Dover High School and Regional Career Technical Center Student and Family Reentry 2/15/2021

  1. Safety of students, staff, and the community
  2. Prioritizing the students and programs that are most dependent on in-person instruction.
  3. Gradually bringing students into the building to allow for the fine tuning of procedures and protocols.

Hybrid Model

The hybrid model places students into cohorts (groups of students) who attend school on the same days.  Creating cohorts is necessary to reduce class sizes to meet the safety guideline of keeping students six feet apart.  In most of our classrooms, this caps the number of students at 12 to account for adults in the room as well.  This approach has been in place using a half-day (either Blocks 1 and 2 or Blocks 3 and 4) cohort model for our Career Technical Center students since October.  The plan going forward is integrated with that model to keep consistency with what has been in place.

 

In the hybrid model, students are placed into either Cohort A or Cohort B.  Students will be notified of the cohort to which they are assigned.  Students are in-person two days a week and virtual three days a week.  The schedule students will follow is:

In-person learning- may include a variety of activities including direct instruction, lectures, discussions, presentations, independent activities, hands-on activities, and lab work.  

Virtual learning- real time synchronous instruction, asynchronous work, independent assignments, and other activities related to the course that can be completed at home.

High needs students will be notified of their Cohort on Monday, February 15, 2021.

All other students will be notified of their cohort on Monday, March 1, 2021.

Student Expectations for Hybrid Learning

  • Follow all safety protocols
  • Attend class during their scheduled time whether in-person or virtual- in-person attendance is in assigned classroom while virtual attendance requires logging into Google Classroom and connecting to the platform the teacher uses for instruction (Zoom, Meets)- come to the school on their assigned days and engage in virtual learning on their virtual days
  • Completion of all work as assigned either in-person or on Google Classroom
  • Communicate with teachers, case managers, counselors, and administrators for support as needed

Student Safety Protocols

All Dover High School protocols and procedures are in alignment with Dover School District’s Protocols Applied to a Pandemic Education (P.A.P.E) which can be accessed at 123141-8a3e0aaa-eb43-44ef-b0ba-901f1a907948.pdf (edl.io)

It is important that all students, family, and staff work together to minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19.  All students will adhere to the four basic tenets of safety (screener, masks, social distancing, hand washing) and other more specific protocols.

  1. Stay home if you are sick.  The following is a list of symptoms of COVID-19 and are indicators for students and staff to be excluded from school: fever of 100.0 or higher, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, congestion, fatigue, body aches, chills, headache, loss of taste or smell, nausea and vomiting, and/or diarrhea.  Please note that this list may change, and the most recent applicable criteria should be used. Please use this link for the most up to date information:  https://www.dhhs.nh.gov/dphs/cdcs/covid19/documents/covid-school-toolkit.pdf

 

Our first line of defense is following the directions on the screener carefully each morning you are coming to the building.  Students must complete the screener every day before entering the building.  If they have a fever of 100.0 or higher or answer yes to any of the questions on the screener, they must stay home.  Please call Ms. Anderson in the Attendance Office at 516-6915 to report an absence.

                The screener can be accessed at: https://forms.gle/BwBWAz2q2b9TEsyS9

  1.  Masks are required on busses and on-campus.  Students driving themselves or being dropped off must put their mask on before exiting their vehicle.  Masks must have two layers and always cover the nose and mouth.  Masks with ventilators, gators, and bandanas are not allowed.  If a student comes           to school without a mask, one will be provided.
  2. Students are to be socially distanced whenever possible.  Six feet is to be maintained.
  3. Students should frequently wash their hands with soap and water for twenty seconds and when that is not available use a hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol.  Hands should be washed after touching your mask and before and after eating. Hand sanitizer is to be used upon entering           the                          classroom.

Transportation

Busses- The bus schedule can be found at the following link: Transportation – Students and Families – Dover School District.  Students will be given an assigned seat to help with contract tracing.  Masks must be worn at the bus stop and on the bus.

Parking on Campus- Juniors and seniors will be allowed to park on campus.  Seniors will park in the front parking lot in the section closest to Alumni Drive.  Juniors will park in the Bellamy Lot on Bellamy Road or the Fire Lot behind the South End Fire Station on Durham Road.  Students will not need to pay for parking unless we go to all students being in the building at once.  They will need to complete paperwork and get a parking sticker.  Paperwork will be provided upon the return of your cohort and you may park without a permit until you get a sticker.  Students should only drive with members of their household.

Food Services

Café Services will provide boxed breakfast and lunch items.  Food is only to be consumed in the Town Square (our cafeteria) or gymnasium which will also be used for lunch.  Students are to only sit on seats with an x marked on them.  The number of students allowed into the serving area will be limited to help with social distancing.

The water fountains are only available for filling water bottles.  Students should bring a water bottle.

Arrival and Dismissal

Students will be allowed in the building at 7:20 am and should report directly to their Block One Class.  Students having breakfast will report to the Town Square for breakfast, eat their food in the Town Square, wait to be dismissed, and then report to Block One.

Dismissal at the end of the day will be staggered with the first floor being dismissed at 2:25 pm and the second floor at 2:30 pm.

Traffic Flow in the Building

The hallways have blue tape that runs down the middle of the hallway.  Students should walk to the right of the tape and socially distance.  Do not walk side by side with classmates; walk single file.

Stairways are also two way and students should stay to the right and not walk side by side with their classmates. The only exception is the stairwell at the Green Wave.  That stairwell is a down stairwell only except during the lunch blocks when students dismissed from lunch will be able to go up those stairs.

During the school day students will enter the gym via the hallway at the back of the building and will exit by the doors that enter the Town Square.  The opposite pattern is in effect for afterschool athletics.  Students enter the gymnasium via the doors off the Town Square and exit via the hallway at the auxiliary gymnasium.

Late Arrival/Early Dismissal

All students will be eligible for late arrival/earlier dismissal provided their parent signs off on the consent form.  This option is for students who have a study hall Block 1 or Block 4.  Students must provide their own transportation if they are going to use this option.
