Super Chat

The September edition of the "Super Chat" podcast is now online at www.southwestschools.org/podcast.

In this episode, Superintendent John Hamstra describes the "Responsible Restart" plans for the Southwest Local School District, which was shaped using guidance from state and local health officials.  Arrival procedures are discussed, including "clearing stations" where temperatures will be taken and hand sanitizer will be used before entering the buildings.  Water bottle filling stations, outdoor learning environments, cafeteria/recess procedures, and bus transportation changes are all covered.  Spectator guidelines for fall athletic events are also outlined.

*It should be noted that all information was current as of the recording date of the podcast in late August, and is subject to change at any time based on updated information from the State and local health agencies.

Mr. Hamstra also gives an update on the constructions projects - both the new schools and the high school renovations.
