Mask Wearing Guide

After reviewing the cloth face covering guidance from the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), Washington State Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the school district developed the following face covering standards:

Cloth Face Covering:

  • Definition: A cloth face covering is fabric that fully covers your nose and mouth.
  • Wear face coverings with two or more layers to stop the spread of COVID-19.
  • Wear the face covering over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin.
  • Face coverings should be worn by people two years and older.
  • Face coverings should not be worn by children younger than two, people who have a documented medical condition preventing them from wearing a face covering or by people who cannot remove the mask without assistance.
  • Both factory made and homemade are acceptable.
  • Face coverings can be made from a variety of materials like cotton, fleece or linen.
  • Neck gaiters are acceptable if the material consists of two or more layers.
  • Bandanas and face shields are not acceptable.

Employees do not need to wear a face covering when working in a room alone.

No Zoom Friday – 10/16/20

October 14, 2020

 

Dear Parents and Families,

We are excited to welcome the pre-Kindergarten through second grade students back to hybrid in person learning next week and look forward to seeing third through fifth graders on Monday, October 26.

Our kids have been working hard in this first month of school and we plan to do a “Zoom Free” Friday at all elementary schools. What this means is teachers will provide students with assignments to work on this Friday, October 16, and no Zoom sessions will occur. Additionally, no “in person” special education classes will be offered on Friday, October 16. Special education students will also be given other assignments to work on from home.

The “Zoom Free” Friday will give our students a day to focus on schoolwork without needing to attend Zoom sessions. Elementary school employees will spend the time on Friday completing final preparations so that our first week of hybrid in-person learning will be a great success!

Additional information:

For all kindergarten through fifth grade students who have chosen 100 percent remote learning, you will start working with your new teacher on Monday, October 19. Your remote learning teacher will contact you this week with more details.

 

Sincerely,

Mike Mendenhall

Olympic Elementary School

Daily Wellness Check

Per Covid-19 guidelines, all students and staff are required to complete a daily Wellness Screening prior to entering any Longview Public Schools building. This can be done through Skyward Family Access or using the Skyward App. There is also a paper copy of the Wellness Screening if you are unable to do it through Skyward. Your student will need to provide documentation that the Wellness Screening was completed before they will be permitted to enter the building. You may show the green check screen when entering the building with a phone screen shot or the paper copy. This needs to be completed daily for every student entering any school building.

Below are instructions on how to do the daily Wellness Screening.

From Skyward Family Access: 

The Wellness Screening is located on the Home page. Answer both questions and then select Save.

Immediately after clicking Save, a response will display. If you responded No to both questions, you will receive a message confirming your student’s entry to the school building.

Below is an example of a Yes response to one or both questions. If you answer Yes to either question, your student should stay home. Please call the school to discuss the illness.

From the Mobile Application:

A widget for the Wellness Screening displays on the mobile home page and it may also be accessed via the menu outlined in red in the picture on the right. Select the Today’s Screening option.

Answer the two questions and select Submit. In this example, No was selected for both questions.

Immediately after clicking Submit, a response will display. If you responded No to both questions, you will receive a message confirming your student’s entry to the school building.

Below is an example of a Yes response to one or both questions.

School Bus Pick Up Times Changed

Dear Parents and Families,

In person hybrid learning is scheduled to start on Monday, October 19 for pre-kindergarten through second grade students. Third through fifth grade students are scheduled to start hybrid school on Monday, October 26. Middle and high school students are set to begin hybrid in-person learning on Monday, November 9. These dates are subject to change based on the community infection rate.

Schools that provide transportation due to the distance from home to school will continue to do so, but morning school bus pick up times have changed.  Please ask your child to use safe protocols when waiting at the bus stop. This means maintaining 6 feet of distance from other students and wearing a face covering. Students need to follow the bus drivers directions at all times and maintain safety practices while riding the bus. For students who do not ride the bus, please arrive about ten minutes before school is scheduled to start.

Please click on this link  https://longviewschools.com/boundaries-and-busing/ to visit the school transportation page. Once you are at the school transportation page, click on the green button titled, “bus routes”. This takes you to a page to enter your child’s grade and home address. Next, click on the “Find school/transportation info” button and bus pick and drop off times and locations will be shown.

If your child rides a SPED bus the district transportation department will call you to confirm bus pickup times.

If you have questions please email infoteam@longviewschools.org.

Thank you,

Longview Public Schools

Reopening Decision Tree

Below is the Washington State Department of Health School Reopening Decision Tree for public and private schools. Movement from stage to stage in the school re-opening plan is based on the number of positive COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people in Cowlitz County, consultation with health officials, and other community health considerations. The Washington State Department of Health School Reopening Decision Tree explains how the district will consider this data when determining the stages of fully reopening our schools.
