Back to School Planning for Families During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Back to school planning will look different this year than it has in previous years. The Avenue City School District has developed new procedures to help maintain a healthy school environment. Our plan involves many different layers of protection including cleanliness, modifications in our instruction, accommodations to the classroom environments, limiting access to outside visitors, recognizing signs and symptoms of COVID-19, and educational materials.
We have worked with the Andrew County Health Department, area professionals, Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, the Center for Disease (CDC) guidelines, the district reentry committee, and the Board of Education to develop a district plan.
You can find out more about our district plan for reentry to school by viewing administration videos on the Avenue City Elementary PTO Facebook page or the district website www.avenuecityschool.org
Using many different resources we have developed four checklists that are intended to help parents, guardians, and caregivers, plan and prepare for the upcoming school year. Click on the link below to access to the family checklists.
