Parents, Guardians, and Students:
The school year has come to an end in a way no one could imagine a few months ago. In adversity, we found families and teachers performing heroic work. We realize online learning can never replace the rich relationships we form from in-person learning. I appreciate all the efforts from our entire staff during this transition and the continued support throughout this trying time.
Congratulations to our Class of 2020 graduating seniors. You have endured through this all. We are continuing to honor your request for a ‘traditional’ graduation ceremony. We are proud of your grit and perseverance through this. Conquer your dreams! You continue to be in our thoughts and we are working on plans based on your feedback for a celebration in your honor.
The district has a few retiring staff that we also want to extend a huge thank you to. Robin Bush and Barb Manzanares will be retiring this year. We wish them the best and hope they aren’t strangers. Your work and dedication to the students, district, and community is appreciated more than you know. You will be missed!
Over the summer, we will be deep cleaning our school and facilities. Our custodial staff will follow best practices and equipment recommendations for cleaning and sanitation. We will also be allowing sports teams to use the gym with a strict set of guidelines that must be followed. We will continue to monitor state and county guidelines and update our procedures throughout the summer as needed.
While we are planning to be in school this coming fall, we are considering and planning for various scenarios. Additional plans will be based on public health requirements to ensure safety for our students and staff. With the COVID pandemic, we do have a delay in moving into our new building. Currently, we hope to move in during the month of October which will modify our student calendar. As a date gets confirmed, details will be sent to all parents. CDE is working on providing us some guidance as we will have some changes we will need to implement. Things we are working on for next school year include a registration day on Tuesday, August 4th, students first day back will be Monday, August 17th. Our hope and desire is to go back to what we knew before COVID 19 to the extent possible. But, we also know that masks and additional procedures will become part of our new normal.
The end of the year is always an emotional time for students and staff. This year is even more of a challenge as we say goodbye. Bringing closure with social distancing makes this even harder. Take care, stay healthy, and enjoy your summer. We look forward to seeing you in the fall!
