Social Distancing

SOCIAL DISTANCING Social distancing is a key part of the North Syracuse Central School District’s reopening plans. Social distancing is defined as keeping 6 feet of space between yourself and others. The District will take the following steps to encourage social distancing: 
  • Implement a staggered arrival plan including points of entry at each location;
  • Implement a student drop-off plan;
  • Reduce in-school movement where possible;
  • Ensure that student groupings are as static as possible by having the same group/cohort of students stay together when possible. The size of groups/cohorts of students are determined by the number of students who can be in each classroom while maintaining 6 feet of physical distance;
  • Utilize alternative spaces (LGI, gym, library, cafeteria, etc.) as available;
  • Implement a staggered special area teachers plan;
  • Develop a staggered restroom plan;
  • Encourage the separation of  individual student belongings and limit the use of shared supplies to one group of students;
  • Utilize playgrounds when proper safeguards are in place (e.g., staggered use); 
  • Ensure that a distance of 12 feet in all directions is maintained between individuals while participating in activities that require projecting the voice (e.g., singing), playing a wind instrument or aerobic activity; 
  • Cancel any events that cannot be conducted within social distancing guidelines and other criteria listed herein; 
  • Separate classroom desks and turn desks to face the same direction in all rooms, including staff desks in faculty rooms; 
  • Restrict the use of classrooms and other places where students and staff gather (lockers, cubbies, entryways, hallways), so that individuals can be socially distanced; and
  • Restrict gathering in small spaces (e.g., elevators, faculty offices) by more than one individual at a time unless all individuals in such space are wearing acceptable face coverings.

RESOURCES The District will implement proper signs throughout all buildings to remind students and staff to social distance. Free printable resources are available on the CDC website
