COVID-19 Response Products for Schools

Improving school safety as they begin to reopen

Across the country, schools are putting plans in place to resume in-person classes for the next academic year after being canceled entirely in early spring of 2020 due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. To ensure the safety of students/staff and prevent the virus from continuing to spread, educators, district leaders, and local governments need to prioritize a variety of important health considerations when putting reopening plans together.

To help support our customers during this time, Seton has expanded its product selection to include safety solutions created specifically for schools. From high-quality signage that communicates policies for staff, students, and visitors to vibrant floor marking stickers and tape that provides an efficient means of directing traffic flow, our products can be utilized in a multitude of ways. We encourage you to reach out to our customer service team at 800-243-6624 to check stock status and delivery times.

For additional resources, you can refer to our Guide to Social Distancing for Essential Businesses During COVID-19 and our resource on OSHA Violations During COVID: How to Stay Compliant and Keep Workers Safe.

COVID-19 Safety Considerations for Reopening Schools

Entrances & Pick-Up/Drop-Off Areas:
-Efficiently direct the flow of traffic with our curated selection of traffic control products.

-Post highly visible signage that clearly communicates new policies, especially those related to visitor procedures. Advise that parents/guardians stay in their cars and limit their contact with others while picking up or dropping off their children.

-Implement multiple social distancing procedures for gatherings, classrooms, and movement through the building.

-Provide alcohol-based hand sanitizer in classrooms and high-traffic areas to allow students and staff to frequently sanitize their hands. Be sure to also consider ways to accommodate the needs of children and families at high risk.

-Require sick students and staff to stay at home if they are feeling ill and/or showing symptoms of any kind. Consider implementing daily health screenings for students and staff.

-In situations where social distancing is not possible, advise that staff and students wear face-covering masks for protection and to prevent further spread of the virus.

-Communicate regularly with staff, students, and parents. Plan to include messages that address potential stigma and discrimination.

-Reconfigure classroom layouts to ensure seating/desks are at least 6 feet apart. Turn desks to face in the same direction rather than facing each other, or have students sit on only one side of tables, spaced apart. Seat closed for social distancing signs can assist in communicating these new layouts.

-Cleaning staff should clean and disinfect all areas (e.g., offices, bathrooms, and common areas) used by the ill persons, focusing especially on frequently touched surfaces.

Administrators should continue to seek guidance from local health officials to determine when students and staff should return to schools and what additional steps are needed for the school community.
