Recognize That School will be Different now: The traditional classroom setting will be different until things return to normal. Temperature checks, social distancing, frequent hand sanitizing, frequent sanitizing of high-contact surfaces, shorter lunch breaks, etc. will be a part of the new school system. Many school events may also be canceled or conducted virtually.  Some schools might choose to conduct outdoor classes if situation permits.

Be Ready to Switch: Schools may choose to adopt a mix of both offline and online classes. Half-day or alternate day classes may also be adopted to teach in small clusters rather than large groups. Be ready to switch to these new schedules if they are applied.
