– All right Good evening, everyone Thank you for joining us for our Teacher Town Hall Meeting It’s great to see all of our elementary teachers here with us tonight It’s 6:30 we’re gonna get started with a special welcome from our superintendent, Dr. Michael McFarland Good evening, sir – Good evening And good evening to teachers, definitely excited to see you all virtually definitely appreciate many of you all making time today to have this conversation, tonight really is for a, is an opportunity for us to share with you our initial thoughts as it relates to the school opening and school start, and also to hear questions from you about things that we need to consider as we really map out protocols and procedures moving forward The thing is we recognize that the pandemic has created some uncertainty for all of us What we know is that if we are able to extend each other grace, or take our time, walk through this process, that in the end, we’ll come out with a great solution, a solution that will make sure that all of you all are safe that we’re safe that our students are safe And then most importantly, that they’re educated in a high quality environment Again, we have two objectives tonight One again is for us to share with you our initial thoughts Now, what I definitely want to start off with and qualify is the thoughts that we share tonight may change And as they change, we’ll have additional townhouse to really add some clarity to those thoughts, but we wanna make sure you know right now what we’re thinking, kinda what we’ve been planning, and then also give you a chance to respond to it either through more questions or just giving us input on your feelings as well Also, I’ll go into detail and kinda give you an overview of the presentation But before I do that, I do want to pause and give our Board President an opportunity to share with you and to greet you, as you all know, our board members, we’re blessed in Crowley with an outstanding board, a board of both educators and parents who see through the same lens, see through the same perspective that each one of us see And so it’s important for us to recognize them I definitely am a proud to be able to serve with Ms. Mia Hall is our Board President And so Ms. Hall, would you like to greet the elementary teachers? – I would, good evening My name is Mia Hall I bring greetings on behalf of the CISD Board of Trustees We are so delighted that you’ve joined us this evening, and you’re willing to share your thoughts and concerns with us as we endeavor on what has to be one of the greatest challenges I think that we, I hope that we will ever face, I would be remiss if I didn’t take the opportunity to say that I share your concerns The board shares your concerns Many of us are educators All of us are parents And I personally have a CHS Senior that reminds me each and every day, what’s at stake for him as a student So this doesn’t mean that the board has all of the answers, but we should all rest assured that Crowley ISD has the most committed, the most innovative, thoughtful, and definitely caring group of education professionals in the business and they are at the helm Leadership I can say in staff at every level have been working day and night to ensure your safety, as well as the safe return for our students I’m a former principal and I can attest to the difficulty of trying to cover every aspect of every detail And it’s sometimes seemed like a very impossible task, but I can’t assess that our CIS Dean team is doing their absolute best to ensure that everything is covered and that we’re ready to welcome you and our students back for the new school year With that said, please know that the Board of Trustees is committed to our CISD team, family, which includes every employee, every educator, every student, and every family and your wellbeing along with the success of our students are definitely the basis of every decision that we make We encourage you to be very candid this evening, we sincerely thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all that you did this spring We know that that was a lot of work That was definitely a curve ball and unchartered territory And we thank you for all that we know that you will do and continue to do for our students and far beyond the next school year So with that, back to you Dr. McFarland, thank you – All right Thank you, Ms. Hall and other board members for your service for sure And so at this point, Mr. Kirchner, I’ll let you go over, it’s kinda the structure for the night, and then we’ll jump into the session – Thanks Dr. McFarland and thank you, Ms. Hall So tonight we’ll just briefly look at the latest developments a lot’s happened in Crowley ISD in Tarrant County in the last 24 to 48 hours We’ll get an overview of that And then we’re gonna look over some of the questions

that we’ve received from many teachers We’ve received hundreds of really great questions about the start of school and what it’s going to look like in advance, it’s really helped us kind of shape the agenda tonight So thank you in advance for taking time to ask those questions The categories we’ll be looking at are returning to work, online learning, health and safety when buildings reopened and how will respond to exposure and absences If you didn’t have a chance to email in your questions, that’s okay Tonight during the Town Hall, you can put your questions, your comments, your ideas, concerns, any thoughts there in the chat box and we will be capturing all of those and using those as we plan in the days and weeks ahead Like Dr. McFarland said, we won’t have the opportunity to answer every question specifically tonight, and some of our answers may change, but what you’re doing tonight, providing your questions is really helping us a lot Thank you, so thank you for your input in this format So let’s talk about the latest developments As you saw last night, our school board voted in an emergency meeting for a delayed start to the 2021 school year here in Crowley ISD Our new first day of instruction will be Tuesday, September 8th, and it will be 100% online And then right now we’re scheduling our buildings to open for the option for in-person learning on Monday, October 5th And we would still consider, I could still continue the online option for families that aren’t ready to come back to school yet And so this also aligns with that Tarrant County Public Health order that was released yesterday And there on your screen you’ll also see the modified school calendar with all of these dates That’s also on our website, also on our website, you’ll find the new work calendars that show the new beginning of the contract day for teachers is Monday, August 24th and other important dates So be sure to find all that information on our website I mentioned those developments in the last 48 hours this week we have heard from the UIL about extracurricular activities We’ve heard from Terra County Public Health, last week We heard from the (mumbles) agency and we’re expecting to hear more guidance from the CDC about the reopening of school And as you all know, we get new guidance all the time, and a lot of times things change And so we’re basing tonight on the latest guidance we received, but we know we’re expecting additional updates in the days and weeks ahead And so we just thank you for your patience and flexibility that we worked through all of these guidelines that are also posted on our Safe Return To School page As we get these new orders and guidelines, we’re posting those, so everyone on the public can keep up with them because they do change a lot So Dr. McFarland, our first section for just some questions we’ve received is kinda talking about what the return to work So I know you and Dr. Kohler are able to talk about that before we look at some of the questions – Alright So what I’ll do is just first, just give you kind of our initial thoughts I believe you understand why we delayed the start of school and those several questions as it relates to returning, dealt with the date and the date when teachers would return and whether or not they will return physically to the campus or virtually Well, what I can tell you is right now, August the 24th is the actual or first day we’re expecting people to return Now, whether it will be returning on campus or returning virtual or in some kind of combo, combination, or a controlled setting, that is something that we will be determining And one of the factors quite frankly, will be what is occurring with the virus And so we will be monitoring that you will know probably about around August the 15th or so We’ll be able to make a determination on whether we would be asking people to report to their campus or whether you’ll be reporting in phases or reporting virtually But again, August 24th is the date kinda the mode or high yield return and where you will return it will be basically be determined Our goal is after tonight, once we collect questions and really get a good understanding from you of where you have still concerns, our goal is to have an additional or another Town Hall Meeting And at that Town Hall Meeting, our goal is to actually give you answers to the questions that has been posed, other questions that’s pending One of the questions here that you’ve mentioned, this is a pending question, one that we will answer, whether it’ll be onsite or virtual or combination, you’ll find that out around August the 15th Again, we definitely know that whether we are virtual or online or face to face, we know that there’s gonna be prep time that’s needed for your classroom One of the questions was, if I am teaching virtually will I have to teach from the building or cannot teach from an alternative location, my home or another place Again, that’s another area where we are evaluating and considering what’s the best option Our initial thoughts about that is that you will be,

