General Statement – Communication to all stakeholders (students, families, school personnel)
is an integral component of these guidelines and protocols. With this in mind, the following
methods will be used to support this communication:
     • Opening day packets mailed to all PHS students/families in early August 2020;
     • Emailed Newsletters from PHS Administration
     • School/District Website
     • School/District Social Media Outlets
     • “All Call” System
     • August Staff Meeting
     • Video Announcement - Virtual Student Assembly (August 19, 2020)

Guidelines for 2020-21 – Perry High School has an enrollment projection of 1,411 students (as
of July 8, 20) with the following anticipated breakdown:
    •   9th Grade: 373
    •   10th Grade: 339
    •   11th Grade: 374
    •   12th Grade: 325

Additionally, school personnel consists of 168 dedicated professionals (111 certified and
57 classified) who are entrusted to support all aspects of the school environment and
educational setting. With this in mind, PHS administration has taken a multitude of factors
into consideration while developing this initial 2020-21 school year plan to support the health/
safety, academic and social-emotional components of our students. As the situation warrants,
adjustments will be made in accordance with district guidelines, local health agency and CDC
recommendations, and state-mandated protocols.

Student Arrival & Dismissal Procedures
          Arrival Process
             • Students will have three different points of entry to Perry High School for
               the 2020-21 academic year:
                    • Main lobby (school transportation)
                    • Doors 16/17/18 (school transportation)
                    • Athletic lobby (parent drop-off and student drivers)
             • Students will be released one bus at a time to enter the building.
             • A traffic flow pattern/map will be designed and communicated to students,
               families and the Perry Police Department.
             • The traffic flow will be enforced from 6:50- 7:30 a.m. while school is in
               session.
             • Students will be permitted to go to their locker, and then are expected
               to directly report to their first mod class. Students will not be permitted
               to walk around the building at their leisure. This is done to support social
               distancing guidelines.

          Dismissal Process
             • Students will have three different points of dismissal from Perry High
               School for the 2020/21 academic year:
                    • Main lobby (School Transportation)
                    • Doors 16/17/18 (School Transportation)
                    • Athletic lobby (Parent Drop-off and Student Drivers)

               families, and Perry Police Department.
             • The traffic flow will be enforced from 2-2:30 p.m. while school is in session.
             • At the close of school, students will be dismissed through a gradual release
               model. Students, when released, should go directly to their locker, gather
               their materials needed and exit the building.

          Social Distance Support
             • Perry High School staff will be assigned to all points of entry/exit and the
               hallways to assist with and encourage social distancing practices.
             • Floor spacers set at 6-foot intervals will be used as visual reminders to
               everyone to support efforts with social distancing.

Breakfast & Lunch Procedures
             Breakfast
                • Students who elect to eat breakfast provided by the Perry High School
                  cafeteria program will receive a “Grab-and-Go” breakfast to be eaten in
                  their assigned first mod class (before class starts).
                • Students will enter the cafeteria adhering to the floor spacers and the
                  established cafeteria procedures to ensure social distancing practices.

             Lunch
                • Students will enter the cafeteria adhering to the floor spacers and the
                  established cafeteria procedures to ensure social distancing practices.
                • Following the purchase of lunch, students will elect to either eat in the
                  cafeteria or the auxiliary gym.
                • The Perry Local Schools’ Cafeteria program will develop specific guidelines
                  and procedures to be communicated to staff, students and parents prior to
                  the beginning of the 2020/21 academic year.

Cafeteria Use Throughout Instructional Day
General Statement – To ensure the recommended social distancing guidelines are in place for
the health/safety of our staff and student body, school administration has placed the following
guidelines in place for the 2020-21 academic year.

Student Eating Locations – Room Organization & Layout
   • For the purposes of cafeteria/lunchtime use, students will have the option of eating in
     the cafeteria or the auxiliary gym. Tables will be separated and reconfigured to support
     guidelines to the fullest extent of room square footage.
   • Within the cafeteria, seating arrangements will occur as follows:
        • Oblong tables (4 students/table) and Octagonal tables (4 students/table).
        • Using this design/setup, 156 students will be able to eat within this location
   • Within the auxiliary gym setting, 8-foot tables will be utilized and spaced accordingly to
     allow approximately 100 students to eat on the gym floor with overflow (if needed) to
     utilize the bleachers.
   • Students will be expected to remain seated at their table until dismissal at the
     conclusion of the lunch mod.

