COVID-19 FAQs from SVPTA
Can PTA hold in-person activities?
We all must adhere to current guidelines regarding in-person activities. Our focus should always be children first & their safety. If the school sites are not allowing in person activities, PTA should align & not hold in person activities/events/programs. “WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER”
Can PTA members come on campus?
Please work directly with your principal, there is a COVID screening process & appointments are required to be on campus/school sites. It is reasonable for PTA to make an appointment to come pickup mail/utilize the copy machine. Again, appointments must be made ahead of time (call/email your school office). Please try to limit how many times you need to be on campus (2 times a month seemed reasonable at this time).
Who do I contact when questions come up?
When asked questions you don’t know the answer, please bring them to SVPTA President, Michele Sparks, & she will make sure to get the answers for you. SVPTA will also continue to help communicate information to the community. Please make sure & share our posts/messaging.
Can PTA create resource lists for parents & distribute them (ex/babysitters, tutors, etc)?
Neither the PTA or school sites should be collecting and/or recommending these kind of resources. This becomes an endorsement/promotion of such businesses, which neither SVUSD or PTA should be doing for many reasons, liability being one of them. There are current resources that are provided through SVUSD, including TLC & the community services group/catalog. Those resources can be shared. Regarding resources, parents can always start their own FB group. However, it should be separate from your PTA Facebook group/platforms.
