    COVID-19: Creating a Safe Return to Schools with Portable Classrooms

    Even in this time of great uncertainty, one thing is certain: There will be big changes to schools when they reopen. What the new normal will look like continues to evolve, as the CDC, schools, and state and local health departments work together to strategize a safe, healthy return to school for students, families, and teachers.

    It’s also a given that schools must play a key role in containing the spread of COVID-19. Even as shelter-in-place mandates are lifted, schools need to prepare to offer enough space to maintain social distancing, in addition to implementing other public-health best practices and directives.

    Making Social Distancing Viable at School

    Depending on the local levels of infection rates, many schools will need extra space in order to keep desks a minimum of six feet apart and to provide room for overflow from reduced class sizes. For temporary or permanent additional space, modular units offer the flexibility to accommodate a range of needs.

    Because modulars are fast and easy to build and deliver to your site or campus, the time and cost savings can be significant, a huge benefit to school districts operating within limited budgets. As schools reopen, modular units can help with a number of immediate issues:

    • Provide necessary classroom space in the event that class sizes are reduced
    • Enables schools to place desks at least six feet apart
    • Expand administrative space
    • Create space for nurse’s office or on-campus triage and testing clinics
