Campus Safety & Cleaning Protocols

One of our core values is to provide safe, student-centered, world-class schools and facilities – and that won’t change. In addition to extensive maintenance and cleaning practices already in place, Clovis Unified has implemented health and safety actions at our campuses that were developed with the guidance of local public health officials and the Centers for Disease Control.

  • Schools are cleaned three times a day using a disinfectant approved by the EPA that kills COVID.
  • High-use surfaces are cleaned regularly by custodians, and classrooms and offices are fogged with a deep disinfectant treatment each evening.
  • Teachers are provided hand sanitizer and disinfectant for their classrooms.
  • Anyone entering a classroom is required to sanitize his or her hands.
  • Bathrooms are disinfected multiple times a day, and soap and paper towels are replenished regularly. All students are expected to wash their hands after using the restroom.

The district has a special, on-call team trained on disinfecting practices as dictated by CDC should a student/staff member get sick in a classroom or test positive for COVID.

Scheduled Cleaning on a Typical School Day

  • Before School: Disinfecting stations and supplies for classrooms stocked for the day.
  • Mid Morning: Disinfect all high-touch campus surfaces (door handles, countertops, etc.), bathrooms and administrative areas.
  • After Lunch: Disinfect Multipurpose Rooms, bathrooms and high-touch campus surfaces (door handles, countertops, etc.), bathrooms and administrative areas.
  • After School: Deep disinfection of all classrooms, bathrooms and administrative areas using electrostatic backpack sprayers.

Cleaning & Disinfecting

  • At least twice daily, disinfect frequently touched hard surfaces (e.g. tables, desks, chairs, door handles, light switches, phones, copy/fax machines, bathroom surfaces, drinking fountains, etc.).
  • Daily extensive disinfecting and cleaning of classrooms, offices and workspaces, to take place each evening.

General Safety Protocols

  • Limit sharing of devices such as phones and copying machines, with disinfectant available for between uses.
  • Utilize hand sanitizer and personal protective equipment.

Disinfecting Details

Clovis Unified is using disinfectants approved by the EPA as COVID-killing products to clean and sanitize our campuses. The video below describes Clovis Unified’s four-layer process to promote healthy facilities now and into the future, including installation of bipolar ionization units that work within our existing HVAC system to enhance indoor air quality.
