Cordelia Hills Update

3/9/2020

Principals Message

Good morning to you all! As the state and local governments work to meet the challenges of COVID-19, our school and District will continue to work with Solano County Public Health on our response. Currently, we anticipate staying open and will work to update you if anything changes. A few notes:


1. Please encourage your children to wash hands. We are encouraging them and giving them time but reminders never hurts. Students are allowed to bring personal alcohol-based hand sanitizers and can carry them at school.


2. We have had increase of inappropriate, mean-spirited comments, and even prejudice comments related to the virus. We are speaking to our students in class and ask that you do the same. Spreading fear based in racism, prejudice, and hatred has no place on our campus.


3. Please communicate with Karen in the main office if your child is ill.

Report Card Conference Days

Wednesday, March 11-Friday March 13th are minimum days for report card conferences. Students will have a small lunch break during the day and hot lunch service will be available during the school day.

Report Card Information

Parents will be able to view report cards on illuminate on March 11, 2020. Please look closely at your child's first trimester report card compared to his/her second trimester report card. If your child met the end of the year standard for (RQC), then your child did not have to be tested for second trimester. What is RQC and why do we use it? RQC stands for (Reading Quick Check). RQC is an ongoing diagnostic assessment for a quick analysis of a students strengths, needs and next steps for instruction.

Traffic Reminders

Please remember that we ask that you avoid blocking the drop off/pick-up zone along the front curb. Blocking includes getting out of your vehicle, leaving the vehicle unattended, and not moving up to the farthest point forward. Lastly, please remember to slow down and to use the crosswalks. It is clearly a stressful 15-20 minutes but student and staff safety is of paramount importance to us. Thanks!

Independent Study Reminder

We've had some questions around independent study. The primary decision to approve short term independent study is made by classroom teachers. It is not an automatic approval and we do have some teachers who do not approve independent study. I know this can be stressful for families but I wanted to make sure all families were aware that it wasn't automatic approval.


Again, to apply for independent study, please email/call Karen Latora in the main office. We appreciate you reaching out at least two weeks in advance, if not earlier.

Registration for 2020-2021

Registration for the 2020-2021 school year for any new student eligible to attend Cordelia Hills next school year is underway.. The online registration was live last Monday. You must complete that before coming in. Please know that we will have plenty of spaces open (at least through May). Don't feel like you have to come the VERY FIRST DAY of registration at risk of losing space. Lastly, we are open for registration from 9-2 each day. If you need to register outside of that window, please contact the main office and request an appointment.
