We hope everyone is healthy and safe in week three of the mandated school closure. Please know that PASS has been working closely with the district administration on a weekly basis to coordinate essential tasks and the safest way to get work done. Below is the latest info about the school closure.
As you know we have had some members doing “essential” work since schools closed. They are; Grounds to do building checks, Custodians in each high school to clean after Aramark finishes making the free lunches for distribution, and Maintenance on call to fix problems found during that time. Last week Principal Secretaries and Bookkeepers were asked to work from home to do the financial reconciliations that are due. BSN-RN Nurses for Medical Review also started doing “essential” work last week with the start of remote learning.
Starting this coming week, Maintenance and Grounds will be at the buildings doing “essential” work to maintain the buildings and Head Custodians at all the schools will be asked to come in on a reduced schedule to do complete building checks. Also this coming week, Special Education and Early Childhood Secretaries at all the High Schools, Plainfield Academy, and Bonnie McBeth Learning Center will begin doing necessary work from home. In the coming weeks other categories may be asked to begin doing “essential” work too in preparation for the “possible” return to school. At this time we do know that all Custodians will be returning the week of April 27th on reduced schedules to do work that is deemed “essential”.
As of today, no other categories have been asked to begin to do “essential” jobs. When we get more information we will continue to share it with everyone.
Please be assured that all members in the categories returning to the buildings will be following the guidelines from the Governor’s Office and the IDPH.
If any of the above categories have any questions about this please contact JoAnne Clemans or Bill Favero and we can share with you the information for your group, if you have not seen it in your district email yet.
