Principals Letter January 7th, 2022

January 07, 2022

Greetings, 

Thank you for your patience over this past week as we transitioned some classes to remote, while also supporting in person students.  As a school, we have listened to your feedback and adjusted to the needs of our students and families.  At home tests were distributed at arrival, dismissal, and to families who were impacted by any classroom quarantine.  We anticipate many students and staff members beginning to return on January 10th.  As more and more students and staff return over the next 2 weeks, some remote classrooms will begin to close. Please fill out the survey sent out by teachers if you are interested in continuing remote instruction for the week of January 10th-14th.   If you have questions or concerns, please reach out via email.  

New Guidelines for Quarantine (please be patient as it changes daily)

  • If your child has tested positive in the last 90 days, they do not need to quarantine.
  • If  your child is vaccinated, they do not need to quarantine unless they are showing symptoms. 
  • If your child has been asked to quarantine for 10 days, they can get tested on the 5th day and return on the 7th day with a negative COVID test.  
  • The CDC 5 day quarantine period only applies to fully vaccinated staff members who test positive, not students. 

Upcoming Dates: 

  • Jan 12th -Virtual School Tour @ 6pm
  • Jan 17th -MLK Day (No School)
  • Jan 18th -National Dance Institute starts for 4th grade
  • Jan 18th -School Tour @ 3pm
  • Jan 24th -Lunar New Year Week begins
  • Jan 27th -Ajna Dance begins for 3rd grade
  • Jan. 28th -Lunar New Year Family Friday

Saludos,

Gracias por su paciencia durante la semana pasada mientras hicimos la transición de algunas clases a remotas, al mismo tiempo que apoyamos a los estudiantes en persona. Como escuela, hemos escuchado sus comentarios y nos hemos ajustado a las necesidades de nuestros estudiantes y familias. Distribuimos pruebas de hogar de covid en la llegada, la salida y a las familias que se vieron afectadas por cualquier cuarentena en el aula. Anticipamos que muchos estudiantes y miembros del personal comenzarán a regresar el 10 de enero. A medida que más y más estudiantes y personal regresen durante las próximas 2 semanas, algunas aulas remotas comenzarán a cerrarse. Complete la encuesta enviada por los maestros si está interesado en continuar la instrucción remota durante la semana del 10 al 14 de enero. Si tiene preguntas o inquietudes, comuníquese por correo electrónico.

Nuevas pautas para la cuarentena (por favor tenga paciencia ya que cambia a diario)

  • Si su hijo ha dado positivo en los últimos 90 días, no es necesario que esté en cuarentena.
  • Si su hijo está vacunado, no es necesario que esté en cuarentena a menos que muestre síntomas.
  • Si se le pidió a su hijo que se pusiera en cuarentena durante 10 días, puede hacerse la prueba el quinto día y regresar el séptimo día con una prueba de COVID negativa.
  • El período de cuarentena de 5 días del CDC solo se aplica a los miembros del personal completamente vacunados que dan positivo en la prueba, no a los estudiantes.

Fechas siguientes:.

  • 12 de enero: Visita virtual a la escuela a las 6:00 p.m.
  • 17 de enero: Día MLK (No hay clases)
  • 18 de enero: Comienza el Instituto Nacional de Danza para 4to grado
  • 18 de enero: Tour de la escuela a las 3 pm
  • 24 de enero: Comienza la semana del Año Nuevo Lunar
  • 27 de enero: Comienza el baile de Ajna para el 3er grado
  • 28 de enero: Viernes familiar del Año Nuevo Lunar
