It is very important that we all have a safe place to learn and work, and Hawken has worked hard to add additional resources and cleaning protocols to make sure our facilities meet the recommendations for safety. These include:
Housekeeping and custodial staff:
Our staff will be providing regular cleaning and sanitizing of the public areas, bathrooms, bus seats, and high-touch areas. In addition to daily cleaning protocols, classrooms and common areas will be cleaned every night to ensure that soiled areas are addressed. Additional sanitization that allows for deep cleaning and disinfection have been purchased for our campuses as recommended by the CDC.
Frequent cleaning and sanitizing:
In addition to our staff cleaning, we will work to limit shared usage of more difficult to clean items such as keyboards, art supplies, or phones, throughout the day. Classrooms will be provided with supplies to supplement the cleaning by housekeeping, so that desks, tables, and chairs can be sanitized when needed. Additional cleaning protocols for lunch spaces will be in place for housekeeping, faculty, and students.
We have replaced most of the paper towel dispensers and soap dispensers with hands-free versions.
