Special Education teachers will be assigned as co-teachers in the general education teacher’s Schoology account, and will have access to all of their Special Education students’ academic assignments, grades, and records. This will allow Special Education students to still receive close support from our Special Education teachers throughout distance learning. All Special Education teachers will be responsible for co-planning with the General Education teacher. Compensatory services will be provided upon returning to school. Case managers will also be available during contracted work hours.
Support materials will be provided for all ELL students through NetGeo (myngconnect.com). For those students following push-in support schedules, a joint account will be shared between ELL teachers and General Education teachers. For pull-out support, usernames and passwords will be provided for students by their ELL teacher. ClassDoJo will be utilized in grades K-2, and all communications will take place through this platform.

MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCES
This disruption to routine and the overwhelming level of information about COVID-19 can result in students feeling stressed and anxious. It is important to give the student a sense of control by including them in positive meaning- making about the situation and brainstorming ways they can spend this time in a positive and productive way. Encouraging the student to find ways of helping others during this time can frame this time of uncertainty as a time of growth.

Continuing with our high standards for school maintenance, the Facilities Team Management has created a rotating schedule for each custodial team at each of the facilities in the school district. As per the schedule, one custodian only is assigned to each facility for a two hour period each day during the period of March 16 to May 15. Custodians made sure the building systems were safe and secure during the closure period. Custodians made sure all the unnecessary building systems including heating systems were closed and turned off. Custodians who are assigned to food distribution centers made sure the kitchen and food preparation areas were cleaned and sanitized on a daily basis. Custodial Supervisors and Head of Maintenance are also given the responsibility of food distribution on Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week to families in need who are affected by COVID-19. Starting May 18, 2020, the Custodial Staff at each of the facilities are given the responsibility of locker and cubby clean out as per State recommendations and directions. Following completion of locker and cubby clean out, custodial teams will continue with building sanitization, waxing and deep cleaning until the end of June to make sure the facilities are ready for operation when the State Order is given for reopening. Custodial Supervisor Teams are in contact with each assigned custodian on a daily basis and address any issues including repairs/maintenance inquiries and supply requests.
The Facility Manager is responsible for all the building fire alarm systems or emergency assistance inquiries.
The Facility Manager follows up any fire alarm troubles or issues with the Local Fire Departments immediately and reports to the Facilities Director directly.
The Facility Manager also follows up regularly with the custodial staff who call in sick because of COVID-19 infection and reports to the Facilities Director and the Executive Team on regular basis about the health condition of those that are infected.
ALL Students are eligible and will be provided breakfast and lunch during COVID-19 school closures. Please fill out COVID-19 Parent Questionnaire so that we can prepare an adequate amount of food for all participating families.
