CEP schools we have to serve Breakfast and Lunch at no cost during normal circumstances
Leyla Marandi
23:48
Letter will be send out by the end of the week! You can view it here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Gg6owDFHpus_4YgN6egbOP2b-j2pzoZr4vLzRo8eGBY/edit
Anna Severns
24:49
does anyone know what the timeline on this act is?
Leyla Marandi
25:01
For California child nutrition directors in “watch list” counties: are you regularly part of reopening decision-making meetings? What intervals are your districts meeting at leading up to reopening campuses?
Amanda Mascia
25:04
They are routing a Dear Colleague letter due today
Judy Mossa
25:20
Regarding SSO implementation for the remainder of SY 20/21 - how will districts be reimbursed? Typically reimbursement is calculated on ISP %'s ...
Catherine Paredes
25:51
Please clarify/explain how to submit claims for each site of student enrollment if the District is 100% CEP and the meals provided may be given to households with multiple children enrolled various schools.
Amanda Mascia
26:19
From what we’ve heard from our contact on the Hill, the USDA has asked for the bill to be passed through the House, because they don’t believe they have the authority to grant the waivers through 20/21. Though, we are continuing to pressure them through every avenue possible.
Stephanie Bruce
26:43
If you are serving students at locations that are the students home school, when filing claims, if you are doing a bulk entry, just make sure you do not go over the student enrollment when claiming
Leyla Marandi
26:44
https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/In-Person-Elementary-Waiver-Process.aspx
Kat Soltanmorad
26:46
Leyla, yes absolutely. We have been meeting weekly since we closed in addition transitioned our district "Safety" Committee into a Logistics/Operations committee... we have been meeting biweekly since July. In addition, we have been on every Principal/Teacher planning meeting since June.
Emily Cena, Ramona USD
26:47
Yes, we are involved. We were meeting twice a week earlier this summer, but everything got a bit scattered with the governor's order on July 16. Meetings are sporadic in our district now
Stephanie Bruce
27:34
The bill has to pass both house and senate.
Amanda Mascia
28:21
Exactly. It has to pass both. It is expected to sail through the House.
Anna Severns
28:37
^thanks for that info!
Stephanie Bruce
28:43
And will stop dead in the senate. :-(
Amanda Mascia
28:46
Senate is another problem. So there is also a “Dear Colleague” Letter being circulated to pressure Senate.
Paloma Perez Bertrand
28:46
Catherine, according to CDE, schools have to collect meal counts BY SCHOOL regardless of where the students picked up their meal (from another site they don't usually attend). We will try to get more info on this and get back to you.
Amanda Mascia
28:56
USDA is in support, but looking for the political pressure,
Amanda Mascia
29:05
*from what we’ve heard
Anna Severns
31:30
agreed!!
Laura Bullene Jacobo
33:19
Is anyone offering Pop Up Child Care to children of essential workers?
Leyla Marandi
36:09
Kat & Emily thanks for sharing more! For counties on the list, I’m curious how often they are reevaluating and generally what will be expected of you all to turn on a time & have campuses open.
Leyla Marandi
37:45
Ed Burke from Santa Rosa shared this neat touch free adapter for those cambro containers: https://www.amazon.com/Cambro-LCDES110-Black-Dispenser-Spigots/dp/B0037XHE1A
Kat Soltanmorad
37:46
Placer County is on the watch list. Our district covers Nevada, Placer and parts of El Dorado... since we are under Placer COE we are following those guidelines. Daily both public health Directors are in direct contact with our Superintendent, reevaluating
Leyla Marandi
38:17
Wow, thank you ^
Kat Soltanmorad
38:36
We must be off the watchlist for 14 days; for our district that means any and all counties our schools reside in. Eastern Nevada County which is Truckee has seen a significant increase in cases due to tourism
Kat Soltanmorad
39:04
We are working on reopen hybrid plans sometime in October -we shall see
Leyla Marandi
40:00
We’ll share out Christina’s contact info in the follow up email, too!
Leyla Marandi
40:05
(Thank you, Christina!)
Christina Hecht
41:18
Thank you!
Leyla Marandi
41:38
Awesome work SDUSD :D
Christina Hecht
41:40
If you are offering 1 type of milk, are you offering flavored, or plain?
Sally Spero
42:59
I would like to see guidance from CDE regarding OVS that only covers milk. I am concerned this information is incorrect
Anna Severns
43:07
it's not possible to do 'partial' OVS right? ie. let students decline milk/fruit but not the potentially pre-plated meat/MA/Grain?
Emily Cena, Ramona USD
43:15
^ I second Sally's concern.
