How Rhode Island Reopened Schools During a Pandemic
For the New York Times
At LaPerche Elementary School Principal Julie Dorsey takes a student’s temperature as students arrive on October 08, 2020 in Smithfield, Rhode Island. All students must fill out a form about possible Covid-19 symptoms and have their temperature taken at the start of the day.
Students desks are spaced out instead of the normal groupings and sometimes there are empty desks from students who had a high temperature and are waiting for a negative test result.
A reading class is held at the quiet end of the schoolyard with a portable speaker while students sit separated on beach towels.
