The survey which was completed by 101 parents indicates the following:
A) 37 % of parents from PK to 8 voted to have the students attend school for two consecutive days each week.
B) 46% of parents from PK to 8 voted to split the class in two groups. Half of the students will attend school each day and the other half will be taught via zoom.
C) 16 parents indicated that they prefer their child to stay home due to the situation.
Plan B will be implemented. Each class will be split in two groups (blended schedule) in order to maintain the “Social Distancing” guidelines as prescribed by the CDC.
This means that every class will be split in two groups—A and B between Monday and Thursday. Only half of the students (PK-8) will come to school each day, and the rest on the following day. All siblings will come to school on the same day. All students will receive instruction through Zoom on Fridays.
Enclosed is the framework that we are going to implement.
Health and Safety:
1. There will be no supervision in the cafeteria or gymnasium morning. Students will go straight to class at 8:00 a.m. Staff Worship and announcements will be on Zoom from 7:59 a.m.- 8:10 a.m.
2. Students and parents’ temperatures will be taken before they enter the school bus or the school building. The entrance and exit of the building will be separated.
3. Busses will be disinfected before and after school. Students will wear masks and will be socially distanced on the bus.
The school policy and procedure will be applied as usual. Each party (teacher, school secretary, or administrator) will implement the policy in order to make sure that students and parents are engaged in learning
Teaching and Learning Requirements:
On Monday mornings teachers are asked to provide the mandatory teaching and learning strategies for the week. Classroom instruction is based on the NAD and State Standards. There will be clear communication between parents and teachers through Jupiter Ed, Mailchimp, text messages, phone calls, and other communication platforms.