                                                     Perry High School 2020 Reopening Plan        6
Sanitizing of Equipment/Facility & Allocated Time
                 • With the adjustment of the bell schedule and extended transition time for
                   the student body, there will be approximately six minutes to sanitize tables
                   and chairs for upcoming lunch mods. The cafeteria staff will be responsible
                   to design cleaning procedures for the food service lines while the PHS
                   custodial crew will take on the responsibility of cleaning seating locations
                   for the student body.

              Floor Markings & Signage
                 • Floor markings will be used to reflect social distancing practices while
                   moving through the six cafeteria lunch lines. We will work with the
                   cafeteria staff to ensure appropriate placement of these items.
                 • Floor markings (directional arrows) will be used to indicate specific
                   entrances for students to enter/exit the auxiliary gym.
                 • Signs will be posted in each of these locations to remind students of
                   handwashing, sanitizing procedures and social distancing guidelines.

Student Restroom Use & Guidelines
Monitoring Student Access
   • Documentation is mandatory to support efforts to track student monitoring in the event
     health/safety issues arise throughout the 2020/21 academic year and will be monitored
     by classroom teachers and study hall monitors.
   • Perry High School will be utilizing the “E-Hall Pass” electronic system to maintain
     accurate monitoring of hall passes to ensure limited time out of the classroom setting.
   • The sign in/out procedure is to be used for restroom use and other identified locations
     such as cafeteria, newly installed hands-free water stations, attendance office, main office,
     or school counseling office locations. Students will not be permitted to go to lockers or
     run an “errand” for a teacher during class time.
   • PHS staff will use a “5-minute” guideline to limit time out of the classroom by a student
     with verbal warnings given initially to individual students prior to any disciplinary action
     being taken.

                                                      Perry High School 2020 Reopening Plan          7
Visitor Policy
General Statement – Perry High School will implement a “restricted visitor policy” for the
2020/21 academic year. In many instances, meetings will be held virtually yet based on the
needs of the situation may warrant a face-to-face situation. Family members bringing items
to their student will leave these items at the front desk, and in a similar manner, items to be
picked up (i.e. - transcripts, work permits) will be placed in the front lobby. The overall goal is
to reduce (and eliminate to the fullest extent possible) visitors entering Perry HS.

Technology Procedures/Protocols
              Laptop Distribution (Class of 2024)
                 • Link Crew Advisors, school administration and the Technology Department
                   have designed a system for the distribution of laptops during Freshman
                   Orientation to ensure social distancing and support of student needs as
                   they arise. Students will report to designated classrooms to receive their
                   technology equipment (approximately 15 students/room) on opening day.

              Cleaning/Sanitizing of 1:1 Laptop Program
                 • Perry Local Schools’ Technology Department will provide suggested
                   guidelines/protocols to students and families to properly sanitize
                   equipment on a routine basis.
                 • As a recommendation, students will be encouraged to clean their devices
                   following the established guidelines on a daily basis.

Loaner/Repair Process
  • Perry Local Schools’ Technology Department will continue to provide repair services of
    district-provided technology equipment and distribution of this equipment to ensure
    social-distancing practices and safe-handling procedures.

                                                       Perry High School 2020 Reopening Plan          8
Classroom Design
              Classroom Sizes
                 • Teachers will select desk configuration (As close to 6 feet between desks
                   as possible).
                 • Room configurations need to be approved prior to finalization by school
                   administration.
                 • If there is an open room, administration will make the decision to reassign
                   teachers to larger classrooms when feasible.

              Spacing of Tables & Desks
                 • Staff members are requested to remove personal items, such as bean bag
                   chairs, personal furniture, mini-refrigerators, etc. and other nonessential
                   items in an effort to maximize square footage of each instructional space.
                 • School personnel will remove school-owned items, such as extra teacher
                   desks and empty cabinets, to a designated location. These items must be
                   clearly labeled with room number and staff member name.