you will have to return to the campus, to the building in order to deliver the virtual instruction Now, what we do recognize is that in some cases, we know that that teachers have children that you are taking care of and others and so we are in the process right now of discussing how we would accommodate that, whether it be helping to provide space for your children on the campus or in some other format, making some other kinda accommodation But our initial thoughts are that we will provide virtual instruction from the classroom, because what we do know is there are things that you will have in your classroom that simply may not be available at home And so we know that we wanna do that And so we need to prepare for virtual instruction being delivered from the campus and that modifications and accommodations will be made in some form of fashion for teachers and for your children, if they are, if you require to be able to service them during that time Again, as we have talked about the entry part, remember we are entering a virtual learning on September 8th, we are entering face to face on October 5th And so as we go throughout the next couple of weeks, we’ll be really refining our protocols for what our own campus learning will look like for, our appropriate screening and other actions that we know will be taken But again, we still have some time with that and we plan to address those things But I do wanna let you know about, as it relates to returning to work, we are anticipating returning on August 24th, and we are also anticipating that you will have access to your classroom during that time – Thank you, Dr. McFarland, some other questions regarding the return to work is, if the COVID-19 numbers continue to increase will the district, consider extending the 100% online instruction pass October 5th? And then what data we’ll be using to guide these decisions both now and in the future? – Well, the answer to the first question is absolutely The commissioner gave us the ability to actually extend face to face for four weeks, which we took that opportunity first, but then we can extend for an additional four weeks provided we file a waiver, board take action, and that’s approved And so what will guide that decision quite frankly, will be the numbers We’ll be looking at the infection rate we’ll be looking at or listening to direction from our health department And the, basically our direction will come directly from the health department, as it relates to numbers and closers, as it relates to whether we need to take additional precautions, that information will be coming from the CDC But the answer to the first question is, that is a possibility If we’re having to extend past October 5th, then the November 2nd is the next date that it could be So eight weeks from the September 8th date would be actually November 2nd and so at this point, those are two possible options as it relates to the November 7th What we have set internally is a September 18th kind of date for us to make a decision on where the October 5th works or whether we need to move forward with the November 2nd Again, we’ll be monitoring the numbers closely, and those are numbers of infections Also really numbers of infections, numbers of new cases in this area is really what we’ll be watching very closely – Absolutely Dr. McFarland, one thing you mentioned the Tarrant County Public Health Department, and back in the spring, that was the entity that decided that all Tarrant County Schools needed to remain close after spring break This week, they were the entity, that made that decision for the start of school And so we’re in constant communication with them daily, and they’ve really made some smart decisions putting health and safety first So that’s helped us as a Tarrant County community to all be on the same page All right So our next section of questions has to do with online learning and how it’ll work, Dr. McFarland? – So as it relates to online learning, we have had several teams that have been working really diligently on online learning We know that during the spring, we had a version of online learning several phases of it And we’re definitely feeling like when we start this fall, that we will be able to learn from the challenges that we had during the spring and also from successes that we had during the spring Mr. Keith has been leading that effort And so Mr. Keith will talk to you about our online learning framework And so we’ll definitely welcome input in this section, Mr. Keith? – Thank you, Dr. McFarland Good evening, everyone I do just want to start by saying thank you for the work that you did in the spring I think it is so important to highlight how hard you worked, how much energy you put into moving your instruction online and how committed you work to making sure that students kept learning even when we had to move

to emergency learning So I just want to say thank you for that I know it was no small task on your end of things And I just, I have nothing but respect for Crowley ISD teachers and the work that we do together So thank you for that The questions around online learning really tend to center on a few things And one of the first questions that we’re getting about, what does that look like in the fall, centers around two words that I’m sure that we have all heard, and those words are synchronous and asynchronous And so the question is what will a fall online learning look like? You know in the spring, when we shifted to an emergency closure, we functioned sort of around an asynchronous model where students could complete the work on their own time, but then you, as teachers, you would have office hours, or you would make yourself available by Zoom to assist your students Right? But it wasn’t necessarily direct instruction in a lot of those cases When we shifted to summer school this year, and we had almost 2000 students in K through eight enroll in our summer learning, we shifted to a more synchronous model So students during summer learning had set blocks of time where they would be with the teacher for a block of reading instruction and a block of math instruction And what we found by doing that is that we got very positive results from students being able to be in face-to-face contact with their teachers, getting instruction on a regular basis So as we shift into online learning, starting on September 8th, it will really be a blend There will be high, a large amount of synchronous instruction where you’re delivering instruction to your students via Zoom, where you’re using a Zoom breakout rooms to pull small groups and letting them collaborate But there will also be situations where you will post assignments that students complete on their own time The way that we’re submitting our virtual learning plan to TEA really gives us the flexibility to do that Or we can have students follow a schedule of synchronous instruction, but we still have the flexibility for them to work asynchronously on their own And so that takes us then to the Crowley Virtual Learning Academy So we know everyone starts virtually on September 8th, but assuming we’re back to school face to face on October 5th, we really see our students split into two different tracks You have one group coming back for in-person instruction, and then you have your other group who is receiving virtual instruction full time Those are our Crowley Virtual Learning Academy students And so the way that the Virtual Learning Academy will look is very similar to how virtual learning looks At the beginning of the year, we’ll just extend that into the school year And then as we’re looking at curriculum, we want to ensure that no matter which path students are on, they are receiving a guaranteed and viable curriculum, whether it’s online or whether it’s in person So as we’re looking at curriculum, we’re looking at pacing guides So we’re going to use the work that you have done in our power standards committees this summer to make sure that we’re identifying the most essential content to make sure students receive that synchronously and in face-to-face instruction as much as possible, and then using those curricular resources to address those other standards So that’s just a quick overview of what online learning will look like and how we’re leveraging some of those lessons we’ve learned from the spring and the summer – Alright, Mr. Kirchner I’d like to go back to the return to work for a second and answer a couple of questions that I see in the tech that we may be able to answer And then if there are questions you have relative to online learning, definitely make sure we enter those in the chat as well The question around there was several questions relating to the CDC, our Child Development Center for employee children And as we mentioned, we will definitely be making accommodations for employees who are coming up to our building to work if we’re doing the virtual from the classroom And so we’ll be give you more information about our plans with CDC, but I know that we’re working on that and thinking through what the order says, what the court, what the County Commissioner’s order says in relation to having people up at the building during that time So if that’s available, we’d definitely be working through that – Yes Thank you, sir So now also on online learning, just in questions about how online teachers will be selected and they’re choosing to teach online or in person and dr. Kohler was prepared to answer some of these questions and talk to this – Thank you, Mr. Kirchner Well, good evening to all of you It’s great to see all of you I would say first, it’s important to remember that all our teachers will be online teachers through at least October the 5th,

