Student & Family Health/Wellness

  • APS Safety & Cleaning Protocols

    The district’s goal has always been to strive for a return to in-person instruction as soon as the public health data indicates that it is safe for students, teachers, and staff to return to school buildings. From the start, the Facilities Department has been diligent in cleaning, sanitizing, and preparing our classrooms and buildings for in-person teaching and learning. Some of these efforts include:

    • Cleaning and sanitizing our schools and buildings*
    • Adding hand sanitizing stations in common areas
    • Installing wall-mounted sanitizer and paper towel stations in each core classroom
    • Adding disinfectant towels in each classroom
    • Increasing pre-occupancy and post-occupancy HVAC run times from two hours to three hours
    • Initiating a weekly water flushing plan during building low occupancy periods
    • Conducting high touch common area wipe downs for at least two cycles daily and monitoring hand soap and paper towel stocks throughout the day
    • Conducting facility wipe downs during nightly cleaning
    • Implementing restorative cleaning operations post-COVID-19 exposure
    • Taking water fountains offline and installing water bottle coolers
    • Utilizing deep cleaning of facilities when students and staff are not present in buildings
    • Adding response protocols for facilities impacted by COVID-19
    • Implementing visitor protocols to APS facilities
    • Limiting the use of APS facilities by outside organizations