Library Use & Procedures
   • School administration will work with the PHS librarian to devise a plan to allow for
     distribution/collection of books.

                                                     Perry High School 2020 Reopening Plan       9
Health Protocols
         Sanitizing Classroom Surfaces Between Class Changes & End of Day
            • School personnel will be provided with training and sanitizing materials
              to use on classroom surfaces. The expectation is that all wiping down of
              surfaces will be the sole responsibility of school personnel.
            • Additional transition time between classes has been incorporated into
              the daily bell schedule to accommodate more time for this task to be
              accomplished.

         Face Coverings & Face Shields
            • The wearing of face coverings/shields by school personnel is mandatory
              when in the presence of others. School personnel are to provide their
              own face coverings while in certain situations (e.g. - special education or
              speech/language pathologist situations) face shields may be provided.
            • The wearing of face coverings/shields by students is mandatory. In
              reference to face coverings, Perry Local School District mandates the
              wearing of coverings. In the event that a student refuses to wear a face
              covering, the student will be enrolled in the Virtual Learning Academy.
              Furthermore, if social distancing may be maintained within the classroom
              setting, the wearing of face coverings by students may be at the discretion
              of the teacher.
            • The wearing of face coverings/shields by visitors who, out of necessity,
              need to enter the school building is mandatory at all times.

         Temperature Procedures
            • Staff: Staff may self-monitor their temperature and also use the district-
              provided thermometers upon entering the school. Common sense dictates
              that if the employee is feeling ill in any regard, they should remain away
              from school until such a time as the symptoms have subsided.
            • Students: Per the support of PCTA, staff members will be issued
              thermometers and will take the temperatures of each student in their 1st
              mod class on a daily basis. Should a student’s temperature be elevated
              (100 degrees or above), the student should immediately be sent to the
              clinic for additional support.
            • Equipment: District will be providing sufficient number of “touchless”
              infrared thermometers and iPad devices to be used for temperature
              monitoring. For students arriving after the beginning of the school day
              (e.g. - “Senior Option”, students from Canton South due to Career Tech
              Programs) will use the iPad devices in the main lobby. These devices will
              all be monitored by school personnel when in use.

Clinic Protocols
                 • Perry Local Schools is working to increase nurse availability throughout the
                   district.
                 • There will be three designated “clinic” areas at Perry High School for the
                   2020-21 academic year:
                        • Clinic #1 (Diabetic & Susceptible Situations) – Attendance
                          Conference Room
                        • Clinic #2 (General/Routine Situations) – Current Clinic Location
                        • Clinic #3 (Quarantine Room) – Room 115B
                 • The school nurse and allocated personnel will be available to monitor the
                   “Quarantine” room as needed. The PHS administration is reviewing options
                   for this coverage.

“Touch Points” for Various Areas
   • A significant portion of the sanitizing of “touch points” will be addressed through the
     custodial crew. Classroom teachers and classified personnel will be able to support
     this process by addressing the “touch points” in their individual rooms (filing cabinets,
     door handles, pencil sharpeners) during the school day. “Touch points” may include, yet
     are not limited, to the following areas: door knobs/handles, stair rails, filing cabinets,
     computer keyboards, light switches, etc.

Class Transitions
General Statement – With an instructional setting of more than 1,400 students, the school
administration has modified the bell schedule to provide the safest transitions for students and
staff throughout the instructional day.

Key Points
   • A majority of hallway transition times between class changes are 6 minutes in duration
     with students being released on an “A/B” schedule at three-minute intervals between
     classes.
   • Multiple directional staircases throughout the building with signs indicating the paths.
   • Designed locker protocols reflecting limited access to lockers throughout the
     instructional day.
   • Students will move throughout the building while staff, in many instances, will remain
     “static”.
   • A modified bell schedule has been developed for the 2020/21 academic year.

                                                     Perry High School 2020 Reopening Plan         11
Transition of Students
   • Major transition times will be 6 minutes to allow for a gradual release of
     students into the hallways. There will be two transition teams (A & B).
     Classroom personnel that are designated as “A” will release their students
     as the bell rings. Classroom personnel that are designated “B” will release
     their students halfway through the 6-minute class change.
   • Social Distance “spacers” will line the hallways for students to stand on if
     they reach their next class and the teacher has not dismissed his/her class
     yet.
   • The bell schedule with additional notes are located at the end of this
     section.

