Message from Principal Emily
Dear Hooker Oak Families
I would like to personally thank all of you for supporting Chico Unified School District and Hooker Oak School these past months. Your feedback, sharing ideas, and advocating for your children has helped us do better in these difficult times. As we are currently planning for school when we return from Winter Break we are working on resolving two issues. First, we have increasing numbers of students re-enroll for in-person instruction. Second, we are planning to no longer offer a “Third Option” for student attendance. The “Third Option” had students watching a class session via Zoom while the teacher was teaching a group of students in person. We received significant feedback that this option was not providing a quality learning experience for students. At Hooker Oak, we had 4 classrooms offering a "Third Option."
As some of the re-enrolled students and “Third Option” students are transitioned back to in-person or Zoom exclusive learning classes, it may necessitate some class changes. We are doing everything possible to minimize any impact to as many families as possible. If there is any impact to your child, you can expect to receive a phone call from Principal Emily. We apologize for any frustrations caused.
Thank you for your patience and flexibility.
