Andover teachers went to work Monday but stayed outside to highlight coronavirus concerns - The Boston Globe

Andover teachers went to work Monday but stayed outside to highlight coronavirus concerns – The Boston Globe

Andover teachers refused to enter school buildings on their first day of work Monday, officials said, spending a professional development day outdoors to highlight safety concerns as the district prepares to bring students back Sept. 16 for a mix of in-person and remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The move drew a swift rebuke from the Andover Public Schools, whose spokeswoman called it an “illegal work stoppage” that could lead to litigation.

In a statement posted on Facebook over the weekend, the Andover Education Association, the union for teachers and other school personnel, said the decision to stay outside was a “workplace safety action.” The move came in response to the school district’s “lack of good-faith bargaining” over how to keep students and staff safe when schools reopen, the union said.

“It is simply not safe at this time for students and staff to be working together in crowded settings inside these buildings,” union president Matthew Bach said in the statement. “Members have decided they will not risk the health and safety of students, staff, or the community by walking into buildings that for decades have been underfunded, understaffed, and poorly maintained.”

Bach could not be reached for comment Monday.

District spokeswoman Nicole L. Kieser criticized the union’s action.

“It is unfortunate that some our educators did not report to school buildings for their first day of work,” Kieser said in a statement. “Each school in the district communicated with their staff to check in inside their respective buildings for professional development. Over the summer, the Andover School Committee, all district administrators, and the Return to School Task Force spent thousands of hours and invested hundreds of thousands of dollars planning for the 2020-21 school year with health and safety of our students and staff as a top priority.”

Kieser said the teachers’ decision was an affront to students and parents.

“Today’s action by the Andover Education Association (AEA) shows a disregard for our families and students, who have confidence in the district’s work to ensure our buildings are safe for our students and staff,” Kieser said. “Our families overwhelmingly chose the hybrid model for their children to return to school this fall. The AEA’s actions appear to align more with the state’s union leadership than with the needs of our students.”

The School Committee was slated to discuss “options for litigation” in private session Monday afternoon, she said.

“The Andover Education Association might believe this is a ‘workplace safety action’,” she said. “It is, in fact, considered an illegal work stoppage.”

Under Andover’s hybrid model, students will learn online on Wednesdays to allow for cleaning, according to the plan the district submitted to the state. On the other days, half of the students will learn in-person and the other half will learn remotely. A “remote academy” will also be available for students who are required or choose to learn remotely full time.

Each Massachusetts school district was required to submit a reopening plan to the state. About 70 percent of districts plan to bring students back to the classroom at least part time this fall, even as teachers unions have lobbied aggressively to keep buildings closed.

Christine Bronson, a sixth-grade math teacher at Wood Hill Middle School who lives in Dover, N.H., said in the union’s statement that her city’s School Committee had said it wouldn’t “put students and teachers in harm’s way” despite low COVID-19 case counts there.

“It’s really sad that Andover teachers are being put in a position of having to fight to protect ourselves and our students,” Bronson said in the union’s statement. “Bringing everyone and their germs into these buildings right now is just too risky.”

Another Wood Hill teacher, Julian DiGloria, who serves on the union’s bargaining team, said in the group’s statement that about 20 percent of Andover families have chosen to begin the year remotely.

“We all agree that in-person learning is far better for students than remote instruction,” DiGloria said. “We want nothing more than to be in our classrooms as soon as possible, but only when it’s safe.”

For kids with special needs, online schooling divides haves and have-nots

For kids with special needs, online schooling divides haves and have-nots

It’s Tuesday morning, and teacher Tamya Daly has her online class playing an alphabet game. The students are writing quickly and intently, with occasional whoops of excitement, on the little whiteboards she dropped off at their homes the day before along with coloring books, markers, Silly Putty and other learning props — all of which she created or paid for with her own money.

Two of the seven children in her combined third and fifth grade class weren’t home when Daly came by with the gift bags. One of the two managed to find her own writing tablet, thanks to an older brother, but the other can’t find a piece of paper in her dad’s house. She sits quietly watching her classmates on Zoom for half an hour while Daly tries futilely to get the father’s attention. Maybe the student is wearing earphones; maybe the father is out of the room.

As children head back to school online across California and much of the nation, some of the disparities that plague education are growing wider. Instead of attending the same school with similar access to supplies and teacher time, children are directly dependent on their home resources, from Wi-Fi and computers to study space and parental guidance. Parents who work, are poor or have less education are at a disadvantage, as are their kids.

Daly teaches elementary students with special needs. The children in her class, who have a variety of diagnoses and intellectual disabilities, are at even higher risk — they can’t work independently and need more hands-on instruction. “The more they’re not getting those kinds of accommodations, the further they’re going to fall behind,” said Allison Gandhi, a managing director in special education at the nonprofit American Institutes for Research.

