Bennett School District 29j is committed in an ongoing effort to keep all students, families, staff, and community members safe during the Covid-19 pandemic. The newly formed community liaison and district nurse have formed a partnership in order to guide the district through these unprecedented times. We are setting up a Covid-19 link on the district website where students, families, staff, and community members can get the latest information, resources, and guidance on Covid-19.
There will also be a Covid-19 hotline on the phone tree of each school. Families, staff, and community members can call regarding possible exposure, Covid-19 testing questions, questions on symptoms, etc. The community liaison and district nurse will get back to you as soon as possible. In case of possible exposure and/or infection, we will work in a confidential manner with school administration to determine if it is safe for the person to be in the school building ; and what steps to take next to guide the person to the correct resources.
Bennett School District 29j has taken measures to ensure that all essential school learning can continue online through our newly implemented seesaw platform. Families and students will be able to directly contact teachers in English and Spanish; this will guarantee that students do not miss out on valuable instruction if the student cannot do in-person learning.
The community liaison and district nurse welcomes your feedback. We truly appreciate your efforts at keeping your family and loved ones safe and healthy. Our primary goal is to maintain the safety, health, and integrity of all Bennett School District 29j stakeholders. We hope that by taking the safety measures enacted by Superintendent Robin Purdy and the Board of Education, we can continue to safely instruct our children during the 2020-21 school year.
