Preschool Return to Learn Plan
The first day of preschool will be Monday, September 28, 2020.
All preschool students who are returning to in-person instruction will be assigned a homeroom teacher for the year. The student-to-teacher ratio for morning and afternoon sessions will be 20-to-3, and paraprofessionals will help maintain health and safety guidelines. Teachers will use the CRCSD curriculum and Early Learning Standards.
Arrival and dismissal time will be designated. Attendance will be taken daily.

Providing meals to our students is a very fluid situation this year. Preschool locations with breakfast and lunch will eat in the cafeteria, depending on the building and administrator. Preschool locations with snack will be eaten in the classroom. Sanitary and safety precautions will take place.
In-Person Preschool Health and Safety Guidelines
Students and staff must follow recommended health and safety guidelines. Masks and/or face shields are required for staff and students at all times with appropriate accommodations made as needed. Arrival and dismissal time will be designed for minimal contact.
Students will continue to share materials with classmates. Materials and supplies will be sanitized between morning and afternoon sessions.
For sign-in, parents are not allowed to bring students into the building/classroom. Student drop-off is at a designated door, where teachers and paraprofessionals will sign students in. Parents are required to wear a mask when picking up and dropping off students.
All preschool students who participate virtually will attend CRCSD Remote Learning, a single elementary school taught by a preschool teacher not able to return. CRCSD Remote Learning will include all preschool teachers and students who select the virtual option.
Preschool teacher teams will work as Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) to create a uniform online course for preschool using Early Learning Standards and CRCSD curriculum. The online format for required remote learning is significantly more structured than Spring 2020’s continuous learning model, and will include scheduled remote learning, asynchronous instruction, and paper packets. Attendance is required.
