Return to Learn Plan

Over the past year, Poplar Bluff educators have gathered best practices from schools across Missouri and the country and solicited input from local health care officials, parents, students, and other stakeholders. The information below is designed to help parents/guardians make informed decisions with regard to the learning experience of your child(ren) as we begin the 2021/22 school year with added safety measures in place to help mitigate risk for families during the pandemic.

  • Face coverings are recommended in all settings in order to reduce the spread of infection from the wearer to those around, but are not required at this time.

  • Protocols have been put in place for social distancing to occur where possible in school settings.

  • Sanitation stations have been installed in entryways; frequent hand washing/hygiene practices will be built into the school day.

  • Students and staff are asked to self-screen and stay home if symptomatic; attendance incentives have been eliminated across the board.

  • Procedures are in place for responding to reported/suspected illness; isolation rooms have been established in nurses’ offices.

  • Extra cleaning of common spaces and disinfecting of hard surfaces will take place by custodial staff routinely; supplies such as disinfectant foggers have been acquired for buses.

  • As a corollary to the flexibility in our re-entry plan, the district will partner with a vendor to provide a comprehensive remote learning solution to use in case of closure, quarantine, or parent request.
