The sniffles letter and guidance will be so helpful!!!
Lorraine Greer Greer
39:08
When do you expect that letter to be released?
Mimi O'Connor
39:30
Sounds great Dianne. Will there also be an update to the Governor's Safer At Home order, and that seems to be the "go to" for many providers to assure compliance.
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
39:52
I have 3 children just today that have stuffy/runny nose. 1 has siblings present. I have PreK graduation tomorrow and 2 children are part of that. That letter is critical. When will you have it?
Jennifer Briggs
40:33
We really need ot see the 2.0 child care guidance updated to reflect the content of th sniffles letter. This is our governing document to
Susan Cummings
41:38
agree with Kathy - Sent a parent to testing and their doctor refused to provide the test for in appropriate symptoms. Family suffers for a runny nose - not to mention mom out of work for 2 weeks!
Hanover Teacher

lisa jack certificate please ljfitnessfoy@yahoo.com

Will the letter for sickness be a recommendation, requirement, order from the governor or a licensing rule? Thanks
Mimi O'Connor
44:53
Great news about the disinfecting wipes! Defintiely something that is hard to find!
Cellissa Hoyt
45:52
Can Dianne provide an update about when the CCRSP "allowable use" detail will be shared?
Linda Tremblay
46:56
How do we find out when we can pick up those supplies left for original eccp providers before the governor opened up?
childguidance@comcast.net
47:47
Thank you for talking about the funding uses . I was unable to make the last meeting.
Cellissa Hoyt
47:54
I hear a lot of questions about how revenue losses fits in with allowable expenses
mysch
48:34
Where can we see the first webinar for CCRSP you mentioned?
childguidance@comcast.net
49:40
So that needs to be made clear that losses can be used on the invoice.
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
49:51
I was allocated funding. I have not invoiced yet. I am waiting to see a document for what is allowable and what the supporting documentation is required. I am so nervous about not using it properly.
Pam
49:51
With School-Agers returning to schools, has any thought been given to school-agers wearing masks at our programs? I have a handful of parents of younger children asking.
Janell Davis
51:44
Our school is requiring it. Our program is doing it as well.
Cellissa Hoyt
52:21
I think it's been confusing to see previous slides about this saying regular expenses are not an allowed use. However lost revenue is an appropriate use and it is ok to use it for a regular expense.
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
52:57
I'm also nervous about overlapping PPP and CCRSP
Jennifer Briggs
53:14
We had 17000 in lost revenue in march/April. This is already an allowable expense?
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
55:35
So what is the required support material for that?
Cellissa Hoyt
58:04
So it's ok to say "I used the CCRSP funds to offset the lost revenue I experienced March - August"?
childguidance@comcast.net
59:06
Great question!
Fire Tablet
59:36
If I am losing $5000.00/week right now can I use the money to pay my fixed expenses that are ongoing that I would have been able to pay prior to covid. Also lost $60,000 plus March through May.
Cellissa Hoyt
59:50
My budgeted and expected income was $100,000 but I was closed for 4 weeks and I have reduced capacity when I opened so my actual income was $50,000... as an example?
childguidance@comcast.net
01:03:33
Thanks that webinar would be great!
Linda Tremblay
01:04:32
We had to split our playground to decrease group size. Can we use funds for new playground equipment for the new section?
Julie McConnell, Early Learning NH
01:04:38
Thanks for that point Dianne. That will apply in particular to getting the Round 2 funding out as well.
Jennifer Briggs
01:05:16
Is the stay at home guidance going to be revised based on the sniffles letter
Cellissa Hoyt
01:05:55
It would be great if Dianne's webinar, Q&A incorporates the questions that have come up today and the clarification shared today
Linda Tremblay
01:05:58
Good question Jennifer!
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
01:06:58
Can you please request that Dr Chan, et al clarify siblings - one with symptoms, one without (stuffy nose, runny nose). Are both asked to remain out of care? Please clarify the 10 v 14 days quarantining.
sue@acornschoolnh.com
01:07:49
How will receive the sniffles letter?
Janell Davis
01:07:54
I asked them how we would know if a child used the $50 deposit and they said it will show on the child's account although they are not linked right away to programs so there is a delay in knowing who has used that option.
Linda Tremblay
01:08:15
also the fever.....test or quarantine is the requirement correct? I emailed a few times after the last webinar didn't get an answer.
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
01:08:37
Are new students being added to the scholarship program? Is there a backlog?
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
01:10:17
Will scholarship cover remote learning for kindergarten at a center?\
Mimi O'Connor
01:10:19
Thank you Dianne!
Jennifer Briggs
01:10:33
you deserve a great vacation!
mysch
01:13:51

