Important Information and Updates

Things are changing every day in our school, city, state, and country. We want to ensure parents, guardians, and students are kept up to date on the latest information. I hope that you will take a few minutes to read through each section and know that OFL is doing everything it can to continue to provide education to our students. While we transition to a distance learning format for the next few weeks, we hope you will have patience as we navigate the challenges and obstacles we may face during this period.

Dear OFL Families

March 20, 2020

As the week winds down, we wanted to remind you of a few important notes related to OFL’s transition to distance learning as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

You should be picking up curriculum and other materials from your child’s campus this week in preparation for remote learning for the next 30 days. Please contact your child’s teacher as soon as possible to arrange pick-up if you have not already scheduled an appointment. OFL campuses will have minimal crews on-site, if any, starting next week and, heeding the advice of public health experts, student/family drop-in’s will be discouraged as a safety precaution.

We encourage you to help your child prepare a space at home for productive learning. If you missed our last email with tips and strategies to ensure online success, you can view it here. While many of us are finding ourselves feeling isolated, it’s important to remember that we are a community and connection is key. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to OFL teachers and staff for help and guidance as your child adjusts to working from home. We’re here for you, and the wellness of your family is of paramount importance to us.

We would also like to remind you that there are still no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at OFL. We will continue to monitor the situation in our California communities, and remain connected to local health officials for additional guidance in keeping students, families, staff, and local residents healthy. As always, we will also continue to keep you informed of changes as they unfold. If you don’t already follow us on social media, please do so. This is another great way to stay abreast of any changes.

We wish you a safe weekend. Amid the unrest and while you make adjustments to school, work, and family time, we hope you’ll take a moment or two to remember how much love and support surrounds you.

Estimadas familias de OFL,

A medida que termina la semana, queremos recordarle algunas notas importantes relacionadas con la transición de OFL al aprendizaje en línea debido a la pandemia de COVID-19.

Deberá recoger el plan de estudios y otros materiales del centro de su hijo esta semana en preparación para el aprendizaje en línea durante los siguientes 30 días. Comuníquese con el maestro de su hijo lo antes posible para agendar una hora para recoger los materiales si aún no hecho una cita. Los centros de OFL tendrán personal mínimo, si alguno, a partir de la semana que viene y, siguiendo los consejos de expertos en salud pública, desalentamos visitas de estudiantes / familiares como precaución de seguridad.

Lo invitamos a ayudar a su hijo a preparar un espacio en casa para aprendizaje productivo. Si se perdió nuestro último correo electrónico con consejos y estrategias para garantizar el éxito en línea, puede verlo aquí. Aunque muchos de nosotros nos sentimos aislados, es importante recordar que somos una comunidad y que mantenernos conectados es clave. No dude en comunicarse con los maestros y el personal de OFL para obtener ayuda y orientación mientras su hijo se adapta a trabajar desde casa. Estamos aquí para usted, y el bienestar de su familia es de suma importancia para nosotros.

También nos gustaría recordarle que todavía no hay casos confirmados de COVID-19 en OFL. Continuaremos supervisando la situación en nuestras comunidades de California y nos mantendremos conectados con los funcionarios de salud locales para obtener instrucción adicional para mantener saludables a los estudiantes, las familias, el personal y los residentes locales. Como siempre, continuaremos manteniéndolo informado de los cambios a medida que se desarrollen. Si aún no nos sigue en las redes sociales, le invitamos a que lo haga. Esta es otra excelente manera de estar al tanto de cualquier cambio.

Le deseamos un fin de semana seguro. Durante esta situación difícil, mientras hace ajustes a la escuela, el trabajo y el tiempo entre familia, esperamos se tome un momento para recordar cuánto amor y apoyo le rodea.
