Below is a whole bunch of information that will help you prepare for returning to our hybrid model. I very much appreciate your patience as we have navigated this new experience. As you can imagine everything has had to change- schedules, food service, transportation, supplies, health protocols, etc. I know this is overwhelming but I wanted you to have as much information as possible so you feel comfortable. Please let me know if you have any questions. Links to the letters are also below. Please click on which cohort your child will be attending and read through the letter:
KINDERGARTEN- FIFTH GRADE LETTERS
We have just received our bus schedules. The link to the general schedule is here: We do not have our PM Preschool or our SLPB route yet. Therefore, parents who have children in either of these programs will be called on Friday by someone from the transportation department to share their bus information. Bus Route Information
MAPS TO ARRIVAL AND DISMISSAL
COMING BACK TO SCHOOL VIDEOS
We also have videos that you can watch with your child that describe the general process. In the next couple of days, I will also send out a video that shows specifically what will happen at Cherry Park.
Video: Return to school process – English
Video: Proceso de regreso a la escuela – Spanish
Video: Tiến trình để trở lại trường học – Vietnamese
Fiidiyow: Nidaamka Iskuulka Loogu – Somali
Видео: возвращение к обучению в школе – Russian
Here are a few more videos that you can watch with your children to make sure they understand how to properly wash hands, keep socially distant and how to wear a mask.
Something we will be asking parents to do every morning is to do a daily illness self-screening. Please see the below for instructions:
Daily Illness Self-Screening Checklist: Various Languages
Each student is issued a Chromebook so that they can engage in synchronous (live), asynchronous (recorded), and applied (independent) learning. If you need to exchange a Chromebook, please come to our office Monday-Friday 7:30 AM- 3:30 PM.
STUDENT AND FAMILY SUPPORT
We provide support to our families so that they know how best to help their children. Our Curriculum and Technology Department provide video tutorials to help parents and students. We also provide technical ‘Helpdesk’ support via email and phone for our staff, families, and students. In addition, each day our teachers have office hours where you can call and check-in if you have questions. Please go to this link if you need help: https://www.ddouglas.k12.or.us/school-during-covid/family-technology-support/
We typically charge a $20.00 supply fee for each of our students. We will not be charging parents during distance learning. When we go back to school in person we may charge families a pro-rated amount.
BREAKFAST AND LUNCH
We will continue to serve free breakfast and free lunch to all of our students. Lunch and breakfast will be served at every school in David Douglas, including Cherry Park. In addition, we will also have a few Meal Stops around our boundaries once a day between 12:00-1:00. Please go to this link to find a stop close to you: https://www.ddouglas.k12.or.us/school-during-covid/food-resources/
We have food boxes available for families to pick up twice a week. Swing on in every Monday from 3:45-5:15 and Wednesdays 2:15-3:15 to get your food box. Food boxes are distributed on a first come/first serve basis. See more details at: https://www.ddouglas.k12.or.us/school-during-covid/food-resources/
