Stay home when you’re feeling sick. Do you have a fever, cough, or respiratory issues? If they are not from pre-existing conditions, please stay home.

Use hand sanitizer and wash your hands when your teacher asks you to.
Follow directions for entering and moving around your school. Signs show you where to walk. Some passageways may be one-way.
Try to sit away from other students on the bus, unless they live with you.

Wear your mask at all times, even during recess. Cover your mouth and nose. Don’t touch your face or anyone else’s mask. Your school has masks if you need one.
Stay three feet apart as much as possible.
