Principals Letter January 21st, 2022

January 21, 2022

Greetings, 

Now that the weather has become very cold, we have been spending more time indoors during recess. We still go outside if the weather is 32 degrees or higher so please send kids with hats and gloves. We have extra if your child needs them.  As we spend more time indoors, we also spend less time moving.  Find a time each day to get everyone at home moving.  This can include a dance party while cooking dinner, a GoNoodle video, or a 15 minute family yoga session.  There are lots of easy ways to get moving and spend time together.  As we spend more time indoors, child screen time also increases.  Have a conversation with your family and set boundaries around screen time limits.  

Upcoming Dates: 

  • Jan 24th -Class Parent Meeting @ 5:30
  • Jan 24th -Lunar New Year Week begins
  • Jan 25th -SLT Meeting @5:30
  • Jan 27th -Ajna Dance begins for 3rd grade
  • Jan. 28th -Lunar New Year Family Friday
  • Feb. 1st -No School (Lunar New Year) & Black History Month 
  • Feb. 2nd -Vision Screening (3rd, 4th, & 5th grd)
  • Feb. 7th -11th  -BLM Week
  • Feb. 9th -Vision Screening (3rd, 4th, & 5th grd)

Reminders: 

  • At home COVID tests are available for pick up from safety agents.  Just ask. 
  • Consider consenting for COVID PCR testing at the school.  It is weekly and saves you from waiting on line.  Log onto the health screening form below and go to the Consent Tab. 
  • If you have to report a student who has tested positive, please use this Form.

Saludos,

Ahora que el clima se ha vuelto muy frío, hemos estado pasando más tiempo adentro durante el recreo. Todavía salimos afuera si el clima es de 32 grados o más, así que envíe a los niños con gorros y guantes. Tenemos extra si su hijo los necesita. A medida que pasamos más tiempo en el interior, también pasamos menos tiempo en movimiento. Encuentre un momento cada día para que todos en casa se muevan. Esto puede incluir una fiesta de baile mientras prepara la cena, un video de GoNoodle o una sesión de yoga familiar de 15 minutos. Hay muchas maneras fáciles de moverse y pasar tiempo juntos. A medida que pasamos más tiempo en el interior, el tiempo de pantalla de los niños también aumenta. Tenga una conversación con su familia y establezca límites en torno a los límites de tiempo frente a la pantalla.

Fechas siguientes:.

  • 24 de enero – Reunión de padres de clase a las 5:30
  • 24 de enero: Comienza la semana del Año Nuevo Lunar
  • 25 de enero – Reunión SLT a las 5:30
  • 27 de enero -Ajna Dance comienza para 3er grado

Recordatorios: 

  • Las pruebas de COVID caseras están disponibles para que las recojan con los agentes de seguridad. Solo preguntenles.
  • Considere dar su consentimiento para la prueba PCR de COVID en la escuela. Es semanal y le ahorra tener que esperar en línea. Inicie la sesión en el formulario de evaluación de salud y vaya a donde dice Consentimiento.
  • Si tiene que informarnos de un estudiante que ha dado positivo, utilice este formulario.
