Updates regarding childcare

Today we met with several district 196 administrators and directors to discuss the on-going need to support childcare in several of our elementary schools.

A plan is now in place to start 2-week rotations by 10-month clerical staff for childcare support.  This will start on Monday, April 13th.  If you are one of the first to be selected you will receive a phone call today or tomorrow from your principal/administrator.  If you do not receive a phone call, this means you have not been selected for the first rotation.  The district hopes to start contacting those selected for the next round, April 27th – May 8th, later next week. 

Staff needs may change due to a variety of factors, such as enrollment increases. If additional days are assigned, the district will communicate that information in a timely manner. 

If you have questions or concerns about your ability to work childcare, please refrain from calling human resources until you have received a call from your principal/administrator regarding you assigned rotation.  The HR department has been extremely busy returning calls and in many cases, it is taking a couple of days to get back to employees. 

As you know, we are continually receiving Covid-19 updates so this plan could change at any time, please monitor your district email daily.  You may also find additional resources for families and staff on the district 196 website using the Covid-19 link.

Thank you again for all you are doing to support families, students, and the district.
