Elizabeth Board of Education President Jerry Jacobs and his fellow Board Members are touring schools throughout the district as Elizabeth Public Schools continues its preparations for the reopening of buildings to team members and students for in-person teaching and learning. Among the recent measures that have been taken by the district is the installation of air purifiers in each district classroom and office. Classroom desks have also been arranged to provide a safe distance between students as well as between teachers to students. Custodians have continued to conduct daily cleaning protocols, including cleaning various touchpoints and surfaces, sanitizing school environments with electrostatic sprayers, wet mopping floors, and maintaining hand sanitizing stations. Teachers are preparing to provide both in-person and remote instruction while creating an inviting learning environment for students. After more than a year, Elizabeth Public Schools is excited to open its doors again to welcome back students and team members for in-person instruction.
