FRSD students and families,

Late Thursday, ODE put out new guidance on the topic of masks in certain situations (such as being outside).  You can read it (HERE).

The FRSD has taken that guidance, along with feedback from  staff, parents and the school board, and will be altering some guidance for the last month of the school year.  Below is that guidance.

 

AM Arrival Time Prior:  Staff and students needed masks on any time on campus 

New:  NO CHANGES FROM PRIOR REGULATIONS

PM Dismissal Time Prior:  Staff and students needed masks on any time on campus 

New:  NO CHANGES FROM PRIOR REGULATIONS

School Board Meetings Prior:  Meet in person at D.O., streamed on Facebook, open zoom meeting for anyone to attend, comments received VIA email to be read into the record, no in-person public visitors, all board meeting participants wear masks 

New:  Meet in person in EES Library, NOT streamed on Facebook, open zoom meeting for anyone to attend, comments will continue to be received via email to be read into the record, in-person visitors allowed, in person comments allowed at appropriate time on the agenda, all meeting participants and visitors will continue to wear masks, regardless of vaccination status.

Indoor Athletics Prior:  Everyone, fans, athletes, contest management staff all wore masks—all the time 

New:  Athletes that are actively competing, as well as “on-court/mat” officials that have verified vaccination status, can compete/officiate without masks.  Athletes and coaches on the sideline, fans, and other game management personnel must wear masks, regardless of vaccination status.

Outdoor Athletics Prior:  Everyone, fans, athletes, contest management staff all work masks—all the time. 

New:  Students, staff, volunteers, and spectators are not required to wear face coverings at outdoor sports events, regardless of vaccination status. Until additional updates are provided, all previous physical distancing and capacity restrictions still apply.

Athletics at “away” contests FRSD Students, athletes, coaches, and fans will follow the protocols at the site we are visiting.
Inside School Instruction NO CHANGES FROM PRIOR REGULATIONS
Outside School Instruction/recess Prior:  Masks worn by all students and staff, all the time. 

New:  There are some times, when wearing a mask outside is “optional” for staff and students.  Those include:  Recess, PE classes, or other instructional classes held outdoors. Social Distancing to avoid being a “close contact” is key.  The definition of a close contact is being within 6’ of an infected person for 15 minutes.

Staff when no students are present Prior:  Masks worn all the time 

New:  For staff for whom we have “verified vaccination status,” mask wearing is optional when students are not on campus.

Graduation-other end of year ceremonies New:  Decisions on graduation and other end of year ceremonies will be finalized in the days/weeks to come, based on the county risk level and most current guidelines.

-Wearing a mask is a personal choice.  Students and staff are free to make a choice that depends on their circumstances.  If a parent would like their student to ALWAYS wear a mask at school, even in instances where it is allowable to not, please communicate that to your student.  At the K-5 level, if you have that request please share it with the classroom teacher and building principal.  School staff will do their best to remind your student of this.

-This document was made considering input from our teachers, classified staff, administrators, community and our FRSD school board.

-A “Fully vaccinated individual” means someone who has received both doses of a two-does COVID-19 vaccine, or one dose of a single dose vaccine and at least 14 days have passed since the final dose.

-We have 16 school days left!  Please continue to follow protocols, both in and out of school, to ensure our staff and students can remain with our current in-person learning instructional model.  —LAST UPDATED 5-23-21

Chromebook ImageThank you to the many parents who attended our Chromebook check-in night on Monday.  We were able to get almost 60% of them turned it at this time.  We still have over 100 Chromebooks out at these grade levels that we need to get returned ASAP, before we move on to upper grades (reminder this does NOT include OPTIONS or CDL students–they will turn in later).

Here is the next opportunity to meet with our tech folks, and get your Chromebook turned in for your Kinder-2nd grade student.  The turn-in times will be from 7:30-8:30 at the following schools, on the following days.  If you can bring the student device check-in form (click here)  filled out when you arrive at your check-in time, it will make things go quicker.  The forms will also be available on site.

 

Elmira Elementary- Library:

Tomorrow: 5/20 7:30-8:30 AM

Friday: 5/21 7:30-8:30 AM

Tuesday: 5/25 7:30-8:30 AM

Veneta Elementary- Cafeteria:

Wednesday: 5/26 7:30-8:30 AM

Thursday: 5/27 7:30-8:30 AM

Friday: 5/28 7:30-8:30 AM

We ask that parents please accompany the Chromebook (if at all possible), and not simply send it inside their student’s backpack.  Please bring the charger, and if you have a “hot-spot,” please return that as well.

We will have information on turn-in dates for upper grades very soon!  Thank you for your help!

Have you signed your incoming kindergarten student up for KITS? It is an AMAZING program that helps our students and families prepare for school!
KITS Enrollment forms have been mailed out to ALL families who have expressed interest! If you have not received one and would like more information, please call us!
Enrollment is limited, so please return your paperwork ASAP to either Elmira Elementary or Veneta Elementary.

The district is about to begin the process of having students return their Chromebooks (including chargers and hotspots).  We are beginning with ALL Kinder-2nd grade students from EES and VES on May 17th (Not OPTIONS students).  The rest of the schedule is tentative, however our proposed timeline is below.  As each grade level gets fully organized, we will get the information out.

3rd-5th grade:  Beginning week of June 1st

6th -8th grade:  Beginning week of June 1st

12th grade:  June 8th/9th

9th-11th grade:  Beginning week of June 15th

OPTIONS:  Beginning week of June 15th.

 

As the flyer above describes, the turn-in for K-2nd grade students will be from 2:00-7:00 PM on May 17th AT VES, and you can reserve your timeslot by signing up here.  If your chromebook is damaged, please do not wait until check-in.  In addition, please bring your device to the check-in, fully “charged.”

Finally, if you can bring the student device check-in form (click here)  filled out when you arrive at your check-in time, it will make things go quicker.  The forms will also be available on site.
