CAMPUS DISINFECTING & VENTILATION

The successful return to our campuses relies upon the cleaning and disinfecting practices our staff employs, as well as the products and tools we now use. This page will provide you with general information on our tools and practices and we welcome further questions. Please contact Jake Finch at jake.finch@simivalleyusd.org for additional questions or clarification. 

Cleaning & Disinfecting

Campuses will follow guidelines developed by local and state public health agencies for cleaning, disinfection, and ventilation of school campuses.

Custodians & Staff will maintain appropriate cleaning procedures. 

Cleaning and disinfecting schedules have been created to maintain safe learning spaces.

Classrooms, restrooms, and all high touch surfaces will be disinfected throughout the day and between sessions.

High touch surfaces will be cleaned daily. (e.g. countertops, door handles, restrooms, student desks, student chairs)

Electrostatic sprayers will be used to provide the most effective rapid disinfection of student and staff areas.

The sharing of items between students will be minimized. Essential shared materials will be regularly cleaned and disinfected.

Each student’s learning materials will be kept with the student to avoid sharing to the extent feasible

All staff using cleaning products will be properly trained.   

The use of shared playground equipment is prohibited and measures to prevent student access will be taken such as supervision and signage.  

EPA-approved disinfectant products will be used. The list of products used is HERE.

Buses will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after students have been transported. 

Drivers are provided with disinfectant wipes and busses are sanitized on a daily basis. .

Schools will operate on a 1:1 model of electronic devices. If electronic devices are shared, the device will be cleaned and disinfected between student use.

Did you know?

Consistent air flow combined with the use of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) and physical distancing is considered to be the best strategy for controlling the spread of Covid-19 by health department standards.

Ventilation

Currently the CDC (Center Disease Control) and ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers) recognizes consistent air flow as the most significant factor in maintaining healthy air quality and reducing infectious agents.

SVUSD currently uses the most effective air filters available without reducing air flow.

All classrooms receive a minimum of five fresh air exchanges per hour.
