TCTC 2020-21 Reopening Plan

Thank you for choosing to attend the Trumbull Career and Technical 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. 

Expectations for a Successful School Year

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.  Following the expectations at This Link help to 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.

Mask/ Face Covering

On August 4, 2020, Governor DeWine introduced a mask mandate for Ohio children returning to in-person learning in K-12 schools.  TCTC will require students to wear a face mask/covering when they are 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/face covering 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.

TCTC staff members will be required to wear a face mask/covering at all times when working with students and staff.


Self Assessment for Staff and Students

TCTC is asking staff families to conduct daily wellness checks of students before sending 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

-Headache

-New loss of taste or smell

-Sore throat

-Congestion or runny nose

-Nausea or vomiting

-Diarrhea

Students will pass through temperature scanners upon entering TCTC and those who register an elevated temp (100 *F)  will be asked to submit to individual “temperature checks” upon entering school.
-They are fever free without the use of medicine for at least 72 hours
-Symptoms have improved
-At least 7 days have passed since symptoms first appeared OR
-An individual with a positive test but no symptoms may return to school if all of the following have occurred:
-They have no symptoms
-10 days have passed since the positive test
-They have 2 negative tests, at least 24 hours apart
 
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 elbow
• Ensuring 6 ft. physical distance from others whenever possible
• Students may assist in daily wiping or spraying/cleaning of desks and chairs at end of 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.

Food Service

TCTC will provide the opportunity for students to purchase breakfast and lunch from our cafeteria each day they are in our building.  Breakfast can be purchased from the cafeteria upon entering the building and taken to homeroom to be eaten.  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. Parents are strongly encouraged to put money on the student lunch account. The student can do this by pre-paying in the cafeteria; or parents can do this at www.tctchome.com by going to the link labeled “Pay Schools Central.”

Field Trips

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. 

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.
 
Inform the school nurse, Mrs. Brianna Le-Mon, if your child has COVID-19 symptoms. She can be reached at 330-847-0503 ext 1022 or email brianna.le-mon@tctchome.com

Transportation

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 TCCTC’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.
