Access to Schools During In-Person Learning  Visitors to schools will be greatly restricted during in-person learning, this includes parents and guardians. However, please know that parental engagement is still possible and strongly encouraged. Schools will use Zoom or other teleconference means in place of person-to-person visits to schools by parents or guardians. In the rare occasion that a parental or guardian visit to the school is required, it will be by appointment only. This district wide protocol of minimizing the number of visitors in a school is another layer of protection against COVID transmission for students and staff.

Información importante sobre el acceso de los padres a los edificios escolares mientras nos preparamos para dar la bienvenida a los estudiantes nuevamente a las escuelas.

Las visitas a las escuelas estarán muy restringidas durante el aprendizaje en persona, esto incluye a los padres y tutores. Sin embargo, tenga en cuenta que la participación de los padres todavía es posible y se recomienda encarecidamente. Las escuelas utilizarán Zoom u otros medios de teleconferencia en lugar de visitas en persona en las escuelas por parte de los padres o tutores. En la rara ocasión en que se requiera la visita de un padre o tutor a la escuela, será solo con cita previa. Este será el protocolo de todo el distrito para minimizar el número de visitantes a las escuelas como otra capa de protección contra la transmisión de COVID para los estudiantes y el personal.
