COVID-19 Resources and Tools » 2021-22 SCHOOL SAFETY AND WELLNESS PLAN


Each school entity must create a Health and Safety Plan which will serve as the local guidelines
for all instructional and non- instructional school reopening activities. As with all emergency
plans, the Health and Safety Plan developed for each school entity should be tailored to the
unique needs of each school and should be created in consultation with local health agencies.
Given the dynamic nature of the pandemic, each plan should incorporate enough flexibility to
adapt to changing conditions. The templates provided in this toolkit can be used to document a
school entity's Health and Safety Plan, with a focus on professional learning and
communications, to ensure all stakeholders are fully informed and prepared for a local phased
reopening of school facilities. A school entity's Health and Safety Plan must be approved by its
governing body and posted on the school entity's publicly available website prior to the
reopening of school. School entities should also consider whether the adoption of a new policy
or the modification of an existing policy is necessary to effectively implement the Health and
Safety Plan. Each school entity should continue to monitor its Health and Safety Plan
The following is the initial version of our Phased School Reopening Plan for the GREEN PLAN.   There will be adjustments made as needed.  We are working on completing the plan for the YELLOW PHASE.  Also included is the Athletic Resocialization  of Sports Recommendations.
