Number 1 question last night was…”April 3rd is still a non-flexible teacher prep day, even with the extended closure? It’s still mandatory to show up for work?” Actually, about fifteen of you had that question…and anyone with childcare issues would have that issue. My issues are much different. So my answer is, “We negotiate on Tuesday. We meet on a regular basis now as the situation remains fluid. My goal is to fix that so you can work remotely. The only reason we made it a non-flexible teacher prep day in the first place was because we were going back on April 6 which has now changed of course.”
Oh and yes, you can do written packets of work for students. For more details on that, read the FAQ. Frankly, I don’t see how kids in Grades k-4 will do the online thing very well. Yes, yes, I know. Kids are more techie than we are…speak for yourself!
Read through the attached FAQ. It’s also available on mantecaeducators.org and will be updated as needed. You might want to favorite that on your devices.
No funnies! You just had some last night. But, I’m preparing some of my own for later. As an extra bonus offer, I have a guest columnist with a special message for you later!
