Danbury Public School employees are taking on new and different roles during this public health emergency. Teachers and staff stepped forward to volunteer to distribute food that cafeteria workers prepare daily. Custodians continue to come in to disinfect, clean and prepare the school sites so laptops and essential supplies can be safely distributed. Secretaries are calling parents to help them to sign up for PowerSchool, and post instructions on their own social media accounts to spread the word about this critical step to online learning. Administrators and their staff have organize distribution of laptop computers and deliver them to the homes of families who can not leave so that all students can access Distance Learning. Nurses volunteer in schools and then go on to answer the City’s call for medical assistance for the homeless and the many needy families across the City. Superintendent Dr Sal Pascarella adds that the technology department has quite literally moved a mountain this week for students. Given all of this, he is asking for parents to help out by being patient with school staff as this is a learning curve for them as well, and be flexible as adjustments are made.
