Procedures in the time of COVID when visiting DeLand High School

All visitors, vendors, employees, and students must have temperature checked prior to entering campus. Visitors and vendors will check in at the front office through the RAPTOR security system before proceeding to office or meeting area. Any student-related events must be pre-approved by principal/designee and CDC guidelines followed while on site. If a district employee is hosting an event/meeting on our campus, he/she is responsible for meeting the group at the front entrance of the school (or auditorium, if using this facility) to record temperatures.


An additional cleaning fee will be applied to all facility rentals for sanitization of areas due to COVID.


Body temperature checking is mandatory.

  • All staff are required to go through a daily body temperature check as they enter the facility the first time.
  • Enter through the front (main entry area) and have the person at the reception window check your body temperature.
  • If you register a temperature at or above 100.4°F the first time you are checked, you will have to return to your car and wait for five (5) minutes before your temperature can be checked again.
  • If your temperature is still at or above 100.4°F the second time your body temperature is taken, you will be asked to go home for the day. Additional guidance will be provided in a letter.

The use of face coverings is required.

  • Face coverings/masks are required if you are in a meeting room and physical distancing of 3 ft. or more between individuals is difficult to maintain.

Social distancing guidelines:

  • Stay at least 3 feet (about 1 arm length) from other people in all areas—this includes but not limited to cubicles/work areas, restrooms, cafeteria, break areas, etc.
  • Waiting areas should have a maximum occupancy of four (4) people regardless of waiting area size.
  • Staff who work where the public is coming into their workspaces are allowed to use gloves, which will be provided by the district. Ask for masks and gloves from your supervisor or office supplies person.

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.

  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover coughs with a tissue or cough into your elbow.

Stay home if you are sick.

  • Please stay home when feeling ill.
  • Staff are requested to regularly monitor their health and temperature.
  • An employee who has a fever of 100.4°F or higher, has a cough, is short of breath or is otherwise feeling ill is encouraged to seek medical care.