but we are working with Mr. Keith and the CNI team to develop the process for teachers who are interested in an assignment to the Virtual Learning Academy That will involve some sort of an application and some type of a performance-based task or criteria Obviously, teachers who are assigned to the Virtual Learning Academy need to be comfortable with technology and using it to deliver high quality instruction The question about teachers with health risks, choosing to teach online, of course, any teacher, including those with health risks can apply and be considered for an assignment in the Virtual Learning Academy And again, we’re developing that process It’s also possible a teacher could be assigned to the Virtual Learning Academy based on a serious underlying medical condition that places them at high risk for COVID And then the question about will everyone have a job when this is over? I don’t know when it will be over, but I think it’s important to remember that even when we have students and teachers who can report back to the school building, we will have families that choose to remain in the Virtual Learning Academy So our staff will all have jobs, but the ability to be flexible is going to be critical because the duties that you have may look different over the course of the year, because ultimately we have to ensure that all the roles and responsibilities associated with operating schools and either the face to face or the virtual environment are covered – Thank you, Dr. Kohler, we also have a question about special training to equip online teachers to be effective teachers online – Alright, Ms. Allen, would you address that question from a professional development standpoint? – Absolutely Good evening, everybody Good to see you all virtually tonight, we do have a professional development plan that will begin when everyone returns on August 24th, and we’re gonna focus on instructional tools that will help you deliver that online instruction We’ll be focusing on SEL Tools that you can use in that communication tools We’ll also be covering the new grading guidelines it’ll be on for the online learning and then attendance guidelines as well So we’ll really be looking at the whole picture and then giving teachers the tools and the professional development that it’ll take to make sure that you are successful and our kids are successful out there – Thank you, Ms. Allen, some other questions that were submitted in advance, we’re also getting some great questions over in the group chat that we’re monitoring Will we take student attendance during online learning and how will that work? – Mr. Keith? – [Allen] I’m sorry, go ahead – Go ahead Ms. Allen if you can address that Go ahead – Okay Well, I was gonna say, I know that when we do our professional development, when we return, we are gonna have a whole section on exactly what this looks like and exactly the tools that we’ll use to do that I’m not sure if Mr. Keith wants to talk about specifics with that, but I know that that’s part of what we’ll be covering at our professional development back to school piece – Right? Absolutely So the State’s given us some guidelines on how it will take attendance for online learning And that will definitely be a part of back to school PD – Thank you both I have another question about how will paraprofessionals be used to assist with online learning? – So yeah, that’s definitely a great question As, Dr. Kohler mentioned, we know that we are currently staffed for 16,000 students in a face-to-face format Well, we are definitely based on the statistics and survey results, we’re anticipating six to 7,000 students possibly be selecting a Virtual Academy for the entire year So what that means is that we have, we will have personnel and human capital on the campus that may have to be repurposed It’s important for us to recognize that we all, and I’ve mentioned this to our Central Office team, as well as all other staff, we are designing a new way of doing, of really doing school for lack of a better word And so people may be asked to do a things that are, that they haven’t been asked to do before As paraprofessionals, as teachers at Central Office, we all have to be flexible during this process What we do know is that everyone has a job throughout the end of this year,

but we also know that you could be asked to do something different than what you’ve normally been been asked to do And specifically part of paraprofessionals very likely will be because there may not be, the need for as many face-to-face paraprofessionals on a campus, especially if half of that campus is in a virtual environment So what we’ll do is look at that situation, look at the campus situation on a case by case of situation, and then make the best use of the personnel that we have available So the paraprofessionals may be able to assist with online learning, if not, they may be required to assist with protocol on the campus to help with safety But we do know that they’ll be needed, just how they’ll be needed would be predicated upon the number of students on their campus and a number of students in the online format And also just to talk a little bit more about the online format, and I’ll give Mr Keith opportunity to scan those questions ‘Cause there was some really good questions that I think we have answers to in the chat on online learning But let me just talk about how we will actually go about staffing with online What we know is that we have a window initial window of where we sent a survey out and we asked for parents to let us know whether they will like the online instruction or the face to face We, I think we sent it out right after July 4th And we said, the end date for phase one was around the end of July, July 31st, I believe And so what we know is that, because we change the start date, then we know we’ll have to add a couple of other opportunities for parents to let us know that they like to choose the online format But once we get that number, then we’ll begin to look at the number of students that have selected online learning by grade level And we’ll look at every campus in the district And what we decided is that these students would be enrolled in the Virtual Learning Academy, which would be similar to being enrolled in a different school And so, for example, if I had students at Deer Creek, for example, and let’s say at Deer Creek I had at the second grade level, at the very beginning, we start out with 60 kids or so in the third grade And so we have X number of teachers with 60 kids We have three teachers with 60 kids Well, out of those 60 kids, let’s say 25 of those students chose to go in a strictly online format And so then what we would do is we would take those 25 students and maybe at Deer Creek, excuse me, wait, maybe at Bess Race, we had another 15 students at second grade and may, it may be at Mary Harris we had 30 students at second grade And so we begin to look across the district at our second grade teachers and when we determined that how many teachers will we need in a face-to-face format, and then how many teachers will we need in a virtual format At that point, they would begin to make staffing decisions Or we look at the teachers who have applied for virtual learning, we look at teachers who have had some kind of a preexisting condition that we feel like would benefit from a virtual learning environment And then we make decisions at that point The challenge with this is, ’cause I know the thing is that everybody wants to know as early as possible, the challenge is that based on the commissioner’s rule, the students actually have to up until two weeks before we start to determine, to let us know And so it may be a moving target, but again, we do hope to have some assignments early, but that may change It likely will change And so it is a very complex, it’s a complex situation that we’re dealing with And a moving target is really a lot like a re like trying to figure out a Rubik’s Cube But we’ll work it out What we ask for is just patients with you as it relates to that But staffing will be a challenge and it will be different and will need people to be flexible as it relates to online learning Keith, did you have any questions that you saw that you felt like you could address? – Yeah, absolutely So I think that can group a lot of these into probably four kind of big buckets One of the first questions that was in there was about who designs the virtual learning lessons? We know that in the spring, those came from a group of lead teachers and that team, but this will be different These are teacher-designed lessons These are using district resources You will design the lessons for your students We believe that that’s very important so that you can meet the needs of your individual students to be able to do that based on the training provided by the district Another question is when teachers return face to face, will they be just teaching virtual or will they be teaching virtual plus face to face or just face to face? And the question is, it depends And it depends on a lot of different things It depends on how many students select a face to face versus virtual option It depends on the number of teachers who teach in that particular area And so that’s a question that is a challenge to answer at this time and we’ll definitely be providing more information as we get closer

