*Beyond washing your hands, there are so many more ways we can keep PAA well!

We want you to know all the ways we’re keeping our community well and how you can do your part. 

 

Here at PAA . . . 

– Surfaces and door knobs are getting a wash twice, daily (or more).

– Every teacher is disinfecting their classroom surfaces through the school day.

– Surfaces that are highly accessed are getting extra attention.

– Staff and students are told to stay home if they feel ill and have a fever.

– If a student looks sick, they’re sent to the office to have their temperature and symptoms checked.

– If a student is sick, they’re sent home immediately

We’re sharing information with our families. 

 

What you can do . . . 

–  Always wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Coughing and sneezing etiquette is important to practice (whether you’re sick or not).

– Feeling sick? Fever? Shortness of breath or significant coughing? Stay home.
