Concurrent Instruction Reminders

Concurrent Instruction means that teachers are teaching both in-person and online students at the same time.  With the phase in of in-person students starting on the identified days in the above schedule, from a parent perspective you will notice (if your child’s teacher is teaching concurrently):

  • In the beginning, for students who are learning online, there will be an increased amount of asynchronous work as teachers work with children in the classroom to teach and practice in-class routines and procedures
  • In the beginning, for students who are learning online, they may not participate in small groups while procedures are being established in the classroom
  • Students who are learning online, whether for the day or all-year, within 4 weeks will be included more in instruction which directly involves the classroom teacher and schedules will be adjusted by the teacher accordingly

What you need to know about the covid-19 vaccine

“Is the COVID-19 vaccine for people like me?”


Commonly Asked Questions

Is the COVID-19 vaccine safe?

Millions of people nationwide and worldwide have already received the vaccine with no serious side effects.

Is the COVID-19 vaccine effective?

The vaccines are over 90% effective in protecting against the COVID-19 virus.

What are the side-effects of the vaccine?

Many people experience mild pain where they get the vaccine shot, headaches, muscle aches, tiredness, and fever. These reactions are a sign that your body is building immunity to the virus, and usually go away in one to two days.

Can you get COVID-19 from the vaccine?

No. There is no live virus in the makeup of the vaccine so you cannot get the virus.

How was this vaccine created so quickly?

While the vaccine is new, the technologies used to develop these vaccines are not new. There has been over a decade of research into coronaviruses and the vaccine technology. The COVID-19 vaccines have gone through the same safety standards and approval process as all  other vaccines.

Does the vaccine interact with your DNA?

No.  The messenger RNA (mRNA) component of the vaccine never enters the nucleus of the cell where our DNA is.  The mRNA leaves the body after about 7 days.

 Will the vaccine work in people like me?

The vaccine trials included over 100,000 volunteers from different races and age groups. People with medical conditions like diabetes and hypertension were also a part of the trials.
