PBIS Assessment - Take Survey 04/06/2021

PBIS Assessment - Take Survey

Dear Parents/Guardians:

We want to hear about your experience with your student’s education. We invite you to participate in completing the School Climate Survey. This Survey includes questions about your student’s learning, school safety, and interpersonal relationships, as well as your attitude about the institutional environment and your personal involvement in school. Your responses will be very helpful in improving student relationships, learning conditions, and the overall school environment.

Beginning Monday, April 5, 2021, we invite all parents, guardians and caretakers to complete this survey for Albany Community School. The survey is completely anonymous and brief; it contains 21 questions and takes about 10 - 15 minutes to complete. You can take the survey online by using the following unique link: https://www.pbisassessment.org/Anon/iyU100cL1u0. (if you cannot access this online survey, please pick up a paper copy from the school, complete it, and return it with the school addressed stamped envelope provided.) please submit your responses by April 9, 2021.

All your responses are completely anonymous. We have no way to connect you to your answers, and results will only be reported as group responses. There are no right or wrong answers. We just want to know about your personal experiences. Responses are housed securely in an anonymous format within the University of Oregon Technical Assistance Center projects for evaluation research purposes. All evaluation research projects are in compliance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act, (343 CFR 99.31 (6)) and human subjects regulations (Protection of Human Subjects 45 CFR 46).

As you respond to each item, think about your own personal experiences as a parent, caregiver or guardian with Albany Community School. Please answer all of the questions, or your answers won’t be recorded, but you can mark “I prefer not to answer” if you don’t want to answer a question.

We hope you take the time to provide us with this valuable information. Feel free to call the school at (802) 755-6168 if you have any questions. Our school’s total survey results will be used to inform and develop appropriate strategies, procedures, and/or programs to enhance Albany school climate.

The link to complete the survey is https://www.pbisassessment.org/Anon/iyU100cL1u0

Thank you for your time and participation!

The 2020 holiday/winter break will be different for most of us, and we need to adjust. Family traditions that brought us together in the past may need be adapted to keep people safe this year. We can still capture the spirit of the holidays if we get creative. There are so many ways to express love, gratitude and generosity that won’t put your family or others at risk of getting sick. This is disappointing, but you can work to manage expectations ahead of time. Talk with your family about your time together and find ways to safely celebrate. With an open mind and a flexible plan, we will get through to the other side of this pandemic.

docs.google.com FOR SAFETY REASONS, THE STATE IS STRONGLY DISCOURAGING OUT-OF-STATE TRAVEL THIS HOLIDAY SEASON. It’s hard to imagine breaking with tradition and celebrating at home, but that is what a lot of Vermont families are deciding to do in 2020. Travel does increase your chance of getting and spreading COV...

[11/13/20]   “The bottom line is, if you don’t need to travel right now, don’t…. we’ll need to dig deep and double our efforts so we can protect the most vulnerable and keep our schools open, and our businesses. Simply refusing to do your part is dangerous to the rest of us.” - Gov. Phil Scott

[11/10/20]   Stay home when sick! If your child has any of the following symptoms they should not be at school: fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, lack of smell/taste, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, muscle aches, headache. Students may return to school when they are 24 hours symptom free. Help keep our school community safe by keeping your child home when sick.

Most people are growing tired of the pandemic and the lifestyle changes they have made to stay safe and healthy. It is hard to balance our risk of getting sick with COVID-19 and our human need for in-person connection with family and friends, especially during the holidays. We are asking the school community - including students, parents/caregivers, and staff – to make hard decisions about whether to participate in holiday traditions with loved ones that they may have not seen in person for months. If you are considering travel:
1.Check the map to find out the risk of COVID-19 infection at your destination,
2.Decide if the risk is worth it for your family,
3.Plan to have a safe trip or gathering, remain flexible and get your flu shot and
4.Quarantine when you return.

Should you stay or should you go? Decisions about holiday travel and gatherings are extra hard this year.

Please be aware that we are going to extra lengths to ventilate rooms here at the school for safety. It may mean that some of our spaces are cooler than usual. For your children's comfort, we recommend that they wear long pants and dress in layers. Also, please be sure to provide snow pants now that the snow has arrived, as well as boots, gloves, hats and a warm coat. We have very limited supplies of winter clothing to lend this year, especially with COVID - we can't "share" anything or borrow from lost and found. Thanks.
