Welcome to Solomon Schechter Day School's page dedicated to providing information about our COVID-19 health and safety protocols. We understand the importance of maintaining a safe and healthy environment for our students, staff, and community members, especially during these challenging times. Below, you will find detailed information about the measures we have implemented to prioritize everyone's well-being.

Health Monitoring and Screening

At Solomon Schechter Day School, we prioritize regular health monitoring and screening to ensure the early detection of any potential COVID-19 cases. Our staff and students undergo daily temperature checks and health assessments upon arrival. This helps us identify any symptoms or changes in health that may require further evaluation.

Strict Adherence to Guidelines

We strictly adhere to the guidelines provided by local health authorities and governing bodies. This includes following social distancing protocols, promoting the use of face masks and personal protective equipment (PPE), and implementing enhanced cleaning and sanitization measures throughout our facilities.

Education and Awareness

Our school places a strong emphasis on educating our students, staff, and parents about COVID-19 and the importance of proper hygiene and safety measures. We provide educational resources and conduct regular awareness campaigns to ensure everyone understands their role in preventing the spread of the virus.

Physical Distancing Measures

To facilitate physical distancing, we have implemented a range of measures at Solomon Schechter Day School. These measures include rearranging classroom layouts to allow for increased spacing between students, staggering schedules to minimize crowding in common areas, and limiting the capacity of gatherings and events held on campus.

Remote Learning Options

We understand that some students may be unable to attend in-person classes due to health concerns or other valid reasons. As a result, we have developed robust remote learning options that ensure uninterrupted education for all students. Our teachers are equipped with the necessary technology and resources to deliver engaging and interactive remote lessons.

Transportation Arrangements

If your child requires transportation to and from school, we have implemented strict guidelines for our transportation services. These guidelines include reduced capacity to allow for physical distancing, mandatory mask-wearing, enhanced sanitization procedures, and regular health screenings for drivers and students.

Enhanced Cleaning and Sanitization

To maintain a clean and safe environment, we have implemented enhanced cleaning and sanitization protocols throughout our school facilities. Our dedicated cleaning staff follows rigorous procedures to ensure high-touch surfaces, classrooms, restrooms, and common areas are regularly cleaned and disinfected. We use professional-grade cleaning products recommended by health authorities to effectively eliminate potential threats.

Hand Hygiene Practices

We promote frequent handwashing and encourage the use of hand sanitizers placed strategically throughout the school premises. Proper hand hygiene is an essential component in preventing the spread of COVID-19, and we ensure that our students and staff have easy access to necessary facilities and supplies.

Ventilation and Air Quality

We recognize the importance of good ventilation and air quality in reducing the risk of virus transmission. Our school facilities are equipped with proper ventilation systems that encourage the flow of fresh air and minimize the recirculation of potentially contaminated air. We regularly maintain and inspect our HVAC systems to ensure optimal performance.

Collaboration with Health Professionals

To stay up-to-date with the latest health guidelines and best practices, we actively collaborate with health professionals and local health authorities. This ensures that our COVID-19 health and safety protocols align with the most current recommendations and undergo regular reviews to adapt to any emerging developments.

Prompt Response and Communication

In the event of a confirmed COVID-19 case within our school community, we have established a clear protocol for prompt response and communication. We work closely with local health authorities to assess the situation, provide necessary notifications, and offer guidance to affected individuals regarding testing, self-isolation, and any required quarantine measures.

Mental Health Support

We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the mental well-being of our students and staff. We have dedicated resources to provide mental health support, including counseling services, virtual support groups, and access to professional assistance when needed.


At Solomon Schechter Day School, the health and safety of our community members remain our top priority. We have implemented comprehensive COVID-19 health and safety protocols to create a secure learning environment that minimizes the risks associated with the pandemic. By adhering to guidelines, facilitating physical distancing, maintaining cleanliness, collaborating with health professionals, and providing resources for mental health support, we aim to provide a safe educational experience for everyone involved.
