Question: Does GLOBE have the equipment needed to support physical distancing?
Answer: Yes — GLOBE is prepared to be able to maintain physical distancing between students and staff on-campus. Students' workspaces will be spaced 4-6 feet apart. There is variation in the style of furniture in the classrooms (i.e. tables vs. individual desks) — however, since we are limiting class sizes during hybrid instruction, we will have the ability to ensure that students are appropriately distanced from one another. In areas where it is challenging for individuals to remain six feet apart, such as at reception desks, physical barriers such as plexiglass partitions will be installed.
Question: In last week's COVID Corner, it was mentioned that in the event there is a COVID case in a classroom, the cohort model will allow only that classroom to close. What about siblings of those potentially exposed students?
Answer: If a sibling's class has been asked to quarantine, any other students in the home should quarantine as well.
