THE Public School System is seeking permission from the Governor’s Covid-19 Task Force to conduct face-to-face orientation for parents.

Education Commissioner Dr. Alfred Ada said parents will need assistance with online registration, among other things.

“We need the task force’s permission to allow us to bring parents to the campus to register their children because some of them do not know how to do it online. We need to be helping them, one-on-one,” he added.

Ada said the orientation will follow the safety protocols — getting the participants’ temperature, listing their names, and observing the three Ws: wash your hands/sanitize, watch your distance, and wear your mask.

PSS also needs the permission of the task force to distribute learning packets in the coming days, he added.

The new school year will start on Sept. 8, but Ada said PSS will prioritize  the social-emotional issues of students before going to academic learning.

PSS will evaluate its students and their families to find out if they need help, Ada said. PSS will then refer them to the right agencies, he added.
