CDC issues new guidelines for American K-12 schools

The Center for Disease Control announced new guidelines for schools Kindergarten through the 12th grade.

With the very real prospect of the COVID-19 pandemic continuing into the next academic year, the purpose of the flow chart is guide school administrators in making the right choices when it comes to opening their districts and the schools within them.

The document reminds school officials that "it is important to check with state and local health officials and other partners to determine the most appropriate actions while adjusting to meet the unique needs and circumstances of the local community."

When schools reopen, teachers and staff member, many who have become techno conferencing wizards over the past two months, will also have to add health administration to their skill set. The national public health organization suggest schools come up with daily routine and set of procedures to check students and employees for COVID-19 symptoms.
