If the school becomes aware of a staff member or student who is sick or if there is a suspicion it’s COVID-19, the classroom will be emptied. Then the custodians will thoroughly clean the room by wiping down the surfaces and spraying with a cordless electrostatic sprayer using water-dissolving PURTABS, which are fast dissolving disinfecting and sanitizing tablets.
