Good evening! Please post your questions here tonight for us to answer.
Sarah St Louis
what about the 6th graders? what’s the plan for them?
Due to the increased amount of handwashing that will be happening, can I provide my child with hand soap? Will I need to provide a doctor's note?
Are the kindergarten bathrooms in the classroom or are they shared?
If the class sizes are down to 10-12 students, how will the teachers rotate or will there be different teachers teaching at each grade level?
Are students still allowed to remove their masks while they are socially distanced at their desks or will they be required to wear masks AND be socially distant throughout the day (wearing masks all day)?
Do you know who the virtual teachers are yet? And if we choose this route will we be able to see the curriculum before school starts?

For virtual (remote) learning students - what supplies do we need to ensure or make sure we purchase to ensure we are ready to go?
is virtual learning on a 4 or 5 day schedule?
I’m sorry I missed it but could you repeat when kindergarten students can come into the school to see their classroom and meet their teacher? Thank you
Just to follow up from last week, if your child becomes sick (covid or not) will there be an option for virtual learning. I expect there would be a higher rate of absenteeism because of kids not feeling well and don't want my kids to dall behind if we are keeping them home for safety precautions
is the late start for the entire year, or semester bu semester?
Also I just wanted to check drop off times...bus was 850am, 3-5 was 915am and K-2 was 930am?
Will the pre-k students be able to come in to see their classroom?
if the remote learning is recorded, how are you ensuring attendance for those who have to do it after work?
have there been any progress on the people who have no internet and the mifi boxes do not work
so pre k will be arriving a 9:30am?
if for some reason the students coming to the school does not work out can they join the remote learning classes
If we choose virtual learning and the school goes to remote learning at any point will we have to stay with the virtual teachers or will they get our schools regular teachers?
I’m sorry I missed tentative drop off times for 1st grade and 6th grade
when again will we find out who our teachers are for the year?
why wouldn’t the virtual schools link up the same as regular classes? wouldn’t it be proactive to have it synced?
What are the instructional times for the day? Or is this still unknown based on how long parent drop off takes? Likewise--when does parent pickup start)
what about the 6th grade camping trip, is that still in October?
How is art, PE, etc. being applied to the remotes learning? And is it being requirement towards attendance & the report cards? Also is it necessary to have to use the schools devices or can we use out own? Because the device that was signed out didn’t work half the time & had to download the app that my child was using & had to use mine most of the time.
so 4th graders will be parent drop off 915 (best estimation)
What time will school day end for k-5? Do we have to take our child's temperature every day and fill out a form (I heard a parent mention this recently)?
will supplies to be assigned to a specific student and no shared with others
to clarify is we start the learning at school, and the child becomes very uncomfortable the child cannot switch to remote in that same semester
I thought this was supposed to be a FB live event? very confusing
Is the start of the school Year still 9/8/20 ?
What about textbooks or workbooks for those who choose virtual learning?
FB page said it was a FB live.
If your child does test positive for COVID, does your whole family have to be tested? If they are positive, when will they be allowed back to school? Will other kids in the class have to be tested?
can you give the rates for ymca options again?
if you determine that a child needs to go home because you feel they are ill, do we always have to get our child to the doctor to return to school
masks are not required when the child is sitting at desk when socially distanced correct?
Is there a sample virtual learning platform we could look at before deciding? A semester is a long time if it is not working out. Thanks for all your hard work!
so Im assuming the other children in the class will also have to be tested and quarantined ?
if you were doing in-school learning, subsequently test positive and then are quarantined, do you miss 14 days of school or do you get shifted to remote learning?
Will there be one virtual class teacher per grade or will they be in multiple classes?
how many children per class?
will the time change for the elementary school
If you have children in different grade levels (4 and 2) can they be dropped off/picked up together?
will the kindergarten students have more masks breaks since they are younger and more likely to not be comfortable wearing it for long periods of time?
Will students who are virtually learning be tested to make sure they are not falling behind and meeting grade level requirements?
if we choose virtual learning, is it something that is scheduled times or can we start learning when the parent gets out of work?

when will chrome books be given out
Will the YMCA offer a rate that goes in 1/2 hour increments instead a $45 per day rate. Parents might want to just drop off on their way to work. For example, if a parent's work day starts at 8:00 am...could they drop their 5th grader at YMCA at 7:30?
