State Assessment for 3rd-8th and 11th Grade May 3rd-6th

Dear Parents,

Next week we will be assessing our 3rd - 8th grade and 11th graders with the Smarter Balanced assessment either on campus or at home. We appreciate all of your support in getting students where they need to be on time, ensuring a great nights sleep and a good breakfast. We have some fun activities and snacks planned for the kids. The K - 2nd graders will be on an alternative schedule and getting music, art, ceramics and Science. As a charter, these tests are imperative to our renewal in showing that we are doing as well and even better than traditional schools. I am always so proud of how well our student do! We really appreciate your support and I look forward to our students doing their very best and showing us what they know!

Shasta County Public Health

On Monday, Public Health announced that state guidelines have expanded and people age 16 and over may now get vaccinated for free against COVID-19. You can find clinics at So far, Pfizer is the only manufacturer of COVID vaccine with approval for people age 16 and over, meaning the vaccine is safe for people this age. Parent permission is required for people under 18 years.

Why should high schoolers get vaccinated? Vaccination provides another layer of protection for high school students, along with mask wearing, physical distancing, and hand washing. COVID-19 variants can be more contagious, and they are becoming more common just as we’re returning to more in-person activities. Some youth who test positive for COVID-19 have been struggling with “long-haul” COVID, with symptoms lasting for weeks or even months. Another benefit to vaccination is that students who are vaccinated will not be asked to quarantine at home if they are identified as a close contact. Instead, they’ll be allowed to continue with in-person learning and extracurricular activities.

Expanding vaccination eligibility to older students is great news. Adding a vaccination to the prevention measures high schoolers are already taking can help keep our COVID cases low as we begin to look forward to year-end events, including graduation.

Beating COVID is a team effort. Let’s all do our part. Learn more about local COVID-19 response at
