A LETTER FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Happy April Falcon Families!


I hope you all had a great Spring Break and time to enjoy the sunshine! This newsletter will be full of information about hybrid, upcoming events, and some helpful links.


Before we get too far into information about hybrid, I wanted to give a big shout out to Noura Al-Qara, one of our incredible Five Oaks 7th grade students! She had a piece of art published in the Winter edition of PCC Magazine. Her piece is on page 25, check it out here. We are so proud of you Noura! Keep up the great work!


Thursday April 8 beginning at 6 pm, we have two QPR sessions. QPR stands for Question, Persuade, Refer, and is a tool parents can use to talk to their students about suicide and depression. We understand this can be an uncomfortable topic, but it is great information to have if you ever need it. We are running two sessions concurrently:


Virtual Outdoor School starts next week for some of our students and continues the following week for others! Please connect with your students teachers, and have your student check Canvas for the schedule and links. We are so excited to get to participate in Outdoor School, even if it’s virtual this year. If you have a 6th or 7th grade student who hasn’t picked up their Outdoor School supplies yet, please do so ASAP!


March 19, emails went to families who had opted to send their students back for hybrid learning indicating what attendance group your student is in.

  • Attendance group 1 means students will attend in person Monday and Thursday starting April 19.

  • Attendance group 2 means students will attend in person Tuesday and Friday starting April 20.

  • All other days students will be in CDL.

  • Wednesdays will be mostly asynchronous except for Advisory which will meet at it’s usual time via zoom.


Families whose students will be riding the bus should receive information from transportation, however, you can also go to the district website (follow the link below) to find the most updated transportation information.


For all students and families:

  • The daily schedule is going to look different. It’s very important to look at start and end times for classes.

  • Lunch will no longer be from 11-12 every day starting April 19.

  • Teachers will be teaching to both in person and CDL students at the same time, so patience, especially in the beginning of this transition will be key!

  • All students will be CDL students a minimum of 3 days a week (including Wednesday).


For CDL students:

  • Logging on to your class at the start time will be very important.

  • It will be a good idea to remind yourself where the “raise hand” function and other reaction buttons are and practice using them before April 19.

  • We are committed to ensuring you have access to the activities students who are in person have access to. It will be important to keep up on messages from teachers about items that may need to be picked up.

  • You will still be able to request and pick up books from the library.

  • Meals will be available for pick up on Wednesdays only starting the week of April 19. You’ll get an entire week’s worth at a time.


For Hybrid students:

  • Masks will be required all the time. The only exception is for eating or drinking.

  • There will be no eating in classrooms, but you can have a water bottle at your desk (we can provide one if needed).

  • Drinking fountains won’t be available, but we do have filtered water bottle filling stations for students to use.

  • Restrooms are assigned by grade level. Rachel Carson students will access the 6th grade restrooms. Only one person per room will be out at a time.

  • Students will stay in their room and teachers will move to students except for Band, Drama, PE and a few sections of Encore.

  • Please bring your chromebook already charged and bring your charger with you just in case.

  • You will have a container provided to keep things in at school. You can also bring a backpack. The backpack will have to stay by you in class as we won’t be using lockers.

  • Lunch will be provided for free to all students. If you choose to bring a lunch from home please remember that reusable containers and lunch boxes are your responsibility to keep track of at all times.

  • There will be outside time at lunch. We will have designated areas and equipment for students. This will be sanitized in between lunches and students will have to sanitize their hands before going back inside.

  • Teachers will have access to outside areas during the day to allow students to get fresh air and stretch their legs.


There is so much to absorb with hybrid and the changes coming our way. Each session will include time for a presentation followed by a Q/A. We have scheduled a parent information session and two student sessions as follows:








¡Feliz mes de Abril familias Falcon!


¡Espero que hayan tenido unas excelentes vacaciones de primavera y tiempo para disfrutar del sol! Este boletín estará lleno de información sobre híbridos, próximos eventos y algunos enlaces útiles.


Antes de profundizar demasiado en la información sobre híbridos, quería dar un gran saludo a Noura Al-Qara, ¡una de nuestras increíbles estudiantes de séptimo grado de Five Oaks! Publicó una obra de arte en la edición de invierno de PCC Magazine. Su artículo está en la página 25, míralo aquí. ¡Estamos muy orgullosos de ti Noura! ¡Mantener el buen trabajo!


El jueves 8 de abril a partir de las 6 pm, tenemos dos sesiones de QPR. QPR son las siglas de Question, Persude, Refer, y es una herramienta que los padres pueden usar para hablar con sus estudiantes sobre el suicidio y la depresión. Entendemos que este puede ser un tema incómodo, pero es una gran información para tener si alguna vez la necesita. Estamos ejecutando dos sesiones al mismo tiempo:

¡La Escuela Virtual al Aire Libre comienza la próxima semana para algunos de nuestros estudiantes y continúa la semana siguiente para otros! Por favor conéctese con los maestros de sus estudiantes y pídale a su estudiante que revise Canvas para ver el horario y los enlaces. Estamos muy emocionados de poder participar en Outdoor School, incluso si es virtual este año. Si tiene un estudiante de sexto o séptimo grado que aún no ha recogido sus útiles escolares al aire libre, ¡hágalo lo antes posible!


