For parents who share custody, many who pick up their children after school according to Joyce Barnes, Executive Assistant for the Superior Court of Tuolumne County “The Court has determined that the Governor’s current order to stay at home does not supersede custody and visitation orders made by the Court, and they are still enforceable.” Therefore, parents’ travel-related to visitation orders is permitted as essential travel.

What will School Look Like in August?
Paul Gardner, Superintendent says, “We are planning for several contingencies. The most likely situation for August is that we will be in Phase 2 of California’s Pandemic Roadmap. In this phase, schools would open but need to provide safety precautions – physical distancing, face coverings, extra cleaning and disinfecting, etc. This will have little effect on homeschooling except for our onsite and vendor classes. As you can imagine, this is impossible to separate students adequately with our onsite classes full. Therefore, we are working with staff and families to come up with the best way to keep students, their families, and staff as safe as possible. HCS Directors Ms. Reynosa and Ms. Hansen will be reaching out for input from you in the near future.”
Homeschool teachers were asked to provide some GENERAL tips that our campus program parents might benefit from during our closure. Here is their advice.
- Begin each day with breakfast , conversation, a good quote to talk about, journaling, read aloud and/or a walk.
- Make a schedule of goals/tasks the kids can see (could be simple as a page taped to the fridge of some of things that your teachers have provided). Give them agency to complete work on their own time frame but keep them accountable to get those things done. (I.e. “this is your math assignment”, not “you have to do an hour of math”)
- Be sure to take breaks with a snack and head outside. Go for a walk, trampoline, exercise. Anything physical.
- Read, read, read. Read together, read to them, read and discuss what they have read. Start a family book club. Your student’s teachers are providing lots of ideas in their packets/online information.
- Spend a minute or two at the end of each day to record/reflect on what your kids did for “school” that day. Have kids teach you something about what they practiced that day.
