Create spaces that inspire school spirit and fit every situation
Canopy Tents For Supply Curriculum Pickup
Many students will be learning remotely for the foreseeable future. However, they and their families may still need to come to schools in person to pick up educational materials, forms, and supplies. E-Z UP outdoor shelters allow schools to facilitate easy supply handouts to keep students, families, and educators safe. Custom graphics and floor decals can help facilitate students to pick-up spots for different grade levels and families.
It's become clear throughout the pandemic that schools aren't just educational facilities; they provide many other community services, and one of the most important is food service. Many school dining services organized ways to distribute food to students even when schools had to shut down, whether through onsite pickup or drive-by setups.
Outdoor shelters for schools can create a space for efficient onsite food pickup or a preparation and logistics area for organizing deliveries. E-Z UP outdoor shelters also provide protection from weather elements when food is involved.
Outdoors Shelter for School Classes
For schools with any amount of in-person learning, outdoor spaces are particularly important. School canopy tents can become sturdy, private outdoor classrooms, allowing students to continue learning with as few disruptions as possible. E-Z UP's custom graphics can create personalized tents to help schools arrange clearly labeled learning spaces to ease the new normal transition. E-Z UP durable tents will keep students and faculty safe from different weather conditions, and optional sidewalls can increase privacy and reduce distractions.
Schools may need to increase or decrease the number of classrooms throughout the year, so shelters that are easy to move, put up, and take down are key.
Screening & COVID Testing
Depending on each school's safety policies, they may need to implement screening or testing protocols for students, faculty, and staff. For safety, those screenings should take place before entering buildings, and outdoor canopies will allow all school community members to be screened or tested in a comfortable environment, no matter the weather. It's also important for schools to canopy tents to have plenty of space for those waiting to be screened to maintain social distancing.
Distancing and Crowd Management
Schools will need to develop ways to manage crowds during the school day and for special events. Whether it's students waiting to come in first thing in the morning, or others waiting for their ride home at the end of the day, sheltered outdoor spaces will help create safe waiting areas where students can stay distant. Schools may hold a larger space for students for spirit events or assemblies with the right outdoor solutions.
Extreme Weather Safety
If students and faculty need to be outdoors during extreme heat, wind, or even light rain, the right shelter and sidewalls will make all the difference in providing protection and comfort from weather elements. E-Z UP custom canopies with sidewalls keep students and staff safe with a UV-protected, and wind-tunnel canopy tents providing a safe educational environment.
From fire drills to other emergency preparedness actions, schools need ways to safely move students around without compromising COVID policies. Having outdoor tents ready for drills (or in the unfortunate case of an actual disaster) will ensure that schools are truly prepared for any emergency.
