All sides are reporting that the teachers’ union and PPS reached a conceptual agreement in the early morning on Tuesday. They are meeting later today to put that agreement in writing by signing a ‘tentative agreement.’ By state law, a tentative agreement stops the ability to strike. The tentative agreement will also need to be ratified by the union and the school board to become the contract.
What does this mean for Harvey Scott School families this week?
TUESDAY(2/18): All after school activities except YMCA and SUN remain canceled.
WEDNESDAY(2/19): School will start at 8am and run until 11:45 am regardless of the status of the tentative agreement. YMCA is running from 11:45 to pickup.
Not sure about SUN. SUN SCHOOL IS CANCELED.
THURSDAY (2/20): If a tentative agreement is signed, school will continue as usual. Presumably YMCA and SUN would also continue as usual. The status of ability to hold the PTA meeting (6pm) at the school is unclear, but the alternative site will be the church across the street from the Prescott entrance of the school.
FRIDAY (2/21): If a tentative agreement is signed, school will continue as usual. Presumably YMCA and SUN would also continue as usual.
