Belton ISD Staff Scheduled to Return from Remote Work
Belton ISD’s administrative staff is preparing to return to their offices Monday, July 6, after working remotely since mid-March when the district closed due to COVID-19.
“Safety for our staff remains a top priority,” said Todd Schiller, assistant superintendent for human resources. “We’re excited to get everyone back in the office as planning for next year ramps up, but we’re making sure steps are in place to keep people safe.”
Those steps follow CDC and local health official guidance including reminding staff to wash hands frequently, use hand sanitizer between washings and keep 6 feet apart.
Staff members are required to wear a face mask when in hallways or common spaces as well as when social distancing is not feasible, Schiller said. They’ve also been asked to avoid gathering in break rooms.
Employees are expected to monitor themselves and members of their household for symptoms of COVID-19 and stay home if anyone exhibits symptoms or has been exposed to someone who has tested positive.
Custodial staff is also on hand to properly clean and disinfect workspaces, Schiller said.
Visitors to district offices are limited to essential business that is not able to be conducted remotely. The public is encouraged to continue reaching staff by phone or email.
“If an in-person meeting is required,” Schiller said, “we ask that you please make an appointment with the staff member and wear a mask when inside district facilities.”
