WUSD and WSTA Reach Tentative Agreement for 2020-21

The negotiating teams for the Washington Unified School District (WUSD) and the West Sacramento Teachers Association (WSTA) have reached a tentative agreement on the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the reopening of the 2020-21 school year, as of last evening, August 5, 2020.

Both teams have been working incredibly hard over the last several weeks to discuss the modifications of the reopening of school plans that best serves the needs of all students while ensuring the utmost degree of health and safety for all certificated staff. Please join us as we extend our gratitude to the WSTA bargaining team for their continued support and collaboration throughout this entire process. 

The Tentative Agreement highlights a variety of areas such as Virtual Learning Model, Substitute Coverage, Health and Safety Protocols, Worksite Exposure Protocols, Trainings, and miscellaneous personnel-related topics. To finalize the process, the Tentative Agreement will go before the WUSD Board of Education on August 13, 2020, for official ratification.

About the Guidebook

About - Washington Unified School District (WUSD) will open the 2020-2021 school year in a Virtual Learning Model on August 19, 2020. As information and guidelines change related to COVID-19, our Return to School Guidebook will likely be modified over the coming months.
 
Though the ideal goal for everyone is to have students return full-time in the classroom, a safe return to school is not as simple as one size does not fit all options. Additionally, county and regional COVID-19 infection rates make a major impact in our ability to reopen schools. As of August 4, 2020, Yolo County continues to be on the state’s watch list due to the number of positive cases of COVID-19.
 
The reality of the situation is that in-person learning may be a phase-in model when appropriate. Until that time, we remain in our Virtual Learning Model. 
 
We hope you find the contents of this guidebook helpful and remember to visit the WUSD Announcements Feed on our website for regular updates: www.wusd.k12.ca.us.
 
Guiding Principles - Preparations have been underway since March to prepare for a successful virtual learning start to the 2020-21 school year. We are happy to share that many things have been accomplished but there will always be things that are a work in progress as health guidelines continue to transform. 
 
District staff have been working hard throughout the summer to ensure students, families, and employees have the resources they need to be safe, healthy, and successful. Leading these efforts has been a hyper-focus on serving the needs of all students while ensuring the utmost degree of health and safety for students, staff, and families. WUSD is committed to maintaining and strengthening an inclusive, supportive, and caring school culture that is aligned with the latest health and safety measures.
 
WUSD has already implemented a variety of district-wide protocols to adhere to strict school-specific guidelines from the California Department of Education (CDE), California Department of Public Health (CDPH), Yolo County Public Department of Public Health, and Yolo County Office of Education (YCOE).
 

Learning Model Options

August 19, 2020, all WUSD schools begin the 2020-21 school year with a full Virtual Learning Model.

Virtual Learning Model: Daily scheduled interaction and teaching from classroom teacher through technology while student learns at home; *PLEASE NOTE* This will not be "distance learning" that your student participated in during the 2019-2020 school year.
 
Blended Learning Model: Modified Traditional Learning Model with 2 or 3 days per week classroom attendance; 2 or 3 days per week of independent/online extension work; *PLEASE NOTE* We will be better able to adhere to social distancing guidelines and masks/face coverings may be optional in class due to social distancing.
 
Traditional Learning Model: Daily classroom attendance; *PLEASE NOTE* We will be unable to adhere to social distancing guidelines and there will be mandatory masks/face coverings for all students and staff while on campus.
 
Independent Learning Model: Weekly independent work materials with a weekly in person or online check in with certificated teacher; *PLEASE NOTE* This is through scheduled weekly interactions, not daily interactions.
 

The Basics of Virtual Learning

The Basics - The decision for full Virtual Learning is not final for the entire school year. It is only the beginning to start school and slowly phase back into a traditional learning environment. However, this phase-in approach is subject to the ever-changing conditions of COVID-19. 
 
Much was learned when schools were closed last March and our preparations have been entirely focused on ensuring that Virtual Learning be an improved experience from that which students encountered last Spring.
 
In adherence to the California Department of Education (CDE) guidelines for state-wide instruction under the current COVID-19 conditions, WUSD requires instructional minutes to be met. We expect daily instruction between the classroom teacher and students. Lessons will be standards-aligned and we will provide grades as in our traditional school year. Additionally, we will ensure every student has access to the internet and technology to engage in daily instruction with their teacher. All support staff are here to assist throughout this process and will provide additional support services for our students whether virtual or in-person for specialized services of need.
  • Highly qualified WUSD teacher (Preschool - grade 12).
  • Standards-aligned daily instruction.
  • Google Classroom, Google Meets, and other District supported platforms to support communication.
  • Whole group and small group instruction or personalized instruction with teacher.
  • Pre-recorded and live learning.
  • Goal setting and progress monitoring meetings.
  • Parent meetings and technology support.
  • Ongoing feedback, progress reporting, assessments, and regular grading.
  • Physical Education, enrichment, electives, and VAPA embedded in the program.
  • Consistent daily schedules.

