SchoolPointe began conducting webinars regarding communications to your districts community about the Coronavirus. We have completed two successful webinars so far with two more this week and spots are still available. During this webinar, learn the best ways for your district to communicate confidently to your parents, staff, and students. Not only will we be showing you examples of how customers are already providing their communities with centralized Coronavirus Update pages, but we will show you how to post your communications of school closings, alerts, cancellations all with one post, and share to multiple platforms with ease. Below are resource pages that include the latest video of our Coronavirus Communications Plan, and different links to help your district during your time of planning.

What is a dark page?
When bad news or an emergency suddenly strikes your school, the website is ordinarily the first place parents, students, staff and the community turns to for information. Given the extreme time pressure inherent in crisis management today, there is just no time to construct a new crisis site from scratch. Instead, a prebuilt dark page can be quickly “turned on” as needed during a crisis management situation.
STOP CYBER BULLYING ON THE SPOT:
When adults respond quickly and consistently to bullying behavior they send the message that it is not acceptable. Research shows this can stop bullying behavior over time.
Parents, school staff, and other adults in the community can help kids prevent bullying by talking about it, building a safe school environment, and creating a community-wide bullying prevention strategy.

For many schools, teachers, and students, getting back into the swing of things after Thanksgiving break may be difficult. Everyone is used to sleeping in, eating and doing whenever they want to, so the school day routine may be a bit hard to get adjusted to again.
Teachers should try to avoid diving right into the schoolwork after the break. Instead, make the adjustment a little bit easier by welcoming students back with fun classroom activities that incorporate what they did over their holiday vacations and to get them back on track and motivated to learn once again.
