Back-to-School Overview
08/06/2020

The following are specific to New Braunfels High School:

 

1.2 Considerations Before Selecting

  • NBHS will be moving from a 7-period day to a modified A/B block bell schedule to decrease the number passing periods. This will also decrease teacher exposures to large numbers of students each day.

  • NBISD grading policy will be followed

 

3.1 Personal Protection

  • Masks will be mandatory for all students and staff members when social distancing is not possible. 

  • NBHS will provide students with a mask if the student does not have one.   Discipline consequences may be assigned to students who forget to bring their mask to school on multiple occasions. 

  • Teachers and staff will complete online health self screening form before entering the school each day

  • Teachers will use seating strategies to maintain social distancing in their classrooms (spacing desks/chairs the appropriate distance, moving tables further apart)

  • When  6 ft. social distancing is not feasible in the classroom, masks will be mandatory at all times in classrooms

  • Tables will be color coded blue and white to indicate which tables can be used during each lunch, (A lunch blue tables, B lunch white tables, C lunch blue, D lunch white) 

  • By alternating tables this also allows the custodians to effectively and efficiently clean the tables and allow disinfectant to dry
