Classroom floor plans will be altered to maximize physical distancing reducing class sizes to 9-12 students. Students will face the same direction rather than students facing each other.
While water fountains will be available, students are encouraged to bring their own reusable water bottles. Filtered water bottle filling stations are available at all school sites.