Locker Protocols for Students
   • Students will be permitted to use their lockers at the beginning and at
     the end of the school day only. This is to help expedite hallway transition
     times, help keep the hallways clear from students standing/kneeling at
     their locker during class changes, and help promote social distancing
     guidelines to the best of our abilities.
   • A majority of courses have online versions of their textbook or a classroom
     set. As a result, students should have limited books to carry with them
     throughout the day.
   • Lockers will be assigned to students based upon their final class of the
     instructional day in an effort to help expedite departure at the end of the
     day.

Student Dismissal
   • Students will be gradually released from their classes. Staff will follow
     the same gradual release model as during major transition periods. “A”
     school personnel will release their students at 2:12 p.m. and staff members
     designated as “B” will release their students at 2:15 p.m. This will allow for
     only half of our students to be in the hallways at the same time.

Attendance
Attendance Code – Student Absence
   • Perry Local Schools is developing a code specific to COVID-19 to distinguish this
     situation from other absence types.

Student Extended Absence
   • If a student will have an extended absence, then the teacher will email student
     assignments as students will not be able to come in or have a visitor/parent receive
     the information. If needed, and can be arranged, a classmate may be able to take work
     home to a student.
        • If needed, and can be arranged, a classmate may be able to take work home to a
          student.

Procedure for Sick Notes/Early Dismissal Notes

   • When a student returns from an absence they will place the note from a parent/
     guardian or doctor in a drop box slot (or designated area) near the Attendance Office
     entrance. This procedure will reduce the amount of interaction between the attendance
     secretaries and the students.
   • When a student has a note for an early dismissal they will place the note from a
     parent/guardian in a drop box slot (or designated area) near the Attendance Office
     entrance. This procedure will reduce the amount of interaction between the attendance
     secretaries and the students.
   • Delivery of dismissal passes will be handled in the following manner:
        • In most instances, the attendance secretaries will call the classroom where the
          current student is in attendance and have them report to the attendance office
          prior to their next scheduled course.
        • School personnel will utilize the e-hall pass program to support this effort.

Vacation Policy
   • As a parent/guardian, a driver’s license is needed to verify this absence, as has been
     done in previous years, this process will take place at the front desk in accordance with
     the established visitor policy.

Training - Staff & Students
Student Assemblies & Virtual/Video Training Series
   • Videos will be made that will include the following:
         • Routine health practices for students (handwashing, social distancing, appropriate
           use of face coverings, cough and sneeze etiquette, and the importance of staying
           home when sick or displaying symptoms)
         • Administrative expectations for students
         • Counseling department information
   • Signs will be displayed throughout the building reiterating the topics discussed in the
     videos.
   • Reteaching of these practices will take place during key reentry dates such as after
     winter break and spring break. Based on feedback from staff and office referral data,
     may take place beyond the stated dates.

Special Education
Conducting of Meetings (IEP, ETR, 504, Parent Meetings, etc.)
   • All meetings will be conducted virtually whenever possible.

Intervention/Small Group
   • Intervention/small group instructors will conduct social distancing in their classrooms.
     If the room is too small, administration will find a larger classroom available so staff can
     safely provide student services.

Career Technical Programs
Perry High School is a member of a consortium for the offering of Career Technical Programs,
which includes the following high schools:
   • Canton South HS
   • East Canton HS
   • Sandy Valley HS
Juniors and seniors who are enrolled in a South Stark Career Academy Career Technical
education (CTE) program in the 2020-21 school year are REQUIRED to attend the CTE
program and any related academic courses in person at the school where the program is
housed. The knowledge, skills, and hands-on learning experiences in our CTE programs are not
able to be adequately substituted by virtual options. If your family would have selected full-
time virtual learning without this requirement, you may be able to take your other core classes
using your home district’s remote learning plan. Any mid-day transportation that is not part of
the traditional busing plan will be the responsibility of the family.

