A new District Health and Safety Plan has been developed for the 2021-2022 school year, packed with strategies to keep students safe in the upcoming school year.  The plan was modified slightly at the July 13, 2021 school board meeting and approved by the board with revisions to the masking guidelines, per the recommendation of the Center for Disease Control (CDC).*

Highlights of the plan include:

  1. Implementing a  full in-person instructional model, five days-per-week, with physical distancing to the greatest extent possible using numerous safety precautions outlined within the plan;
  2. Eliminates student temperature screenings upon arrival to school
  3. Provides full remote instruction, five days-per-week, in the Carlynton Cyber Academy using an asynchronous approach in the home.

*As of July 9, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published recommendations pertaining to wearing masks. The recommendations state that masks should be worn by individuals above the age of 2 who have not been fully vaccinated.

Therefore, students and staff at the secondary level, who are not fully vaccinated are recommended to wear a mask inside the building.

Students at the elementary level will be required to wear to mask while in the building. Staff members at the elementary level who cannot stay six feet away from students are strongly recommended to wear a mask.

Furthermore, due to a Federal ordered issued in January 2021, the CDC requires face coverings on
school buses operated by school systems. The Carlynton School District will therefore require all students and staff to wear a mask in the school setting and while traveling on District transportation.

Superintendent John Kreider says the plan was developed in accordance with all state requirements, local and CDC guidelines.   

The Health and Safety Plan provides other guidelines related to cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting of facilities as well as ventilation in classrooms, common spaces and hallways.
