CCSD 46 FAMILY UNIVERSITY - December 1, 2020



CCSD 46 is proud to present December's Family University webinar event. Join us for this timely and informative presentation by Erin Walsh from the Spark & Stitch Institute.

December 1, 2020: Building Your Family’s Stress Recovery and Resilience Toolkit
Diciembre 1, 2020: Como desarrollar un botiquín de recuperación del estrés y resistencia para su familia

Stress is a normal response to uncertain and real or perceived danger. Just because it is normal, doesn’t mean that there aren’t practical tools that kids and adults can use to find calm in the storm. This workshop focuses on practical stress recovery and resilience strategies. Knowing that there is no “one size fits all” approach to building resilience, you will explore a variety of ways to manage stress and build a small but mighty stress recovery toolkit for your family.

This is a FREE program open to the community.

Dear CCSD 46 Community,

I hope that your Thanksgiving Break gave your family what you needed this year. Mine was quiet, and gave me opportunities to reflect on how grateful I am to work in this caring community. I am extremely thankful for all of our staff members and parents who have adapted to incredibly difficult circumstances, and I have gratitude for our students who have demonstrated tremendous patience and understanding as they navigate new learning models through this pandemic. Parents/Guardians, thank you for participating in last week’s conferences. We all hope that the experience was positive and informative.

Please be aware of the following instructional changes as we head into December:

“Cameras On, Faces In”
In mid-November, we let families know that following Thanksgiving Break, students will be expected to have their cameras on, using backgrounds or blurring if they so prefer. Teachers will review these expectations with their students. Students or families who have a specific reason to request that an exception be made should contact the teachers directly. “Cameras On” does not mean “Cameras On, and Pointed at the Ceiling”! We are looking forward to seeing our students' faces on a regular basis. We expect that this change will assist in encouraging and measuring student engagement, and building relationships within the classes.

Teacher Absence Procedures
Thus far this school year, teacher absences have been managed internally. This means that other school staff have taken over the classroom, and therefore been required to significantly limit other daily instructional responsibilities and/or decrease the amount of instructional support for another class. As the year wears on, we are modifying our practices to best meet district-wide needs. Please note the following changes moving forward:

  • Some external substitute teachers have now been trained to provide remote instruction. They, along with some internal instructional staff, will be used as substitute teachers for full day teacher absences and whenever Early Childhood, Kindergarten, or First Grade teachers are absent.
  • For grades 2 - 8, there may be times when students will receive asynchronous instruction during a teacher absence. This would only occur when a teacher is absent for half a day or less. In this case, the teacher would upload materials into Google or Seesaw classrooms for students to complete without a teacher. Students would need to continue to log into their classroom site but they may not have a Google Meet for that half of the day. Also, if an assistant was assigned to the class, the assistant would still be available to provide support. Students should be notified prior to the actual absence that this will be occurring so that they are prepared.
Ongoing Communication
There are three weeks between now and Winter Break. Keeping spirits and school engagement high is more important now than ever! Along with the effort that is necessary for finding positive momentum, we know that our families and staff are all wondering whether we will be able to start our hybrid learning program sometime in January, as was discussed back towards the end of October. We will continue to watch metrics, and will keep the communication going.

Sincerely,

Dr. Lynn Glickman
Superintendent

Mensaje del superintendente

30 de noviembre de 2020

Estimada comunidad CCSD 46,

Espero que el feriado de Thanksgiving les haya brindado a ustedes y a sus familias lo que necesitaban. El mío estuvo tranquilo y me dio la oportunidad de reflexionar sobre lo agradecida que me siento de trabajar en esta comunidad tan solidaria. Estoy muy agradecida de los miembros de nuestro personal y padres de familia que han sido capaces de adaptarse a estas circunstancias tan difíciles y me siento agradecida de nuestro estudiantes que han demostrado mucha paciencia y comprensión al navegar los nuevos modelos de aprendizaje en esta pandemia. Gracias a los padres/tutores por participar en las conferencias de la semana pasada. Esperamos que la experiencia haya sido positiva e informativa.

Por favor, tengan en cuenta los siguientes cambios instructivos que van a ocurrir en diciembre:

“Cámaras prendidas, que muestren las caras”
A mediados de noviembre, les informamos a las familias que después del feriado de Thanksgiving se espera que los estudiantes prendan sus cámaras, usando fondos borrosos o cualquier otro fondo si así lo prefieren. Los maestros repasarán estas expectativas con sus estudiantes. Aquellos estudiantes o familias que tengan una razón específica para solicitar una excepción deberán comunicarse con los maestros directamente. “Tener las cámaras prendidas” no significa “Tener las cámaras prendidas mostrando el techo”! Queremos ver las caras de nuestros estudiantes regularmente. Esperamos que este cambio nos ayude a fomentar y evaluar la participación de los estudiantes y nos ayude a desarrollar relaciones dentro de las clases.

Procedimientos sobre ausencias de maestros
Hasta ahora, las ausencias de los maestros se han manejado internamente. Esto quiere decir que otros miembros del personal tenían que encargarse de las clases y por lo tanto, tenían que abandonar otras responsabilidades instructivas y/o tenían que disminuir la cantidad de apoyo académico en otras clases. A medida que el año transcurre, hay más ausencias, y esto resulta en un cambio en los procedimientos. Esto son los cambios que se realizarán a partir de ahora:
  • Algunos maestros sustitutos externos han recibido entrenamiento para ofrecer instrucción remota. Ellos, junto con algunos miembros del personal instructivo, serán utilizados como maestros sustitutos cuando un maestro se encuentre ausente por un día entero y cuando cualquier maestro del programa de infancia temprana, Kindergarten o primer grado estén ausentes.
  • Para los grados 2 - 8, habrá instantes en los que los estudiantes reciban instrucción asincrónica durante una ausencia del maestro. Esto solo podría ocurrir cuando un maestro esté ausente medio día o menos. En este caso, el maestro publicará los trabajos instructivos en las cuentas de Google o Seesaw para que los estudiantes los completen sin el maestro. Los estudiantes deberán ingresar en sus sitios de classroom pero ese día no tendrán una sesión de Google Meet la mitad del día. Además, si la clase tiene asignada un asistente, este asistente estará disponible para ofrecer ayuda. Los estudiantes recibirán una notificación antes del día de la ausencia para que estén preparados.
Comunicación continua
Hay tres semanas de clases entre hoy y las vacaciones de invierno. Es importante, ahora más que nunca, que los estudiantes mantengan sus espíritus y su participación activos. Aparte del esfuerzo necesario para encontrar ese impulso positivo, sabemos que tanto nuestras familias como nuestro personal se están preguntando si podremos empezar nuestro programa de aprendizaje híbrido en enero, como fue discutido al final de octubre. Seguiremos observando los parámetros y mantendremos la comunicación continua.

Atentamente,

Dra. Lynn Glickman
Superintendente
CCSD 46
