Robocall Farrand November 22, 2020

 

Good Evening Farrand Families, Mrs. Washington here with your weekend updates. We will begin remote instruction on Monday. I am resending the schedule. You will find it at the bottom of the email that follows the robocall. Farrand foxes, I know you will continue to listen and complete your assignments during the live zoom meetings. 

 

You will have the same number of students in your class as you did prior to the ‘Pause’.

 

Now for District News:

District News:

 

  • This week’s restrictions from the State of Michigan are being supported and implemented by P-CCS. Student and staff health and safety remains the number one priority of the district, but the district’s decision to pause learning at the elementary level until December 7 was also made because of human resources challenges and staff shortages. As of Monday the district had 193 students and 82 staff members in quarantine due to COVID-related reasons (positive, probable, or close contacts). The requirement to quarantine staff and students compromises our ability to provide a consistent, high-quality instructional program for in-person students. We hope this pause will allow for us to follow the state restrictions and see if there is a change in this current surge of COVID-19 in our local area.

 

  • The district’s nursing staff has been working hard to ensure a safe environment  for learning and some clear procedures once cases of COVID-19, or a close contact, are identified. While all important health information is located in the COVID-19 Toolbox on the district’s website (atwww.pccsk12.com) a new video featuring P-CCS nurse Cathy Adsit is very informative and will help parents better understand the steps taken after a case of COVID-19 or close contact is reported.
