Frequently Asked Questions

Is the district prepared for long-term closure?

In the event of a long-term closure, efforts would be made for provision of distance-based learning for students and/or take-home work that would allow students who may miss a significant period of time (due to quarantine or underlying health issues) to be supported and continue their education  to maintain continuity of education.  The Food and Nutrition team are developing options for our students who need free or reduced-cost meals and our maintenance and custodial team are finalizing the process to deep clean our buildings in the event of an outbreak.

What is the district doing to clean and sanitize buildings, buses, etc.?

Cleaning and disinfecting are part of a broad approach to preventing infectious diseases in schools. Custodial and transportation staff clean schools and buses thoroughly on a regular basis with added precautions to disinfect hard surfaces and areas that have high use. 

How do you determine if school needs to be closed?

To make a determination of school closure, we would await instruction from the County Health Department.

If school does close, what factors will be used to reopen?

Again, we would await guidance from the Lake County Health Department to provide the timeline and reopening instructions.
