To our PreK-12 clients:

The California Department of Education (CDE) has issued a Guidebook for the Safe Reopening of California Public Schools.

This guidance was created through the statewide reopening schools task force that fostered a collaborative process for educators and stakeholders to lend their important voices. Also informed by the technical assistance and advice of many health and safety organizations including the Centers for Disease Control, California Department of Public Health, and California Division of Occupational Safety and Health, the intent of this document is to be a guide for the local discussion on safely reopening schools.

HMC is actively engaged in research to explore how design is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re working closely with school districts and communities to gather input and look forward to working alongside our PreK-12 clients to redefine and future-proof resilient and safe schools in a post-COVID era.
