PSD shifting to hybrid learning 

Because of recent positive trends in data reported by the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment and improvements in COVID-19 test result turnaround times (as of mid-September), PSD is planning to move to hybrid education, which includes both in-person and remote learning.

Elementary grades will shift beginning in October according to this schedule:

Preschool students will return to in-person education Oct. 5. Early Childhood Education will communicate more information directly with their families. 

Here's what coming back to school will look like for elementary students:


Secondary schools

PSD middle schools and the four comprehensive high schools will return to in-person learning in a Phase 3 hybrid model Oct. 19.

  • Oct. 19 and 20 will be in-person transition days for sixth- and ninth-grade students
  • All other grades will be in remote education Oct. 19-20, and start in-person learning in Phase 3 Oct. 21. 

In a Phase 3 model, the weekly schedule will look like this for secondary students at all grade levels (6-12):  

  • "A group" attends school Mondays and Wednesdays (full days) with remote learning Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. 
  • "B group" attends school Tuesdays and Thursdays (full days) with remote learning Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
  • Fridays are Teacher Collaboration Days - all students in remote learning
     

PSD alternative high schools 

  • Poudre Community Academy and Polaris Expeditionary Learning School will start Phase 3, with A group attending in-person Oct. 19 and B group in remote education. 

  • Poudre Global Academy will begin hybrid learning the week of Oct. 19, and you can expect more detailed communication from the school. 

  • Centennial High School students will start the third hexter Nov. 11, in Phase 3 and families can expect more detailed communication from the school.

Verification of employment

For automated verification of employment for salary and dates of hire, please use "The Work Number." Information is available on the Payroll Department web page (staff log in required). 
 

Human Resources FAQs and recent updates

  • For answers to questions about leave time, what to do if you’re sick, staff expectations, requesting accommodations and more, see this FAQ guide from HR.

  • HR has temporarily paused on classified hiring until staffing fluctuations are resolved. Contact Executive Director of Human Resources Vicki Thompson, at vthompson@psdschools.org, with questions. 

  • As a result of staffing fluctuations and being in remote education, HR and Payroll are working to verify extra-duty assignments. Extra-duty assignment payments will start later in the fall as soon as assignment verifications have been entered. 


Staff expectations  

  • Employees must complete the PSD employee symptom check (please login using PSD credentials) and get a green “pass” before entering a PSD school or facility.  
  • Staff are on duty at the start of their 2020-21 contract and must be available during regular work hours. 
  • Staff must be available for scheduled staff meetings and collaboration sessions in alignment with the Employee Agreement. 
  • Minimize in-person meetings whenever possible. In-person meetings must follow social distancing requirements, face coverings must be worn and a remote option must be provided. 
  • Indoor meetings with more than 50 people are prohibited, in accordance with LCDHE guidelines.   

 

Returning to work during the COVID-19 pandemic 

If you have concerns about returning to work at a PSD school or building, you can find information, options and procedures on the PSD Human Resources web page.  

Symptom-tracking tool: Before entering a PSD school or building, staff must report their symptoms and receive a green “pass” beforehand. The electronic COVID-19 screening application can be used on any mobile device. If an employee is not able to complete their screening prior to reporting to work, they should contact their supervisor.

Employees can adjust their screening throughout the day. If an employee accidentally reports symptoms or contacts, they will see a red stop sign. On that same screen, in the bottom left corner, there is a back button that allows them to edit their screen. If an employee feels okay in the morning but then reports symptoms mid-day, they should update the screener. 

Learn more on the COVID-19 Employee Screening Process web page.


JSSC Access

The JSSC is open 7:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday.  Main exterior doors will be unlocked during business hours to allow for walk-ins.  However, guests to the JSSC will not be allowed to enter the building beyond the reception area unless they are accompanied by an employee.  Appointments are highly encouraged to make sure the employee needed to meet with is available.  Human Resources will continue to require employees and new hires to make an appointment by emailing hr@psdschools.org.
