2020-2021 Reopening Plan

Thank you for choosing to attend the Trumbull Career and Technical Center for the 2020-2021 school year. During a year like no other we have experienced before, we appreciate your trust and respect your safety. Please know that we have worked hard over the summer to prepare for students, and we will continue to adapt and adjust to protect the health and wellness of our students and staff. This page will be your ‘go to’ for all information regarding our reopening and any changes that happen during the year will be communicated on this page. Our plan strives to minimize risk of exposure to COVID-19 as much as possible while maximizing the opportunity for our students to learn in the hands-on environment they have chosen. Despite all of our efforts, it is important that you understand that no matter the precautions taken by the district, staff, and students, there is still a chance that students may be exposed to the coronavirus.


COVID-19 has created unique challenges for all of us, and schools are no different. Based on the governor’s guidance and CDC recommendations and in conjunction with the Trumbull County Board of Health, TCTC has outlined its plan to reopen the district to students and staff in August. Please understand that this plan may need to be adjusted as new guidance is provided. If this occurs, this page will be updated and information will be shared in a variety of ways to make all students and their families aware of changes. Having your most up to date contact information on file with TCTC at all times is essential so we can communicate the latest updates as they occur.

Learning Schedule
For the 2020-2021 school year, TCTC’s blended learning model will be a new experience for all involved. However, much has been done to ensure that this is a positive, effective learning experience for everyone. Please explore the below resources to help make this year a success!



Safety Protocols
In addition to current daily and evening cleaning schedules, TCTC has purchased additional cleaning tools and enhanced cleaning practices to ensure that the facilities are as safe as possible. Furthermore, our modified schedule will limit the number of staff and students on campus at any time; this will assist us in maintaining a cleaner learning environment for your child. Each lab and classroom has been outfitted with hand-sanitizer and cleaning products. These items are also available across the campus in high traffic areas, especially in hallways.

The Trumbull Career and Technical Center is committed to providing a world-class career and technical education in a clean, safe, and healthy environment. Our campus has always been maintained to the highest of industry standards, but in today’s uncertain times, we are adding even more safeguards to ensure the health and wellbeing of our students, staff, and visitors. We have diligently reviewed the latest research and recommendations from the CDC, EPA, Ohio Department of Health, and the Trumbull Combined Health District and incorporated them into our Covid-19 action plans.

In addition to enhanced daily and evening cleaning schedules, TCTC has purchased additional cleaning tools, enhanced cleaning practices, and enforces a number of safety protocols to ensure that the facilities are as safe as possible. These include:
  • Social Distancing: The implementation of our blended learning schedule will limit the number of staff and students on campus at any time; this will assist in maintaining a cleaner learning environment for your child. Classrooms have been reconfigured to maintain 6-foot social distancing spaces when possible.
  • Lab/Workspace Cleaning: Every classroom and lab have been supplied with hand sanitizer, disposable towels and a disinfecting product for issues arising during class time. These items are also available across the campus in high traffic areas, especially in hallways. In addition, personal barriers/dividers have been placed in required labs.
  • Hygiene: Touch-less hand sanitizer stations have been installed at all main entrances and hand sanitizer stations have been placed in every classroom, lab, cafeteria, and necessary support areas. Drinking fountains and vending machines have been turned off and water bottles are encouraged. Expectations of healthy students and staff:
    • Daily washing of hands, or use of hand sanitizer, upon entering the building, before and after lunch, at the end of the school day and any time the student uses the restroom, coughs/sneezes into hands, or blows his/her nose
    • Covering all coughs/sneezes with a tissue or inside of the elbow
    • Ensuring 6 ft. physical distance from others whenever possible
    • Students may assist in daily wiping or spraying/cleaning of desks and chairs at the end of the school day, or as requested
    • Ensure contact information for all caregivers is up-to-date
    • Ensure there are multiple, pre-arranged methods of getting a student home from school should they become ill or exhibit symptoms.
  • Daily Temperature Checks: We have installed thermal scanners at each building entrance to check for fevers and to ensure mask compliance. Students and staff are required to record their temperatures daily. 
  • Self-Assessment: TCTC is asking staff families to conduct daily wellness checks of students before sending them to school. Caregivers are asked to pay close attention and err on the side of caution if their student exhibits any of the following symptoms:
    • Fever or chills
    • Cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Fatigue
    • Muscle or body aches
    • Headaches
    • New loss of taste or smell
    • Sore throat
    • Congestion or runny nose
    • Nausea or vomiting
    • Diarrhea
  • Face Coverings: All TCTC students and staff members are required to wear a facemask when on campus. Masks will help to protect students and staff throughout the day, and will especially add protection when a distance of 6 ft. cannot be obtained due to lab/classroom activities. The district will provide one cloth mask to all students but encourages students to also bring their own. Please be aware that any logos or graphics on the face-covering must not be offensive in any way to other students and staff. If a student chooses not to meet these requirements or wears their mask in such a way that it does not cover their nose and mouth, they may be asked to leave campus and/or face disciplinary consequences.
  • Safety Education: Signage for social distancing, mask requirements, and traffic flow is prominently displayed throughout the building and maximum occupancies for all classrooms, labs, restrooms, lunchroom, and support areas have been posted.
Food Service

TCTC will provide no cost breakfast and lunch to all students from our cafeteria through a federally funded program. Al a carte items will be available to purchase. All items will be individually packaged. Students can get breakfast from the cafeteria upon entering the building. Socially distanced seating is available in the cafeteria for students to eat before they go to homeroom. Students will follow a specific lunch schedule during their program block and eat in an assigned area to ensure 6 ft. of social distancing while eating. 

 

Parent/Guardian Responsibility
In addition to monitoring your child for the symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, headache, muscle aches, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, etc.), on the day they are assigned to come to TCTC’s campus, check his/her temperature before leaving home. If the temperature exceeds 100.0 degrees or he/she displays other symptoms, please keep your child home. Remember to call the attendance line to inform school personnel that your child will be absent. The school nurse should also be contacted at 330-847-0503 x1022 if your child is exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms or has tested positive for the coronavirus. 
 
Field Trips and Transportation

TCTC students will not be permitted to go on field trips this year with an exception being made for experiences that are necessary for program certification. In this case, the field trip will be optional and a waiver/permission slip will be required.

By law, transportation to and from TCTC is provided by each student’s partner district. Students may choose to drive to campus on their assigned day. Open enrolled students, who are not enrolled at one of TCTC’s partner districts, must provide their own transportation. Please check with your individual school district to understand their transportation plan for TCTC students.

Since transportation is provided by the partner school, please follow their individual guidelines relating to social distancing and wearing a face mask/covering when riding the school bus to TCTC. Once on TCTC’s campus, a mask will be required.
