3/27 Update

3/27/2020 Update

     We are still working in cooperation with the District to determine what the timeline will be for us to return to work. As of this time NO ONE will be working next week with the exception of the Grounds members who are doing building checks. We are waiting on the Governor’s expected guidance on school closures before a plan is released. The one thing we can share is that you will ALL continue to be paid and your benefits will continue, and service time will accrue during the school closure. Please share this with anyone that you know of that doesn’t get the latest news from our social media outlets or that do not check their school email.

As usual, if you have any questions, please email Joanne Clemans or Bill Favero and we will answer your questions as soon as possible.

Stay safe and Healthy!

Custodial Update

Dear Members,
      The information below is for district custodians only. We do not have any other information for other members yet other than you will all continue to get paid while the schools are closed.

PASS Members,

Please advised that the buildings will be open on Thursday, March 26 and/or Friday, March 27th for certified staff to pick up teaching items. Steve Belcher will be contacting head custodians regarding having someone in the building from 8:30 to 2:30 to sanitize touch points, (i.e. door handles (classroom and entrance door that certified staff use)

During this time no custodian should be asked to do any other tasks other than sanitizing touch points.

If you have any questions, please contact JoAnne Clemans or Bill Favero and we will answer you as soon as possible.

Stay Safe!

This is the latest update from the State and the District:

        Schools in the district WILL be closed thru April 7th. We have been assured that we will ALL continue to be PAID and our benefits will continue. At this time we do not have any other information to share. We expect to be in contact with the District to determine if any of our members will be asked to report to work to get schools ready for students to return.

       Now that you have read this, we ask that you go back and read it again slowly before you send us any questions.

       We will send out another release when we get more information.

Latest News from IEA

Dear Members,
          While we do not have any specific District updates to share IEA has asked us to share this link to their Website that gives information regarding the Covid 19 infection and news related to what the various government agencies are working thru in their decisions involving ongoing education of students, support staff guidelines and any new health guidelines. With all that being said below is the link. Please bookmark this link if you want to keep up with the latest information as we’re assuming this will be updated daily at least.
