School Re-Entry Information UPDATE
As a way to field YOUR questions and concerns, I want to have an OPTIONAL, staff ZOOM on Wednesday at 2:00. In case I don't have the answers and can get them, you CAN text/email me questions in advance.
I am curious HOW you are doing in regards to the COVID-era re-entry. I'd love it if you could reach out to me and let me know where you are today (because I bet it changes often):
1-We got this!
2-It's going to be okay.
4-I'm worried about all of this.

Safe Schools Modules
SafeSchools training is live for the 2020-2021 school year. Most required training has been published, but a small number of policy courses will be finalized and added in the coming weeks. Coursework deadlines for each semester are September 25, 2020, and January 22, 2021. Exempt employees are welcome to begin completing training at any time. Non-exempt employees who are scheduled to work during the summer may begin completing courses as long as they are timed in while doing so. All other non-exempt employees may begin completing training on their first work day (again, if they are timed in). Employees will login using their district ID (e00000).
A few updates and reminders:
- You'll notice that we have added a handful of courses pertaining to COVID-19 as part of our first semester training requirements. Employees who worked on-site this summer will still need to complete these courses even if they had reviewed similar content prior to July 1st.
- As a reminder, extra duty workers, coaches, and student teachers are required to complete SafeSchools training by the due dates listed, regardless of the semester or season in which they report to duty.
