                                 Return to School Plan Student Cohort Schedule for Hybrid Learning The below chart identifies which cohorts of students attend school in-person or remotely by date. Students who have opted to remain fully remote will continue learning remotely every day. Please contact your student’s school if you do not know your student’s cohort.


Hello IOE families! As we plan to return to in person learning, the Springfield Public School district, along with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, have encouraged increased mitigation strategies for COVID-19. If your child is returning to school in person, rapid testing and pool testing will be happening in the building. If you wish to have your child take part in pool testing, as well as have the option to have a rapid test if they are showing symptoms for COVID-19, you MUST fill out the 2 consents to do so. If the school doesn’t receive the consent(s) for the student, they will NOT be part of the pool testing process or be able to receive a rapid test if they were to show symptoms of COVID-19. There are 2 consents to be filled out. The first is for the student specific/rapid testing for students who are showing symptoms of COVID-19. You can electronically give consent by clicking on: 
https://app.beacontesting.com/register/with-code?code=UHASNL 
(if clicking on link doesn't work, copy and paste it to the search bar). Please enter your phone number or email, as that will grant successful activation. For pool testing, you can electronically give consent by clicking on: 
testcenter.concentricbyginkgo.com/minor-testing.  
Both links will ask for the school’s code (there is one for each). You can contact the nurse’s office for these codes. Both codes were also posted to the students’ Class Dojo/Schoology. Attached is the letter explaining pool testing by Concentra (in English and Spanish). Please take the time to read it as it is extremely informative! A connect ed phone call will be going out as a reminder. We are asking for you to consent no later than Thursday, April 1st. If you have any questions, please contact our office. We look forward to coming back to school safely!

Hola familias IOE! A medida que planeamos volver al aprendizaje en persona, el distrito de la Escuela Pública de Springfield, junto con el Departamento de Educación Primaria y Secundaria, han alentado el aumento de las estrategias de mitigación para COVID-19. Si su hijo está regresando a la escuela en persona, en el edificio se realizarán pruebas rápidas y pruebas de piscina. Si desea que su hijo participe en pruebas de grupo, así como tener la opción de hacerse una prueba rápida si están mostrando síntomas para COVID-19, debe llenar los 2 consentimientos para hacerlo. Si la escuela no recibe los consentimientos para el estudiante, NO formará parte del proceso de pruebas de la piscina o podrá recibir una prueba rápida si mostrara síntomas de COVID-19. Hay 2 consentimientos para ser llenados. La primera es para las pruebas específicas/rápidas del estudiante para los estudiantes que están mostrando síntomas de COVID-19. Puede dar su consentimiento electrónicamente haciendo clic en: https://app.beacontesting.com/register/with-code?code=UHASNL
(si hacer clic en el enlace no funciona, cópielo y péguelo en la barra de búsqueda). Introduzca su número de teléfono o correo electrónico, ya que eso otorgará una activación exitosa. Para las pruebas de grupo, puede dar su consentimiento electrónicamente haciendo clic en: testcenter.concentricbyginkgo.com/minor-testing.
Ambos enlaces pedirán el código de la escuela (hay uno para cada uno). Puede ponerse en contacto con la oficina de enfermería para obtener estos códigos. Ambos códigos también fueron publicados en la Clase Dojo/Schoology de los estudiantes. Adjunta es la carta explicando las pruebas de piscina por Concentra (en inglés y español). Por favor, tómese el tiempo para leerlo, ya que es extremadamente informativo! Una llamada telefónica connect ed saldrá como recordatorio. Le pedimos que consienta a más tardar el jueves 1 de abril. Si tiene alguna pregunta, póngase en contacto con nuestra oficina. ¡Esperamos volver a la escuela sanos y salvos!

Springfield Public Schools is making plans for a hybrid return-to-school this spring.  It’s important to note that this back-to-school option will depend on the public health situation at the time but right now, we are planning for a phased-in approach beginning in March and going through April and May. Please click on the link below before March 11, 2021 to complete the survey for each of your students and your choice to have them return to school for hybrid learning or remain in remote learning.  Please note, this decision is binding and once made, cannot be changed.  

Thank you for your input in this planning process.
