Maskless student

There is a student in the special needs class who cannot wear a mask. He does not understand, and he instantly pulls if off when they have tried. Same with a face shield. My question is, how is this...

I'm surprised they would switch you if you scheduled for a particular teacher. I thought that was what a building sub would do...go room-to-room as needed each day? That is a big reason I declined to...

At least three of the eight elementaries have a case. My MS only has that one teacher exposure, and I haven't heard of one yet at the other MS. The high school has a few, 3-5 cases so far, with ~3000...

All over the board

Everyone's plan seems to be so different. Our school does not do screening temp checks. Our doors and windows stay closed. Our older kids sit 3 to an 8-person round table in the cafeteria. Our...

Here we go

With two weeks of school behind us, positive cases are popping up (as we knew they would). This morning a MS teacher was in the parking lot on the phone with our "Covid Hotline" to see if she could...

Class sizes

I can't offer anything about your other points, but this may ease some minds: At least for the hybrid system we have, class sizes are tiny. Yesterday I got pulled to go to a team that I NEVER...

I don't know much about unemployment, but isn't there some provision for employees who have reduced hours due to Covid? Maybe a partial supplement?

Also, our area has increasing cases but pretty...

Maybe

Maybe, if it's all virtual, but I don't think a sub would be requested if Mrs. B is doing everything.

If there are in-person students, you can't combine classes because of numbers.

Has your school district started up yet? We have an AB schedule at the middle school and 2 on/2 off at the high school. Elementary is as usual. I have already worked 2 days with 5 more scheduled for...

Probably not

But who knows what might be tried if a lot of teachers get sick? (Not just quarantined because I think those will just teach remotely with a sub in the room for supervision.)

That gives me...

Might be allowed, but maybe not wise

My district really wants to keep subs to just one building this year because of Covid. (Like building subs)

I would think carefully about multiple districts this year. If you end up becoming sick,...

"Minimized Exposure"

So far, my schools are still planning to open for face-to-face classes starting in less than two weeks. I usually sub for middle school, and students will be alternating daily from in-school to...

Fall Semester

Our schools are beginning to roll out their fall semester plans. The high school is going to a 2-on/2-off schedule, so they're at school for two days and then do remote learning, where they will have...

We know we don't work over the summer

What is the basis for believing that you are entitled to this money? Almost all of us regularly go without work over the summer, and it is just how the subbing arrangement works. How are you...

This may only apply to my state. It covers confidentiality of student grades, records, and other private information.

Only at certain times

In my district, the plan is that classrooms will be arranged so that all students face the same direction. They can have the masks off there unless they are doing something collaborative. Masks are...

I take my purse, my lunch bag, big bottle of iced tea, and my tablet (fits in my purse) for reading material if I end up with down time. We have an older sub who looks like a pack mule when she...

Greater Good

My point is that there IS NO right answer. Any plan they choose will always leave someone unhappy.

The Thanksgiving option reduces travel. Yes, they will (probably) return for spring semester....

Not half days

I said they may have alternating days, not half days. Half days would be a nightmare to sanitize between shifts, do lunch/free meals, transportation, etc.

Our college here is planning to send...

Typos?

If this is truly a copy/paste as you say, it is riddled with grammar and spelling errors. It would be hard to put any confidence in deciphering exact meaning from writing like this.

I think those who depend on their subbing income and are able-bodied enough need to consider looking for temporary employment. This is going to last for a long time. Realistically, I will not sub...