I’m sorry i think i missed it, what is the start/end time for kindergarten?
will the students be able to go to class Monday-friday or will it be split between virtual and in school class
So to confirm the drop off for second grade is 930 if a parent is dropping off. what is the pick up time for students.
To clarify, if a child in the classroom tests positive and the health dept. decides the entire classroom has to quarantine for 14 days they would miss 14 days of learning and not be able to access virtual learning?
will there bus to pick kids up and will siblings sit together?
Thank you for your work, thoughtful plans and outlines, given such a difficult circumstance.
Now that we now the approx. times, if we determine we can drop off/pick up instead of taking the bus, who do we notify?
when should we expect a definite pick up time for buses?
will the kids be able to have library time? thank you
Will there be additional bus aides to make sure the children are wearing their masks (not fooling around)? Will there be any gym or recess? Will kids have art, library, music? What about speech and occupational therapy?
Before you start to run through the bus runs, can we make sure you have the correct addresses they might have changed per daycare or other care because different bus times ?
For the drop off/ pick up times. are these times going to staggered to accommodate the parents
it takes a village ✌🏼
when will elementary students start school in September
What happens when the teacher becomes sick (covid or not) will you have subs come in? Or will you just use the teachers you have in the school already?
Who makes the determination if a student is to be put in the isolation room, or to be sent home? Does the elementary have an RN?
how would speech therapy and the extra help work if parents opt to use virtual
Who is the RN in elementary?
as a parent that works health care, will the kids learn proper hand hygiene? and can we provide them with there own soap and hand sanitizer
Please confirm that it is fine for students to take a different AM and PM bus as long as it is the same morning routine each day and the same afternoon routine on Monday - Friday. Thank you!!!!
who can I contact to update child/parent contact info?
the cut off for registration for remote learning is through the end of the day on 8/17?
has there been any confirmed cases is the school district?
Silly question or maybe not feasible but if the bus and parent drop off area becomes overcrowded in the mornings/afternoons what about an alternate drop off/pick up area? For example Chuck's (if the owner would allow) and smaller busses bring kids over. IDK..just a thought.
will the track be utilized for recess?
how are kids eating lunch?
How will lunch time work? Will kids eat in their classrooms or in the cafeteria?
when will we know about peanut allergies
So...if no fever and just a runny nose...they are ok to go to school?
when will we find out teachers and get supply list?
do you we need to provide refreshments the child or will the school be providing them.
Are car seats provided for those who need them?
Truly appreciate all of the hard work and effort that has gone into developing these plans and providing these informative sessions. Thank you.
can we provide our children there own lunch or will we have to use schoo lunchs
Are you taking temps of children?
You are doing a fantastic job, thank You so much... really feel so much more comfortable with this information tonight.. especially about mask wearing. Cleaning and disinfecting information was already encouraging a great comfort level.
how are Temps being taken?
who will be bringing the children into the building during drop off?
runny nose and post nasal drip are one of the symptoms I’ve seen...are you following the cdc guidelines or NYs?
will there be zoom meetings if plans change from the governors/ will the plan for the most part stay the same if school start day gets pushed?
I’m sorry I missed it- what if you don’t have access to wireless?
So no shared snack or milk like in the old days? You guys are awesome! Thanks!
My child was in scholars. Is that still a requirement while in remote learning? And if so how is that applied?
Will we have to make entries into dismissal manager daily regarding temps?
runny nose and post nasal drip are symptoms...but that is also allergies
will we be getting a lunch menu if our child decides to want to buy lunch?
Do you know if the amount of days a child can miss will be extended with the state?
student lives a portion of the week with another parent, rides the bus with us but is dropped off with the other parent. is this still okay for this year
Just as a reminder we will be getting an email to update dismissal manager ?
sorry missed it about masks, will kids have a break from them? will they have to wear them even in their small pods? when will they have to wear them?
If virtual then when will we get info for who the teachers are so we can contact them? (for general school things)
To clarify, are you saying that if my children have a runny nose due to seasonal allergies and/or congestion that I need to bring them to their doctor OR can we get a note in advance saying that our children have allergies.
I heard there will be bathroom monitors (outside the bathroom)...not too many kids in the bathroom, etc.
will there be open house for 1st grade?
What about meet the teacher night? Virtual?
To the earlier discussion on neck gators and bandanas, are they prohibited or unsure still?
how will you handle staff with children who are ill? will they have to remain home as well?
neck gaitprs do not block enough
Thank you for all of your hard work!
thanks for a great discussion!
thank you for this!!
