Building Information 2021
Traffic patterns will be modified in order to accommodate physical distancing guidelines and avoid loitering or large group gatherings.
New traffic patterns will be clearly defined indicating the direction of travel with well-marked lines on the floor, signage, and other types of barriers. Students are to walk single file and stay to the right of the centerline in hallways and stairways. Locker pick-up and drop-off needs to be hasty to maintain the flow of traffic.
An accessible entrance with electric doors is located at the main entrance to HHS. There is an elevator located in the Counseling Department corridor on the first floor as well as an elevator near the stairs going up to the auditorium.
The custodians and maintenance personnel work hard during the summer to have the school building in excellent condition at the opening of school. The custodians alone cannot maintain the school in this condition and rely upon the help of each student and staff member in keeping the school clean. This involves putting litter and rubbish into rubbish bins, keeping artist’s talents in the Art Room and not in the bathrooms, and leaving classrooms ready for the next group. The appearance of our building and grounds is everybody’s responsibility.
Restricted Accessibility Access to the school buildings is limited to designated students, essential employees, and other approved visitors/vendors with the essential business by appointment only. Everyone is required to follow proper PPE guidelines. Parent volunteers will not be allowed in the building until further notice. Whenever possible, meetings and training should be held virtually. Initially, school buildings will not be used by outside groups. Whole-school assemblies and other large events will not take place until further notice. All buildings will be vacated by 6 pm, other than essential maintenance and custodial staff. The academic wing of the high school will be closed by 4 pm for cleaning. Only staff will have access to the library if they require more time in the building.
To use a room or school facility during school hours, a student or teacher must clear a request through the Main Office receptionist. To use the building after school hours, a “Building Use Form” must be submitted to the Facilities Office so that the request can be cleared with the responsible parties. Because there may be competition for space, it is advisable to submit the request at least one week in advance, earlier if possible.
School phones are for school business use or emergency use only. There is a phone available to students in the Main office for local calls.
