School districts have put together tentative plans for going back to school in the fall of 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many school reopenings are remote, while some districts have implemented a hybrid model that incorporates in-person classes. Any in-person classes may require plastic and plexiglass desk dividers for students, as well as increased social distancing signage and floor decals, and student drop-off and pick-up signage for safe transportation.

Clear Plastic Barriers and Social Distancing Signs

According to the U.S. National Institute of Health, student desk placement and educating students about social distancing are among the most feasible health measures during a pandemic. Fortunately, plastic privacy shields can help create a favorable environment for both desks and social distancing.

In their communication, ‘Preparing K-12 School Administrators for a Safe Return to School in Fall 2020,’ the CDC mentions social distancing several times. School desk dividers and social distancing signs and floor decals can be used to help influence safe student movement and spacing.
