Sunman Dearborn Community School Corporation outlines procedures for 20-21 school year

St. Leon, IN —Sunman Dearborn Community School Corporation has released a 35-page document to outline the 2020-2021 school year procedures. Is says the focus will be on cleaning, sanitizing, healthy habits, and contact tracing. Each classroom, desk, and bus will be sanitized at least twice daily. Each frequently touched object (door handle, drinking fountain, etc.) will be sanitized multiple times throughout the day. Only drinking fountains with bottle fillers will only be used to fill water bottles. Students will be given multiple opportunities during the day to wash hands and will be provided hand sanitizer in each classroom. They plan to limit social interaction of students as much as possible and use assigned seats for contact tracing documentation. The document outlines cleaning procedures, transportation protocols, visitors, and more.
Visitors, other than parents, will be permitted by appointment only. All visitors must self-screen prior to entering the school building and are required to wear a face mask.
Student attendance policies have been adjusted to allow for extended absences for any student who is COVID-19 positive, exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, or has been in contact with someone COVID-19 positive or who is exhibiting COVID-19 positive.
The school corporation will also be offering an online academy for the school year. The S-DOA was created out of necessity for students and parents who have concerns regarding returning to school amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, or who have underlying medical conditions that preclude them from attending a traditional school.