The third kind of a big bucket here was about the learning platform for younger students So we did use Google Classroom for pre-K through second or for all grade levels in the spring, we’ll be shifting to Seesaw definitely for pre-K through second, if not pre-K through five, we know that’s the user friendlier platform for our younger students So if you want to get a head, start on things, start taking a look at that now, mastering that particular tool And then there was a question about teaching a full class versus small groups at one time virtually So we are working on those schedules Students will follow a set schedule daily And one nice thing about a virtual learning environment is that it may give us the flexibility to rotate groups of five to seven students through, so you can work with them individually while the other students in the class are working asynchronously So that’s something that we’ll look at as we continue to develop those daily schedules – Alright, thanks, Mr. Keith We’ve had some other questions be submitted regarding online learning and substitute teachers Let’s say an online teacher is sick or needs to take a day off, how will subs work for that? We, if someone asks about a sub shortages we had before the pandemic and classes were often combined, when in-person instruction’s happening, how will that work and what will we do with substitutes? – Alright, Dr. Kohler, if you’ll address that question please – Yes, sir Thank you, dr. McFarland So we are working with the Professional Development Department, Ms. Allen and her team to ensure that the folks who are in our sub pool are provided the same trainings that our teachers are receiving in terms of the platforms and protocols for virtual learning so they can step in and provide that instruction if needed And then to echo kind of what Dr. McFarland said earlier, we will be staffed in the buildings with, enough teachers, enough paraprofessionals, enough staff to help cover those duties, especially with the numbers at right now, they’re telling us they intend to stay in an online virtual environment But again, that flexibility and willingness is gonna be critical and necessary because are your duties and responsibilities may have to change during the course of the year, but I feel confident that between the substitute pool, the training, the substitute tab, and then the number of staff on each campus, we’ll be able to address this concern – All right Thanks Dr. Kohler Dr. McFarland, we’ve also had some questions about benchmark testing and store, and of course assessments and how would those be conducted if we’re in an online format? – Well, this is one of those items that we all can acknowledge that the assessments are important, benchmarks, store, all those things are important, but quite frankly, they’re not the most important thing to us right now And so this is one question that we will address, but it will be addressed at the next Town hall We do plan to continue to have benchmarks and beginning of the year, middle of year and end of the year screeners, but the security of it and making sure that it’s accurate information, that’s something that we’ll work through at a later date But again, our focus now is really just trying to make sure that we get the school year started in a safe way And then we get you the information you need, but we will address this item It’s just not one that we’ve put a lot of thought into just because we know that we can address that piece, once we get the structure and the logistics down – Great We’ve had some teachers and parents ask this next question regarding online learning is, how we’ll meet the teacher night, be handled when we’re online? And so I know our school leadership is working with campus principals to design real unique ways for new students to meet their new teachers Right? – Yeah, no doubt And I believe Dr. Berry, I believe Dr. Berry’s on, she can probably speak to what we are doing either Dr. Berry or dr Mohler about, excuse me, Dr. Mia or Dr. Moseley could speak about new teachers and kinda the initial thoughts that principals have had about how we would do new teacher or meet the teacher in a virtual format Dr. Mia? You may be on mute if you’re on, you speaking So she’s not on, basically with new teacher will be handling new teacher, excuse me, I’d say new teach, but meet the teacher will be handled in a virtual format for sure Of course, we wanna be safe as possible We have to think of creative, new, creative, and innovative ways to do the meet the teacher We do know that it’s still necessary I know several principals have talked about how they could do it, but again, it will not be in a face-to-face format We will limit face-to-face interactions as much as possible However, we do know that’s necessary – Great Dr. McFarland I think one thing we’ve talked about in our communication to families, but we haven’t touched on yet tonight

is how important it is that every student is equipped with a device for online learning Last year in the spring, we’re able to provide those February household, but that means siblings we’re sharing, but we’re are investing in additional devices and we’ll be good distributing those in August to all students in Crowley ISD – Yeah, no doubt We’re definitely excited about that One of the reasons why we delayed quite frankly, why we delayed the start of the year is we wanted to make sure that every student had a device, not just every home, but every student in the spring, we made sure every home had a device, as much as we could, in the fall, we wanna be able to guarantee that every student has a device And so the board has taken some strong action and allowed us to purchase additional devices and at least additional devices to make sure that we can do that again from August, from the early part of August, all the way through to the latter part of September, we will be issuing devices to students and our goal is to make sure that by September 8th, all students have a device We excited about that That will definitely help us, we believe – Great All right So our next category of updates and questions Dr. McFarland has to do with health and safety in the buildings When our buildings are open again, what that’s gonna look like on a day-to-day basis And so we have, I know some updates from you and our Health Service Coordinator, nurse, Misty VanCampen Nurse Misty, you with us? – Yes, I am Sorry I was on mute Yeah So when we start back, of course, the health and safety of our students and staff is paramount and so what we’ve been doing since the spring, as we’ve been buying PPE for our staff and for our students alike, we also just received an allotment from TEA as well So that we’ll have enough face mask to make sure that we, of course, we do encourage you to wear your own if you have that so that you are comfortable when you come back to the campus, as you’ll be wearing it for most of the day, but for those students, or for people who may need a new one throughout the day, because that’ll be in part of that training, we wanna make certain that you have those available And so every teacher will have a kit for their classroom, which will include hand sanitization, gloves, mask and they’ll also have wipes available to help sanitize certain common areas, doorknobs, things like that So we will also, when you walk into the building, the building will really speak to you because we’ll have signage everywhere about social distancing, wearing the mask, things of that nature We’ll also have hand sanitization stations is what they call them, at every entry point, as well as in all the common areas So it’ll be, I hope it will be practice that in your transition periods to specials, to lunch, things like that, you would just, everybody hand sanitized before they go and when they come back and that would just be a part of your routine, if you will And so we will have those available everywhere so that if you have a kid that’s messing with their mask or something, you can have them sanitize in the library or what have you And then, I think we have, we’ll also have temperature checks And I know that there was a question posed, Anthony, about would there be a thermometer? Would teachers have thermometers? So we’re still very much looking at what all of that looks like for the day, but we are looking at temperature checks in the morning and that first period class And so, and what that would look like, every teacher, we have enough thermometers that every teacher on the campus would have a thermometer available to them in their classroom And we’d be able to, and as far as all the cleaning and disinfecting and things like that, Mr. Reaves would be the better person to talk to about those things Dr. McFarland? – Yeah So again, as nurse VanCampen has shared, we definitely are still in the process of working through these protocols But again, we all, we do think that we have some things in place now that we believe that if we had to go back face to face, that we would be able to manage that again, that will require a screening as you’ve mentioned, but also a we’ve done some additional things

