Distance Learning Updates and Announcements, May 22, 2020

A Message from Principal Ghereben

Greetings Proctor Community,

Can you believe that we only have one week of school left? I'm sure you are all anxious about finishing the school year, and desire a much needed break from Distance Learning.

The Proctor staff loved seeing our school community come out for the Family Car Parade! Thank you too all the families who decorated their cars with so many positive messages to our teachers and staff! What a positive and uplifting event to begin this holiday weekend, and the end of the school year. We loved seeing all our students' sweet faces once again!

As we begin to wrap up the school year next week, and students retrieve their belongings, your classroom teacher will include your child's Report Card. If you are unable to attend either pick-up day, your classroom teacher will email you a PDF of the report Card by Friday, May 29th, so please do your best to attend these days.

Attached to this message below, you will find a letter written by our Director of Curriculum and Instruction to our school communities informing you about a few changes to how the Trimester 3 report card will be filled out, and our reasoning behind these changes.

If you have questions after reviewing the report card next week, please contact your classroom teacher.

Thank you for your continued partnership and support throughout this Distance Learning journey. We look forward to seeing you in the 2020-21 school year.

Student Belongings' Pick-Up!

Please connect with your classroom teachers about where students' classroom belongings will be located to pick-up on the following days....

  • Tuesday, May 26th from 12:00pm to 3:00 - Families with the last names A-M

  • Wednesday, May 27th from 12:00pm to 3:00pm - Families with the last names N-Z

Also on these days:

  • 4th/5th grade families - If your child has an instrument to be returned, please drop it off in the office. If your 5th grade student will continue to take instrumental music in middle school, you can keep your instrument over the summer to practice.

  • If you checked out a Proctor Chromebook during DL, you may choose to keep it over the summer UNLESS your child WILL NOT be returning to CVUSD. All 5th grade students may also choose to keep their Chromebook over the summer TILL July, or turn it into the office on your designated day listed above.

  • Chromebook exchanges for the 2020-2021 school year will be communicated in July

  • ALL Library Books will need to returned on these days! A bin/box will be located near the door of your child's classroom, and also at the entrance of the Library door.

  • If your child has a medication being stored in the office, you will need to pick it up on these designated days. Ms. Kwan and Ms. Dugan will be in the office to handle this distribution.

As you come on campus, please practice social distancing protocols that are posted on each school entrance. Masks should be worn, and no lingering or socializing on campus will be allowed. Please do not allow your children on the playground structures while on campus.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns about these Pick-Up Days.

If you cannot attend either of these days, a future date in June will be communicated.
