Q: How often will the district revisit the decision on the model chosen to ensure things remain safe? A: The district will revisit the learning model in use monthly. The goal would be to slowly return to 100% in-person learning. The district will decide what instructional model is being used in conjunction with the local health department. More frequently asked questions and answers are available on our website here: http://arkportcsdny.apptegy.us/o/arkportcsd/page/frequently-asked-questions--110
Q: Is the district planning to invest in plexiglass for reception areas of schools and nurses' supplies or tents for schools? A: Yes, the district will be investing in polycarbonate dividers for offices, the cafeteria, and one-on-one workspaces in classrooms. The district will also be purchasing outdoor tables and renting tents for outdoor classes. More frequently asked questions and answers are available on our website here: http://arkportcsdny.apptegy.us/o/arkportcsd/page/frequently-asked-questions--119
Q: What tools will be available to help guide parents through emotional health in helping children adjust to the ‘new normal’? A: All PK-12 teachers will be using Schoology so families will have just one system for accessing learning materials, assignments, grades and communications. Schoology will streamline the academic piece so that there is less stress at home surrounding student work. In order to address emotional health, students will be engaging in social emotional learning each week. Our PK-12 school counselor will continue to maintain an online bank of resources which can be accessed by parents or students at any time. Parents/guardians should always feel free to contact their students' teachers or the student services team with questions regarding emotional health. More frequently asked questions and answers are available on our website here: http://arkportcsdny.apptegy.us/o/arkportcsd/page/frequently-asked-questions--119
Q: How will Arkport schools handle drop-off/pick-up? A: The most significant change to drop-off/pick-up will be that parents and guardians will not be allowed to enter the building. Student drop-off before school will still occur at the PAC. Parents or guardians will be allowed to stay with their child until they reach the second set of double doors.

The district’s final virtual reopening session will take place Tuesday, Aug. 18 at 7 p.m. This meeting will be streamed live, barring any technical difficulties, on our website, Facebook page and YouTube channel. http://arkportcsdny.apptegy.us/article/285294?org=arkportcsd
Q: How will the district communicate positive cases of COVID-19 in the event schools are reopened? A: The district will work with the state and local health departments to communicate the possible COVID-19 exposure. This communication with the school community will align with the communication plan in the school’s emergency operations plan. In such a circumstance, it is critical to maintaining the confidentiality of the student or staff member as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
