News and Information for the Week of September 13th
What Happens if My Child is Quarantined?
The elementary schools have developed plans in the event quarantines are needed. At the elementary level, quarantined students will participate in the daily classroom meeting. In addition, they will receive direct instruction, if they are well enough to participate, during specific times of the day. Each building will have a supplemental teacher who will provide instruction and support to students in quarantine. Please understand that this will need to be a fluid process based on the amount of students who are in quarantine throughout the building. Students who receive direct instruction from a special education teacher will join their group via Google Meet. In the event of a quarantine, information will be provided to families regarding the instructional plan via their child's Google Classroom. In order to communicate and plan the lessons, we typically need one school day in order to post the checklists and be ready to deliver instruction.
