Minutos de Mrs. Hutchins

Hello Fronteras Families!

We’ve had a great couple of weeks! Thank you so much for the continued support of our outdoor PE classes! We love that so many folks are willing to volunteer their time to help keep our students active and safe!

While we continue to navigate through this quarter, we are so grateful for everyone’s patience and flexibility when we’ve had students needing to rotate to At Home learning for a period of time! We are so grateful for your support and understanding! We are a fortunate school to be working with such incredible families! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

As we approach Thanksgiving, it is my tradition to share the words of my favorite song, “Thankful” by Josh Groban. To get the full effect, you need to listen to Josh sing the lyrics, but truly, it’s the words that are so beautiful. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!


“Thankful”

Somedays, we forget to look around us

Somedays, we can't see the joy that surrounds us

So caught up inside ourselves

We take when we should give

So for tonight we pray for

What we know can be

And on this day we hope for

What we still can't see

It's up to us, to be the change

And even though we all can still do more

There's so much to be thankful for

Look beyond ourselves

There's so much sorrow

It's way too late to say, I'll cry tomorrow

Each of us must find our truth

It's so long overdue

So for tonight we pray for

What we know can be

And everyday, we hope for

What we still can't see

It's up to us, to be the change

And even though we all can still do more

There's so much to be thankful for

Even with our differences

There is a place we're all connected

Each of us can find each others light

So for tonight, we pray for

What we know can be

And on this day, we hope for

What we still can't see

It's up to us, to be the change

And even though this world needs so much more

There's so much to be thankful for


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Most Sincerely,

Mrs. Hutchins

Clarification of COVID Symptoms and Time at Home

There have been some questions about how long a student is required to stay home when a parent self-reports their child has a symptom from the COVID symptom list. When a student has a COVID symptom, they can come back when they receive a negative test result, are home for 10 days and symptom free for 24 hours without being on fever reducing medicine, or get a doctor’s note that it is not COVID related. This is true if they are screened at school or by a parent at home.

Morning Drop-Off Safety Requirements!

  • PARENTS MUST STAY WITH THEIR CHILD UNTIL 7:45AM
  • Please pull ALL THE WAY forward in the drop-off line regardless of where your child enters the school
  • The school sidewalk is a drop-off zone only, please do not get out of your vehicle
  • The school sidewalk is a drop-off zone only, please make sure your child is ready and can exit your vehicle independently
  • Please have all of your children exit your vehicle on the sidewalk side only and not on the traffic side or on the rocks by the playground
  • If your child requires assistance to exit your vehicle, please park in the parking lot to assist them
  • After your child has exited your vehicle, please signal and pull into the left exit lane
  • Please drive slowly and be aware at all times while on Fronteras campus
  • If you don't see Miss Shawn standing at the first corner of the sidewalk for 2nd-4th grade entry; please drop your child at the front doors so they can collect a tardy slip at the office
