A Message from Mrs. Wall

Dear STARS Academy Family,


Reopening Playground Structures

We are excited to announce that in accordance with California Department of Public Health and the deliberations of the District’s COVID-19 Planning Team we will be placing the playground equipment back into service on April 13th with the following added conditions for safe use:

  • Hand hygiene will be performed by students before and after the use of the equipment
  • Equipment rules will be put in place to help ensure physical distance when using the equipment
  • Students will be required to wear a face mask while using the equipment
  • Face masks should be tight fitting with no loose strings that could get caught on the equipment

Our campus safety assistants will support and monitor students to ensure they are safely using the playground equipment and following all safety guidelines. We thank you for your continued support as we provide this new opportunity to our students.


Uniform Policy Announcement:

  • Starting on April 16 (the day before the Spring Fling Running Thing) every Friday will be a Spirit-wear Friday (hopefully we can come up with a better name by then). Instead of their uniforms, scholars may wear other STARS Academy spirit-wear, such as their Spring Fling Running Thing t-shirt, on Fridays! Scholars are welcome to wear their STARS gray or sapphire bright blue polo instead.


STARS STEAM Speaker Series - Disney

At the end of the month, we have a very special speaker joining us! Don't miss this chance to meet Alice Taylor, the Director of StudioLab at The Walt Disney Studios. She is responsible for ensuring that Disney continues to invest in the intersection between online tech and content distribution. A special thank you to Mr. Dayem and Mrs. Lirtsman for arranging this magical event. I can't wait!


We are in this TOGETHER!

Mrs. Wall
