NEWS FROM PARENTSQUARE
Mrs. Kimberly Ahvari, School Principal
Dear Santiago School Community,
As we move into November, it is hard to believe we have just completed our first trimester in Elementary School and second grading period for Middle School. Santa Ana Unified School District is busy planning for hybrid learning so we are prepared when the Board of Education approves a return date. Distance learning is in full swing, however we are currently preparing for safe hybrid return for students and staff, which includes:
- Classroom furniture being spaced out to ensure six feet of social distancing
- Planned routes for each grade level to enter, exit, and move around the campus
- Every other restroom stall, urinal, and sinks being closed to ensure proper distancing
- Frequent disinfection of high traffic areas and common touch points
- Hand washing upon entering each classroom with proper signage and protocols taught
- Grab and go lunches for hybrid students from the classroom
- Proper PPE for all students and staff have been order including desk shields
- Marked areas on the ground for high traffic areas (office, lunch area, tech support) to ensure social distancing
- Proper signage at all entrances regarding PPE and procedures
- Health Screening Room created to ensure privacy should students or staff present any COVID related symptoms
As we receive more details and definitive timelines we will let you know immediately. Please call 714-564-8400 or email me at Kimberly.email@example.com if you need anything. We are here to support with anything your family may need.
