Principals Letter January 28th, 2022

January 28, 2022

Greetings, 

Happy Lunar New Year!  Wishing you great happiness and prosperity! May your year be filled with an abundance of smiles and laughter.

Next week all classes will be returning to in person instruction.  Over the last 4 weeks, we have slowly returned  in person as both our staff and student positivity rates have dropped back to November levels. By returning slowly,  we have drastically reduced exposure to community members and reduced classroom closures.  Thank you all for your patience and support.

Saludos,

¡Feliz Año Nuevo Lunar! ¡Les deseo mucha felicidad y prosperidad! Que su año esté lleno de abundancia de sonrisas y risas.

La próxima semana todas las clases volverán a la instrucción en persona. Durante las últimas 4 semanas, hemos regresado lentamente en persona, ya que las tasas de positividad de nuestros estudiantes y personal han disminuido a los niveles de noviembre. Al regresar lentamente, hemos reducido drásticamente la exposición a los miembros de la comunidad y hemos reducido el cierre de las aulas. Gracias a todos por su paciencia y apoyo.

  • Los estudiantes que den positivo pueden regresar después de 5 días si pueden usar una máscara KN95 o KF94 bien ajustada y NO tienen síntomas.

下周所有课程都将恢复到面对面教学。在过去的 4 周中,由于我们的教职员工和学生的阳性病例率均已降至 11 月的水平,因此我们已慢慢亲自返回学校。通过缓慢返回学校,我们大大减少了与社区成员的接触并减少了课堂关闭。感谢大家的耐心和支持。
