Our Risk Reduction Toolkit

GWSD will reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 through a layered approach of multiple risk management strategies to keep children in school as much as is safe and possible. It is not one strategy that reduces this risk; it is a concerted effort on many fronts.


The following nine tools together will allow our school community to be the difference in reducing spread of COVID-19:

  1. Daily Health Screenings
  2. Illness Protocols
  3.  Handwashing
  4.  Respiratory Etiquette
  5.  Face Coverings
  6.  Physical Distancing
  7.  Reducing Contacts
  8.  Ventilation Practices
  9. Cleaning, Sanitizing, and Disinfecting Protocols


We may never be able to achieve 100% fidelity in implementing these strategies 100% of the time. Continued efforts to maximize the use of these tools, though, will create a safer environment that minimizes the spread of COVID-19. Our Protocols for application of the Toolkit are broken out by setting in Appendix 2.
