Some Questions Answered About Re-opening

September 01, 2020

Why isn’t Fox staggering its start and end times?
Many of our students take transit or they get dropped off by their parents. In particular, a large number come down from Burke Mountain on the 188. The bus schedule doesn’t align with a reasonable staggered start and end time, so we would either have a long wait between start times or we would have a large number of students waiting outside for their start time, and staff would have to ensure they are physically distanced. We also don’t want siblings split up by staggered start times.

We are a large building with a significant number of doors into the building. Students and staff will be directed to use the doors closest to their classroom, limiting the number of students entering at any given location. These doors will be clearly marked. Also, the building will be clearly marked with routes in, out and within the building. Students with a class in a portable, for example will not enter the main building, but will go directly to the portable.