as it relates to cleaning and sanitization So I’ll ask for, I’ll ask Mr. Reaves to share just kinda what we’re doing with sanitization and how it’s gonna help us to feel more comfortable and confident at where we are as a district when we get ready to return Mr. Reaves? – [Reaves] Thank you, Dr. McFarland So first I’d like to just let you guys know that the ABM staff at each facility will also be doing the same type of screening each moment for themselves, they will do the temperature check They will be wearing the same PPE and just following the same protocol that we do So one of the things that’s, it you’ll see a shift in, is that they will be throughout the day, constantly monitoring and cleaning all touchpoints, whether it be desk, door handles, chairs, tables, a lot switches So that has moved up to the top of the list, along with monitoring the restrooms throughout the day, and cleaning as needed Then in the evenings, along with the disinfectant that they use, which is a hospital grade BioRICS disinfectant We also have a purchased E-Mist machine, which is the electrostatic machine that we will use in the evening to spray all the areas Another thing is, they will be making a regular habit of replacing gloves as they finished task before they start a new one and then outside of that, I’m working with ABM to just (mumbles) staffing to make sure that no other regular activities fall behind and we’ll address staffing as we need – All right – Thank you, Mr. Reaves, while we have you on Mr. Reaves, there’s been a question submitted about how school buses work? I know you work very closely with the team at Durham Can you talk about what social distancing on school buses will look like? – [Reaves] Yes, definitely So the same protocol for the Durham employees will be followed as far as they go through the screening check, as they arrive to work, the employees who wear the same PPE, mask and gloves that we’re wearing, or looking into, if the Department of Transportation will allow us to put a hand sanitizer on these buses, if they will, we’ll be doing that We’ll also supply the bus driver with mask to make sure that, if a student misplaces one (mumbles) or what have you, that they have one available to give to that student We will sit two to a seat and that typically we’ll have a bus running at about 60% capacity We’ll make sure there’s, if we have heavy routes that we just add, additional buses to handle and keep us at that 60% And then we’re also looking at ways to bring ventilation in We’re looking at how much of the windows we can lower, that they have kind of sections that you can lower, if we just lower one section, can we still maintain a cool enough temperature in there and then just get a good airflow? And then one of the main things is that they will be doing a sanitizing cleaning wipe down between each a.m midday and p.m. runs – Right Thank you, sir Nurse Misty, I know we’ve seen some other questions coming in there on the chat regarding health and safety in the buildings, any that stand out to you you’d like to address tonight? – Yes There was a question about face shields And definitely we know that it’s very important, especially in those early grade levels for the students to be able to see your face and so that they can learn just for that learning process So we have ordered enough face shields that you would be able to have those We have purchased those as well as we have gotten a lot of them from TEA so that you would be provided a face shield

And I know we’ll speak a little bit more about that later on, where, when it comes to special education as well And then I just want you to know that we have developed protocols So we have been working through the summer with our summer workouts, strength and conditioning workouts So we’ve actually had instances where we’ve had positive cases We’ve also had an instance where we had a student that showed up and we took her temperature and she had a fever And so we separated that student from the rest of the athletes immediately, and we were able to send her home without any kind of, without exposing other students because they’re wearing their mask and they’re taking the proper precautions And because she had her mask on, therefore there wasn’t really a risk to the other students And there wasn’t enough time for her to infect them So I know that there was a concern about students coming in, and then I was checking them during that first period class But the evidence shows that it has to be a prolonged time period, greater than 10 to 15 minutes with the, in the same, in a close contact And I will say just like, I know that it’s hard to hear, it is ever changing And so even the mask, so close contact right now, the find by CDC is if you have a mask on within six feet, but what we’re hearing from the health department is the evidence is so great in the wearing of the mask that, that may actually change that the definition would be, close contact would be within six feet without a mask So we really look for that to change before we come back face to face And that’s just an example, one of many that we’ve been dealing with that change So I just want to assure you guys that we’ll have protocols in place where if a student arrives with a temperature, it will be handled swiftly and efficiently, so – And so also, Mr. Kirchner, I think just looking at the questions in the chat, I think going through a day in the life, maybe a good idea right now And so what I like to do is just walk you through our initial thoughts as it relates to the day in a life of a student And as we get to points in that day, where you have questions or teachers, please send those questions in on the chat, but we’ll walk you through a day in their life So we have a student, Jamie is my student Jamie is actually a third grade student at Parkway, okay? So Jamie wakes up in the morning and because we have been promoting, washing your hands and washing your face and good hygiene, we’ve been promoting, making sure that you are wearing a mask, wearing your face cover So Jamie gets up washed his really good gets dressed for school, puts on his uniform and because we changed our policy, our dress code policy, which said that mask, the face masks are part of our dress code and so now, regardless of how old students are, whether they’re below 10 or 10 or over everyone, we’re asking everyone to wear a face mask, especially as they’re transitioning from home to school, into the classroom So Jamie puts on his face mask, he goes outside and he goes to the bus stop So Jamie’s at the bus stop with his other friends, with his face mask on, waiting on the bus, the bus arrives And when the bus arrives as a bus drive up, but all the windows down, all the windows on the bus are down because the weather is permissible and so the windows are down to increase circulation on the bus The bus driver has a mask on, we also have a sanitation equipment on the bus, assuming that we’d gotten approval for that But the, Jamie tips to get on the bus, he gets on the bus, the bus driver checks in for his face mask, there was some consideration about having the temperature checked at that point, but we decided we wanted bus drivers focused on driving the bus and also helping us with the mask However, so Jamie has his mask on, but Jamie’s sister don’t have a mask And so bus driver has a stash of mask on the bus, a box of mask there And so he reaches down and gives his sister mask and we get on the bus So they’d get on a bus and they’re walking down and trying to find a place to sit, well, as you know, we said that no bus will be over 60% capacity And so we know that at Parkway, we had several buses that are way over 60% or several buses that were extremely packed and so we have actually assign additional buses to those routes where we have a lot of students that are going to the same location

