Principals Letter October 15th, 2021

October 15, 2021

Greetings, 

On Wednesday there was an incident in the yard between 2 adults that involved a fist fight.  While there are many versions of this story that have circulated throughout our community, these adults were not students or staff members of P2 20. We are thankful to the parents who intervened to instill calm and asked one of the adults to leave. Based on community feedback, and to ensure safety during dismissal, we have changed dismissal protocols for 1st thru 5th grade families. We also have had a larger presence of school safety officers at dismissal. 

We are currently creating a morning enrichment program for students who either need early drop off or would like to participate in early morning programming. This will begin the week of October 25th.  Please fill out this survey to express interest: https://forms.gle/gZkJEMN7Pzg9j6tv8

An additional morning and afterschool intervention program is being created to support students with more specific academic needs. Some families will receive a separate invitation to join a more rigorous academic program. All students receiving special education services and English as a New Language services will be eligible. 

Upcoming Dates: 

  • Oct. 18th -First Class Parent Meeting @ 5:30pm: Zoom Link 
  • Oct. 25th -Morning Enrichment begins
  • Oct. 25th-Spirit Week begins 
  • Oct. 25th -Picture Day

Saludos,

El miércoles hubo un incidente en el patio entre 2 adultos que involucró una pelea a golpes. Aunque hay muchas versiones de esta historia que han circulado por toda nuestra comunidad, estos adultos no eran estudiantes ni miembros del personal de P2 20. Agradecemos a los padres que intervinieron para traer calma y le pidieron a uno de los adultos que se fuera. Basado en los comentarios de la comunidad y para garantizar la seguridad durante la salida, hemos cambiado los protocolos de salida para las familias de 1º a 5º grado. También hemos tenido una mayor presencia de oficiales de seguridad escolar a la salida.

Actualmente estamos creando un programa de enriquecimiento matutino para los estudiantes que necesitan dejarlos temprano o les gustaría participar en la programación matutina. Esto comenzará la semana del 25 de octubre. Complete esta encuesta para expresar su interés: https://forms.gle/gZkJEMN7Pzg9j6tv8

Se está creando un programa adicional de intervención matutino y extracurricular para apoyar a los estudiantes con necesidades académicas más específicas. Algunas familias recibirán una invitación por separado para unirse a un programa académico más riguroso. Todos los estudiantes que reciben servicios de educación especial y servicios de inglés como nuevo idioma serán elegibles.

Fechas siguientes:

  • 18 de octubre – la  primera reunión de “CLASS PARENTS” a las 5:30 pm Enlace de zoom

您好,

周三,院子里发生了 2 名成年人之间发生拳头打架的事件。虽然这个故事在我们的社区中流传着很多版本,但这些成年人不是 P2 20 的学生或工作人员。我们感谢父母的干预,让他们保持冷静,并要求其中一名成年人离开。根据社区反馈,并为确保开学期间大家的安全,我们更改了 1 至 5 年级家庭的放学协议。我们在放学时也有更多的学校安全官员在场。

我们目前正在为需要早来或想参加早晨节目的学生创建一个早晨课计划。这将从 10 月 25 日那一周开始。请填写此调查表以表达兴趣:https://forms.gle/gZkJEMN7Pzg9j6tv8

正在创建一个额外的早晨和课后干预计划,以支持有更具体学术需求的学生。一些家庭将收到单独的邀请,以加入更严格的学术课程。所有接受特殊教育服务和英语作为新语言服务的学生都有资格。

即将举行的活动:

  • 10 月 18 日下午5:30 – 第一届家长会 Zoom 链接
  • 10 月 25 日-精神周开始
