Despite various and contradicting views on reopening schools this fall, some are indeed planning to resume learning as it was meant to be. Students thrive off of in-person education and community, and parents look forward to leaving teachers fully in charge of teaching again. However, one health and safety concern that some schools may face is the facilities themselves. Some schools use mobile classroom trailers to host student learning. Is your classroom trailer something to worry about? Here’s what you should know.
Health and Safety Concerns
Mobile classroom trailers are meant to be temporary solutions to a lack of space; ideally, the school building would have an extension so that students in the mobile trailers could return to the main building. However, renovations cannot always happen at once. A mobile trailer is designed to keep students safe within the school premises, with a fully-finished exterior and interior, HVAC, and a security door and windows. In general, a standard classroom trailer has everything one needs to stay healthy and safe. Even so, it is best to contact your mobile trailer provider for the details of their products.
Classroom Trailer Maintenance Tasks
With eight locations throughout the United States’ east coast, Allied Trailers is a proud provider of reliable trailers and storage units. Allied never outsources their products and offers full service for any maintenance, delivery, or customer service needs one might have. If you rent or purchase a classroom trailer from them, you can be sure that you are working with a trustworthy company.
Regular maintenance one can do is to manage the unit’s HVAC system and clean the interior thoroughly and regularly. The summer is a great time to check over your units’ condition. HVAC filters need replacing just like those at home, and thorough cleaning will help keep mold and mildew at bay. Should any serious leaks or other damage occur in the unit, call Allied for assistance.
Making Your Trailer Welcoming
Schools may opt to stagger student schedules to avoid crowding. In a classroom trailer, one can do the same and limit the occupancy or rent a bigger trailer. Checking the ventilation system is crucial to making the trailer safe. Meanwhile, when you do reopen your doors, make your space as welcoming as possible. Classroom trailers can be a place where teachers can creatively use wall space and aid visual learning. Add a plant or two, and the trailer becomes homey.