So we have additional routes and those places, but on Jamie’s bus, we have indicated where to sit on the bus And so we’ve created some kind of slogan like, don’t catch a hex and sit on the X or don’t catch the hex and sit on rex So we have this rich dinosaur with a big X telling Jamie not to sit on the rex or not to sit on the X And so anyway, they don’t sit on the X, but they sit in a space as much as we can on the bus and they move on to the bus Excuse me, so as you can get on the bus and then they move on to school So they arrive at school and every campus has what we call have that identified what we call a Pandemic Response Team On that team is the principal, assistant principal, counselor, a teacher, and a paraprofessional, cafeteria worker, and a custodian On every campus in the district, there’ll be a Pandemic Response Team that will be trained during the month of August And the Pandemic Response Team will be responsible for modifying the protocols that we say in the district to meet that end of that campus, because Parkway is protocol, maybe be slightly different than Mary Harris’s And the Mary Harris’s maybe slightly different than June Davis’s, but every campus will have a Pandemic Response Team and they’re responsible for creating those protocols While they keep protocols is when a student gets off a bus, then they need to enter the building because we can’t have students standing around or congregating in front of the bus, but they must enter the building through what we are calling a Controlled Entry Now when they enter the building, a person is standing there and that person is actually checking for mask We’re not taking temperatures at that point we’re simply making sure students have mask Students will enter the building with the mask on of course maintain the social distancing and they will go mainly to their class, either homeroom class or to there, at the elementary level, they’ll go to their classroom at that point Of course, we already are used to and familiar with breakfast in the classroom So breakfast in the classroom will be waiting on students when they get there, but before they enter the classroom, we have purchased thermometers for every teacher in the district And so what we will be asking, is for every teacher to simply take the students thermometer their thermometer is taken first period There’s no temperature Jamie comes up, goes on here and gets his breakfast and sanitizes hands And then he takes a seat ’cause pulls out his mask at that point and it goes on and eat Now while eating, of course it was current kids are spaced out in the classroom because we know you can’t eat with the mask on Now, so, Jamie comes on here, but Jamie’s friend Mark, shows up and Mark has a mask on, but Mark has a temperature And so once we identify that Mark has a temperature, then Mark will actually be real, be sneaked away We will, we gotta understand what the need, we gotta look at what the name of this room will be, but depending on response team will create it location where Mark can report to because he has a temperature, which is a possible sign, not a guarantee, but a possible So he goes to that room where we have a medical professional in that room that’s able to monitor Mark and if need be call Mark’s parent and Mark’s parent comes to pick him up Again, everyone else’s temperature is fine so we go on with the day So we tell, we go through and we are in our March first period is our first subject is Math In the past, Mark has had Math and then they have actually Math and maybe another subject and then they rotate it Instead of the students lining up in the hall and switching classes, we will actually have teachers at that point And our initial thought right now is where possible having teachers switching classrooms and students remaining in those classrooms as much as possible and not having to switch And so basically the teachers switch then, or we go on with the content that’s being taught at that point in time, but now it’s time for specials And so maybe the specials is actually music And so instead of, our general philosophy is to minimize the transition of students during the day However, there are specials that quite frankly, would be better served in the specials room or in a different location We know that singing, in choir is a challenge We know there may be some of the other instruments may be or something that’s better for us to do, so we’ll find our team will be working on what are the best activities for them to engage in However, we do believe that at that point in time, we would actually line students up, walk students down the hall, social, practice social distancing to the specious room and in this case to the choir room or to the specialist location Now, the special teacher and the Pandemic Response Team have already identified alternative locations So if there’s singing involved, maybe the alternative location,

weather permitting would be outside If there, if it’s something else, maybe it’s in the cafeteria or maybe it’s in the gym, depending on what activity is occurring But that pandemic Response Team will be responsible for any kind of relocation or specials, or course along with a special teacher, they’ll be able to have the conversation to figure out where is the best place, the safest place to have to carry out this activity After specials, maybe the student now is to report, excuse me, before the student goes into the specialist room, there are sanitizing their hands As they’re coming out, they’re sanitizing So when they’re going in and out of specialists, they’re definitely gonna be sanitizing hands for sure Now, as kids leave specialists, and let’s say it’s time to go to lunch Well, what we’ve done the Pandemic Response Team, looked at the cafeteria and they have, will have one-sided cafeteria, one-sided cafeteria tables And so what they have done is identified the space in the cafeteria We have marked the space We put rex with the X where kids will sit on the, sit on the X on those different seats And so students know don’t sit on rex and the other places they can sit, of course they’re eating so they have to take their mask off And they’re all full face in the same direction as they’re eating so that there’s no one across the table from them because of course they have to have their mask off when they’re eating Again, depending on what the response team may decide, that based on the number of students, we need to have some kids eating there in the cafeteria Maybe some students maybe we’ve created space in the library for others to eat Maybe there’s a space outside that we’ve created for kids to eat or space in the gym And I used those spaces ’cause some ’cause we’ve made, depending on the numbers, we may have to have other alternative spaces for lunch, but we do know we need to be strategic about how we do that and depending on the response team on these campus will help us to look through lunches and see what that looks like Also there may be lunch in the classroom However, that will be a last option because we definitely want to use the time that students are at specials or a time that are at launch to actually sanitize that classroom, if possible And so after launch, then we go from lunch and now we go back to our class and we are near the end of the day And so again, as students are leaving, instead of us having a wholesale dismissal, then we have a control dismissal And so we’re the Pandemic Response Team have worked intentionally during the month of August on dismissal and we’ve identified locations where students can be placed and students can sit and wait for their ride, but do it in a way that their social distance, where social distancing is in place And we’re making sure that students have on mask all day And so that is the day in the life of a student A day in the life of a teacher So a teacher, we will encourage everyone we’ll talk about everybody taking personal responsibility to check your temperature before you leave home That’s important, especially if contact tracing is needed, that’s gonna be the critical element And so we’re assuming that everyone will take their temperature at home We have a QR code that also has, that will scan and they’ll have a list of question that you’ll have to answer And also you’ll take your temperature, record your temperature, and that will go into a database When you get to campus, there will be one entrance There’ll be one entrance to the building and we’ll call it our Controlled Entry where teachers and adults that our employees or staff will enter in through that entrance And they will have their temperature checked again at that point, if there’s no temperature, we move on, they go to their classroom with their masks on, possibly gloves, possibly face shield, maybe all the other things, other PPE, if necessary And they prepare for their day Now Jamie gets through half of the day and Jamie realizes that he has forgotten his lunch money and the parent needs to come up The parent has come through the school to give the lunch money, but the child, the parent can not get in the building because we have removed all seats out of the front office, in the safety vestibules there is a person that’s there and that person is there so that when a parent comes, the parent lets us know why they’re there We check their temperature And if they need to go in the building, we check their temperature at that point But if there’s a line, then they take a number, they wait in their car so there’ll be no waiting in the front office In the front office, we’ll have plexiglass in front of the registrar and the secretaries plus plexiglass in the Counselor’s office, plexiglass in the assistant principal and the principal and in the nurse’s office We also have a space where teachers are meeting, if teachers need to meet with parents

