Phase One Reopening

 

Dear Parents, 

We successfully launched our first day of Phase One learning at Torrey Pines. I wanted to provide information for our school community to understand the safety plans we have in place at TPES to ensure the health and safety of all staff and students. This week, all teachers and staff members are taking time to watch three training videos on COVID precautions. One was produced by our District, and the other two are part of a Safe Schools Training module.

Here, you will find the COVID-19 Prevention Plan webpage and a scanned copy of our Torrey Pines Elementary Phase One Checklist.

Each day students are on site, I will be completing a daily inspection report and sharing this with our BSS. These reports are kept in my office and available for any staff to review.

Attached here, I have included links to the opt-in form parents/guardians must complete before their child comes onto campus for onsite learning - Family Opt-In On-Site Learning

A narrative of the time a student is on campus is as follows:

Students must wear a mask and will be dropped off at the designated time at the curb. A staff member (principal) will greet them. They must show their printed, cleared health form when stepping out of their car. As an extra precaution, this staff member will take their temperature. They will line up at spaces marked six feet apart. The staff member will walk them to the hand washing station located at the table area by the library. They will wash hands following hand-washing protocols. They will walk into their assigned building and set their cleared health form in the tray inside the building (if not already collected by staff member at check in). The doors will already be opened. Class rules and protocols for safety will be reviewed at each meeting. All doors will be open in their building to promote air flow. Two air purifiers will be in place in each occupied building. Desks will be arranged with a minimum of six-foot space. For this week, the students will practice walking on the path with an arrow directly to the student restroom and following the path with an arrow away from the restroom and back to the classroom (one-way traffic only). Students will review hand-washing protocols again at the restroom. Signage will be displayed in the restrooms and in the classrooms to remind students of protocols. When the session is over, the students will walk with a staff member to wait for pick up on the places marked in front of the school. 

At TPES, all construction workers will use the porta-potty on site. Teachers must use the two adult restrooms at the office or the nurse’s restroom inside the office. Students may only use the restroom outside of room 3. These student restrooms will be unlocked from 12:30-3:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, when students are on campus.

The teachers and I are meeting at least once a week throughout the month of October to continue to evaluate and refine our COVID-19 plan. 

Please take time to review the student-family grade level modules to prepare for returning to onside learning.

Please feel free to reach out if you have additional concerns or questions regarding safety and precautions we are taking at Phase One at our site. 

Sincerely,

Nona Richard
