ABCUSD teachers will be relieved to know that they will be paid through the cancellation of classes and that they will only be required to travel three days to their respective schools to learn the District’s new Online Learning at Home Program.

HMG-LCCN has learned that beginning next Monday, the district will conduct three half-day sessions of professional development regarding the online program. 

Teachers will be at their schools on Monday from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., while on Tuesday and Wednesday, they will have the option of coming in at 9-12 or 12-3. 

Following Wednesday, the teachers will have the option of providing the online instruction from their home or their classroom. This will remain in place until March 27, 2020, when school could resume.

Breakfast and lunch meals will be provided at all schools in a “Grab and Go” process.

Breakfast will be served from 8-8:30 a.m. while lunch will be served from 11:30-12. The meals for Friday will be provided on Thursdays. 

Other ABCUSD employees will be coming in at their regular times with duties as assigned. 

Administration and classified staff will work Monday-Thursday.  The entire District will be closed on Fridays.

    SIPPING WATER EVERY 15 MINUTES MAY BE A LITTLE EXTREME BUT IT CAN’T HURT!l

    This info is from my friend who works for CDC who passed this along to his family and friends. I’m passing it along as well.. The new NCP coronavirus may not show sign of infection for many days, how can one know if he/she is infected. By the time they have fever and/or cough and go to the hospital, the lungs are usually 50 % Fibrosis and it’s too late! Taiwan experts provide a simple self-check that we can do every morning: Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds. If you complete it successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stuffiness or tightness, etc., it proves there is no fibrosis in the lungs, basically indicating no infection. In critical times, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air. SERIOUS EXCELLENT ADVICE by Japanese Doctors treating COVID-19 cases: Everyone should ensure your mouth & throat is moist, never DRY.

    Take a few sips of water every 15 mins at least. WHY? Even if the virus gets into your mouth…drinking water or other liquids will WASH them down through your esophagus into the stomach. Once there in tummy…your stomach ACID will kill all the virus. If you don’t drink enough water more regularly….the virus can enter your windpipes and into the LUNGS. That’s very dangerous. Pls send and share with family, friends and family.

    IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT – CORONA-VIRUS

    Last evening dining out with friends, one of their uncles, who graduated with a master’s degree and who worked in Shenzhen Hospital ( Guangdong Province, China ) sent him the following notes on Coronavirus for guidance
    1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold
    2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.
    3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun.
    4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.
    5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours – so if you come into contact with any metal surface – wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap.
    6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it.
    7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.
    8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but – a lot can happen during that time – you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on.
    9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.
    10. Can’t emphasise enough – drink plenty of water!
    THE SYMPTOMS
    1. It will first infect the throat, so you’ll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days
    2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further.
    3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.
    4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you’re drowning. It’s imperative you then seek immediate attention.
    SPREAD THE WORD – PLEASE SHARE
