Picture Day - Mark your calendars! Picture day will be on 10/6 for in person students, and on 10/7 for home study students. We will send more information home on the week of 10/27, but here is the information for pricing.
After School Pick Up - Thank you for your patience as we work out the kinks with pick up after school. Our students safety is our #1 concern, and we want to make sure that they are safely able to get to your cars, as well as ensure they are going with the person they should be. A couple of things would help us during pick up:
Wellness Checks with Aeries - Thank you so much to all of you that have been completing the Wellness Checks on Aeries. As we learn and adjust with this new process, we are going to ask that every family (both in person and home study) complete a check in every school day, regardless if they are on campus or not. This has allowed us to easily track and reach out to families on our end. Thank you so much for your commitment!
Vaccination Status for Volunteers - On 8/11/21, the CDPH released new requirements for all school employees, including parent volunteers, to provide proof of vaccination status in order to be on campus and serve students. Those that cannot provide proof of vaccination will need to provide a current (within the week) negative Covid test. The full details of this new order can be found here. We will coordinate how we want families to share their vaccination information with us soon.
Mask Mandates - During our board meeting on 8/5/21, we discussed the CDPH mask mandates for our school. Students and staff will need to wear a mask while on campus and indoors. We discussed how students will be able to remove their masks for lunch, recess, PE, as well as with breaks built in from their teachers. Our board also sought feedback from our staff on what we can do to expand the outdoor learning areas that are in place.
Student Supply Lists for Fall~Please click on your child's class below to see what supplies your child will need. Teachers will have students bring their supplies in during their assessment time the first weeks of school.
Tree Top Adventures - While it was a fantastic day for our Tree Top Adventure Field Trip, I wanted to acknowledge some mistakes that I made in the coordinating of the trip. I definitely took for granted that families had participated in the field trip before and knew what to do. I did not consider how many details that families new to our school would need, and I realize now that this caused a lot of stress and confusion. I apologize for this, and if I could go back and do it again, I would definitely do things differently.
Moving forward, myself and our staff will certainly be mindful of how we communicate information and think about things through the lens of families that may be new to our school.
Once again, I apologize, and if you would like to discuss this further with me please don't hesitate to reach out.
Stay At Home If Sick - Please, please, please, do not send your students to school if they are feeling under the weather. We have to treat every sick student as a potential covid case, which places a tremendous amount of stress on our staff. This could mean us requesting a negative covid test from a medical facility in order to ensure that students are safe on campus. Whether it's a seemingly innocent cough or runny nose, please err on the side of caution and keep your student home until it clears up. We are happy to provide independent study for them to make sure they don't miss out.
If you do need to keep your students home, please email Annette or myself ASAP so that we can coordinate Independent Study for you.
Important Update Regarding AQI & COVID - Please see the update that was sent out to families on 9/3/21 regarding the school's plan for what to do when the Air Quality is unhealthy and how this impacts our COVID plans for in the classroom.
Cross Country - We had a FANTASTIC showing by our athletes at the meet this last week at Newcastle. Almost all of our runners reduced their times, some by multiple minutes! Our next meet is scheduled for 9/22 at Franklin Elementary School in Loomis.
Important Update for 7th & 8th Grade Field Trip - The 7th/8th grade field trip next week has been canceled. We thank you for all of your efforts to make this happen.