Transportation Safety

Buses will be cleaned and disinfected each time a different student group uses the bus, using the California Department of Education (CDE) Stronger Together Guidance when planning for how to maintain physical distancing on school buses, which includes:
  • Students will be seated one student to a bench, alternating rows on each side to create a zigzag pattern on the bus.
  • Mark or block seats that must be left vacant.
  • Ensure 6-foot distancing at bus stops and while loading and unloading.
  • Prevent students from walking past each other by taking the following measures:
    • Seat students from the rear of the bus forward.
    • Afternoon runs based on the order in which students will be dropped off. Students who get off first should board last and sit in the front.
  • Disinfecting and cleaning after each route.
  • Hand sanitizer on all buses.
  • Face coverings are required for students and staff at bus stops and on buses.

Access to Technology

As August 19 quickly approaches, our school site teams are working in unison with the WUSD Technology Department to ensure students have a computer and internet access to support a full virtual learning start to the 2020-21 school year.
 
Our Instructional Technology team has a plan in place to provide Chromebooks and Internet Access to students who lack these resources. Look out for messages from your school principal (phone calls, email, website and social media posts) with your school-specific distribution instructions. In order to comply with public health guidelines, schools are organizing drive-thru style check-out systems.
 
Each school is organizing a different date to distribute Chromebooks from August 5, 2020 through August 14, 2020. You will receive directions from your principal with your assigned date and time window to pick up your device.
 
Internet Access - WUSD and school site teams have conducted assessments to better support district-wide needs for internet access. If you are still in need of internet access, please contact your teacher and site administrator and we will assist you.

Social Emotional Support

As COVID-19 continues to dominate headlines both locally and abroad, it can impact your emotional well-being as well as physical health. The heightened focus on the current pandemic and the multitude of challenges it creates can create a lot of stress, fear, and anxiety among a variety of other social and emotional responses.
 
It is important for us all to remember to prioritize our own well-being during this difficult time. Everyone reacts differently, but signs of distress can include changes in eating, sleeping, energy level, and mood. Feelings of irritability, sadness, helplessness, or even difficulty focusing are also common. If you or your loved ones are experiencing any of these, please do not hesitate to seek support.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) offer these suggestions to support emotional health:
  • Avoid excessive exposure to media coverage of COVID-19.
  • Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol and drugs.
  • Tend to your emotional health. Know that others are experiencing emotional reactions as well. Seek counseling as needed.
  • Make time to unwind and remind yourself that strong feelings will fade. Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories. It can be upsetting to hear about the crisis and see images repeatedly.
  • Try to do some other activities you enjoy to return to your normal routine.
  • Connect with others. Share your concerns and how you are feeling with a friend or family member. Maintain healthy relationships.
  • Maintain a sense of hope and positive thinking.
Yolo County Support Line - If you are struggling with your mental health during this time you can call Yolo’s mental health crisis line at 1-888-965-6647. It is available toll free 24/7.
 
Statewide Support Line - California also has a 24/7 statewide mental health phone line to help those who need help but aren't in crisis called the “Warm Line”. You can call the Peer-Run Warm Line at 1-855-845-7415.

Athletics & Extracurriculars

CIF Statement Regarding 2020-21 Sports Calendar - "July 20, 2020, The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) has determined, in collaboration with our 10 Sections, that education-based athletics for the 2020-2021 school year will begin with a modified season of sport schedule (see below for 2020-21 sports calendar). Our calendar reflects the season for each CIF sport and the last date for Section Championships and Regional/State Championships in those sports where a Regional/State Championship is currently offered. Following this announcement, each CIF Section Office will release their own calendar to reflect regular season starting and ending dates and Section playoffs. It is anticipated that most Section start dates will commence in December 2020 or January 2021."
  • WUSD remains consistent with the July 20, 2020 announcement of the California Interscholastic Federation. This document provides guidance for all youth sports programs—including school-based, club, and recreational programs—to support a safe environment for players, coaches and trainers, families, spectators, event/program/facility managers, workers, and volunteers.
  • WUSD is still waiting for the State to release specific youth sports guidance and for extra curricular activities such as non-CIF sports, club, and performing arts.
     
  • CDPH Schools & School-Based Programs Guidance: https://files.covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-schools.pdf
     
  • CIF Website: www.cifstate.org
Youth Sports Protocols (as of 8/3/20) - Outdoor and indoor sporting events, assemblies, dances, rallies, field trips, and other activities that require close contact or that would promote congregating are not permitted at this time. For example, tournaments, events, or competitions, regardless of whether teams are from the same school or from different schools, counties, or states are not permitted at this time.
 
