What will the school day look like at SVE?

Please review this page for information about our new safety and wellness procedures for what school will look like when students physically return to the Senita Valley campus. These ideas are subject to change.

  • Upon arrival, all students will be temperature checked; if a student has a temperature of 100 degrees or higher, they will be sent home and the Student Covid-19 Protocol will be followed.
  • All students will follow our Rainy Day Schedule and will go directly to classrooms upon arrival.
  • All parents will drop their student off at the gate; staff members will assist students to their classrooms if needed.
  • To promote social distancing, we are asking that kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade students be dropped off at the front (west) gate entrance and 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students be dropped off at the north gate entrance.

  • Student desks will be arranged in rows for all classrooms.
  • Social distancing between students will be conducted when possible.
  • Classrooms are capped at 22 students to promote as much distancing as possible.
  • Students and staff will be wearing masks when indoors.
  • All air conditioners are fully opened to allow fresh air to circulate the classroom; when feasible, doors will be propped open to allow for more ventilation.
  • Door handles, bathrooms, and other high touch areas will be cleaned every two hours.

  • For any transitions on campus, all students will walk single file and on the right side of the sidewalk/breezeway.

  • Students will participate in grade level recess and lunch recess as usual.
  • Unlike in years past, students will eat lunch first and then will be able to go outside to play.
  • All students will wash their hands with soap and water before their grade level recess and grade level lunch.
  • All playground equipment will be scheduled for regular cleaning.
  • All classes will be split up into zones (playground, three field zones, and the basketball court).
  • Students will be able to take off their masks if they are socially distanced from their peers.

 

  • All students will eat breakfast (if purchased from Aramark) and lunch in their classrooms.
  • Students will be required to wash their hands with soap and water before eating any food.
  • For the safety of our students and staff, there will not be any microwaves available to heat up food. Please plan accordingly.
  • Some classrooms have students with severe nut allergies; teachers will communicate that to parents. The expectation that no nuts will be allowed in the classrooms.
  • Please send a water bottle with your child; outside water fountains will not be in use. However, students will be able to use the water bottle filling station that is next to the MPR, or fill up their water bottle from the water fountain in their classroom.

  • All students will be walked to their grade level zone and teacher spot after school in a staggered timeframe:
    • Kindergarten released between 1:30 and 1:35
    • 1st grade released between 1:35 and 1:40
    • 2nd grade released between 1:40 and 1:45
    • 3rd grade released between 1:30 and 1:35
    • 4th grade released between 1:35 and 1:40
    • 5th grade released between 1:40 and 1:45
  • Students with siblings in lower grades will go to the zone of the sibling with the lowest grade level.
  • Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade zones will be in front of the school (west-facing gate).
  • 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade zones will be in the north parking lot (by the playground).
  • Social distancing signs will be displayed to encourage safe distances outside of school gate.

  • Before care is provided by Community Programs while after care is provided by both Community Programs and YMCA.

  • Only at-home volunteer opportunities will be available during the Hybrid model. No visitors will be able to come to campus to protect the safety of our staff and students.
