Keep the Germs Away!

Help me give my students the protection they need to return to school safely in August. The plexiglass requested will provide 10 classrooms with sneeze guards for small group instruction tables.

My Students

Students at our North Carolina public elementary school come from diverse cultures and backgrounds.

This upcoming school year presents a lot of challenges for us as educators and our students.

There have been many recommendations on how to proceed in the safest way possible next year but it does not come with supplies or funding.

My school would like to start preparing for next year with as many safety precautions as possible before the students return in August.

My Project

There is a great deal of uncertainty as to what the typical school day is going to look like in August. My school is trying to be proactive by preparing the safest environment possible for our young learners before they arrive on campus.

The plexiglass I have requested will provide 10 classrooms with a layer of protection between the students and their teacher at small group instruction tables.

There are a lot of suggestions and recommendations for what schools could use in the Fall, but we need things bought and made before August. I thank you in advance for helping my school be proactive in their plans to get as prepared as possible for protecting our learners and educators from the Coronavirus.
