January 31, 2021
Last week all of our families received a message ("News from USD") from Superintendent Denise Coleman. Based on current and trending health metrics, and in alignment with Governor Newsom's recommendations, I am excited to announce we will be offering in-person instruction for Kindergarten - 2nd beginning February 22, followed by grades 3rd - 5th beginning March 8 for those families who are interested. (These dates are contingent on meeting and sustaining certain county-wide metrics)
This past week our Kindergarten - 2nd grade families were surveyed. Third-Fifth Grade families will be surveyed in the coming week.
For more information on reopening, join Mrs. Taormina in a Principal's Coffee Friday, February 5th at 11:00 am.
To confirm your attendance, all attendees must pre-register by filling out the Google Form below. You will be sent a ZOOM link Friday morning.
