SCHOOL DISTRICT GOALS:
Capital Project Update
Powerful Teaching and Learning
Other districts across our state have opened successfully with hybrid models with rates much higher than 25 per 100,000, and I am confident that we can also safely open. We have strong protocols and plans in place to mitigate transmission risk and also have a strong education plan.
This decision also is in line with the opening plans of other regional districts. Thank you for all your efforts in preparation for this hybrid education model!
- Many things are happening around the district this week in preparation for the returning of students to the schools. Here’s a quick list of some of the great preparations staff are making for those eventful days ahead of us:
Nurse Jill has been putting together health bins for all the classrooms. They will contain basic first aid supplies and thermometers. She has also been working with the Family Health Center (FHC) on donations and was informed they are donating 3000 surgical masks and 1000 KN95 masks. They are going to work on getting thermometers to hand out to families to donate as well.
The maintenance staff have been arranging rooms to ensure students are 6 ft. apart. They’ve also supplied each classroom with cleaning supplies, sanitizer, and other COVID-related PPE.
Staff are training in student screening procedures.
Food service staff have been working to continue adjusting the food serving plans and serving schedule to accommodate the soon to start hybrid program schedule.
The transportation department is adjusting route times and drivers’ schedules from delivering meals and transporting our small group students to a more regular busing schedule.