Miriam Huesca-Holland
43:28
Any updates on the waiver to continue serving the community?
Stephanie Bruce
44:33
USDA is not moving toward allowing area eligibility
Miriam Huesca-Holland
44:46
Thank you!
Stephanie Bruce
44:55
or extending SFSP or SSO
Amanda Mascia
45:15
Thanks for the update, Stephanie.
Amanda Mascia
46:06
Can you share more about what you’ve heard?
Christina Hecht
47:14
By the way, folks, if you have the capacity to package your own juice in small cartons, you could package water that way, too. When she was at Detroit USD, Betti Wiggins set this up to help keep her kids hydrated with water
Debbi Dodson
48:12
Website correction. www.recyclecartons.com (small typo on the slide)
Paloma Perez Bertrand
48:38
Thank you Debbi! www.recyclecartons.com
Paloma Perez Bertrand
49:41
Sally, Anna and Emily, thank you for your comment. We will get more info to clarify your concerns.
Anna Severns
50:23
congrats on Pro!!
Stephanie Bruce
53:11
Love the PRO! Great job
Amy Glodde
53:21
where can we find free COVID school trainings
Emily Cena, Ramona USD
54:00
You can just submit a new meal pattern flexibility waiver, not in CNIPS
Stephanie Bruce
54:03
Yes. I just emailed my CNC and got the approval from her
Sally Spero
54:16
I haven’t seen any guidance on employee break room
Stephanie Bruce
54:35
They don't want us to do new waivers, just update
Debbi Dodson
56:44
other industries (like recycling facilities) just space people apart in break rooms.
Amanda Mascia
57:05
Regarding Breakrooms, all I’ve heard on this issue is that staff should NOT eat together. Especially indoors. Outside, apart. 6’ (at least). And stay in cohorts/work pods
Stephanie Bruce
57:15
We have schedule all breaks to stagger. we do not allow people to be within 6 feet of each other while eating. we also have stickers on floors and tables showing where people can stand or sit.
Amy Glodde
57:35
maybe they can go outside for their break under a tree for shade?
Debbi Dodson
57:45
Similar to how restaurants are spacing guests for patio dining.
Jennifer Marrone
57:49
We recommend their Cars
Leyla Marandi
57:52
^^ good suggestion
Amanda Mascia
57:57
Good idea, Jennifer
Paloma Perez Bertrand
58:10
Thank you Amanda and Stephanie, those are great strategies, thanks for sharing!
Stephanie Bruce
58:30
Maybe have a classroom for cooling especially where it is hot like here 110-120
Erika Allen
58:55
Utilize the MPR. Should be plenty of room.
Sally Spero
59:24
Such good ideas!
Darlene Morrow
01:00:45
Yes please! Great idea!
Mary Mathieu-Ruiz
01:00:53
Yes, please make this available to all!
Alicia Pitrone
01:00:58
Interested. apitrone@euhsd.org
Karen Luna
01:01:03
Great Idea
Cathy Moen
01:01:03
that would be awesome to know how many serving are in whole vegetables and fruit
Vanessa Diaz
01:01:10
yes please
Karen Luna
01:01:39
Hope is not as confusing as the food buying guide
Alicia Pitrone
01:01:43
Not an exact science.
Darlene Morrow
01:01:52
Yes, darlene.morrow@prosserschools.org
Leyla Marandi
01:02:03
We’ll share out broadly :)
Lynley Connor
01:02:19
It’s awesome, Mickinzie is amazing for creating it!
Leyla Marandi
01:03:53
Yes! As Mickinzie mentioned — pls let us know if there are other items you want to see featured in the calculator :)
kristen tekell
01:04:03
Has anyone developed their claiming procedures and willing to share?
Christina Hecht
01:04:36
Any one have a district where staff prefer to serve breakfast and lunch at separate times every day?
Emily Cena, Ramona USD
01:07:07
We have two schools that do not have School Breakfast Program, but the sites where we will be distributing curbside meals do have SBP. Can we claim breakfasts that we serve to students from those two schools?
Alicia Pitrone
01:08:22
For sure you'll be able to, just need to apply for SBP for those 2.
Amanda Pitones
01:09:05
Would that be something similar for kids who ride the bus to a different district, but live in our community?
Cathy Moen
01:09:20
I plan to give my students color coded meal card designate colors by school sites. My bus staff will will tally on a paper each meal by school then claim them accordingly
Cathy Moen
01:09:43
I am a CEP school
Leyla Marandi
01:09:59
^ that’s a good idea, Cathy
Debbi Dodson
01:10:23
