The Taylorville School District recently released their Back to School plan and Elementary School Nurse Jenny Moats said that they’re doing everything possible to keep everyone safe from COVID-19. Moats said that they’re taking directives and keeping in close contact with the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE), and the local health department so that they have the latest and most up to date safety protocols and guidelines.
Each school will have a supply of PPE and an isolation room in case a student or staff member becomes ill during the school day.
Taylorville Superintendent Dr. Chris Dougherty is concerned about making sure that there’s enough daycare available for working families if remote learning has to be implemented and so she is working with the Christian County YMCA to put a plan in place.
The Taylorville School District, according to Moats, is asking every parent to assess their childs health before sending them to school each day.
The Taylorville School District, according to Dr. Dougherty, will have a crew of custodians that is solely dedicated to deep sanitation.
If you have yet to register your child for school, you can do so by visiting tcusd3.org.
