Health & Safety Guidelines
Orono Schools is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for each employee, student, parent and visitor to our buildings. These guidelines identify and explain the practices and protocols to help ensure that the District has a safe and healthy learning environment and helps mitigate transmission of communicable diseases and illness in our school communities.
All staff, students, families and visitors are expected to comply with and follow district-established guidelines and protocols for the health and safety of our community. Site leaders and supervisors will comply with these provisions and support employees, as needed.
Guidelines may be updated, based on recommendations from the Minnesota Health Department.
