    Custodial Efficiency

    School custodians will wipe down “high-touch” surfaces throughout the school day.   Additional custodians will be added to larger sites and custodians will be held to a very strict standard of efficiency or replaced with someone who can meet our cleaning criteria.  

     

    Disinfectant Misters for Added Layers of Protection

    Disinfectant misters will be used in all areas of the school building on a weekly basis.   Individual school sites or designated areas will be treated with a disinfectant mist after any positive exposure event.

     

    Supplies for Teachers

    All classroom teachers should be provided an EPA approved disinfectant cleaner, along with paper towels and disinfectant wipes in order to wipe down high touch surfaces in the classroom during the school day.  

     

    Transportation: Below is an outline of cleaning protocols for our school buses:

Indoor Air Quality

  • In addition to replenishing fresh air and air filtration,  the district is installing  Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization in order to increase the air quality in our schools and buildings to provide for the cleanest air possible as we continue to focus on the safety of our students and staff.

    Needlepoint bipolar ionization works to safely clean indoor air, leveraging an electronic charge to create a high concentration of positive and negative ions. These ions travel through the air continuously seeking out and attaching to particles. This sets in motion a continuous pattern of particle combination. As these particles become larger, they are eliminated from the air more rapidly.

    Elements of Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization

      • Installed in the HVAC unit air stream
      • Small particles are attracted together into larger particles for more efficient filtration
      • Molecular bonds are broken, reducing VOCs  and odor causing compounds
      • Deactivates genetic material in biologicals & pathogens
      • Treats in room air and surfaces
      • Certified to kill Covid-19
