Thank you for the strong support you have shown our staff during a time of historic employee shortages. We are proud to have kept our doors open and our children learning. The ongoing partnership between families and schools is a significant contributor to our success. We cannot continue to serve children without your support and want to make sure you know all the ways we are supporting you.
During this time, teachers will complete lesson planning, student performance reviews, conduct student assistance team meetings, IEP meetings, and create instructional materials. Service staff will complete enhanced cleaning, inventory management, and all other non-student work for their positions. This schedule is to remain in place for six weeks while we put several new recruitment measures in place, hire mid-year college graduates, and anticipate reduced quarantines. We will re-evaluate at that time.
