Lone Wolf Public Schools Return to Learn 2021-2022 School Year
As an ongoing effort to maintain the health and safety of all students, educators and staff, we have adopted new policies based on CDC safety recommendations. We want to create a safe and healthy environment for the upcoming school year.
Be assured that your child’s health and well-being is our number one priority.
All students, faculty and staff are encouraged to wear masks/face shields. At this time, this is optional but when the administration and school board feel it is necessary, we reserve the right to mandate mask wearing. All students and staff will be instructed in the correct wearing of masks/face shields.
CDC guidelines on how to wear your Mask Correctly
- Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before putting on your mask.
- Put the mask over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin.
- Fit the mask snugly against the sides of your face, slipping the loops over your ears or tying the strings behind your head.
- If you have to continually adjust your mask, it doesn’t fit properly, and you might need to find a different mask type or brand.
- Make sure you can breathe easily.
In preparation for returning to school, we have installed touchless soap and paper towel dispensers in each bathroom on campus. We have also installed a touchless water bottle refilling station. All students are instructed on the correct handwashing techniques and encouraged to frequently wash hands. Hand sanitizer is made available in each classroom and offices. Additionally respiratory etiquette will be taught and enforced throughout the student population.
Vaporized sanitizers are used on the surfaces of each classroom and facility locations. Bathrooms and water fountains are sanitized each day. Social distancing has been implemented in the classroom through the removal of tables and the replacement with new desks. Students are further encouraged to social distance between classes and in common areas. The seating in the cafeteria is also set accordingly to safely place students 6 feet apart while dining.
As funding becomes available, we are replacing outdated air handling units to improve air quality throughout the campus.
Those students with special needs/disabilities will have appropriate accommodations to protect and prevent the spread of COVID-19. We will work with the student’s IEP accommodations and follow both state and IDEA guidelines.
Parents and visitors are not to enter any of the buildings without wearing a face covering and are to keep as much as possible out of the classrooms. All visitors must check in with the office or administrators. If you do not feel well or are running a temperature, please do not enter the building. Call us, do not come inside.
Parents are to deliver and pick up students at their designated area where the teacher will meet them. This area will be outside the school building. Parents should not enter the building to pick up or drop off children.
Lone Wolf schools would like all parents to make certain that their children are fever free and feeling well (no cough, sore throat, vomiting or diarrhea) before allowing them to attend school each day.
The presence of any of the symptoms below generally suggests a student has an infectious illness and should not attend school, regardless of whether the illness is COVID-19.
- Fever of 100.4 or higher
- Sore throat
- Cough (for students with chronic cough due to allergies or asthma, a change in their cough from baseline)
- Difficulty breathing (for students with asthma, a change from their baseline breathing)
- Diarrhea or vomiting
- New onset of severe headache, especially with a fever
Students should not attend school in-person if they or their caregiver identifies new development of any of the symptoms above.
Please do not give your child medication to counteract a fever so that you can send them to school. We want to minimize any possible exposure so if you feel your child is sick, please assess them and consider keeping them home from school until symptoms subside.
Lone Wolf schools will coordinate with health officials to minimize any exposure to COVID-19. We will continue our ongoing communication with local and state health organizations to keep our campus as safe as possible. We will follow the CDC and local health organization guidelines regarding contact tracing and appropriate actions to minimize risk and exposure. We strive to keep communication open with parents, community stakeholders and health officials.
Lone Wolf schools will make facilities available for clinics to be held so that vaccinations may be received locally. If any parent, employee, student or member of the community would like to receive a COVID-19 vaccination, please feel free to contact the school at (580) 846-9091.
