Good Afternoon Barron Park Families,


It’s hard to believe that 9 weeks have passed since we welcomed our youngest learners back on campus. Barron Park educators have been exceptional in leading your children through these complex and challenging times. Parents, thank you for your continued support. We certainly notice and appreciate how well prepared your children come to school in their cohorts and follow all health and safety protocols. In addition, we have enjoyed being with our Barron Park Bees on campus participating in positive learning experiences and having fun with friends.


The December holiday break is the mid-point in the school year, a year that certainly has no comparison. We started school back on August 14 in 100% Full Distance Learning. On October 12, 26, and November 9 we gradually welcomed 2/3 of our students back on campus through a cohort hybrid approach. We were able to create 3 Barron Park Full Distance Learning classrooms that serves 1/3 of our student population. I am grateful that we are together as a school community and that all classrooms are led by Barron Park educators.


2021 should provide us with hope and encouragement that better days will be ahead. It certainly is going to take more time for health conditions to improve so let’s continue to stay positive, supportive, and healthy. With COVID cases rising across the county and state, it continues to be very important to follow the recent Santa Clara County Public Health Orders in the days and weeks ahead. These important health orders, along with the daily health screener will help guide us to safely welcome students back on January 7.


It is likely families will travel over the holidays and quite possibly mix households.

If your family is traveling, please contact us in the office so we can review the mandated 14-day travel quarantine timeline requirements to determine your child's return to school date. We will be in the office January 6 to assist with your questions. Below are two important links from the county and state to review that will assist our efforts to keep all of us healthy and safe:


Santa Clara County Public Health MANDATORY DIRECTIVE: TRAVEL.


California Department of Public Health: Stay at Home Order


All this being said, make sure to find the time to enjoy being together as a family. The entire Barron Park Staff wishes you a healthy, safe, and relaxing holiday break.


See you in 2021!


Eric Goddard

The K/1 students have been working hard exploring our new genre, persuasive writing. Inspired to make a change in their homes, neighborhoods, community, and world, the dedicated K/1 students are writing to make their voices heard. Students have chosen to focus on a wide range of topics, such as pollution, health, the Black Lives Matter movement, equity, and so much more. Each student chose to focus on a topic that resonated with and matters to them. It's so inspiring to see the wonderful work and passion these students have put into making our world a better place to live!
