The Cost of Reopening Schools Safely – Euclid City Schools

Spectrum News 1 |

From portable fogging systems to thermal imaging cameras, Euclid City School District in Northeast Ohio has seemingly thought of it all in terms of protecting its students and staff from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The additional technology and cleaning equipment plus the over 1,100 gallon drums of hand sanitizer ordered, 10,000 customized Euclid Schools face masks for students, and additional 40,000 disposable masks, and more…the price does not come cheap.

“Altogether we’ve spent about $790,000 on all the layers of protection that we put in place within the district,” said Patrick Higley, executive director of business operations at Euclid City School District.
