Opportunity Resource Services is diligent in providing students with safe experiences throughout the summer.   This includes providing transportation that will allow students to be at least 6 feet apart from each other during travel, limiting each trip to a safe and manageable number, providing required face coverings, and always having sanitary supplies available at all times.

In addition to the general sanitary procedures, students only travel individuals from their respective home schools. This precaution helps prevent the chances of cross-community contamination.