not sure
Linda Tremblay
01:14:26
We have been forced to close our school age program. :) as of Aug 28
Claire Doody
01:15:39
I can’t actually answered as worded as in our Montessori School we have 2 classrooms - one serves children 3-6 years old and the other is an Elementary classroom with 6-12 year olds.
Jennifer Briggs
01:15:46
we are requesting a waiver for school age children so they can attend here FT.
Claire Doody
01:15:57
answer
Fire Tablet
01:15:58
We run a school age program but may stop it if the pop up places take too much of our school age business
Claire Doody
01:16:25
we do not take scholarship students at this time.
Mimi O'Connor
01:16:26
pop ups will be addressed in this call...
Susan Cummings
01:16:42
Would love to - but space and ratios create a barrier
Linda Tremblay
01:17:10
We typically have 15 plus or minus kids. The unknown is forcing us to close. Our district hasn't finalized plans yet. Who pays for them is a huge factor. Our parents cannot afford to pay 3 full days out of pocket....this unknown is what lead us to close. As well as staffing issues.
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
01:17:12
We are keeping our town Kindergarten kiddos who are graduating from our PreK program tomorrow. We will help facilitate remote kindergarten learning.
Janell Davis
01:17:31
Yikes... Thank you for sharing that. Could make our plans changes..
Cellissa Hoyt
01:18:24
Hearing about many programs that will offer full day to SA and most of their kids are private pay. I know many folks are worried about the financial impact of this on families knowing this could continue all school year.
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
01:18:42
Can you please repeat your comment about the 5.5 hour waiver?
Janell Davis
01:18:46
We are going with what our school district says
mysch
01:19:00
School age masking guidance would be greatly appretiated
Cellissa Hoyt
01:19:16
We spent much of the SELA call today on this SA topic and programs are experiencing a wide range of requirements, strategies, etc in terms of how handling this question
mysch
01:21:35
Yes Parents are calling daily for school age children
Jennifer Briggs
01:23:05
Round 2 invoices are being submitted tomorrow morning.
Pam
01:23:24
I just got our CCRSP while I have been on the call!
Hanover Teacher
01:23:26
no but I haven’t sent anything back in yet
Claire Doody
01:23:46
Have not invoiced yet.
childguidance@comcast.net
01:23:54
Not yet. I have not invoiced yet.
Susan Cummings
01:23:57
Have not yet received invoice package -
Kim McKenney
01:24:00
We have invoiced but have not received - Easterseals
Cellissa Hoyt
01:24:03
I wonder if that SA waiver application could be posted somewhere for quick easy access as licensing is likely to get so many individual requests?
Susan Cummings
01:24:52
Can you email the invoice package instead of mail?
Jennifer Briggs
01:25:04
we calculated a projected loss of 100000, and only received 1/4 of that. So yes, we could use more funds. LOL.
mysch
01:25:59
We received close to half of what we asked for.
Kim McKenney
01:26:15
There is an application - but we received a yes in an email
Maureen Donnellan Anderson
01:26:54
We have one teacher who wanted to bring her second grader to our child care center licensing up to kindergarten. When we called DHHS to confirm what I have heard here, This was their answer " If your licensing currently encompass school age children, you will need to do a revision and request fire and health to review the space to increase the ages and a new license will be issued."
Pam
01:27:01
Yes, there is a waiver form. I was told the form needed to come directly from your licensor. It took me 20 mintues to fill out
Kim McKenney
01:27:08
I can email
Pam
01:27:31
if you specify, the licensor will actually give you the rule
Melissa’s iPhone
01:28:35
I feel that staffing is not talked about lately. I am still having staffing issues and this is some of the reason taking more children is an issue.
Julie McConnell, Early Learning NH
01:28:46
It would be helpful to know from DHHS the total amount of needs requested through CCRSP vs. the award amounts.
Kim McKenney
01:29:00
if you email me at kmckenney@eastersealsnh.org I can send you
Jennifer Briggs
01:29:05
Oh goodnesss, staffing is still a terrible issue
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
01:29:17
I agree. Trying not to use floaters is exceedingly difficult. I have already cut my hours to 7-5, but that is 10 hours...a 50 hour week
BethSmarse - ConcordEarlyEnrichmentCenter
01:29:25
Melissa, we are in the same boat. I have kids ready to attend but I cant find enough staff!

Janell Davis

staffing issue... resumes have been a joke!
Darlene Cordaro
01:30:21
Staffing is our biggest issue. We still have a couple of teachers who have not come back.
Hanover Teacher
01:30:28
So hard to hire qualified staff and very expensive
Mimi O'Connor
01:30:29
If you have hired staff over the past month or two, where did you advertise openings?

