install to help students social distance 
  • We will add shaded areas outside to help distance the students as much as possible to help distance as much as possible while still allowing children to play and socialize.
  • Each student will have their own personal school supplies to eliminate communal items such as scissors, pencils, etc…
  • Students will be asked to wash hands before and after the use of all materials.
  • We will try to give students individual materials as much as possible.
  • Each student will bring in their own snack to eliminate communal snack.
  • We will sanitize high pathway areas frequently.
  • Each classroom will have an air purifier.
  • Small groups will be utilized for instruction as much as possible.
  • Utilize the outside environment as much as possible.
  • Parents can choose to have students come full or ½ day  
    • Half day students will not be part of a community lunch (even though we will still maintain social distancing)
    • Half day students will be provided with distance learning capabilities for activities performed the second half of each day if applicable.

Requirements from NCDHHS


Social Distancing and Minimizing Exposure

Is a key tool to decrease the spread of Covid-19.  Social distancing means keeping space between yourself and other people outside of your home.

    • If a person is diagnosed with COVID-19 by a medical professional based on a test or their symptoms or does not get a COVID-19 test but has had symptoms, they should not be at school and should stay at home until they (or a family member if younger child) can answer YES to the following three questions:

  2. Has it been at least 3 days since the child had a fever (without using fever reducing medicine)?
