In-Class Field Trip Safety Protocol
What steps are you taking to protect your health, the health of students, and the health of school personnel?
Education Coordinators will arrive with face masks and other personal protective equipment. We will use these in accordance with CDC, GaDOE and Georgia Power guidelines for safety. To limit spread on shared surfaces and ensure your classroom remains clean, each Education Coordinator will be equipped with a Safety Protocol Toolkit containing: hand sanitizer, antibacterial soap, gloves, disinfectant wipes and spray, and UV sanitizers. Any materials or equipment used during the presentation will be sanitized prior to each lesson.
What precautions are being taken to reduce physical contact with teachers and students in the classroom?
Modifications were made to face-to-face presentations to reduce physical contact among students and with the Education Coordinator. Modifications include, but not limited to, providing individual sets of supplies for hands-on activities, allowing teachers and students to keep new materials used in the presentation, utilizing gaming systems on students’ personal devices, and interactive instructor-led demonstrations.
What steps are Education Coordinator’s taking prior to entering a school building?
Prior to reporting to a scheduled face-to-face presentation, Education Coordinators are required to perform a “COVID-19 Self Screening.” This assessment evaluates symptoms, temperature, possible contact and travel activity within 14 days of the presentation. If the Education Coordinator, responds “YES” to any of the screening questions, they will contact you immediately and must not report to the school.
Are extra precautions taken to clean and disinfect surfaces and materials used for presentations?
Yes, items that are reused during each presentation will be sanitized using a disinfectant. Materials and surfaces will be thoroughly cleaned between each session. Education Coordinators will provide hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes as needed during and after each presentation. Additionally, UV light sanitizers will be used to reduce the spread of germs.
