Meet Mrs. Sandoval

Hello Reading Elementary!

My name is Cristian Sandoval but I like to be called Cristy. I am the new Head Custodian here. I am from Mexico. Before coming to Reading I was the Assistant Head Custodian at West Point Junior High. This is my first chance to be a Head Custodian. I enjoy working around kids and I really love my job helping at the school. I'm gratefull for this opportunity to work here with such wonderful people. As some of you may have noticed I'm pregnant. I'm expecting my first baby and I'm super excited and happy to be a mom. When I am not at work I like to listen to music, go swimming and play volleyball in my free time. I also like to walk and go outside to enjoy nature. I love to travel and spend time with my family. My favorite food is seafood but I like all kinds of food.

BOARD VOTES TO CHANGE ELEMENTARY SCHEDULE TO FOUR DAYS OF IN-PERSON LEARNING, KEEP SECONDARY IN HYBRID

The Board of Education of the Davis School District voted Wednesday evening to move ahead with its earlier decision to have elementary school students return to school for four days of in-person, face-to-face instruction. That four-day Monday through Thursday schedule will begin Monday, Sept. 28, for elementary school students.


The board decided that junior high and high school students will remain on a hybrid schedule — in which students receive two days of face-to-face in-person instruction and three days of remote learning — until the beginning of the second term on Nov. 2. Fridays will be limited remote-learning days and teacher preparation days for all students.That said, the school board will also continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 and may make further adjustments in the future.


The board previously decided on Sept. 15 to return all students to a schedule of four days of in-person instruction and one day of remote learning. After the number of COVID-19 cases rose in secondary schools and after receiving feedback from students, parents and teachers, the board decided to keep secondary students on the hybrid schedule through the end of the first term. Board of Education Vice President Liz Mumford said, “We recognize the ongoing challenges for students, families and educators. The board is committed to continuously reviewing new data and mitigating safety risks as students come back to school. “We all have a shared responsibility as a community to getting to Nov. 2 and having our cases low enough to get our students back in school," she said. "We share a commitment with our community to make choices that will get us to full opening. We are all in this together.”

Help Keep Wranglers Safe at School - donation drive through October 9

I am Kate Robinson, a parent at Reading Elementary. Thank you for being supportive of our school and the students and staff members. We are part of an effort to collect PPE items that will be used to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as we return back to classes four days each week. We want to thank our teachers, faculty, and staff by helping them know we are here for them and will do what we can to help make this transition easier and safer for everyone.


Before school each day from Monday until October 9th, we will be collecting Lysol/Clorox wipes, gel hand sanitizers, extra cloth masks, paper towels, Lysol spray, and other items that can be safely used to keep germs away. I will be out front of the school with a box for parents and students to put donations. Please help us get word out. We are so grateful for everyone in this challenging time. Thanks again to Reading staff for your continued service and love for our children during these times. Know you are loved and appreciated.
