Health & Safety
Thanks for visiting the Princeton Public Schools Health and Safety webpage. My name is Keith Barlage, the Director of Buildings and Grounds. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns about the facilities here at the Princeton Public Schools.
If a new chemical is brought into the school, an SDS must be submitted to Keith Barlage to add to the SDS database.
The safety of our staff, volunteers, children, families and our communities is our top priority and therefore we want to communicate what our plan is to mitigate this pandemic. Our goal is to reduce the potential for transmission of COVID-19, and that requires full cooperation among all of us. Only through this cooperative effort can we establish and maintain the safety and health of all persons in our community.
This preparedness plan identifies and explains district procedures to help mitigate transmission of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in our school community. As restrictions change, District 477# will adjust procedures accordingly but retain the right to implement more stringent measures if issues arise or an outbreak occurs.
Before participating in school and school programs, every child/family must:
- Review this COVID-19 Preparedness Plan and take responsibility to follow its requirements.
- For summer programs ONLY, review the Princeton Public Schools-Summer 2021 Programming-Overview and confirm you have read and understand your responsibility to do a daily wellness self-screen prior to entering any district building and isolate/quarantine as requested.
This plan is continuously updated as needed, and follows the state’s applicable executive orders, and current guidance and standards from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). If you have questions about the plan, contact the program coordinator for your school or district building.
