PSD COVID-19 response 

Returning to work during the COVID-19 pandemic 

Options for those with concerns

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


Order COVID-19 supplies through CSC

Facility Services has a coordinated a request system for needed COVID-related supplies including non-surgical masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, facial tissue, spray bottles, and thermometers. If your department or school needs any supplies, please contact the Customer Support Center at 490-3333. The CSC will submit a request for the supplies, and facilitate getting the supplies to you. Because of frequent supply chain interruptions and shortages, please only order needed items.


Staff Remote Learning/Tech Hub website

To reach the staff PSD Remote Learning/Tech Hub website and for questions related to PSD's response and staff, visit the PSD COVID-19 Staff FAQ web page. Employees must be logged into the staff website to access this page. Additional information is on the PSD Remote Learning and COVID-19 Response web page.

 

Remote work in place - Symptom-tracking tool clarification

Staff who can work remotely are asked to do so at least through June, unless otherwise directed. Those working remotely do not have to fill out the screening application. Anyone planning to physically enter a PSD school or building must report their symptoms and receive a green “pass” beforehand. 

The electronic COVID-19 screening application uses PSD SSO (Apple page) and 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 regarding steps they should take prior to reporting to work.  A link to the symptom-tracking tool is also in the “PSD Bookmarks” folder. Learn more on the COVID-19 Employee Screening Process web page on the staff site.

PSD’s phone system updgrade

From June 5-15, the IT department will be upgrading the district’s phone service. This upgrade will address concerns, such as the aging telephone systems in the schools, security and the need for more extensions (i.e. the three new under-construction schools).   

  • After summer break, you'll need to dial the full 7-digit extensions for all numbers in the district, including voicemail. We will no longer be able to dial the 4-digit numbers, even at schools. 
  • You may have a new IP phone at your desk, connected to your computer. Phase-in for new IP phones  begin in the fall. 
  • You'll retrieve voicemails by pressing the voicemail button on your IP phone, dialing the 7-digit phone number, or going to voicemail.psdschools.org. 

Questions? 

  • Contact office managers or email the Support Center at helpdesk@psdschools.org.
  • More information will be sent out closer to August, but new guides are available on the Avaya Phones Application page on the Tech HUB. 


Software available for summer 

District-contracted applications, such as Big Ideas, Envision, Lexia, Wonder and others, will be available for students over the summer. Students will be able to continue using these applications throughout the summer, until integrations/rosters for 2020-21 are completed by Aug. 3. Clever (https://clever.com/in/poudre) will act as a portal to these applications for students. Some applications might have licensing expirations or vendor processes that could affect access.   

If students need to use an on-demand application over the summer, please contact the vendor to ensure availability. Teacher access to EdTech Pro-Accounts will continue. As subscriptions are renewed to the EdTech Pro-Accounts for 2020-2021, additional steps needed from staff will be communicated if applicable. 

Personal devices can be used to log into applications. Sites are coordinating with Mental Health, Language Culture and Equity, Integrated Services and Early Childhood departments to provide PSD devices to students in need. 

  

PSD IT technical support will continue throughout summer

Please complete the PSD COVID-19 Employee Screening Process before coming to the ITC and wear a cloth face covering or mask. If you're sick, your appointment can be rescheduled.
