Guidelines for HCS Facilities Usage ~ Spring 2022
HCS Reopening Plan Provisions:
Approval for facilities usage encompasses district expectation that any organization must abide by all health and safety protocols in place by the district. See below.
Visitors must follow all health and safety protocols in place by the district.
Administrators and/or the Board of Education may make a case-specific determination based on varying factors including but not limited to community transmission. The location of the facility use will be a key factor, with increased access more likely for outdoor areas.
Health and Safety Protocols Include:
Masking is recommended for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors in all indoor settings on the HCS campus, regardless of vaccination status, when community transmission level is high (red).
Masking is optional for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors in all indoor settings on the HCS campus, regardless of vaccination status, when community transmission level is moderate or low (yellow or green).
Physical distancing of three feet between individuals will be maintained in all indoor settings on campus, as practicable.
Faculty, staff, students, and visitors should practice handwashing and respiratory etiquette (covering coughs and sneezes) to keep from getting and spreading infectious illnesses including COVID-19.
Individuals must stay home if they are displaying any signs or symptoms of infectious illness. Arrival at school or on school grounds serves as an attestation that the individual does not have any symptoms of COVID-19 (or other communicable diseases) and that they have not been exposed or aware of having been exposed to anyone with COVID-19.
HCS will continue to collaborate with state and local health departments, to the extent allowable by privacy laws and other applicable laws, to confidentially provide information about people diagnosed with or exposed to COVID-19.
Facilities usage request/approval may be forfeited if an organization does not adhere to current health and safety protocols in place by the district.
Groups will be afforded a one-time courtesy notification if a concern is raised.
If the concern is not corrected for, forfeiture of facility usage will occur.
