COVID Do's and Don'ts

Obviously 2020 is not what we expected. With COVID becoming the new normal of our lives, we have begun to take health and safety a lot more seriously. As you know, you have the option of distance learning as well as in-person learning. We hope everyone at home is doing great but for those of you in school, taking precautions and following safety rules is absolutely necessary. The staff at Kelly have spent much time deliberating the best ways to keep you safe. So we’re asking that you kindly show gratitude to them by taking them seriously and following these simple rules.

Correct Attire

Remember to wear your mask and face shields at all times unless permitted to take them off. Just as importantly make sure you have your school ID to be able to enter the building.

Incorrect Attire

Wearing a mask may be a nuisance but it doesn’t require rocket science to properly use one.

Masks don’t have to be boring. Here are some videos on how to make your own.

6 feet apart

You’ve most likely been told to social distance a bazillion times but as a gentle reminder

sTaY aWAy! As a reference 6 feet visually is about the length of a refrigerator or a cow.

Wash your hands

You should’ve been doing this even before COVID but some of you out there... (ㆆ_ㆆ)

A good amount of time to scrub-a-dub-dub is for 20 seconds which is long enough to sing the Alphabet or Happy Birthday song twice.

Some extra reminders from Assistant Principal Williams

1. Staggered entry times; A-L 8:00-8:15, M-Z 8:15-8:30

2. Staggered dismissal times A-L 3:30, M-Z 3:45

3. Students will enter through assigned doors

4. On the first day, students will come to school with a face mask, we will give each student a face shield. Students must have an ID to enter the building.

5. Temperature checks will occur before school and at lunch.

6. Students may be dropped off at 7:15 am.

7. If a student arrives before their assigned time, they will enter through the door between the cafeteria and the old gym. The student will then go to the old gym and wait for the announcement to go to the first block.

8. Any student arriving after the tardy bell will be asked to return home. The distance learning option will allow the student to stay current.

9. Once the 9 weeks have started, a student may opt to change their method of instruction 1 time.

10. Food cannot be dropped off to students.

Please continue to practice the correct measures. These tasks are not only for your safety but for the safety of the people around you. Caring for other people’s health is not new. Stay happy, healthy, and safe.
