  • Each school will ensure all existing and new Alcohol-based Hand-Rub Dispensers which are installed in any locations are in accordance with FCNYS 2020 Section 5705.5.
  • Installation of dividers in classrooms, libraries, cafeterias, auditoriums, gymnasiums, doors, and other points of congregation will be submitted to the OFP for approval. See detailed floor plans to OFP for review.
  • All new building construction and temporary quarter projects will be submitted to OFP for a full code review.
  • If any school in the district plans on using temporary or permanent tents we will provide plans adhering to the BCNYS.
  • Elwood UFSD will ensure that the existing or altered number of toilet and sink fixtures meet the minimum standards of the BCNYS.
  • Water bottle filling stations are available at each building. In those buildings where the one fountain per one hundred occupant guideline cannot be satisfied, bottled water will be provided. Additionally, staff and students will be encouraged to bring in their own water bottles.
  • All HVAC systems are routinely checked for operational performance and continually monitored to ensure proper ventilation and air flow.
  • Heating and ventilating maintenance is performed by district personnel.
  • All HVAC systems meet with OFP standards and meet the required code ventilation.
  • Utilizing current equipment, air intake (outside air), will be maximized in accordance with guidelines.
  • Ceiling fans will not be allowed as circulation of air would increase the disbursement of respiratory droplets.

Elwood is scheduled for a Visual Inspection in 2020 and a Building Condition Survey in 2023.

  • There are no scheduled alterations to our buildings or facilities that will violate compliance with either of these inspections.

Lead-In Water Testing

  • Once students have returned to the buildings, Lead-In Water testing will take place as required by NYS DOH regulation 67-4. The district’s engineers have already begun identifying which water outlets will be tested.
