Before schools reopen and students return to the classroom, school administrators are reviewing their school layouts and looking for ways to quickly add space to support CDC social distancing guidelines. Here are a few ways portable classrooms can support school districts as they prepare to reopen in the summer or fall.
Quickly Add Space for Social Distancing at School
Classroom must have enough space to keep everyone at a safe distance. As a result, most school facilities are not enough to host currently enrolled students. WillScot portable classrooms can be used for extra space for social distancing and growing school populations and can be installed nearly anywhere on campus.
Include Swing Space for Uninterrupted Learning
Before schools reopen, it is also a good idea to check if your school has future construction plans that could impact access to classrooms and administrative buildings. If so, you may want to consider using modular buildings for the office, classroom or storage swing space you will need to help students and staff maintain social distancing at school when construction begins.
Fast and Efficient Installation Anywhere on Campus
Portable classrooms provide a fast and flexible way to add more space to your campus with minimal disruption to your school. They can be placed almost anywhere, from a soccer field to a parking lot and installed around your schedule. As your needs change, portable classroom space can be added, expanded or removed, so you pay only for the space you need.
Prepare Your Classrooms to be Ready on Day One
In addition to flexible installation times and site configurations, portable classrooms can be equipped with everything needed to be ready to learn from day one, including entry steps and ramps, prewired data hubs, desks, tables, chairs and more.
While schools prepare to reopen, district administrators and leaders must keep in mind that that this is not a complete return to normal and that according to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, (UNESCO), “[schools] must do things not only differently, but better.” Choosing to reopen your school district with extra portable classroom space will help your students and staff maintain safe social distances, continue uninterrupted learning in modular swing space during future renovations and ultimately return back to school ready to learn with minimal distractions.
