Message from the Principal

Buenas noches familias de Barbieri,


I hope that you are all staying warm this evening. The administrative team is excited to welcome all of our teachers tomorrow (at a safe distance of course). I acknowledge some of the fear and anxiety that is floating around due to the fact that this pandemic is not over. But I want to reassure everyone that our custodial staff, office staff and administrative team has done everything to prepare for their return. Our school is equipped with hand sanitizer, wipes, air filters, window screens, masks, gloves, etc. to reduce the spread of COVID-19 within the building. Now its our turn to do our part!


  • We MUST remain in our spaces as much as we can and we must NOT congregate (call, video call, text or email)
  • We MUST practice frequent hand washing and wiping areas before and after use.
  • We MUST WEAR A MASK AT ALL TIMES


Our first day back will not be perfect due to the many changes, but we will work together to support one another and stay healthy!



Como siempre con muchísimo aprecio por todo su apoyo durante estos tiempos difíciles!


GRACIAS!!!!!

Maria

BLACK HISTORY MONTH CELEBRATION

Please view this beautiful project that our Social Emotional Learning team in collaboration with Vice Principal Mandes created for out teachers to share with our students. I am proud to say that Vice Principal Mandes shared Barbieri's project with district administrators, senior leaders and superintendents and they all responded with positive messages. I feel inclined to share this one with our Barbieri Families:


"I've never seen something like this in my life and I wish I had as a kid. Seeing this calendar brought a tear to my eyes."


This was shared by one of the calendar participants.


THANK YOU to our team for their work, dedication and commitment in ensuring this month did not go unrecognized by our school, district and community!