and there is no other way to meet with them virtually, then we also have a place, a room set up to where you can meet where there’s a plexiglass or dividers in place as well But again, the parents will not be able to get in the building They will have to take a number like you would at a restaurant or anywhere else And we will call them when we’re ready to see them and be able to direct them, It kinda control their entry and their exit If we have volunteers that are working in the building, they will go through the normal procedure that everyone else goes through as far as the adults at for a screening and answering the questions and all that And so at the elementary level, I kinda ran through that pretty quickly and I’m sure there are things that we may have left out But what I share with you is our initial thoughts about the protocols and the procedure that will be in place during the day to ensure safety So I’ll stop there, Kirchner and if you’ll let me know if there are any questions you feel like we should address in the chat – Sorry That was Dr. McFarland That was very helpful That addressed a lot of the questions in the chat and the questions have been submitted in advance It was great hearing about Jamie, but we’ve also had a lot of questions asked about Johnny who may be in special education – All right – And how does that look different for him? – All right So everything is the same for Johnny until he gets to school And so I’ll let Ms. Batiste kinda talk a little bit about how we meet Johnny’s needs and talk a little bit about what may be different for Johnny, because Johnny may need, may not be able to wear a mask He may not be able to, there may be some other things that Johnny may not be able to do, but we’re still responsible to educate him and we have to keep people safe So Batiste talked to me about what special ed, accommodations, arts and how the interaction in that vein will look – Thank you, Dr. McFarland Good evening, everyone As many of you all know, students who receive special education services may have behaviors that MP with them wearing the mask So one thing that we would definitely wanna do for the parents sake, is we wanna document that they will not keep the mask on, but nor will we forced them to wear the mask That’s when your safety comes in, whether you’re wearing the face shield or mask to kinda create the barrier for transmission, if it does happen to be an issue of concern So, and no way can we basically say you have to wear the mask, of course you’re gonna wear the mask ‘Cause we know that will create a whole unique situation, but we definitely need to document it because the parent may need to consider is the in person an option for this student, if they won’t keep the mask on As far as the deaf education students go and wearing the face shield and like nurse VanCampen mentioned earlier, we have ordered face shields for those teachers, interpreters and those students And then as far as the Art Committee goes, we still want to try, because we found out from the spring that we can get many arts done virtually So we wanna go ahead and continue that format But if there is a unique situation where we have to have in-person arts, like Dr. McFarland just mentioned, like having those plexiglass rooms available, that would be a last resort, but we wanna try to keep this staff as safe as possible And then as far as the students who have like certain related services, when we can do, when we start out virtually, we’re still going to go in for those related services like speech and even though dyslexia is not special ed it’s an area that comes up often, if a child has an IEP and when we go into that, when we go into looking at the curriculum in depth, basically what you’ll see with those schedules is that there’s going to be time for RTI, resource if there’s dyslexia or anything in regards to bilingual, we have to go ahead and make sure that we’re documenting that in the student’s schedules and that the parent is aware of that So I know I saw a few other questions come up in the chat, Anthony, is there anything else that I may have missed? – Those are the big ones right now, Mrs. Batiste And I just want to point out Johnny, our hypothetical student here is actually one of 1700 students in Crowley ISD, receiving services As of last spring, we had everyone here and that’s more than 10% of our students So this is a significant population and we have a great team there at special education