Youth sports and physical education are permitted only when the following can be maintained: (1) physical distancing of at least six feet; and (2) a stable cohort, such as a class, that limits the risks of transmission (see CDC Guidance on Schools and Cohorting). Activities should take place outside to the maximum extent practicable.
 
For sports that cannot be conducted with sufficient distancing or cohorting, only physical conditioning and training is permitted and ONLY where physical distancing can be maintained. Conditioning and training should focus on individual skill building (e.g., running drills and body weight resistance training) and should take place outside, where practicable. Indoor physical conditioning and training is allowed only in counties where gyms and fitness centers are allowed to operate indoors.
 
Avoid equipment sharing, and if unavoidable, clean and disinfect shared equipment between use by different people to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spread.
 
Consistent with guidance for gyms and fitness facilities, cloth face coverings must be worn during indoor physical conditioning and training or physical education classes (except when showering). Activities that require heavy exertion should be conducted outside in a physically distanced manner without face coverings. Activities conducted inside should be those that do not require heavy exertion and can be done with a face covering. Players should take a break from exercise if any difficulty in breathing is noted and should change their mask or face covering if it becomes wet and sticks to the player’s face and obstructs breathing. Masks that restrict airflow under heavy exertion (such as N-95 masks) are not advised for exercise.
 
Youth sports programs and schools should provide information to parents or guardians regarding this and related guidance, along with the safety measures that will be in place in these settings with which parents or guardians must comply.
 
Activities where there is increased likelihood for transmission from contaminated exhaled droplets such as band and choir practice and performances are not permitted.

Health & Safety Protocols

There are a lot of great things that district staff have been working hard on throughout the summer to ensure students, families, and employees have the resources they need to be safe, healthy, and successful.
 
WUSD has already implemented a variety of district-wide protocols to adhere to strict school-specific guidelines from the California Department of Education (CDE), California Department of Public Health (CDPH), Yolo County Public Department of Public Health, and Yolo County Office of Education (YCOE).
 
Cleaning and Disinfecting - WUSD will take essential actions to create a physical environment that promotes student and staff safety through established protocols and procedures. These will include daily disinfection of areas used by students and staff with a focus on high-touch surfaces such as door handles and restrooms throughout the day.
 
Physical Distancing - We will encourage physical distancing throughout the day as possible. Schedules will be developed to reduce numbers of students and adults in common areas during breaks, lunches, and lower large gatherings. Classrooms will utilize space by spreading desks and tables around the room and using vacant classrooms and outdoor spaces, as available. Rooms will be marked for physical distancing, similar to grocery stores.

Face Coverings - At this time, WUSD is starting the school year with a virtual learning model. Keep in mind, local health orders indicate all staff must wear face coverings, masks, or face shields in the workplace. WUSD will provide masks to staff who do not already have one. We are requiring staff to wear face coverings while in the workplace for the increased safety and protection of themselves and others, and we are strongly encouraging students to do the same when the physical distance is not practicable. Here is additional guidance from the CDPH for the use of face coverings.

Hygiene - Hygiene practices will be reviewed regularly with staff and students. We will teach and reinforce washing hands, avoiding contact with one's eyes, nose, and mouth, and covering coughs and sneezes among students and staff. We have added hand sanitizer stations to high traffic areas on all campuses. Hand sanitizer will be placed at all offices, breakrooms, and copy machines. WUSD will continue to follow the California Department of Public Health guidelines and continue collaborating with the Yolo County Public Health for current guidance on health measures.

Symptom Checks - All employees and students will be encouraged to self-check each day for temperature and/or symptoms. Symptom checks for all workers will be done at the beginning of their shift and any vendors, contractors, or others entering the establishment. We will ensure the temperature/symptom screener avoids close contact with workers to the extent possible. If a student or staff member has a temperature of 100 degrees or more, they will not be allowed onto the campus. If someone exhibits symptoms during the day, we will establish separate areas for them to wait to be picked up.
 
Personal Protective Equipment - To ensure our District is prepared for opening school in the Virtual Learning Model, WUSD Maintenance and Operations teams have been hard at work gathering appropriate quantities Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) across the District. The District’s inventory includes:
  • CDC approved Hand Sanitizers (QT Plus, alcohol, Purell, Cintas, South Fork, Germ brands)
  • Masks (cloth & disposable)
  • Gloves (sizes S-XL)
  • Disinfectant (Ecolab, bleach germicidal)
  • Over 370 gallons of Soap
  • Over 1,900 Face Shields
  • Safety Glasses
  • Sneeze Guards at the front office desk for school secretaries and nurses.
Prevention Tips - There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
  • Wear a face covering when out in public.
  • Avoid gathering with people other than members of your own household.
  • Practice social distancing and stay at least six feet away from others.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • If you are in a private setting and do not have on your cloth face covering, remember to always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.

