Health and Safety Policies

Health and Safety Policies

While our reopening plan implements the latest guidance from the CT State Department of Education, it is important to note that policies will most likely change. We will continue to be flexible in our approach in compliance with state guidance and best practices as we strive to keep everyone safe.
 

Mask Use:

Masks will remain mandatory inside Middletown Public 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.

 

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 Middletown 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 Middletown Health District, we have been able to provide clinics for both staff and students, and will continue to do so if needed.
