Preparing for a safe, successful school year

Signage WEB

Signs like these have been placed throughout MCSD school buildings to remind students and staff of social distancing expectations.

While this year’s school start date had to be rescheduled due to the Aug. 10 derecho, MCSD staff have been working hard to prepare each and every District building to welcome students back to school on Tuesday, Sept. 8.

One key change students and staff will note are the safety information signs which adorn everything from hallways to classrooms and cafeterias to bathrooms. These signs will make it as easy as possible to know the expectations and rules in place, including the requirement of an approved face-covering and social distancing measures.

In addition, students and staff will have plenty of access to hand sanitizer, with sanitizer stations placed throughout each building. Enhanced deep cleaning and sanitation of school buildings is another key safety measure being taken.