Food Services

The WUSD Food Services Department is committed to providing our families with opportunities to pick up nutritious meals of lunch and breakfast through a mobile walk up or drive-thru meal service option for enrolled WUSD students. As outlined by updated regulations, we will be mailing home a household verification letter to ensure smooth delivery for students, which also allows our food service professionals to account for the number of meals distributed.
 
Meals served at Elkhorn Village, Westfield Village, Westmore Oaks, Riverbank, and Yolo High School will be available for free. However, until WUSD receives a waiver from the California Department of Education (CDE), meals served to students at Stonegate, Bridgeway Island, Southport, and River City High School will be processed based on the family's 2020-2021 National School Lunch Program (NSLP) Application status. WUSD has a grace period of October 1, 2020 to ensure families have the ability to receive updated NSLP status. 
 
Reminders:
  • Children DO NOT need to be present in order to receive a meal.
  • WUSD will ask for NSLP verification letter at the time of meal pick up.
  • Meals provided are based on the number of students enrolled in our schools.
  • Meal service is pick-up ONLY.
  • NO meals are to be consumed on-site.
  • DO NOT congregate at the school site.
  • Keep 6 feet apart from other people during and after meal pick-up.
  • MUST wear a masks at all times at both the drive-through pick-up line and the walk-up service.

When Someone Becomes Sick

Action Steps - Any students or staff exhibiting symptoms should immediately be required to wear a face covering and be required to wait in an isolation area until they can be transported home or to a healthcare facility, as soon as practicable. WUSD will arrange for safe transport home or to a healthcare facility, as appropriate, when an individual is exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms: 
  • REMEMBER: If you have symptoms of a respiratory virus or COVID-19, then you should STAY HOME and contact your primary care provider.
WUSD will notify health officials, staff, and all families immediately of any positive case of COVID-19 while maintaining confidentiality as required by state and federal laws, and will report a positive case of COVID-19 in a student or staff member to the Yolo County Public Health Provider Line immediately at 530-666-8614.
  • Close off areas used by any sick person and do not use before cleaning and disinfection. Disinfectant products will be kept away from students.
  • Advise sick staff members and students not to return until they have met CDC criteria to discontinue home isolation, including 24 hours without fever and improvement of symptoms, and 10 days since symptom onset.
  • All students, including students with disabilities, have access to instruction when out of class, as required by federal and state law.
  • Students, teachers and staff from higher transmission areas could have opportunities for telework, virtual learning, independent study and other options as feasible to reduce travel to schools in lower transmission areas and vice versa.
  • School site administration will be trained to coordinate documentation and tracking of possible exposure, to notify local health officials, staff, and families promptly.
If Students or Staff Test Positive - In consultation with the local public health department, the appropriate school official may decide whether school closure is warranted, including the length of time necessary, based on the risk level within the specific community as determined by the local public health officer.
  • Given standard guidance for isolation at home for at least 14 days after close contact, the classroom or office where the patient was based will typically need to close temporarily as students or staff isolate. Additional close contacts at school outside of a classroom should also isolate at home.
  • Additional areas of the school visited by the COVID-19 positive individual may also need to be closed temporarily for cleaning and disinfection.
  • Implement communication plans for school closure to include outreach to students, parents, teachers, staff and the community.
  • Students sent home for exhibiting symptoms or awaiting test results will be provided Distance Learning opportunities while they are out.
  • Only students who were in close physical contact with any student who tests positive or exhibits symptoms will be monitored by health staff. Being in the room with someone who was ill does not constitute close physical contact
  • Maintain regular communications with the local public health department.
If Someone At Home Tests Positive - If a student, staff member, or family member within the household tests positive for COVID-19 they should do the following:
  • Seek medical care from your healthcare provider in accordance with CDC and County Guidelines.
  • Alert the school health office as quickly as possible to ensure the student can be provided with resources and to get started on Independent Study.
  • Student should not come to school until they have been cleared to do so by your healthcare provider. If a family member is the one who is sick, you must test yourself after that family member is no longer showing symptoms to ensure you are not infected prior to returning to school.
Students should NOT go to school if they are sick. Sometimes it is difficult to tell if someone is sick from an infectious disease, such as COVID-19, that will spread to other people, or experiencing a condition that does not spread to others, like allergies.
 
Symptoms to Watch For - COVID-19 symptoms range from mild to severe illness and may appear 2-14 days after a person is exposed to the virus.
  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion/runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea
Allergy Symptoms range from mild to severe and can be triggered by pollen from trees, grass, molds, etc.
  • Sneezing
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Watery and itchy eyes
  • Itchy sinuses, throat or ear canals
  • Ear congestion
  • Postnasal drainage Spring allergies usually begin in February and can last until fall.
Some less common symptoms of allergies can include:
  • Headache
  • Shortness of breath
  • Wheezing
  • Coughing