led by Mrs. Batiste Thank you for that, I know y’all are working hard to figure this all out together So thank you, Mrs. Batiste – Okay, thank you, Mr. Kirchner real quick I did see a question come up Asked about how would the student’s records get to teachers? Well, everything is electronic already, so we will continue to build upon that And then Mr. Williams, who is the Director of Special Education, he will, he and the team are working very hard to make this a fluid process and where you all will have support throughout virtual learning is well – Right Thank you so much, Mrs. Batiste – There was a couple of questions I saw Kirchner, one about scrubs And so we do know that, we are considering that we are considering that modification if necessary We know that they may, that the scrubs may be easier to clean and easier to manage and all that And so that is something that was brought up That’s something that we were considering We haven’t actually made a decision on that yet We’d like to know your perspective on it, but the main thing is we want people to be safe, but we also want to maintain the dignity of the position and we own it We wanna do all those things We know that my kids feel welcome and feel good about being there There was a question, we consider it, like the, all the equipment, all the PPE that if you see a (mumbles) in ICU, sometimes it’s pretty scary for kids and, but it may be necessary I’m not saying that we go that far, but I can tell you in that relocation room or whatever, we call that room, we’re gonna call it something different But we wanna make sure that if we know that there’s a possibility there, that a person is protected to the, that person is protected as much as we possibly can But as far as scrubs and other PPE, we do know face mask, shields, both face mask, and a shield that was all allowable, scrubs maybe, we just, we’re still open on that and still open to pros and cons of that, for sure – Thank you for that We’re getting a lot of feedback on that score in particular So thank you all for sharing the input So our final section tonight, and we’re going a little over, so thank you for your time, but this next section has some important questions that we received in it, talking about exposure and absences And it’s what happens if a teacher is exposed to COVID-19 and needs to quarantine, will that be paid or covered leave? And will I have to use my state or local days if I’m forced to quarantine multiple times? – So what I like to do again, because as you heard, Ms VanCampen mentioned earlier, we had a similar situation of a teacher or as a coach earlier in the summer And what we do is as soon as we have exposure, we basically follow the protocol and guidelines given to us by Tarrant County But Ms. Vancampen, would you just kind of share what happened in that situation and then what we’re thinking about as it relates to during the school year? – Yes, sir I will So we had, like Dr. McFarland said we had a coach that had an exposure over the summer workouts And what happened is that as soon as we found out that we had a positive, or that we had that exposure, we were able to notify the other coaches that were in close contact, as well as the students And we have a notification letter So the coach actually let her athletic coordinator know who then in turn notified myself and the Athletic Director, Mr Lincoln And then it kind of started that ball rolling, where we, I reach out to Employee Health and I’m able to, and I know that Dr Kohler is gonna explain, go into a little bit more detail with that, but I reach out to Employee Health with the, with your, and I would reach out to you if you were the teacher, you went to your principal and then they called me and I would reach out to you And then I would call and notify Employee Health that you’ve had a positive test or an exposure and that determines So there’s two different determinations on coming back So if you’ve been exposed, it’s the exposure, is 14, the quarantine is 14 days So if your spouse, or if you’ve been exposed to positive COVID-19 that quarantine is for 14 days If you have COVID, if your COVID positive or you have either, if you’ve been COVID positive, that’s different If you have a lab confirmed test, that is you need, you have to, or if you have symptoms of COVID, but haven’t tested, we assume your COVID positive unless otherwise noted

And that would mean that you have a, you need to be at least three days fever free Although that’s something that may be changing soon because of CDC guidelines and that you have, and that you’re, the individual has improvement in symptoms, your cough, body aches, all of those things, because we know there’s more than just the cough with COVID-19 And it’s been at least 10 days since the onset of your symptoms Those are the three criteria that have to be met in order for you to return to work And so with this particular case, it was COVID positive So those three, once those three criteria are met, you’re cleared You don’t have to have a positive, a negative test to return to work per Tarrant County Public Health Department’s guidelines Is there? – That helps Ms. Misty but you also mentioned Dr. Kohler and the leave portion of this for teachers and how well that will work Dr. Kohler? – Yes Thank you again, Mr. Kirchner So there are provisions out there under the Federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act So some kind of new legislation that came out after the pandemic started, and it does provide full or partial paid leave to an employee if they need to be quarantined, if they themselves are diagnosed in sick with COVID or they’re caring for someone else who has COVID We have information about the leave that is provided under this Act on the Staff page of our district website There are limitations on the amount of leave provided So it, if that were to be exhausted, for some reason, it may be necessary for a staff member to have to utilize their crude state or local days But there are, like I said, some provisions provided for both full or partial paid leave under that Act – All right Thank you, Dr. Kohler, we had another question come in from Martha will Crowley ISD continue to pride the Employee Health Clinic, partnership that we have? – Yes We’re grateful for that partnership And yes, we will continue to provide services through the Employee Health Clinic They remain open year round, so our employees can be utilizing that and in the summer, and then obviously as we go into next school year So yes, that’s a great partnership we have We’re excited about it – Right Thank you, Dr. Kohler Dr. McFarland, we touched on a lot this evening Are there any other questions that you’ve seen pop up that you wanna make sure we touch on before we wrap up this evening? – Well, I think we have tried to share information as we have it, and if there are questions that we’ve missed, then we will, our commitment is to go through the chat and make sure that we have addressed all the questions that are provided to us Again, we will have a second We will have another Town Hall Meeting with you all a closer to the, before the October, August 24th date or closer to the time so that we have more definitive answers But again, we tried to give you information we have, give you our best thinking today Again, it all may change based on information we get, but this is kind of where we are today – Yeah And I just wanna thank everyone for taking the time to submit these questions, even though we don’t have answers to them, or the answers may change, like Dr. McFarland said it really helps us plan having you all at the table, providing the input from your lens as classroom teachers It helps us so much So thank you for taking the time to submit the questions They’re very well thought out And for being, for taking the time to be here this evening, it’s great to see your faces even on a screen and we all look forward to that day when we can see each other in person – Mr. Kirchner, just really thing I just saw, I intended to ask Ms. Maria, and she’s on to talk a little bit about ELL services If Ms. Maria on, if not, then we can address it at the next meeting, but if you’re on Ms. Maria, if you can talk a little bit about that – [Maria] Good evening Yes, we are working closely when it comes to curriculum and instruction with Mr Keith and his department So we will be providing information as we move forward with those And as far as additional services for supporting our English language learners, we are looking into many different ways, even the consideration of some case managers for some of our most at risk students – Gotcha Alright And then also, I know there was a question about pre-K

and early elementary, Blount or Mosley, would you all like to speak to kinda our initial thoughts around what a virtual learning could look like for pre-K, K and early elementary? – Okay Sorry, I had to unmute there Kinda like what Maria just mentioned, we’ve been working very closely with the CNI team to make the plans for pre-K a seamless one So the way we are in alignment with the other elementary grade levels, K through five, so more to come as we continue to work on that – Right And one of the things of course, with mask, for those students, we’re taught, we’re really speaking of mask as soon as the transitioning, once they get to the classroom inside the classroom, we were looking at what the physical classroom would look like, those classrooms would likely be where we would start with the protective shields, just so that those kids, we know those kids will be interacting and probably be difficult to keep their mask on all day So those classrooms were definitely looking closely at to see whether we need to make any kind of modification to them for protection, for sure All right Kirchner, I think that’s all we have for tonight Again, teachers, we definitely appreciate you all Please share, send us an email, send us a question about your perspective, your input We need it because the next time we talk, We’ll have final decisions And so it’s important between now and then if you have any questions or anything you’d like us to address, please do it within the next week or so, because we plan on August the 4th to have a board meeting where we’ll talk about virtual learning in detail, you will hear our best thinking as it relates to that for elementary, August 6th, for secondary, again, any information you’d like for us to consider, please get it to us as soon as possible before then Thank you very much and have a great evening – Thank you all Thank you, Dr. McFarland Thank you
