Weather Changes with In-person Learning

It looks like we'll have cooler temperatures and some much-needed rain this week. Classroom doors and windows will remain open, so if your children are on campus you'll want to make sure that they have warm clothing and rain gear. Students will still go outside for breaks and P.E. in the mild to moderate rain.

County Travel Restrictions Changed to Recommendation

Now that Santa Clara County has moved to the Red Tier, they have changed the travel restriction to a recommendation. While travel over 150 miles is still discouraged, there will no longer be a quarantine needed for people who travel further than 150 miles. If your child has been quarantining due to travel restrictions, please contact our office about returning to in-person learning at school.
