Released Statement by Colonial School District
As you have undoubtedly heard many times over the last 10 days, we are facing an unprecedented challenge in helping to contain the effects of the Coronavirus. Since this pandemic began, we have been in almost constant contact with other school districts and State officials trying to make difficult decisions with limited and ever changing information. On Monday evening, the Governor issued updated guidance to schools extending the closure period from March 27th through May 15th.
We understand how frustrating this situation has been and how much anxiety and uncertainty still remain. We have been providing as much information as possible while trying to limit confusion with changing messages. We sincerely appreciate everyone’s understanding and flexibility as we navigate this new reality.
In order to meet the expectations that have been communicated at various levels, we will begin to bring all nutrition, transportation and custodial employees into our schools to support operations starting March 30th. The details of these operations and your schedule will be communicated through your supervisor. Instructional staff should look for an email communication from Pete Leida regarding next steps regarding our remote learning plans. All other employee groups will continue to work remotely from home. During this unprecedented time, we are committed to keeping all permanent staff paid for their regularly scheduled hours.
Daily Tips: Thursday March 26, 2020
Practicing Social Distancing is just smart to reduce and/or prevent further spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We are all finding unique ways to remain in touch even with our healthcare providers. Telemedicine is one of those beneficial ways to do just that! Its remote access to your medical, behavioral or other health care specialist in place of a face-to-face visit. Patients can obtain care advice, reminders, education, intervention, monitoring and more. All that’s needed is secure internet connection and a video platform.
Now may be a good time to reach out to your medical team to find out if Telehealth is an option for you and your family. Ask how you can set up the technology so that when you need to speak to your doctor, access will be just a click away.
Don’t have access to the internet? Comcast may be able to help by providing a free, or low cost plan to those who qualify.
