West G makes sanitizing efforts
Cleaning protocols at the West Geauga Local School District have evolved throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The custodial and maintenance departments have been safely disinfecting the school buildings and transportation vehicles using sanitizing backpacks with chemicals that are safe and effective, the district said. Throughout the school day, building custodians treat lockers, desks, door handles and other high traffic areas using these machines. The buses and other transportation vehicles are treated between the secondary and elementary runs.
New look, same instruction
Students at West Geauga Local Schools are back in the classrooms. While the rooms look different than previous years due to social distancing requirements, teachers and staff have continued their instruction by challenging and engaging their students. Even with the changes, including wearing masks and having desks spaced 6 feet apart, the district said, students have remained focused and involved in the learning process.
“I am very grateful for each day I get to spend with my amazing students,’ first grade teacher Patty Trentanelli said. “They inspire me to appreciate and be thankful for the little things in life! I couldn’t be more proud of their strength and positivity!”
