All the important deets to stay in the know!

May It Be of Benefit

Hello Families,

What a rollercoaster these last few weeks (dare I say months) have been! At the time of this writing, the district has made the decision to move to "Phase 1" which is Distance Learning for All when we reopen this week. Our first day of school is still planned for Wednesday, August 12th, but students will be learning through our new and more robust Distance Learning model. Details regarding that model will be shared in a variety of ways including articles, instructions, and links in segments of this newsletter. Additionally, teachers will share their class plans with the students and families who are on their rosters in the coming days, and I can bet you will hear more from Superintendent Winstead and/or Assistant Superintendent Armelino via video message in the future. Though this is not the start to our 20/21 school year that we'd hoped for, the Shasta Meadows staff and I are working very hard to make this a year of learning and growing for our students.

Please check your PowerSchool Parent Portal to find out which class your child is enrolled in. You will be hearing from them on or before Wednesday the 12th. If you cannot check the portal, you can call the school M-F 7 am to 4 pm and ask for assistance with that process and you can visit the school to check the cafe windows or the wall outside room 14 (Gym parking lot) to view a list of students and classes.

Wring every bit of fun out of this last weekend before school starts and we will contact you this week.

With gratitude,

Mrs. Gold

EESD Distance Learning Reopening Plan

I have posted our district's reopening plan previously, but it has been updated and is a good resource for your questions. Here is a link to the latest edition of the EESD Reopening Plan.

Office Reopening Procedures

Our school office is now open every weekday from 7 am to 4 pm. In accordance with health department recommendations, our door is locked. Please call from your car and speak with office personnel. They will speak with you, and if you do need to come in, they will meet you at the door and let you in. Please follow social distancing practices and remain 6 feet apart while waiting to enter the office and wear a face mask.
