Brandon-Evansville Public School 2021-22 School Opening Plan Subject to change based upon requirements of Minnesota Department of Health and Minnesota Department of Education. More information on current Covid requirements can be found at www.cdc.gov Schedules, programming and operations will return to near normal in the fall of 2021 for Brandon-Evansville Public School. This includes: Schedule School will be in-person, five days per week with regular start and end times. Face Coverings Face coverings are optional and will not be required during the school day or during after school activities, including sports. However, students will need to have face coverings with them, as masks are still required while on a school bus per federal guidelines regarding public transportation. Brandon-Evansville Public School fully supports individuals who choose to wear a mask. Social Distancing There are no social distancing requirements during the school day or during after school activities, including sports. Vaccines Brandon-Evansville Public School is not requiring Covid vaccinations for students, staff or visitors. Meals Students will eat lunch and breakfast in the cafeteria as prior to Covid changes. Students can eat breakfast and lunch for free the 2021-22 School Year. The only fee will be for a la carte items. Specialist Classes (music, art, etc.) These classes will be held in the classrooms as prior to Covid changes. Cleaning Cleaning protocols will continue to support mitigation of Covid. Drinking fountains and water refill stations will be open for students. Healthy Facilities HVAC systems will be running at maximum capacity to ensure high air flow and air quality. Bigger and better air handler units have been installed this summer as part of the HVAC Project. The new air handlers allow more frequent air exchanges and bring a greater volume of fresh air into the building, which reduces air pathogens. Our buildings are state of the art in air quality. Health Screening and Quarantine Self-screening for symptoms of illness will be required. If you are ill, stay home and report your symptoms to the school. As prior to Covid, the school policy remains that your child must be fever free for 24 hours with no medications prior to returning to school. Schools are mandated to report any positive Covid cases to MDH. Person’s that test positive must quarantine for 10 days per CDC requirement. Our practice regarding someone who is in close contact with a person who is Covid positive will be to notify staff and students (and parents/guardians) who are close contacts with a positive case and ask them to monitor their symptoms closely. At this time, there is no quarantine requirement. Good Hygiene Students will continue to be encouraged to practice good hygiene by washing their hands with soap and water during bathroom breaks and before meals and snacks. Hand sanitizer will be provided in each classroom. Food Service The Brandon-Evansville Food Service Department continues to provide material and food procedures that meet the requirements of Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and Minnesota Department of Education (MDE). Transportation All students (Pre-K - 12) and staff must be masked on school busses/vehicles during any school district transportation per federal requirements. Busses will be sanitized after each route. Accommodations for Special Education Appropriate accommodations for children with disabilities with respect to health and safety policies and procedures will be provided. Parents/guardians should contact his/her child’s case manager to inquire about accommodations. Partnerships with Health Agencies Brandon-Evansville Public School will continue to collaborate on issues related to Covid with Horizon Public Health, LCSC, MDE and MDH. Local Covid infection rates will be monitored closely in collaboration with the agencies listed above. Subject to Change If necessary, Brandon-Evansville Public School will make changes to ensure the health and safety of students, staff and community members, based on factors such as local conditions, state and federal mandates. This plan was created in collaboration with local area schools and the Brandon-Evansville Covid Task Force Team.
