Health and Safety Policies

While our reopening plan implements the latest guidance from the CT State Department of Education, it is important to remember that things not only might change, they will. We will continue to be flexible in our approach in compliance with state guidance and best practices as we strive to keep everyone safe.

Before/After School Programs, Sports, and Activities:

Before/After School Programs, Sports, and Activities will proceed as planned, with consideration for spacing and outdoors as appropriate. Fully vaccinated students/staff do not have to quarantine from sports or other activities provided they remain asymptomatic after close contact with a known COVID-19 case.
 

Mask Use:

Masks will remain mandatory inside WHPS schools for all students, staff, and visitors. Schools will continue to have masks available for any individual who does not have one, and we will continue to teach proper mask behaviors. Students and staff do not need to wear masks outdoors, regardless of vaccination status. 


Social DIstancing:

The Department of Public Health continues to recommend that schools maximize the distance between students to the extent feasible, with the goal of limited potential virus transmission. We will space students at least 3 feet of distance apart, when feasible with available space.

 

Hygiene/Handwashing:

Frequent handwashing is still a recommended mitigation strategy to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases. Schools will continue to teach and implement routines for hand-washing at specified points during the day. All classrooms and school offices will be outfitted with hand sanitizing stations.

 

Vaccination:

Increasing vaccination rates in our students, staff, and community is our greatest strategy in keeping students learning in-person. Vaccination is currently available to everyone 12 years of age and older and appointments are readily available at pharmacies and health centers.

 

Cleaning and Ventilation:

Contaminated surfaces are not a significant risk of transmission of COVID-19, and our routine daily cleaning is all that is needed in our school buildings. We will continue to run our school ventilation at maximum capacity as directed by the DPH guidance. At the start of the 2019-2020 school year, we contracted an outside HVAC mechanical engineering firm to review our systems and we have put in place updates and recommendations for each school. We have created and will continue to utilize outdoor learning spaces at each school to encourage having students outside whenever possible.

 

Diagnostic Screening, Reporting Illnesses, and Testing:

We will continue to emphasize that students stay home when they are sick. Parents will continue to follow health screening protocols that we have established based on recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the State of Connecticut, and the West Hartford-Bloomfield Health District. We have encouraged both staff and eligible students to be vaccinated as this is the best mitigation tool to keep our community safe. Through our partnerships with the West Hartford/Bloomfield Health District and UConn Health, we have been able to provide clinics for both staff and students, and will continue to do so if needed.
