DCIU Update: COVID-19
DCIU Releases Health and Safety Plan
DCIU and DCTS have created a Health and Safety Plan to serve as our organization’s guidelines for all programs and services to reopen safely. Our guidelines are tailored to the unique needs of DCIU and DCTS and provides for flexibility if the Governor moves our county from green to yellow during the 2020–2021 year. DCIU and DCTS recognize if the Governor declares our county in the red phase, DCIU and DCTS will implement the Continuity of Education Plans that were developed in the spring of 2020.

Resources for Parents of DCIU Students

DCIU staff have been working hard to ensure that our families have the most up to date information and feel assured that their child will be in a safe and healthy environment if they are returning to the classroom.

Several lines of communication have been created including newsletters and videos. Be sure to check out these resources so that you can direct our families to the information they need.
Print Shop Resources

As buildings reopen, the DCIU Print Shop is providing posters and signs to serve as reminders of best practices when it comes to the Health and Safety Plan. While many of us have been practicing these protocols for months now, it can be easy to forget in a new environment, such as the workplace. If you would like additional posters and signs, please visit the Print Shop page to place a request.
