no site-based nurses

We have "health clerks." These are people with no actual medical training, just CPR, first aid, and the automatic defibrillator.

There is one district nurse.

No one has mentioned how this...

Microsoft district?

I'm sorry that you don't have G suite options. It could have to do with security concerns. We have some Google tools, but we don't have the email, which makes Google Classroom integration into other...

Face shields

A local district has stated that they will provide teachers with face shields so that they can do a better job of teaching. Hmmm, medical professionals wear masks under face shields. I'm pretty sure...

Latest plan

Our district's latest plan is that custodians will clean bathrooms every hour, and teachers will pick up the slack by "helping" with cleaning desks. <!--eyebrow-->:mad:

I saw a really cute wall message- Sprinkle kindness like confetti, and the sticky notes were the confetti scattered on the wall.

Southern CA district- going back in August

CA- illegal

We can't have them. Some people smuggle them in from Mexico, but people seem to be more worried than usual about fire season.

Thank you for this resource. I've been struggling with the idea of no touching when school starts back up. I've done PE as the first subject for years, and I will have to change up a lot of my...

6th is a testing grade/ class size

One thing to consider is that you may be responsible for standardized testing. In my state it's 2-12 that test. We analyze data and get "talked to" if it's too low, but so far, it doesn't figure on...

Also hard to turn brain off-

I agree with ESDTeacher98. I'm having a hard time not doing stuff for school. I also feel scattered when I think about it. We are painting all the cabinets in our loft, so that's helping keep my mind...

We're with you-

but we're painting cabinets. We didn't want to put big $$$ into new cupboards, so we're painting them ourselves. We are going from darker colored wood to a shade of greige (gray with a touch of beige...

Sbkangas5- Looks like you hit a nerve.

So many have raised the same things that upset me about the...

Tools, not techniques

Our district has done how to use tools Online learning, but there isn't much that can be done about pedagogy. There is not any decent research on how to teach/learn effectively Online.

Roasted garlic!

I love their roasted garlic hummus.

Food vendors

Food vendors in our area set up in parking lots around the city and took "drive thru" orders. I thought that was great for them. I'm sure they're really hurting as traveling, seasonal businesses.

Feeling lucky that union's involved

We don't have any clear-cut plans, yet. There are too many unknowns to expect anyone to figure this out.

On the plus side, our union leadership are already involved in discussing the plans. We did...

We're all so tired...

That is a bummer! With all the changes we've been rolling with, to have another big one on top of that must be so hard.
