Executive Order 20-82 indicates that a school district or charter school that operates a hybrid or distance learning model “must provide school-aged care for Eligible Children at no cost during the time those children are not receiving instruction in the school building during regular school hours.”
The school-age care for children of critical workers is intended for extreme circumstances in which no parent or guardian is at home, due to employment as a critical worker. If it is a two-parent household and one is not a critical worker, the school is not required to provide free school-age care to the family. It is our hope that we will have the capacity to provide care for those who need it; please complete the survey sent from your classroom teacher. View the list of Tier 1 critical workers here.
Due to COVID-related circumstances, we will have to temporarily close fifth grade to in person learning immediately. We plan to have 5th graders back in school starting Tuesday September 29. This means some inconveniences for all of us. We will have parent pick of materials, Chromebooks and other homework tomorrow, 9/21, from 3-4:30 PM behind Pioneer Elementary near the preschool playground. Teachers will be contacting families directly on Monday and Tuesday this week, ensuring their child is ready for distance learning. Again, based on the information we have now, it is our plan to have 5th graders back for in-person learning on Tuesday, September 29.
Update - due to an additional case, 5th graders will now be back in school no later than Monday, October 5.
