Hand Sanitizer Information

Cleaning hands at key times with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% ethanol or 70% isopropyl alcohol content (if soap and water is not readily available) is one of the most important steps a person can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to those around you.

According to Delaware Department of Education Emergency Order regarding Regulation 817 Medications and Treatments, parents/guardians are not required to provide permission for their student to use hand sanitizer but can indicate to the school that their student is unable to use hand sanitizer or needs assistance with self-use of hand sanitizer.

Please let your School Nurse know if your student should NOT use hand sanitizer or will need assistance. Thank you!

School Reopening Information

On Monday, August 17, 2020, the Seaford Board of Education voted to open our schools in a hybrid manner. Please note that those families who selected “100% Remote” on the questionnaire, will start the year as “100% Remote”. The district will work closely with the Delaware Division of Public Health to monitor the amount of community spread that is occurring with Covid-19. Each week, we will analyze these numbers which will help us in our decision making process. We all must do our part in order that employees and students stay healthy. Masks will be worn at all times. The best guidance to stay healthy is to wear a mask and to remain socially distant. Our custodial staff has done a great job acquiring all cleaning and PPE supplies needed for reopening. Our first priority as a district is to ensure the health and safety of our staff and students.

The first day of school for all students, 100% remote and hybrid, will be September 8, 2020. Principals will reach out to all families to share information specific to a child’s school.

For the first marking period, as we instruct students in both 100% remote and hybrid models, the school day hours are as follows:
• Preschool: 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM
• West Seaford Elementary & Blades Elementary: 9:00 AM-2:30 PM
• Fred Douglass Elementary & Central Elementary: 9:15 AM-2:45 PM
• Seaford Middle School: 7:30 AM-1:00 PM
• Seaford High School: 7:30 AM-1:00 PM

We are excited to get the 2020-2021 school year started. Please be on the lookout for more information from your child’s school.
