Nayatt News Update 12.12.2020
Empowering All Students to Excel
Monday, December 14th is a school day for students. The state PD day was removed the calendar when we started school later than expected.
Questions regarding classroom temperatures:
Parents and staff have expressed concerns about room temperatures, especially during the cold weather months.
The state has provided the schools with Medify Air-MA-112, hospital grade air filters.
The high qualifty filters allow us to close windows and doors and run the filter to provide ideal air exchanges in the classroom.
Distribution to all classrooms will be happening in the upcoming weeks.
The district is developing a protocol for use of the hepa filters.
On mild days, it is always best for classrooms to have a window open with a fan and the windows open across from the open doors for a sufficient amount of fresh air exchanges.
Questions regarding updated CDC guidance on quarantine timelines:
The district has recently received updated guidance on quarantines from RIDOH.
The district Re-Entry Committee (including medical professionals) will review on Monday and communicate any changes to the expectations in the following days.
At this time, the CDC does feel that a 14 day quarantine is the safest response-RIDOH Playbook for Pre-K-12 Schools
Barrington Public Schools Devices:
Thanks so much for making “Device Day” such a huge success, the students were so excited to have chromebooks.
We will be sending home daily, the Kindergarten chromebooks are heavy for the little ones, make sure their backpacks can manage it.
Students should charge their chromebooks at home each night. We have limited outlets at school.
It is important for every child to have a district issued device, please let us know if your child needs one.
This allows for consistency between school and home and the ability for staff to troubleshoot.
Nayatt School Lunch Program:
Free meals for students extended until the end of the school year.
