School Facilities

PCS will implement an abundance of school-wide mitigation measures and extra safety protocols for the 2021-22 school year. PCS will follow key mitigation guidance as defined within the WVDE’s School Recovery & Guidance Document.

PCS school safety protocols will include these mitigation measures.

  • Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the school building to include classrooms, cafeteria, and gymnasiums.

  • Tissues will be available for students in each classroom.

  • Desks and frequently touched areas should be cleaned regularly.

  • Restrooms will be sanitized throughout the school day while students are present. Frequently touched areas such as doorknobs, tabletops, stair rails, faucet handles, toilet handles, playground equipment, light switches, desks, chairs, kitchen countertops, cafeteria, and service tables will be sanitized on an established schedule.

  • Hallway traffic will socially distance to the greatest extent possible.

  • Class equipment that will need to be used by multiple students will be sanitized regularly.

  • Alternate water sources and disposable cups will be made available. Students may bring a reusable water container.

  • Pick-up and drop-off procedures will be developed by building-level administrators. Parents will be required to remain outside of the building to receive students.

  • School administration will communicate campus-specific arrival and dismissal procedures.

School Visitors

All visitors having direct access to students during the school day shall wear a mask or show proof of vaccination before permission is granted enter the school building. This does not apply to those entering the main office for student pick-up, drop-off, etc.
