Safety starts with you
Two items of importance as we bring this challenging school year to a close:
  • Safety protocols when in a district facility
  • Professional development for the inclement weather day 
Safety protocols when in a district facility
Given that many of you will be signing up for slots to be in the schools May 18-22 to close out the school year, here are important protocols to follow when at school:
  • Maintain social distancing
    • Maintain a distance of at least six feet from other people whenever possible. But please recognize that social distancing guidelines don't provide sufficient protection when you spend a lot of time indoors with someone who is unknowingly infected. [See The Risks - Know Them - Avoid Them.]   
  • Wear a mask
  • If you are uncomfortable, politely remove yourself from the situation
    • We are not going to have "protocol police" who enforce social distancing or mask protocols. If someone's behavior makes you uncomfortable, find a way to politely remove yourself from the situation. 
  • Alternatives for high-risk individuals
Professional development for the inclement weather day

  • logged and principal-approved on-campus time on 2/5, and/or
  • approved professional development (PD) completed on 2/5, and/or
  • MobileMind training for certified staff completed at ANY time before 5/23/2020 at the rate of 3 microcourses for 1 in-service credit/hour and/or
  • approved PD completed on other days outside of regular contract hours between 5/25/2019 and 5/22/2020, inclusive.
