Dear Families,


I hope this update finds you and your family well. Our staff is focused on making the final seven weeks of the school year the most meaningful and intentional possible for our students. We have also been strategically planning summer opportunities to address the needs of students requiring additional support to accelerate their readiness for the next school year. We appreciate the ongoing support and collaboration of our families.


Warmly,


Andrée Grey, Ed.D.

Superintendent

Overview of Summer Programs

The District will offer several summer programs this year, in addition to our regular annual summer programming. Each of these programs will serve students who qualify from all 9 school sites and will run from June 28 to July 23. TRAC (Teamwork, Regulation, Acceptance and Community) will be offered at all sites to support students’ social emotional needs. If your child is invited to a summer program, please work with our school teams to bring your child every day; this extended learning opportunity is meant to benefit our students who need additional time and support.


Extended School Year (ESY)

This is an annual summer program at Flora Vista Elementary School for students with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs), who qualify for extended school year services based on specific criteria. Families with students eligible for this program have been sent applications already. This year, the district will also be offering an afternoon BOOST program for students who qualify for ESY.


Inspire Language Academy

The English Learner Summer Academy (8:00 am - 2:00 pm) will be held at Ocean Knoll Elementary School. The program serves English language learners who meet the criteria identified by the District. Students will be engaged in our program Inspire: Building Confidence and Academic Strengths. District teachers and administrators will be in contact with individual families. Scholarships for afterschool care will be available for Boys and Girls Club.


IGNITE (Summer School)

The District’s IGNITE Summer program (8:00 am - 12:00 pm) will be held at Park Dale Lane Elementary School. This program is specifically designed for students who meet select criteria based on multiple measures in the primary grades (kindergarten through third grade, and incoming fourth through sixth grade students with IEPs) in the area of English Language Arts. District teachers and administrators will be in contact with individual families for enrollment into this program.

Right at School: Before and Afterschool Programming

We recognize the importance of quality before and after school child care programs and know families are looking forward to learning more about the Right at School organization, which will be offering programming options in the 2021-22 school year, as well as camp experiences this summer. For those of you that were unable to attend the virtual Right at School Parent Information Night on April 28, you may access the recording HERE. You can also visit the Right at School website, or contact the Right at School Area Manager, Silvia Rivera, at silvia.rivera@rightatschool.com.


Right at School will operate at all schools in the 2021-22 school year, with the exception of Capri and Ocean Knoll. Ocean Knoll families can visit the Boys & Girls Club website and Capri families can visit the YMCA website, to find information regarding programming at these sites.
