100 degrees or 100.4 (noted re bus drivers)?
what are the pick up and drop off times
can the children bring the mask home for the parents to wash?
Will staff be able to supply and wash their own masks?
How does days missed for covid containment affect the current absentee policy, per the state of CT?
What will recess look like for PreK - 1st grade?
Will students be able to do group work, and have 1:1 reading time with their teachers this year?
If we do have to close the school again, will there be a packet available instead of the chrome books? I have two five year olds and the computer was a bit of a nightmare, also this I believe would keep my 3rd grader on task.
What if a child goes to get on the bus and is not wearing a mask/face covering? Will bus drivers have masks to give to children?
Hilary ’s iPhone
how long will distance learning be available for
how many children per classroom?
If classes are taught outside when possible, and if all students are distanced appropriately inside the classroom, is it safe to assume the kids will potentially have additional mask-free times?
what will the cleaning procedures be for the buses? will they be cleaned in between morning and afternoon?
I know you had said no visitors. Does that mean there will be no Baby Owls this school year?
can we change from distance learning to in person learning at any point? how will this be done?
will Gilbert be following the same protocol??
Can we start in person schooling and if we feel hee need to pull the child out to do distance learning do we have that option
If we switch to distance learning, will Prek-3 and Prek-4 be expected to participate in all day synchronous learning? I don't see my two boys being able to sit through that.
can our children use their own masks?
what are the procedure of outside vendors...say like Heating repair people?
Katie abd Moema
For the grades that have tables instead of desks will they be changed to desks?
Since you are in constant contact with local and state health officials regarding the upcoming school year, is there any indication that the school will, in fact, not reopen at all based on current covid trends?
Batacheller school pickup and drop-off is a nightmare. What would pickup look like with more parents being slated for pickup?
Will the hybrid model/integrated distance learning be an option for parents if the school is still open full time?
Does Batcheller school have modern HVAC? Ventilation of the schools is my greatest concern and I know how old that building is. The presentation said filters were replaced, are they HEPA filters?
will you be requiring children to quarantine for 2 weeks if they go on a vacation during the school year?
I hope so Amy!
When a vaccine is officially ready for the public, will it be a mandate that all students receive it?
How will new parents an students get an orientation and learn the school layout?
If CDC loosens these guide lines will we be able to adjust these regulations?
I'm sure if a child has a normal cold we will be keeping them home longer than we would do in a normal year. Will we have access to distance learning if our child is getting over the common cold so they will miss less learning.
if we go to online learning how will that work for parents that work during the day
I heard you mention the risk and permission form...what does this look like?
Will there be lower student expectations for learning for the school year?
What exactly is the documentation needed for a parent to refuse that their child wears a mask? I am worried that many children will be "exempt."
Forgive me if you covered this, but who is in charge of bus routes? In other words, if I start the school year brining my kid to school how easy will it be to get the bus to stop at my house three weeks into the year if my circumstances change? Do we work with the school district on that type of change, or would we need to work that out the with bus company? Thank you.
are there requirements for staff traveling between buildings multiple times a day/week?
Will the additional CHAMPS fall programs (Show Choir, Lego Robotics) be offered? Are you planning to run the TAG program?
what will the oak St school pick up and drop off look like?
Will the classroom teachers be doing double duty, the in person learning as well as the distance learning?
Will the in-person teachers also be the same people doing the distance learning teaching?
I'm so sorry I missed this but can backpacks and snacks be brought in?
For children that are enrolled in before school at B.A.S.E. and/or CHAMPS afterschool, will transportation be affected to those at the OAK street location?
If someone at the school is diagnosed or formally exposed to covid will parents be notified?
I apologize if this was addressed- how will we be notified of a potential exposure?
What is the COVID-19 level criteria for all children to no longer need to wear masks?
Our daughter was already assigned to a 3rd grade teacher. Will she have the same teacher for distance learning?
For distance learning for Kindergarten, will you stick to 8:25 to 3:25 routine? Is it 5day/week program? That could be too long for parents at home especially for 5 year old kids
