Carly Kenkel
01:32:43
Thank you for all your hard work! I was wondering - when will regular COVID testing begin?
Cristina Marrón CLANG
01:33:21
thank You
Gigi Blatt
01:33:30
Our testing day is Monday. - All negative!
amanda perez
01:33:35
@carly covid testing actually already started! Kids will be tested every Monday on campus
Sarah
01:33:58
If we have suggestions for covid safety at school, who do we speak to? Such as CO2 monitor placement in each classroom to measure air pollution level which can alert teachers to ventilate air by opening windows and doors because I don’t see a universal policy on air ventilation for the whole school currently.
Tamara Tervinskaya
01:35:39
Can you speak to the project?
Casey
01:36:16
For covid testings, parents don't need to be present, correct?
Tamara Tervinskaya
01:36:16
Thank you!
Allison Lee
01:36:54
Yes! Is there a safety committee? Wondering about kids wearing masks with valves.
Gigi Blatt
01:37:16
When you tested with the district, you signed a consent for testing.
amanda perez
01:37:19
@casey if you signed the consent with your initial LAUSD covid test, your child can be tested without you being there
Tamara Tervinskaya
01:37:46
Looks amazing!
Casey
01:37:50
Thank You. :)
Mary Mendoza
01:37:59
Looks amazing!
Anita and Karim Mawji
01:37:59
Where can we see what the play structures look like?
Liz Budd
01:38:12
love the new play structures
Sarah
01:38:55
Echoing Allison, I also have seen some children with masks with valves which is NOT recommended per CDC because these valves allow your respiratory droplets to escape and reach others.
Nida Murrell
01:39:04
Thank you all! Wondering what is 3rd Street cleaning protocols for each classroom and how often is it being done. In addition, what policies are in place should a child tested positive?
Tamara Tervinskaya
01:39:09
We are very impressed after the first day how quickly you have optimized the drop off/pick up! Thank you!
Hanna
01:40:14
Do you mind putting up a map with all the gates labelled?
Gigi Blatt
01:40:23
Yes, thank you for addressing the valve masks. They do not provide protection.
Tammy Abrams
01:40:24
@Gigi so great to hear all tests were negative!! is it possible to regularly publish the weekly number of cases?
Gigi Blatt

amanda perez
01:40:48
@nida It is my understanding that our school’s protocols are determined by what direction comes from LAUSD. I imagine this will be discussed on this meeting but you can also loot a the LAUSD site.
Joy Shaw
01:40:56
Can the older siblings still meet at K class pickup location?
Gigi Blatt
01:41:18
LAUSD has dashboards the link I posted has a pull down
Choi, Mina
01:41:19
Is this pick up protocol effective today or next wk?
Neenu
01:41:34
Does this new pick up procedure apply to ETK
amanda perez
01:42:03

01:50:00
No need to pick up the safety vests.
Gigi Blatt
01:50:42
Do parents need to be vaccinate and/or have a daily pass for traffic safety duty?

Helen Lee
01:52:45
volunteerapp.lausd.net
Helen Lee
01:53:01
We would need your TB clearance with the application.
Helen Lee
01:53:28
Traffic parent volunteers should have their daily pass.
amanda perez
01:54:07
Can parents get covid tested at school on Mondays?
louiseedgley
01:54:15
Will it be communicated to parents which days the classroom will be partaking in an enrichment class.
Pranshu and Manisha Khaneja
01:54:26
Will there be dance and music classes for ETK?
Helen Lee
01:54:40
You would need district employee # for covid testing.
Gigi Blatt
01:54:45
Is the dance teacher the same woman we had over zoom last year?
Gigi Blatt
01:55:05
She was awesome!
Helen Lee

Thank you
Neenu
01:55:33
Potential parent volunteers- TB testing is available at a lot of urgent care centers in the area (at your own dime, but I’m not familiar with the free options with LAUSD) but wanted to share that -
Hanna
01:55:34
For after school library access, can our grade 1 kids be accompanied by their older brother (grade 3)?
Neenu
01:55:41
“Clearance of TB is valid at all LAUSD schools for a period of up to four (4) years as long as the volunteer is an approved volunteer. If the volunteer service ceases for one year, the volunteer will need a new TB clearance”
Helen Lee
01:55:55
Is there an plan in place for online learning for kids who learn that they have to quarantine?
Anna Choi
01:56:12
Thank you for having this meeting online. It makes it more available for working parents and I appreciate it. Thank you.
Helen Lee
01:56:30
Yes. for kids who are being quarantine, they can enroll in independent study between 3 to 15 days.
Helen Lee
01:58:45
thank you!
Susan Kim
02:00:05
If you are vaccinated, do you still need to do a weekly COVID test to volunteer?
Sarah
02:00:09
If we have suggestions for covid safety at school, who do we speak to? Is there a safety committe?
Allison Lee
02:00:14
Would it be possible to have the Kinder kids wash their hands before lunch? Thank you!
Helen Lee
02:00:23
District requires weekly covid testing for all.
amanda perez
02:00:35
Parents - would it be helpful to have a parent led info table at school in the morning next week?
Helen Lee
02:00:38

Yes, hand washing before lunch
Liz Budd
02:02:03
In previous years, we have had additional cleaning people for the classrooms paid for by the class parents. Is that an option this year if the cleaner covid tests before coming on campus?
Helen Lee
02:02:15
You can still turn in your BTB application, however, it might be full.
Pranshu and Manisha Khaneja
02:02:41
Can we please have a shaded area for lunch for kinder students

02:09:19
This was excellent everyone. Thank you. Looking forward to the school year.
Mary Mendoza
02:09:28
We practice at home with a q-tip. It's helped empower them to feel like they can do it themselves. Now both my kinder and etk kiddos can self administer. Hope this helps!
Neenu
02:09:54
Just wanted to clarify, so parents can or can’t accompany their K-2 child to after school library?
Mariah
02:10:10

H! Are the kids automatically tested Monday or do we have to sign something?
Neenu
02:14:59
@Mariah- if you accompanied your child to his test at an lausd testing site prior to school opening you would’ve been made to sign a consent
Mariah
02:15:21
Great! Thanks.
Neenu
02:15:30
Also there’s a way to manage your consent at the same portal you get your Daily Pass