El 19 de marzo, los correos electrónicos se enviaron a las familias que habían optado por enviar a sus estudiantes de regreso para el aprendizaje híbrido indicando en qué grupo de asistencia se encuentra su estudiante.

  • El grupo de asistencia 1 significa que los estudiantes asistirán en persona los lunes y jueves a partir del 19 de abril.

  • El grupo de asistencia 2 significa que los estudiantes asistirán en persona los martes y viernes a partir del 20 de abril.

  • Todos los demás días los estudiantes estarán en CDL.

  • Los miércoles serán en su mayoría asíncronos, a excepción de Advisory, que se reunirá a la hora habitual a través del zoom.


Las familias cuyos estudiantes viajarán en el autobús deben recibir información sobre el transporte, sin embargo, también puede visitar el sitio web del distrito (siga el enlace a continuación) para encontrar la información de transporte más actualizada.


Para todos los estudiantes y familias:

  • El horario diario se verá diferente. Es muy importante tener en cuenta las horas de inicio y finalización de las clases.

  • El almuerzo ya no será de 11 a 12 todos los días a partir del 19 de abril.

  • Los maestros enseñarán tanto a los estudiantes en persona como a los estudiantes de CDL al mismo tiempo, por lo que la paciencia, especialmente al comienzo de esta transición, será clave.

  • Todos los estudiantes serán estudiantes de CDL un mínimo de 3 días a la semana (incluido el miércoles).


Para estudiantes CDL:

  • Iniciar sesión en su clase a la hora de inicio será muy importante.

  • Será una buena idea recordar dónde están la función de "levantar la mano" y otros botones de reacción y practicar su uso antes del 19 de abril.

  • Nos comprometemos a garantizar que tenga acceso a las actividades a las que tienen acceso los estudiantes que están en persona. Será importante mantenerse al día con los mensajes de los maestros sobre los artículos que pueden necesitar ser recogidos.

  • Aún podrá solicitar y recoger libros de la biblioteca.

  • Las comidas estarán disponibles para recoger los miércoles solo a partir de la semana del 19 de abril. Obtendrá la cantidad de una semana completa a la vez.


Para estudiantes híbridos:

  • Se requerirán máscaras todo el tiempo. La única excepción es para comer o beber.

  • No habrá comida en las aulas, pero puede tener una botella de agua en su escritorio (podemos proporcionar una si es necesario).

  • No habrá bebederos disponibles, pero tenemos estaciones de llenado de botellas de agua filtrada para que las usen los estudiantes.

  • Los baños se asignan por nivel de grado. Los estudiantes de Rachel Carson accederán a los baños de sexto grado. Solo saldrá una persona por clase a la vez.

  • Los estudiantes permanecerán en su salón y los maestros se trasladarán a los estudiantes excepto para Banda, Teatro, Educación Física y algunas secciones de Encore.

  • Traiga su Chromebook ya cargada y su cargador por si acaso.

  • Se le proporcionará un recipiente para guardar las cosas en la escuela. También puedes traer mochila. La mochila deberá permanecer junto a ti en clase, ya que no usaremos casilleros.

  • Se proporcionará almuerzo gratis a todos los estudiantes. Si elige traer un almuerzo de casa, recuerde que los recipientes reutilizables y las loncheras son su responsabilidad de mantener un registro en todo momento.

  • Habrá tiempo al aire libre durante el almuerzo. Tendremos áreas designadas y equipo para los estudiantes. Esto se desinfectará entre los almuerzos y los estudiantes deberán desinfectarse las manos antes de volver a entrar.

  • Los maestros tendrán acceso a áreas exteriores durante el día para permitir que los estudiantes tomen aire fresco y estiren las piernas.


Hay mucho que absorber con el programa híbrido y los cambios que se avecinan. Cada sesión incluirá tiempo para una presentación seguida de una sesión de preguntas y respuestas. Hemos programado una sesión de información para padres y dos sesiones para estudiantes de la siguiente manera:

Words From FO/RC Library

Are you on the Hybrid plan? Staying Home for CDL? We’ve got library books for YOU!

We still can’t have large groups in the library for browsing books, but that doesn’t mean Mrs. Zomerman can’t bring the books to you!


Hybrid learners will see books out at lunch-time and Mrs. Zomerman can take requests to deliver later that day.


Remaining at home for remote learning? Don’t let that stop you from checking out library books. Request your books in the Destiny Library Catalog and Mrs. Zomerman will contact you for best way to receive your reads.

Dear BSD Families,

The start of In-Person Hybrid Instruction is right around the corner, and our Nutrition Services department has been hard at work developing a plan for how to continue to provide free meals for all children during both Hybrid and CDL. The USDA has provided waivers for the rest of the school year that allow any child (ages 1-18) to access free meals.

Starting April 5, meal service via bus routes will be discontinued.

If you attend Hybrid Elementary School:

● Hybrid students can receive a free daily meal bag to take home.

● Two days of meals will be sent home on Tuesday.

● No registration is required.

If you attend Hybrid Middle School:

● Hybrid students can eat lunch for free at school on the days that they attend in-person instruction.

● Free meal bags with breakfasts, lunches, and supper snacks will be available for students to take home at the end of their in-person school day to cover days they attend school from home and/or asynchronously.
