Hello, everyone! I just wanted to send out an update on the most current information that we have concerning Covid-19 Vaccination and Testing. As of right now, if you are not fully vaccinated, you will have to test weekly and provide the district with a negative test result. The first test date that was originally due by September 12th, but has been pushed back by two weeks, per the last mandate issued by the Governor. Thanks to all the hard work of IEA for advocating for us, the union workers! YES, IEA is our union. With that being said, YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO HAVE A TEST SENT IN BY SEPTEMBER 12TH. A follow-up email will be sent out by the District to ALL employees with new information for testing. On another note, the entire PASS Board wants to thank everyone for their hard work! We know that it has been trying in these difficult times, especially for our nurses and contact tracing teams, so THANK YOU to everyone! If anyone has any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to any one of us.
Everyone enjoy the three day weekend, a much needed break for all. 2021-2022 PASS Executive Board

District 202 has long recognized the need to support social-emotional learning to help improve and assure students’ academic success.
In recent years, the district has created and implemented ten new programs, services, resources, and professional development to help students address emotional challenges and succeed in and out of the classroom.
Among other initiatives, District 202 hired 20 new social workers district-wide; created anonymous social-emotional learning hotlines; and hosted community programs about suicide prevention and mental health first aid.
District 202 social workers, special education administrators and counselors formed the PPCN in fall 2016 to support parents with common parenting needs. A committee comprising district administrators, principals, counselors, and community members oversees the PPCN.
Professional development credits (CEUs and CPDUs) will be available for teachers and counselors attending this program.
Please visit www.plainfieldpcn.org for more information about the PPCN including podcasts of past programs.