Staffing is a major issue
MaryAnn French

Enrollment low. Families are waiting for scholl district decisions.
Linda Tremblay
01:30:59
nothing stable around here. Staffing is huge. Staff are leaving to care for their school age children. Staff is still scared to work. Finding qualified staff is hard
Janet Bauer
01:31:04
staffing is an issue
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
01:31:17
Staff out for runny nose, sore throat
Cellissa Hoyt
01:31:22

Jennifer Briggs

Rockingham County We have enough staff but if we expand for school age we will need additional staff. Our enrollment I stable and can xpand if we can take school age. Two open positions.
Melissa’s iPhone
01:32:38
I have lots of open spots but need the qualified staff to take any more. 😢
Judy
01:32:42
knowing what to do regarding enrollment for fall, we are currently serving school age kids and want to have spots for them when schools closes due to covid-19 this fall but also want to fil those slots with preschoolers.
Jennifer Ensign
01:32:45
Opening in September and enrollment is still fluctuating as families decide whether or not they are comfortable sending their children to preschool.
mysch
01:32:46
at capacity due to restrictions and turning parents away daily
Hanover Teacher
01:32:56
We actually could take more kiddos, we get requests daily but we don’t have the staff
Pam

Thank you to all of you that are advocating for us, children, and families!!!!

2nd wave of staff is returning at the end of the month
BethSmarse - ConcordEarlyEnrichmentCenter

We have about 24 open spots but I cant get enough staff to cover. I hired 1 girl who worked a 6 hour shift and never showed back up. Ive interviewed staff and offered positions and they have come back and stated they can't take the position because they are making more being on unemployment!

At capacity due to the restrictions and so we are losing money. We have people on waiting lists in all areas.
Cellissa Hoyt

Most SELA programs sharing their financial situation report enrollment creeping up a slowly. They are operating in the red and concerned about how long they can continue without the max group size increasing

does anyone work in more than1 classroom?
Janell Davis

Has anyone created a questionnaire for parents in regards to remote learning?
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
01:37:05
Same - 70/80 per week. Trying to take end of the night cleaning burden off my teachers who are exhausted
Linda Tremblay
01:37:35
Being able to temporarily hire assistant teacher qualified individuals as subs would help. I would train in house on a temporary basis. The sub rule makes it tough.
Janell Davis
01:37:51
Hanover I have had too... especially with staff out
mysch
01:38:24
Can we touch on sick leave requirements staff members? How are others handling this?
cmartin

Same as children. Staff are out if they have any symptoms.

My teachers don't have benefits such as sick paid leave
Linda Tremblay

Sub rule says they need experience. I wish I could hire assistant and train a few weeks to be able to sub until we can hire qualified.
Jennifer Ensign
01:40:39
Yes.
mysch
01:40:56
Thank you
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
01:41:00
We joined children in the the first hour and last hour of the day into 1-2 rooms. Now I am operating 7 classrooms in the fall. It would be helpful if either the first or last hour of the program long-term assistants could be able to act as a sub so that teachers can work 9 hour days instead of 10 hour days. Numbers are lower because of staggered arrival and departure
Lynn Ouellette
01:41:44
I'd love to talk to someone about an idea I have to increase the child care workforce. It wouldn't be a quick fix but is an idea for the future. Not sure it would even be workable.
Janell Davis
01:42:23
YES!!!
Karen Darling
01:42:34
There are new employer rules regarding sick pay related to Covid.
Jackie Cowell, Early Learning NH

I’m interested in growing the workforce, too, Lynn
Mimi O'Connor

Karen, can you tell us where we can find that?
Janell Davis
01:43:29
We work so hard... They should have to do what we do
Jennifer Briggs

they need to follow the rules just like we do.
Karen Darling
01:43:52
I start teaching an online course at 2pm, look at Fed pages
Kim McKenney
01:43:59
I agree with you Marianne - this is unlicensed childcare, but understand desperate parents make desperate decisions
sue pfeiffer
01:44:13
NO! not for the infant to 5 age group. We have so many hoops to jump through I feel it would undermine what we do.
Janell Davis
01:44:31
just because parents are desperate, doesn't mean we should ignore the fact that this is happening
Linda Tremblay
01:44:31
We are not merging in the morning or evening due to Covid-19 and this is really killing the overtime budget. My staff is tired 😫

I think that they might start as small neighborhood groups but then expand to include moro families and that concerns me because they have not been approved for health and safety, and background checks should always be done.

Creates an equity issue, the haves and the have nots

I think parents having a few children rotate between homes feels different than a gym or program offering a pop up site

Licensed centers have openings. That is unlicensed. Should have to follow our rules!!!

Plus, the concept is to regulate childcare to ensure safety of children.

I have heard about “pop-up” sites in context of schooling children rather than child care for children. in that vein, they are taking teachers away from the workforce in that many teachers are choosing not to return to the classroom.

Another concern would be staff leaving our programs if a parent asks for them to “run” one of these groups. Staff would be motivated by a smaller group of kids.

From Lisa Doyon on phone:Does anyone know how likely DCCLU would grant a waiver if adding a child under the age of 2 will be granted if means you will over the two under two? Example, I have 2 clients that are both pregnant with their second and can’t find any other centers or FCC that cant accept 2 children because the limited number of space available due to COVID

So hard to hear families are recruiting staff away from programs... families are desperate and child care programs can't afford to lose staff to be a nanny

$30 but they don't want to pay that for tuition at a licensed program?
