Oak Creek Facilities Preparations
Our facilities department has been busy getting our building ready for students and staff! Here is a list of changes that have made to all buildings in the district to ensure we are taking every possible precaution. The biggest concern staff/parents have had is air filtration. Westridge has new ionization units that were installed. They contain and fight airborne particles passing through involving Covid and smoke. These new units are on all the time when the building is occupied.
Additional preparations include:
*Changed all air filters in units.
*Added Ionization units to all AHUs that provide air into building, univentilators, and MAUs.
*Placed hospital grade HEPA units in offices, classrooms, health rooms, and areas with not fresh outside air spaces.
*Increased fresh air flow from outside, recirculated less interior air, locked on exhaust fans, changed belts and filters.
*Added hands free hand sanitizer stations throughout.
*Placed disinfectant bottles and microfiber towels in classrooms, offices, and commonly used spaces.
*Provided wayfinding stickers and signs for students and visitors for building use.
*Placed daily disinfecting check off sheets for each room.
