Viruses do not typically survive on surfaces for an extended period of time. To clean surfaces and objects wipe them down with the provided cleaner and disinfectant wipes. The most effective way to remove the virus is using a towel and cleaner to wipe it away. After cleaning, dispose of single-use towel or launder reusable towel.
Custodians clean and sanitize used spaces daily and high use areas multiple times per day.
To ensure used spaces get clean make sure your building team is communicating with custodians on which work spaces are being used. If working remotely from the classroom, teachers should try and use one area of the classroom. If using a part of the classroom outside of your normal area, leave an obvious note for the custodian.
Middle and high school students clean their own desk before leaving the classroom. All rooms have access to cleaner and paper towels. This cleaner is effective at removing virus and is safe to use.
Do not bring in your own cleaning products. Mixing cleaning chemicals can be hazardous. Every building has access to appropriate cleaning products. If you need more, ask your custodian.
- Spray bottles of cleaner
- Disinfectant wipes
- Cleaning rags
Custodians order cleaning supplies through the district work request system. Coordinate with the staff requesting supplies and the building custodian.
Case Response Cleaning
If a student begins to feel unwell during the school day, they will be directed to a designated screening room. There, a school nurse or trained staff member will check their temperature and assess their symptoms. Parents will be notified if their student needs to be picked up from school. The student’s workspace will immediately be cleaned and disinfected.
