Scott Bass sent the following email to all employees:

As we prepare for the start of school, the District remains committed to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace. To ensure a consistent process and intake of COVID-related requests for leaves of absence or accommodations, the Department of Human Resources will manage requests related to the following 3 issues:

- Individuals who are currently COVID-19 positive and are requesting leave of absence from work
- Individuals who suspect they may have or have been exposed to COVID-19 and will be tested or are currently awaiting results
- Individuals who are requesting an accommodation (example, a temporary alternative schedule) due to childcare locations being closed, someone living in the home is under a quarantine order, etc.….

We have created a process for these 3 scenarios, and accompanying forms. Individuals applying for any of these scenarios above will submit these requests through Adalia Medina-Graham or Dr. Suit per the normal leave process. Administrators or schools will not be handling these requests. Eligibility rules and official documentation of all requests will be required. Please read the form requirements carefully and follow all instructions.

Forms and fact sheets will be available on the link below. If you have questions, please reach out to Dr. Suit or HR directly.
