Student Safe Activities During The COVID-19 Pandemic
CLEBURNE, Texas – Opportunity Resource Services, administrators of the Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math & Science grant-funded programs which serve high school-aged students in Keene, Rio Vista, Alvarado, & Venus, has developed and planned safe and educational field trips for students in the program service area during the COVID-19 pandemic.
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.
The Upward Bound programs have organized 14 educational experiences for all program participants enrolled in the Upward Bound Summer Program. The 2020 ORS Upward Bound Summer Program strives to provide additional educational opportunities for students through virtual online courses, work-study programs, virtual college tours, guest speakers & educational field trips.
