Sounds great!
Mandi
01:25:30
will we be getting letters in the mail about absences?
Sandy Larson
01:26:41
No, however, the nurse or principal may contact you to ensure students are ok and getting the instruction they need.
Mandi
01:27:17
thank you
Oscar Little
01:28:19
I believe distance learning is the safest option for our students. What happens when a student or faculty member is asymptomatic?
Mandi
01:29:07
how will special education be handled, as far as changing classes
Amanda Munoz
01:29:07
Will students be attending elective classes?
Lisa Kyte
01:29:51
Can't hear questions. Can Mr. Goodman repeat question when answering please. Thank you
Sandy Larson
01:30:20
I will speak louder
Lisa Kyte
01:30:49
Thank you
Cyndi
01:32:26
Comment- not question: I don't consider music, tech, or art PE to be elective. Please keep specials offered if at all possible even if added into the regular teacher classroom environment. Thank you.
Sandy Larson
01:33:31
Thank you for your input we also feel these areas of instruction are important.
Emanuel
01:35:15
Can we download the slides after this?

With large events being cancelled, are students that are new to the school this year going to have the opportunity for a school tour so they can become familiar with the campus prior to the first day
Robert Mashburn
01:38:08
This may be discussed later, but will the school still be doing an orientation the week prior to starting? If so, do we have dates or a plan established? Thank you
Cymbrie Smith
01:38:42
my girls have hearing loss and wear hearing aids. we have already noticed that they have a harder time hearing people wearing mask due to the muffled sound. I get that students may not have to wear mask the whole day but will teacher be wearing mask while teaching?
jennifertruitt-lewis
01:39:16
Ms. Smith, we have taken your girls into consideration and accommodations will be made. :)
Sandy Larson
01:39:39
We will look at providing virtual tours but we will be working on reducing the amount of traffic within the schools prior to school opening so we can keep the school sanitized.
Cymbrie Smith
01:39:41
okay thank you.
Melissa
01:39:42
Will there be a staggered start between different grades?
MS
01:40:24
Would it be possible for teachers to wear a face shield rather than a cloth mask? I imagine it to be a hurdle to teach phonics and reading to young children when they’re unable to see the teachers mouth/facial expression.s
Kim MacLagan
01:41:04
So is staff going to be available to direct the littles to their classes then? If they are not familiar with where to go, I am worried about them panicking on the first day.
jennifertruitt-lewis
01:41:35
Hi Kim, yes, staff will be available to help students navigate where they need to be.
Andrea
01:42:00
Can parents volunteer to help with the daily precautions?
jennifertruitt-lewis
01:42:16
Hi Andrea, we will be addressing visitors. Thanks.
Sandy Larson
01:42:20
Yes, all staff will be on hand to help students move throughout the school. We understand the need especially for our youngest learners.
Kristin Munson
01:47:40
Will the school day in Step 2 still be the same hours? Or will the time be modified?
Amanda Munoz
01:47:50
Will students who choose the online option be able to return to school at a later time?
Sandy Larson
01:48:48
Currently the start date remains August 5th and school hours remain the same. This is subject to change.
Megan Lafferty
01:48:50
If the school goes to the students needing to wear masks, will the students be able to transition to online?
Sandy Larson
01:49:15
Mr. Goodman is discussing that now.
Kristin Munson
01:50:05
For online, if parents are needed to be involved would the instruction come more direct from teachers? And would it then be staggered by grades for families with kids in multiple grades.
omegarayisawesome
01:50:28
does that include gifted student?
MS
01:50:29
Would this also apply to the gifted pull out?
Sandy Larson
01:50:39
Online instruction will be an option. We will be work on a more detailed plan however, our first step is identifying how many students will be utilizing the online option.
Tamara Gonzalez
01:50:58
can we change to online training ; later; once clases hace started if covid cases increase?
Sandy Larson
01:51:58
Gifted instruction will be provided but may look different than in the past. It may be more push-in, similar to special education.
MS
01:52:17
If a student starts the year with online instruction, would they be able to transition back to the classroom if/when conditions improve.
Mandi
01:52:19
if we choose online, can our children go into the school for their special education services only?
Sandy Larson
01:53:32
Ms. Munson, we are still working on the online instruction details which includes the schedule. We will take into consideration students in the same family attending different grade levels and schools.
Kim MacLagan
01:58:13
I am wondering what the drop-off procedures will look like. Are there going to be multiple drop-off locations? What time can students be dropped off since they should not be congregating. What will that all look like?
Kim MacLagan
01:58:28
And pickup procedures for that matter as well.
MS
01:59:31
Has the possibility of pushing the start of school out to September been considered?
Tiffani’s iPhone
02:00:33
Is there a certain point that would cause a full school shut down again?
Tamara Gonzalez
02:00:56
is outside/pe time taken together with other class room or grades?
Kristin Munson
02:02:56
Will the start and end time remain the same?
Sandy Larson
02:03:16
At this time start and end times remain the same
