Covid Staff Shortages at Toyon Middle School Force Shift to Independent Study

Valley Springs, CA...After much discussion and assessing/analyzing of the situation and conditions specific to COVID and impacts on staffing, a decision has been made...as outlined below. • We are shifting to Independent Study (virtual learning model) at Toyon Middle School for the remainder of this week (Weds-Fri, 1/19-1/21)... with a plan to return to in-person learning on Monday, 1/24 • This direction is due to current and projected staff shortages at TMS (between 5-7 certificated and 3-4 classified staff) that presents impacts and concerns for health, safety and quality of programs, operations, supports and services.





Students and staff will be expected to engage in three days of virtual learning opportunities through Google Classroom (communication from teachers to students/parents will provide greater details)

We will need to have students on Independent Study contracts (within 30 days), will hope the state will accept these days as instructional days, or may look at a waiver for the days but will also have to prepare to make up these days at the end of the year if not. Pursuing the Independent Study option puts us in a better position regarding possible waivers and not having to make up the three days

Districtwide we will have a need for 11-19 certificated subs, dependent upon the day this week, and look to have anywhere from 7-9 positions left uncovered...at this point

Even using district and site administration, given the districtwide needs, we are unable to effectively and sufficiently cover all the positions we need to

We will monitor, assess and adjust on a daily basis...and make decisions based upon the impacts, needs and capacity to address them, with health and safety as a priority. Thank you,

Mark Campbell Superintendent Calaveras Unified School District

Maybe vaccines, masks and common sense Covid protocols might help?

Or, Murica and horse dewormer. Your choice.

    Stop showing up here with your common sense to solutions that we can turn into political topics.

    Of course, vaccines and masks would help. Even Trump admits it.

    But we're striving for a world full of Marjorie Taylor Greens here in Calaveras. So let's stay on message.. And fly your Trump 2024 flag high.

    Medical staff that tested positive can go back to work in a hospital setting. Teachers on the other hand if asymptomatic stay home? That’s the problem in a nutshell. We as a society have leader ship that does not have any common sense.

      These teachers need to get their asses back into the classroom. I don't believe that as many people test positive for Covid as what they say. Stop taking advantage of the system and get back in the classroom and wear your masks.

          Here is what I believe based on my real-life experience and NOT the media/politicians. My family and subsequently group of about 5 families got COVID in late 2019. It was all over Calaveras County at that time before it was "COVID." We all got it. Probably 30 people. We all recovered and NONE of this group are vaccinated and NONE wear a mask. Guess what. . . .wait for it. . . NONE of us have been sick since. That's 30 people living all over Northern California. It's called natural/acquired immunity. . .

            But do you mock, condemn, or belittle those of us that vaccinate and wear a mask?
            OUR actions will have no affect on you. You, and your 30 family members, can have an affect on my health.

        You of course would know better than medical professionals. Perhaps share your “beliefs” with the families and loved ones of the two that died in Calaveras this past week or so, The two in Amador as well. Promises to be a rough few weeks in places where the unvaccinated are giving the virus a stronghold:

          Six hospitalizations in Calaveras, too, out of maybe a dozen plus total Covid care beds? Guess some won’t believe this is really a thing till MTSJ has to put patients in the parking lot.

            No problem. There's plenty of room in the MTSJH parking lot for a refrigerated trailer to hold all the dead bodies.

            Man you all need to get some perspective. Hospitals are ALWAYS impacted this time of year. It's called FLU SEASON for a reason. Hospitals prepare for this year-round.

      Because hospitals are short handed and you’d be turned away if sick. And staff have better gear and a more sterile environment, though many are adverse to returning to work under these conditions. Would you seriously risk sending your child or grandchild to school with the current infection rate?

      Blame the teachers because they don't want to be exposed to covid carriers that come from families that are antivax and antimask.

        Seems to me, teachers should enjoy the 'freedom' to protect themselves by absence from school as much as anti mask/vax proponents should enjoy their 'freedom' to their own antisocial behaviors.

          Use precautions teachers and get your asses back in the classroom. The kids are not the problem with Covid, it's the stupid Hillbilly parents that share their masks with other people. If you think that people don't share their masks and spread disease then you need to get your head out of your ass.

          You buy groceries right? People who work in those stores are subjected to every walk of people in the county. They are the real heroes of this pandemic. Teachers and teachers unions have shown their true colors.

    100% At this point teachers are just using the COVID as an excuse to stay home. Happening all over the country at all levels of education. Our school-age generation will never recover and America will be weaker for the actions of politicians the past 2+ years.

        Now you can attempt to teach your kids at home. You threatened this anyway over the mandate. Have fun, thought I do feel bad for your kids. More for the kids that have responsible parents.

                IT SHOULD SAY REAP WHAT YOU SOW.
                SOW (plant seeds which is what you would reap)
                you put SEW (which is join, fasten, or repair)
