The Importance of Internal Communication
Keeping students, teachers, and staff informed is essential, regardless of the age level. When necessary digital signage can display key information and updates in real time. Divided-screen technology enables customized communications to specific groups or full screen emergency alerts campus-wide. The wireless digital display can show age-specific messaging in static image, animation, or HD video formats for optimal effectiveness.
There Are Many Ways We Can Help Stop COVID-19
Until there is a vaccine and an effective treatment, we are forced to use prevention and education as the first lines of defense. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control) has outlined recommendations for re-opening schools, and included in them are cleaning your hands and effective use of signage. Digital kiosks with integrated touchless hand sanitizer and temperature check help meet both of those recommendations.
Protecting Faculty and Staff
When discussing return to school, it is important to keep in mind that there are many other people at schools other than the students themselves. There are teachers and staff who are placing themselves at risk as well. We need to provide them the tools and resources to keep themselves and their charges safe in the halls and the classrooms.
Returning to School in the New Normal
In the end, schools will re-open and students, staff, and faculty will return. In order to be successful administrators will need to understand and address safety concerns. Whether they’re in elementary school, high school, or post-secondary, children are our future and their education is an essential part of that future. It’s up to us to put as many safety measures in place as possible, and to educate and communicate as much as we can to help suppress the spread of this virus. All of these factors will contribute to an overall protective shield against transmission.
Does Your School Have a Plan?
If you are a teacher, staff member, or a parent with returning students, find out what steps your school is taking to re-open safely. Does your school have a sanitation and communication plan? Preventative action now will help mitigate potential community spread upon return.
