Mitigation Strategies

  • Will there be distancing in schools?

    Posted by:

    CDC recommends schools maintain at least 3 feet of physical distance between students within classrooms to reduce transmission risk. The Great Valley School District Health and Safety Plan upholds this recommendation and students will be distanced at least 3 feet as much as possible.

  • In addition to masking, will other mitigation strategies remain in place this year?

    Posted by:

    Yes. We will maintain the mitigation strategies we implemented last year that apply to ventilation, cleaning and sanitation, physical distancing, and handwashing and respiratory etiquette. We encourage those who are sick to stay home. We will also continue to screen test (BinaxNOW COVID-19 antigen test) those students and staff members who demonstrate symptoms during the school day. Finally, we will continue to work with the CCHD on contact tracing, and will maintain our COVID-19 dashboard and notification letters to affected school communities.
