St. Louis County Shares School Reopening Guidelines
July 7, 2020
The St. Louis County Department of Health, EducationPlus and Independent Schools of St. Louis shared a Return to School Guidance document today that local schools will use as a framework for developing their individual return-to-school plans. This document was developed by area superintendents, health care professionals and health department personnel to support a consistent approach for reopening school with an emphasis on student and staff health and safety.
Over the past several weeks, Lindbergh Schools administrators have been closely reviewing these countywide guidelines to ensure that Lindbergh’s procedures and practices are consistent with local health department recommendations in the following areas:
Health screening for students and staff
Procedures when someone becomes sick
Guidelines for protective face coverings and PPE
Cleaning and disinfecting
Social and emotional wellbeing
School Reopening Plan Coming Soon
School districts across the St. Louis region are planning to share their reopening plans with the community on Monday, July 20. Lindbergh Superintendent Dr. Tony Lake has been meeting regularly with school superintendents from across the region to ensure that Lindbergh’s reopening plan is consistent with surrounding school districts and aligns with St. Louis County Health Department guidance. We are mindful that these guidelines and recommendations could change, and we will remain flexible as we work to accomplish our most important goal, which is to do what is best for kids and families.
