Keeping Students and Educators Safe in the COVID-19 Era

COVID-19 School Safety

Back-to-school shopping lists now include masks and hand sanitizer with the usual backpacks, notebooks and pencils. This is definitely a back-to-school season like none we’ve ever seen before. Whether your student is going back virtually or in person, schools are working hard to prepare for the upcoming year. In additional to the usual safety considerations, schools must now take COVID-19 into account as well.

Find out how the Minnesota School Safety Center and the SFMD’s School Inspection Team partnered to help schools reopen as safely as possible.