Educators and families fear devastating long-term consequences from COVID-19 for the nearly 800,000 California children who received special education services. So, in early August, the state announced it was developing a waiver application process for schools, even in COVID-plagued counties, that want to bring small groups of these students back for in-person education.

“There are simply kids that will never, ever have that quality learning that we all desire to advance online, no matter what kind of support we provide, even if we individualize it,” Gov. Gavin Newsom said at an Aug. 14 news conference.

Online learning is interfering with the students’ individualized education programs, or IEPs — legal agreements among families, school districts and specialists that set academic and behavioral goals for students and the services they’re entitled to.

The gap in online learning experience is sharply visible in Daly’s class, and the parents’ role is crucial. For parents who don’t have to work, distance learning may be tense and time-consuming, but it becomes part of a daily routine to be endured until the pandemic ebbs. For others, schooling is an unworkable nightmare burdening parents already stretched to their limits.

School started Aug. 12. By day five, Daly knew which children had the luxury of a stay-at-home parent and which were being supervised by older siblings. She knew which students struggled to get online on time every day — a new state requirement for all virtual learners — and which ones needed reminding to eat breakfast before class started.

She also knew, from last spring, that most of the parents couldn’t print the worksheets she had uploaded to Google Classroom. Their printers were broken, or printer ink cost too much, or they didn’t have printers. For this semester, she set up a time every Thursday for parents to drive by the school and pick up packets for the following week.

Daly works at Emery Park Elementary School in Alhambra, east of downtown Los Angeles, where two-thirds of the students qualified last year for free or reduced-price school meals. The school has loaned about 80% of the 434 students Chromebooks because they didn’t have computers at home, said principal Jeremy Infranca.

Like most schools in California, Emery Park started the school year in virtual classrooms — the safest option for a state with a stubbornly persistent infection rate. The Alhambra school district has yet to decide whether to apply for a waiver to bring students with special needs back on campus. Infranca and Daly would like to — if they can secure COVID-19 protective gear for themselves and their students, and if families feel comfortable with it.

In the meantime, Daly is doing her best to accommodate her families, which isn’t easy. Parents have told her to limit live group instruction to an hour a day, so as not to interfere with child care schedules or the laptop needs of other children in the household. To make up for the reduced time, Daly records several 15- to 30-minute videos explaining the work to be done and plans to schedule an individual session with each child once a week.

“I choose to be positive about this experience, and I choose to communicate and do my best to reach out to the students and connect with parents and family members,” said Daly. “We just need to be proactive, and also a little patient.”

Families have different opinions about whether to return their kids to the schoolhouse. It often depends more on a family’s desperation over child care than consideration of COVID-19 risks.

Cat Lee, 44, was nervous at first when she realized she had to take on the bulk of hands-on teaching for her son, Jacob, a fifth grader in Daly’s class.

“I wondered, would I be able to teach him as well, and would he be able to learn it?” she said.

Lee is a stay-at-home mom, and so far she has been able to stick to the schedule Daly lays out. She’s there with Jacob at every Zoom session and logs onto the Seesaw app to go through all the assignments. She praised Daly for her curriculum, which she felt was better and easier to teach than what the family received back in March. But she had reservations about her son’s new normal.

“It’s really slowing down his learning; plus, he doesn’t interact with kids anymore,” said Lee.

Still, if she had the chance to send Jacob for in-person learning now, Lee wouldn’t take it. She has concerns about their immune systems — Lee had a kidney transplant five years ago, and Jacob was born at just 27 weeks’ gestation — and is holding out for a COVID vaccine before allowing Jacob to resume his normal activities.

Not that she doesn’t have doubts.

“My fear is that he’s going to be home for so long, he’ll be so used to it and he won’t want to go back to school,” she said.

Danielle Musquiz, a 32-year-old mother with five elementary school-aged boys — four adopted from a relative — would favor a return to school. She gets three or four hours of sleep each night because of her 90-hour workweek with two jobs, as a home aide and a cashier at a regional park.

Four of her sons receive special education services, including an adopted middle child who is in Daly’s class and has cognitive delays linked to fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. The children, crowded together at the dining room table or in the living room, listen to their classes with earphones to keep from disturbing one another, which means she can’t hear a teacher calling out to her from the screen.

The four kids have individual education programs, but it’s hard for Musquiz to oversee them “with the minimal amount of time I have at home,” she said. She’s feeling overwhelmed by having to coordinate, supervise and respond to teachers, counselors and therapists for each child.

Musquiz is working longer hours than before the pandemic, and she picks up shifts at the park when the boys’ former stepfather takes them for the weekend.

