State of Our Schools: St. Joseph's School for the Deaf
Schools have had to make safety changes this year to keep students and staff safe, including at St. Joseph's School for the Deaf.
Students and teachers enter through separate entrances where they receive temperature checks. Anyone showing COVID-19 symptoms is immediately quarantined.
There are no more than six students to a class and teachers use see-through masks to help with signing.
Each desk is equipped with plexiglass.
About 40% of students are full remote learning and the school is closed Thursdays and Fridays for deep cleaning.
School officials say the school has spent roughly $100,000 to install safety measures, upgrade technology and provide PPE to students and staff.
