On Thursday, July 29, the Liberty Elementary School District Governing Board approved the following COVID-19 Mitigation Plan for the 2021-22 School Year:
Face Coverings/Masks - Face coverings and masks are optional for all staff, students, and visitors.
Social Distancing and Cohorting - There will be less restrictive social distancing and student grouping measures in an attempt to return to more normal operations.
Isolation/Quarantine - Any staff member or student that tests positive for COVID-19 will be required to isolate per CDC guidelines. Students exhibiting two (2) or more COVID-like symptoms and/or who are awaiting COVID test results must stay isolated at home for 10 days and be symptom-free for 24 hours or receive a negative test and be symptom-free for 24 hours. Students with chronic health conditions may provide a letter of diagnosis from a medical doctor stating the COVID-like symptoms contributed to the chronic health issue.
- Students - Students with direct contact to a person with a positive COVID-19 test will not be required to quarantine. Parents of students who have had direct contact with someone that has tested positive for COVID-19 will be notified and asked to monitor their students for any symptoms that may appear. Parents who wish for their child to isolate/quarantine shall call the school to excuse the child's absences.
- Staff - Liberty Elementary School District staff members are considered essential workers.
Hand Hygiene - Students will continue to be encouraged to use hand sanitizer or wash their hands upon arrival at school, after being outside for physical activity, before and after meals, prior to leaving school for home, and after sneezing, coughing, or blowing nose.
Supplies - Students are encouraged to maintain individual supplies separated from others.
Cleaning - Cleaning supplies will be available to staff. Cleaning will return to normal operations.
Food Services - Menu items will continue to minimize the use of high touch condiments or utensils.
