Truman Public School RETURN TO SCHOOL PLAN - Updated

The Truman Public School board passed the following 

The numbers in Martin County are SLOWLY dropping but are still above 100 as reported for our use this week, October 18, 2021.  Covid and other ailments are going around.  Please keep your child home if they are sick.  Thank you.  

The Truman Public School will be "highly recommending masking" to start this school year.

There is no mandated mask requirement, yet we will continue all of the other \successful mitigation activities as we did this past school year.  

MASKS ARE RE!QUIRED ON ALL public transportation and this includes all of our busses. 

Our staff is dedicated to being good role models and especially for those that are most at risk. 

Parents, we will leave this decision in your hands as we are all on the same page to keep our students safe, educated and healthy the best way we know. 

Students will start the year as normal as possible and our goal will be to keep it that way. 

*We will continue to require distancing* 

*Classroom desks to be distanced from each other*

*Hand Sanitizer in each classroom to be used when entering and leaving*

We will continue to limit visitors to the front doors and office area.

Bus Information

Students will continue to distance when moving from the buses to their entrances.

The CDC is still requiring masks to be worn on public transportation. This is a not a district decision the board can change.  School buses are considered public transportation.

FALL entrance areas:

K-2 - enter at elementary doors

3-6 - doors by the cafeteria

7-12 - high School doors.

High School Students will use their lockers this year and they will not be assigned to homerooms unless needed.

High School students will move from class to class, we will continue to require distancing in the hallways.

Elementary students will also be able to use their lockers and move around the building. 

Lunch and cafeteria groupings are still yet TBD.  We believe that this will vary from grade to grade. The CDC does not suggest putting large groups of students together indoors.  We are able to mitigate this effectively.
