If your child will be attending face to face learning at McCallum, we encourage them to arrive prepared for the day – bringing all the school and personal items they will need throughout the day (e.g, mask, reusable water bottle, headphones/earbuds, Chromebook, pens, pencils, school supplies, etc.).
To prevent the spread of COVID-19 we discourage sharing items with others. Please plan accordingly.
CDC recommendations regarding shared objects in the classroom:
- Limit the use of shared objects (e.g., gym or physical education equipment, art supplies, toys, games, computers) when possible, or clean and disinfect between use.
- Discourage sharing of items that are difficult to clean or disinfect such as electronic devices, pens and pencils, classroom stapler, whiteboard markers and erasers, books, games, art supplies (e.g., markers, crayons, scissors), and other learning aids. Soft and porous materials, such as area rugs and seating, may be removed to reduce the challenges with cleaning and disinfecting them.
- Keep each student’s belongings separated from others’ and in individually labeled containers, cubbies, lockers or areas.
- Ensure adequate supplies to minimize sharing of high touch materials to the extent possible (e.g., assigning each student their own art supplies, equipment) or limit use of supplies and equipment to one group of students at a time and clean and disinfect between use.
