  • Covid-19 Precautions

    Posted by Raintree Scholar on 7/22/2020 10:20:00 AM

                                                                    Raintree Elementary


    Here is a basic overview of some precautions and routines we are implementing to help maintain the safety of our students and faculty during this difficult time.

    1. Buses will be at half capacity and may have to run two loads when needed. We encourage parents to drop-off students, if possible, to avoid the number of students on the bus and to help maintain the flow of students entering.
    2. Students riding the bus will enter the main hall. There are black dots on the right for upper elementary 6 feet apart and red dots on the left of the walkway that are 6 feet apart for lower elementary.
    3. Students entering will head straight to the cafeteria to wash their hands, pick up their breakfast, and then head straight to their classrooms where they will be temperature checked.
    4. Students’ desks will be 4-6 ft. apart (to the extent possible) based on CDC recommendations. Squares on the floor will mark each student area.
    5. Scheduled handwashing with soap and water will be before breakfast, after restroom break, before/after lunch, after recess, and when exiting the restroom. More washing may be done as needed or when able.
    6. Parents are encouraged to send a water bottle with students. (Please label with the student’s name.) We will have areas for them to refill their bottles when needed. Water fountains have been turned off. -----These water bottles should be used for water only.
    7. Recess areas are designated for classes, and they will not play on the playground equipment or mix with any other class.
    8. Desks, light switches, door handles, etc. will be cleaned between each class transition by the teacher and several times by the custodians.
    9. Students will transaction in a manner so that they do not pass closely to another class. 6 feet distance will be used.
    10. Students will have P.E. They will have activities that do not allow them to touch each other nor will be mixed with another class.
    11. We will be doing Harambe virtually and no assemblies or large group gathers will happen at this time.
    12. Lunch schedules have been spread out to accommodate only a few classes at a time. Classes will be separated by distance and partitions.
    13. Buses and car riders will be dismissed separately. Car riders will be called first. Buses will be separated and called one at a time. Early buses will each have a designated side of the hallway to walk while being monitored by faculty.
    14. Students with a temperature of 100.4 or above will be removed from class and laced in a designated area. Parents will be called and must pick up the child.
    15. Students in 3rd-5th grade must wear a mask. (Please label with your child’s name.) We will have mask breaks throughout the day. They will not have to wear them during P.E. due to the amount of space available and during recess or lunch.
    16. No person other than a district staff may enter the main school building at any time. Visitors needing to drop off items or needing assistance mut communicate with the secretary in the front office.
    17. Anyone entering the building (other than Pre-k – 2nd graders) must wear a mask and be COVID-19 symptom free. Please read and follow all signage posted.

    There are many more processes and procedures that we are doing to maintain everyone’s safety. These are just some basic cautions we have put into place.

    Please know that this may changed based on the CDC, LA Dept of Health, or the governor.

  • Scammers Cash in during the COVID Pandemic

    Posted by Lee Ann Hepler on 3/24/2021 12:00:00 PM

    It has been over a year since COVID-19 made its first appearance in our area. In response to the virus, we have adapted to new daily routines to help stay safe and healthykeep your distance, wear a mask, and wash your handsA few months ago, several vaccines became available, and the scammers of the world saw an opportunity. Because of these quick-thinking scammers, our new daily routines should also include keeping a watchful eye on our bank accounts and personal information and making smart decision when it comes to sharing personal information.  


    Man holding laptop.  “Fraudsters are always looking to take advantage of significant world events. The COVID-19 pandemic and its corresponding rapid digital acceleration brought about by stay-at-home orders is a global event unrivaled in the online age,” said Shai Cohen, senior vice president of Global Fraud Solutions at TransUnion 


    According to Colleen Tressler, the scammers’ newest attempt to swindle your personal information involves sending phony vaccine surveys. Ms. Tressler is with the FTC’s Division of Consumer and Business Education and in her article, she states that these opportunistic scammers are sending emails and text messages with links to surveys. These surveys appear to be legitimate, but it is all an elaborate ruse to steal your personal data. Her advice to avoid being scammed is simple 

    • Do not click on any links or open attachments.  
    • Do not call or use the number in the email or text.  
    • Do not give out your banking account, credit card, or personal information.  
    • Report scams to the FTC at ReportFraud.ftc.gov.  

    In the same way that we are vigilant in protecting our health, we must also be vigilant in protecting our financial and personal information. Just like viruses, scammers are out there looking for a weak spot to capitalize on – inoculate yourself against these scammers by keeping your information private.
