See full answer Ensure the same group of students stay together each day with the same staff/teacher (e.g., no switching classes) as much as possible and limit interaction with other classes, staff, and teachers (e.g., schedule breaks and meals at different times). Avoid sharing books, supplies, games, or other learning aides; if sharing is necessary due to limited supply, clean and disinfect between different students. Restrict extra-curricular activities, field trips, and inter-group events and meetings. Restrict entry of caregivers, non-essential visitors, and volunteers. Encourage students to maintain a 2-meter distance from those they do not live with when walking to school. Establish protocols to limit contact with caregivers during drop-off/pick-up. Indicate a location by the entrance and exit beyond which caregivers cannot cross during drop-off and pick-up. Add visual cues (paint, chalk, or tape on ground and signs) to indicate the "do not cross" point. Encourage caregivers to wear cloth face coverings or masks during drop-off and pick-up. Encourage caregivers not to exit cars/motorbikes/bicycles when dropping off/picking up children to limit mixing and crowding at drop-off/pick-up point.
