Guidelines Released for Schools to Resume in Fall

As Marin County and the State of California make strides toward reopening local communities during the COVID-19 pandemic, Marin students and parents now have more clarity on what classroom instruction will look like as schools plan to resume in Fall 2020.

A Public Health Guided Return to Site-Based Classroom Instruction. The document provides guidelines to help facilitate and return to site-based classroom instruction and applies to all Marin County educational institutions, including public, private, independent and parochial TK-12 schools.

For younger students, the guidelines leverage the concept of stable classroom cohorts, where students maintain the same group of classmates throughout the school day. These cohorts will utilize a synced schedule for arrivals, classes, lunch and recess to help prevent mixing of classroom cohorts. In addition, creative use of school space for learning and lunch breaks will maximize physical distancing and cleaning opportunities.

The guidelines also include protocols for COVID-19 related scenarios and enforcing health and safety practices of hand washing, physical distancing, appropriate face coverings, and health screenings. The full guidelines are available on the Marin County Office of Education website.
