Thank you for your support as we continue the school year in distance learning. We are excited to be starting in-person academic support at our school the week of February 22.
Here are a few important details about what to expect when in-person support begins:
Students will come to school on their assigned day from 8:30 a.m.-11:00 a.m. We will have approximately 50 students per day on-site. During on-site support students will be cohorted with their Foundations teacher and receive support with their core classes, ELA, Math, Social Studies and Science.
In-person support is optional and does not affect attendance. All students will remain in distance learning as their primary learning model. In-person time will be used to support distance learning, not to teach new material. However, if a student is scheduled for in-person support and does not come, the family will be notified.
Students at PreK-8 and 6-8 schools will receive a postcard in the mail with bus information before February 22. If you do not receive your postcard, check your Campus account or email email@example.com.
Building Access for Families
Students must be dropped off outside school entrances. Students cannot be escorted by family members to their classrooms or anywhere else inside the building. In addition, families will not be allowed to have lunch, observe a class, volunteer, or engage in any other activities in school buildings.
COVID-19 Student and Family Guidelines
Families returning to school should familiarize themselves with these guidelines, which are updated regularly and cover prevention strategies, health screening and monitoring, exclusion guidance, and the SPPS COVID-19 Reporting System.
Families should conduct a health screening every morning before sending their student to school or the bus stop. School staff will also monitor for symptoms throughout the school day. If your child is exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms, do not send them to school. Report the absence to your child’s school and submit a report to the COVID-19 Reporting System the same day for next steps.
K-12 students, staff and visitors are required to wear a face covering unless medically exempt. Everyone should provide their own face coverings whenever possible. However, masks will be available at school and on the bus for anyone who needs them.
Students who become sick during the school day will be isolated (under supervision) until they can be picked up. It is important that sick students are picked up as soon as possible to limit the risk to other students and staff. Please make sure your contact information is up to date in Campus.
Free meals will be provided to all students during in-person support. In addition, meal boxes are available to pick up at several schools throughout Saint Paul. Home delivery is available for students who are medically fragile or cannot leave their home to pick up meals.
