  Bayer School is remodeling our Entry Point to provide monitoring and screening

Gate A and the adjacent room will become the greeting and screening area. Screening will include health and temperature checks for anyone entering campus.

Our front office is being divided into 2 areas, one for guests and visiting parents, and one for our staff and students.  Our front parent lounge will also have resources for our virtual students including teacher mailboxes and copier/scanner resources.

  Reduced class sizes to accommodate additional student spacing in the classrooms.

Student work areas are either socially distanced or there are barriers between students to protect them from virus transmission.  Student masks may be worn intermittently inside when they cannot social distance.

  Air Handlers provide outside air along with re-circulated air

Ventilation and time in indoor shared spaces are critical factors in Coronavirus transmission.  Introducing fresh air into the room ventilation systems is important in suppressing transmission of the virus.  At Bayer schools, our air handlers provide the additional fresh air into all our classrooms.

How Do Virtual Classrooms Work?

Students are attending classes every day using Zoom – and teachers are not skipping a beat on lessons!

For PK3-4th grade, teachers have setup a virtual classroom. Some grades have fun additions like Kindergarten’s Sunset Storytime in the evening,  or popup Zoom lunches together.

Older students who rotate classrooms and subjects can switch from class to class by joining their next Zoom meeting, and teachers provide work on Google Classroom. Like all middle school students, they are in classes all day.  There has been no compromise to their education.

“To the teachers – they have never wavered, prepared exceedingly, and have laid out a plan for the students that makes this as normalized as possible for them.  That is simply more than I could have ever hoped for as a parent.”

Parent Feedback

Parents are a crucial part to virtual learning, and have been quick to give feedback and help navigate this process with teachers and students. Here’s what they have to say about the experience:

“Wow! I’ve experienced and heard from my son that he has great days at school. To watch it in action, in an environment that has thrown challenges to these teachers, to say they are truly phenomenal is an understatement. This past week has been a true testament to the love and dedication the teachers and administration have for our kids and our families. Though the kids are not physically together, these teachers ensure they are part of the class.”

“All citizens have so many unknowns and changes and fear in their lives now, but somehow, in something so important that I know many parents around Arizona, the country, and the world are fretting over their kids’ education, you have managed to make this feel so comforting for us.”