The Districts and high schools are continually working in a collaborative manner to address
the unique needs of each Career Technical Program to ensure the safety and health of all
students.

Curriculum & Instruction
Decisions made at the district level will provide information specific to these areas as they
relate to Perry High School:

Policy for Late Assignments Due to Extended Absences
   • Per district guidelines, students will have the amount of days out to complete
     assignments when they return. As an example, if a student is absent for 14 days due
     to quarantine, they will have 14 days from the day they return to turn in makeup
     assignments.

Policy for Retake of Assessments/Assignments
   • Teachers should use the policies already in place for their individual classrooms.

Expectations for Students Missing Due to COVID-19 (Exposure & Self-Quarantine)
   • If a student was a traditional option student, he/she will remain a traditional student
     just as if he/she had any other extended illness. Google Classroom should be utilized to
     share lessons, classes can be livestreamed and Google Hangouts are digital means to
     support and maintain instructional contact.

Assessment of Students Upon Return to 2020-21 Academic Year
   • Tested areas can utilize the Ohio Department of Education released tests. Other content
     areas can reference their former SLO assessments, common formative assessment, or
     any other diagnostics that they would utilize to assess students at the beginning of any
     year. Non-sequential courses should not be affected.
   • Vertical teaming conversations should also occur to discuss power standards addressed
     during spring remote learning time.

Instruction Guidelines for Elective Offerings
   • Art Courses - Individual kits will need to be purchased. If individual kits are not purchased,
     materials must be assigned with as little sharing as possible or a procedure for cleaning in
     between uses needs to be determined.
   • Band Courses - Band instructors will create a procedure that has been approved by
     administration and accounts for social distancing and safety measures.
   • Choir Courses - Choir instructors will create a procedure that has been approved by
     administration and accounts for social distancing and safety measures.
   • Computer Courses - A procedure for proper cleaning of computers between classes will be
     determined by the instructor.
   • E-Learning Courses - A procedure for proper cleaning of computers between classes will be
     determined by the instructor.
   • “Foods” Courses - Face coverings and gloves must be worn during foods class (district will not
     provide).
   • JROTC Program - A procedure for proper cleaning of equipment and a social distancing plan will
     be determined by the teacher and shared with administration for approval.
   • Physical Education Courses - Physical education instructors will create a procedure that has been
     approved by administration and accounts for social distancing and safety measures.

Traditional vs. Virtual Learning Academy
General Statement – As we look forward to the 2020-2021 school year, great thought and
consideration has been given to the best ways to provide a safe and healthy environment for all
of our students to continue their educational journey.

General Guidelines
    • The traditional setting will be one viable option for those families who feel comfortable
      returning to the school buildings. Numerous safety precautions and protocols, guided
      by the Ohio Department of Health, will be implemented throughout the school day to
      protect students and staff as much as possible.
    • For those families who are not comfortable returning to the school grounds, there will
      be a remote learning option.
    • While the spring remote learning situation occurred quickly, with little time for planning
      and preparation, the Virtual Learning Academy plan for the upcoming school year is
      designed for the long term.
    • While it is extremely difficult to reproduce a live classroom setting, the Virtual Learning
      Academy sessions are designed to provide the same level of learning of the same
      standards with rigorous expectations. Additionally, students participating in the Virtual
      Academy Learning opportunity will remain Perry students. As district students, they
      will be held to the same high expectations and the attendance, lesson/assignment
      completion, timeliness, grading policies, code of conduct, etc. and all other guidelines of
      the traditional setting will remain in place.

 Virtual Academy Learning Administrators
    • Mrs. DaNita Berry (K-6)
    • Ms. Jennifer Reese (7-12)

Florida Virtual Information
    • Students opting for Virtual Academy Learning will be enrolled in Florida Virtual.
    • Florida Virtual Course Crosswalk

 Club Expectations
 General Statement – Perry High School offers a multitude of clubs and organizations that meet
 prior to school and after school as a part of their program. With this in mind and in an effort
 to support guidelines/expectations with promoting a safe environment, all advisors of these
 organizations will provide school administration with a general framework that they will follow
 prior to the initial meeting of each organization.