“I’m slowly starting to say — and I know that this sounds bad — I don’t care anymore about the kids’ schooling,” Musquiz laughed nervously. “I feel like it’s chaos, and I’m drowning.”

To help with child care, her mother lives with the family Monday through Thursday, and her sons spend Thursday nights at her sister’s house. On Fridays, nine kids are all streaming their classes online from that house. On a recent Friday, the Wi-Fi broke, prompting a call from the school of one of her sons asking why he had left class early.

If she had the opportunity, Musquiz would send her children back to in-person learning in a heartbeat.

“None of my kids are really going to learn what they need to,” said Musquiz. “They need hands-on, they need interaction, they need motivation, and these classes are not doing that for them.”

    We Do Not Accept C.O.D.

    Please be sure to always write the sell order number on the outside of your package.

    • All orders must be postmarked within 7 days of the date the buy list was submitted. Failure to do so may result in an update to the order total based on current purchase prices or in your order being returned. We strongly suggest that you choose a shipping method that includes both delivery confirmation as well as insurance. Please be sure to pack your items securely. TrollAndToad.Com is not responsible for packages not received. Please note that if your package appears damaged it will be immediately refused upon delivery and returned to you. If your package arrives at our facility with Postage Due we will notify you via email and deduct the total due from your sell order.

    • If you have multiple buy lists you can send them together in the same package. However, if doing so you must write each individual order number you are sending on the outside of the box. Below is an example of how the order numbers need to be written:

    • Failure to adhere to this policy may result in your orders being returned. We are not responsible for any order that is lost due to a violation of this policy.

    • We ask that you do not send products for a single order in multiple packages. Your order can not be processed until all packages arrive at our facility and just because it was shipped at the same time does not mean it will arrive altogether. If you must separate the order into different packages, please clearly label the outside of the box as to how many packages are being sent in total and which package each is. Also, please be sure to write the order number on the outside of each package. For example; Order # 11111 box 1 of 5, Order # 11111 box 2 of 5, etc.

    • You may not send returns, payments, etc in the same package as your sell order.

    • Cards may not be shipped in binders, 9 pocket pages, top-loaders or sleeves. This helps expedite the time it takes us to process your order. We reserve the right to refuse any buy list orders that do not adhere to this rule or charge a fee for additional processing.

    • Cards should also be packaged in order of the invoice provided upon checkout completion (first face-up card in the deck should be the first card on the invoice).

    • To keep your cards from being damaged, you can divide the cards (if there are several) into decks and sandwich them between something such as cardboard to keep them from shifting within a package. A sheet of paper folded and taped around each deck is another easy way to secure your items. If this method is used, be sure to label each deck as 1/3, 2/3, etc. so we know what order they go in and that you will not receive a sorting fee. Deck boxes are another common means of keeping cards from moving in transit. Making sure there is no additional room in a package is the key to making sure the items are not damaged.

    Packing Miniatures:

    • Please make sure that the miniatures are placed in bags that are sorted by set. Each bag should be labeled with its corresponding set. Cards should also be sorted by set and then in numerical order within each set. Bulk miniatures and cards should be sorted the same way and must be clearly separated from any singles. Failure to do so can result in a sorting fee. Additionally, do not individually wrap miniatures in packing material unless it is of significant value (IE: $15 or more) as this slows processing significantly.

    Packing Video Games:

    • Video games should be in the order of the invoice to avoid a sorting fee. Small, loose cartridges can be placed into sandwich bags that are separated by console (IE: Gameboy, Gameboy Advance, Nintendo DS, etc). Filling any empty space within a package will keep the games in order during shipping. If there are 20 or more games with a single sticker that must be removed and/or orders that contain 10 or more games that have two (2) or more stickers on each will also result in a sorting fee.

    • Put the items in the order of your invoice, failure to do so may result in a sorting fee of $10.00 per hour spent sorting your order. This fee would be deducted from your order total. Please make sure that your bulk is easily discernible from your singles.

    You can check the status of your order by going to My Account > Buy List Order History. There will be a column displaying the order’s status; simply locate the specific order number you are looking for.

    In Transit: Your order has not arrived or has not been checked in yet.

    Arrived at TrollAndToad.Com: We have verified that your package has arrived at our facility.

    Processing: We are currently evaluating your order to verify its contents. If any problems are found, you will be contacted via email.

    Waiting for Customer: If your order has an issue, such as a deduction, we need to talk to you about a revised offer. Watch for an email from us. If you do not see an email in your inbox, check your Spam box, as some email hosts may filter our emails.

    Confirmed, Pending Payment: We have confirmed your order or you have accepted our counteroffer, and are now in the queue to be paid by our accounting department.

    Complete: We have sent your payment.
