Face Coverings & social distancing

All students must wear a face mask and maintain social distancing at all times!

 

The District and Smythe Academy shall require the use of face coverings (“masks”) in accordance with federal, state, and local guidelines in effect. (https://covid19.ca.gov/masks-and-ppe/)

Teachers will teach students the proper use of PPE and proper social distancing behavior. They will make every attempt to remind and encourage students to follow these rules in order to keep everyone safe. 

Students will be moved to Cohort C if they refuse to wear a mask and/or refuse to follow social distancing guidelines unless they are exempt from wearing a face covering under California Department of Public Health  guidelines. 

Smythe Academy and Twin Rivers Unified School District will follow state and local guidance in effect for students who do not comply with safety protocols. Currently, this guideline is a parent and/or student who refuses to have a student comply with safety protocols (e.g. wearing masks and maintain social distancing), unless exempted from requirement, will be required to participate through distance learning rather than in-person, until such time that the student complies with the requirement or state/county guidelines change in relation to this requirement. Here are some resources to prepare your child for a return to school.

Safety Precautions on Campus

Over the past year, Smythe has made considerable changes to ensure the safety of all staff and students on campus. We have worked closely with the district office to ensure we are meeting all health and safety guidelines. 

As students come back to the classroom they will notice desks and furniture have been removed and rearranged to ensure 6 feet of social distancing, touchless soap dispensors and faucets have been added to restrooms, and social distancing signage has been posted across the campus. 

Behind the scenes, sanitation, air filtration, and disinfecting procedures have been developed and/or adjusted to ensure proper cleaning of classrooms each day and that CDC guidelines are met. 

 

Below is our Campus Movement Map to promote social distancing and increase student safety.
