Hello SVDP Community,
With the help of the 4th grade, Mrs. Bruno, Ms. Jenks, and Father Roy, we hosted Ash Wednesday mass via livestream and embarked on our Lenten journey.
STAR test results are being sent home with your students today (on Monday for 7/8 Cohort A). The 2nd trimester is coming to an end on Friday, February 26th, and report cards will be received on March 5th (K -2 will get paper copies sent home with their student; 3 - 8 parents will receive an email to view the report card digitally).
Sister Dulce will be taking a leave of absence in the third trimester. We hold her and her family in our hearts and prayers and ask you to do the same. Stay tuned for more information on how we will keep foreign language in our curriculum during her absence.
This newsletter includes information about our 3rd trimester plan, Easter Break, Parent Guild activities, and more! Keep reading.
The big news is that K - 8 will be on campus five days a week (still under a modified day schedule). Again, this will begin on March 1st.
EASTER BREAK - TEMPORARY WAIVER OF DISTANCE LEARNING PROTOCOL
Students utilizing this exception are expected to be in-person beginning April 19th. Students not in person on April 19th will not be allowed to distance learn.To return to campus on April 19th (or later if arrival home is after April 8th), your student must have completed the 10-day quarantine and provide negative COVID test results from a test administered approximately seven days after their return home. Test results should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Distance vs. in-person learning requires additional planning on the part of the teachers. If you plan to travel, please complete this quick questionnaire (click link or use the button below). This information will be distributed to the teachers so they know how many students to plan for in-person and via Zoom. If you are traveling, your responses are due March 19th to allow our teachers an appropriate amount of time to plan.

SAN FRANCISCO TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS
On December 17, 2020 a Health Officer Travel Order was issued that 1) instituted a mandatory quarantine of 10 days for anyone traveling, moving, or returning to San Francisco from anywhere outside the Bay Area with limited exceptions and 2) strongly discourages any non-essential travel within the 10-county Bay Area region.
This includes travel outside the following counties: San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda, Contra Costa, Solano, Sonoma, Napa, Marin and Santa Cruz

This requirement allows exemptions for medical professionals, first responders, official government business, and essential infrastructure work who must travel to perform their work. A limited number of other activities are also exempted including travel to receive medical care or travel required by a court order, like transferring custody of a child. People transiting through San Francisco International Airport on connecting flights and not staying overnight in San Francisco are not required to quarantine.
