November 12th, 2020 Southeast Nebraska Health Department: The Falls City Public School district has gone into the Orange plan protocols effective Monday, November 16, 2020. According to the Southeast Nebraska Health Department’s COVID-19 dial, Richardson County has moved from Orange into Red. Due to the number of positive cases of COVID-19 and quarantining of students and staff, the district will be implementing these changes and adjustments so we can continue to operate in person with our students. High School Orange Protocols 1. All students and staff will be required to wear masks or face covering on buses and school vehicles. 2. Parents are encouraged to monitor students for symptoms and communicate with the high school in the event that students show any symptoms. 3. Students are highly encouraged to not arrive at school until 8:00AM if they are not eating breakfast. First period class starts at 8:07 am. 4. All staff, students, and visitors will be required to wear a mask upon entering the building and continue to use the mask or face covering during the school day. (Mask breaks may be utilized if a 6-foot distance can be maintained between individuals with teacher permission) 5. Custodians will continue to clean high touch surfaces, restrooms, and water filling stations and teachers will clean desks between each class change. Rooms sanitized each evening. 6. At lunch, additional seating will be utilized in the gym and in the bleachers. Only three students will be allowed to sit at round tables until dividers purchased by the district arrive. Students will be asked to utilize their mask or face coverings after they finish eating. 7. Winter activities will have protocols in place established with guidance provided by NSAA, DHM, and ECNC conference schools. Masks or face coverings are required for all non-participants, coaches, and spectators. Advantages of enhanced protocols at High School 1. This will reduce the number of students forced to quarantine or isolate. 2. This will aid in the need of contact tracing. 3. This will aid in helping keep our students and staff healthy. 4. This will aid in our ability to serve our students educational needs in person. Sincerely, Gale Dunkhas, High School Principal *These protocols are subject to change in response to ongoing health regulations and the wellness of students and staff at FCPS.
