    ● A Grab-and-Go breakfast kiosk will be set up on the east side of the building to reduce the amount of traffic in the building.

    ● Water fountains will not be available, but students are welcome to bring their own reusable water bottle and take it home each day for cleaning.

    ● Visual markers will be placed on the floors and walls of the campus to help students and staff maintain a six-foot distance from one another.



    ● Students will have a staggered dismissal schedule to minimize the number of students in the hallways.

    ● Students must wear a mask at dismissal.
