Welcome everyone! And special thanks to Ann for sharing her knowledge with us!

Planning for multiple scenarios - sounds like most schools are looking closely at having 2 Cohorts (A/B) A would attend in person Monday-Tuesday and B would attend Thursday, Friday. On "off" days they would do virtual learning and Wednesdays the schools would do deep cleaning and staff professional development.

Hello from the Indiana Afterschool Network!

When I reach out to districts, they say they don't know yet, but will keep us in mind. Because we are on outside agency that runs after school in the Public Schools, I am worried about being an after thought. but struggle with how much to bother school administration when they are already overwhelmed.

at 40 minutes after the hour, those who want to connect with other people who work in programs operated out of school buildings will be split into breakout rooms for small group discussions.

We are meeting with superintendents - if you have a school district with a director of strategic partnerships - they are great resources. Thankful to be invited to the table to speak with our district leaders here in Madison, Wisconsin.

Good morning everyone! Blanca Orellana, Bresee Foundation, Los Angeles

In TX, we are waiting for TEA to make a decision in regards to what in person schooling looks like. We know parents will have to make a decision regarding what method of learning they are choosing 2 weeks before school is supposed to start. Reluctant to open our registration for afterschool until parents make that decision for their children.
Martha Sandoval
49:11
In MA, we are in the same situation as Laura M. Having such a short period of time is so challenging for planning, staffing, enrollment , etc...
Jessica Gunderson
54:07
Are these school sites? If so do school staff have to be there? Janitorial?
Heidi Ham
56:20
Good question, Jessica. Let's see if she answers this when she addresses policies and procedures. If not I will raise the question.
Heidi Ham
01:00:53
Any questions for Ann? If so, please put them in the chat box and we will try to address them.
Mark Cowsert-MASN

@Sarah Moran I hear ya in terms of not wanting to bother school admin BUT what we do in afterschool/OSTP IS essential to the success of working families AND for the success of our kiddos in additional academic support and enrichment. So use your community partner advocates (especially parents!) to help you get a seat at the table of these conversations.
Keith Monfreda-Indiana Afterschool Network
01:01:53
How are school based sites addressing water fountain use?
jeannette alcantara
01:02:04
good morning - are the parents in the car when you are checking in the child?
Patricia Heibel
01:03:23
We also limited the drop off and pick up times
jeannette alcantara
01:03:29
thank you
Heidi Ham
01:05:18
greetings continue to be an important piece in creating a welcoming environment!
Callie Ranes
01:06:19
Will all these notes and comments be sent out afterwards? slides?
Heidi Ham
01:06:21
Thanks Pat - good idea!
Heidi Ham
01:07:06
at 40-50 minutes after the hour, those who want to connect with other people who work in programs operated out of school buildings will be split into breakout rooms for small group discussions.
Megan Marshall, NAA
01:07:15
@Callie, the session is being recorded, which will also have the slides available to view
Marquitta Caesar
01:07:40
orlando has some of the same procedures in place for active programming
Heidi Ham
01:09:07
difference between cleaning and sanitizing is an important distinction!
Mandy Young
01:09:49
Are these trainings available for us to view?
Callie Ranes
01:10:13
@Mandy ditto!
Mandy Young
01:10:44

Thank you, ANN!
Harvey Zuckerman
01:11:21
We're getting lots of new forms from OCFS here in NY - but nothing re trainings. Thank you!
Emily Katongole
01:11:22
THANK YOU!
Heidi Ham
01:11:43
The value of our community in action!
Bethany Pitts
01:12:33
We reached out to our local hostipal and got some donated.

Physical Activity is a huge component of our program. Are there resources anyone is aware of on how to train staff on implementing activities that are more compliant with social distancing guidelines? Or even sample game activities?
Keith Monfreda-Indiana Afterschool Network
01:12:50
Could Ann talk a little about the budget/financial implications of reopening (sanitizer, thermometers, etc)
Monique Bourdage
01:13:54
Lalaine, Asphalt Green's blog has a lot of socially distanced physical activity games. https://www.asphaltgreen.org/blog/rep-it-out-games-for-social-distancing
Heidi Ham
01:13:56
including the why and the idea of taking care of others and themselves.
Patricia Heibel
01:14:17
Also hard to get staff to physical distance -- they just fall into old habits
Patricia Heibel
01:15:32
Our costs are about 30% more than normal
Lalaine V
01:16:04
@Monique THANK YOU for sharing!
Monique Bourdage
01:16:55
There are also instructional videos and downloadable instructions on the Asphalt Green blog!
Laura Martinez
01:17:12
Monique - excellent resource! Thanks!
Heidi Ham
01:18:14
child care resource and referral agencies can be helpful!
Heidi Ham
01:20:09
good use for all the hula hoops that don't work anymore!
Kathy Toves
01:20:33
such great ideas!! thank you for sharing!
Lalaine V
01:21:15
Yes! Hula hoops and the rubber spot markers are really helpful!
Heidi Ham
01:22:06
colored electrical tape could be useful too - it sticks, but doesn't leave adhesive if it is pulled up!
Baltazar Hernandez
01:22:06
Have you had to turn away a child to a parent for having a high temperature and what did that look like?
Harvey Zuckerman
01:23:34
Here in NYS we KNOW things will change by the time the fall comes around so we're planning for the worst yet hoping for the not so bad.
Heidi Ham
01:24:28
Makes sense, Harvey!
Patricia Heibel
01:25:45
How will you get those spaces licensed in time?
Laura Martinez
01:26:26
our district has considered that too- putting all afterschool students from the same grade in the same class
Harvey Zuckerman
01:26:44
That's a GREAT idea. Only issue is this year our MS kids will NOT be moving from room to room so they will need to MOVE.
Heidi Ham
01:27:57
we are just a few minutes away from splitting into smaller groups for those who want to connect with other people who work in programs operated out of school buildings will be split into breakout rooms for small group discussions.
Martha Sandoval
01:28:10
Would you be providing transportation if you are able to access spaces outside of schools?
