Jordan Public Schools is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for all our staff, students, and visitors. To ensure we have a safe and healthy workplace, the Jordan Public Schools has developed the following COVID-19 Summer Programs and Activities Safe Learning Plan in response to the ongoing health and safety recommendations for the COVID-19 pandemic. Administration and staff are all responsible for implementing this plan. Our goal is to mitigate the potential for transmission of COVID-19 in our workplaces and communities, and that requires full cooperation among our workers and management. Only through this cooperative effort can we establish and maintain the safety and health of all persons in our workplaces.
The Jordan Public School District’s COVID-19 Summer Programs and Activities Safe Learning Plan follows the industry guidance developed by the state of Minnesota, available at the Stay Safe Minnesota, which is based upon Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) guidelines for COVID-19, Minnesota Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MNOSHA) statutes, rules and standards, and Minnesota’s relevant and current executive orders.
Staff and students should self-screen each day. The District expects students and their parents, as well as staff members, to conduct self-screening using the Health Screening Tool for COVID-19 symptoms before entering any district facility.
- Do not come to school/work/childcare if you tested positive for COVID-19 or are not feeling well.
- Do not come to school/work/childcare if anyone in your household tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days, unless you are fully vaccinated and not experiencing symptoms.
- Staff and students are encouraged to self-monitor symptoms throughout the day. Anyone who begins to experience symptoms should inform their supervisor and/or teacher/provider and should make plans to leave school/work/childcare immediately.
- A sign will be posted in the main entrance for each building entrance that is designated for students and/or staff, stating anyone who is not feeling well should not enter the building.
- Follow your programming/work policy for reporting an illness and for further guidance. If you are reporting a positive COVID-19 case, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
