Want to see what DESE’s guidelines are for reopening for full in person learning as of April 5th for Elementary Schools?
The full document is below but check out some highlights!
- New Teachers, New Learning Spaces
- pg. 6 “if students are currently learning in a hybrid model, the shift to more in-person days may require changes in classroom learning spaces and, in some cases, teacher-student assignments.”
- Tents for when it’s raining
- pg. 9 “Use of outdoor spaces at the school should be maximized, including putting up tents so these spaces can be used in rainy weather.”
- Learning at alternative locations away from the school
- pg. 9 “If indoor and outdoor spaces at the school-level are insufficient, districts should look at other spaces not otherwise used by students within the district, if available and then consider spaces within the broader community. For instance, individual grade levels within a school could be moved to local community spaces, including non profits, businesses, or other spaces to expand the physical footprint of classroom space.”
- Sitting on a rug for half a day
- pg. 9 “for tables that typically seat four students one pair of students sits together at the table in the morning and then shifts to the rug in the afternoon while the another pair of students starts on the rug and shifts to the table in the afternoon.”
- Stay away from everyone
- pg. 11 “teachers and staff should maintain six feet of distance from students and other staff when feasible.
