MES COVID Readiness Team
The first meeting of the MES Covid Readiness Team was held on October 7, 2020. This team of 33 volunteer family members, teachers, and MES administrators was brought together to develop specific protocols for reopening the MES@Inman campus.
This team has proven invaluable in the reopening planning process. Our school community not only has amazing families and teachers willing to research and dedicate extra time to our school, but we also have infectious disease specialists, epidemiologists, public health experts, medical personnel and those who have been on the front lines of COVID-19 since January 2020. In addition, Principal Sofianos and team have consulted with other principals and heads of schools who have safely and successfully reopened. Recommendations use the resources of various departments in APS as well as federal, state, and local guidelines and CDC recommendations for schools K-12.
These procedures will continue to evolve as we learn more about COVID-19 and the “Reopening Plans” section of the MES website will be updated as needed. The COVID Readiness Team will continue to function on an advisory level until we get a reopening date.
