School Reopening Pushed to March 1st, 2020

Principal's Message

Dear Jackie Robinson K-8 Community,


I can not believe that January is coming to an end. It feels as if we just returned from our Winter Break. Thank you to the almost 50 parents that joined me during my Principal Zoom meeting last week. It is always a pleasure to be with you.


Here are some announcements for the week:


1. Middle School Asynchronous Day- This Wednesday, January 27, there will be no Zoom sessions for Middle School students due to a district teacher planning day. Please be sure to complete online asynchronous assignments in order to be marked present for attendance.


2. BOSS Showcase (See flyer below)- This Friday, Jan. 29, from 9:00-12:00 noon all middle school boys are invited to attend the online BOSS Showcase, a virtual field trip. The BOSS Progam is a free, long term mentoring program designed to equip boys, especially boys of color, with the tools to succeed. Email Mr. Madrigal if your child registers to attend, so that you will be marked present for attendance during those periods.


3. GREAT KINDNESS CHALLENGE WEEK- January 25-January 29. Our state Department of Education, along with the Great Kindness Challenge/Kids for Peace, encourages all of our classes to participate in this week’s anti-bullying initiative by creating a culture of kindness.

4. Middle School Minimum Days- Due to teacher professional development/planning sessions, our middle school students will have minimum day schedule with 1:00 dismissal each Wednesday and Thursday in February. Schedule:

5. One Week Left Before Final Grades are due

Be sure to ask your children to stay focused and complete all the assignments provided. If they have any pending assignments, make sure they contact their teachers before it is too late.


6. Vaccinations for LBUSD Staff

Educators will be eligible to start taking the Covid-19 vaccination starting on 1/25/21. This brings us a step closer to overall plans to be able to reopen schools in the near future.


7. Reopening Plan Parent Survey

Our District sent out a survey to all parents this past week seeking information regarding their interest in having their children attend in person instruction when it is allowable to do so. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey as it will provide us meaningful information as we start making necessary changes for in-person instruction in the near future.


Thanks again for all of your support to keep our students connected!


With appreciation for all of your support,


Salvador Madrigal

Principal

Estimadas familias de Robinson K-8 Academy,

Estimada comunidad de Jackie Robinson K-8,


No puedo creer que enero esté llegando a su fin. Se siente como si acabáramos de regresar de nuestras vacaciones de invierno. Les agradesco a los casi 50 padres/madres que me pudieron acompanar durante la Junta de Zoom con el Director. Siempre es un placer poder convivir con ustedes.


Aquí hay algunos anuncios para la semana:


1. Día asincrónico de la escuela intermedia - Este miércoles 27 de enero, no habrá sesiones de Zoom para los estudiantes de la escuela intermedia (Middle School) debido a un día de planificación de maestros del distrito. Asegúrese de completar las asignaciones asincrónicas en línea para estar marcado como presente para asistir.


2. BOSS Showcase (vea el volante a continuación) - Este viernes 29 de enero, de 9:00-12: 00 del mediodía, todos los niños de la escuela intermedia están invitados a asistir a BOSS Showcase en línea, una excursión virtual. El programa BOSS es un programa de tutoría gratuito a largo plazo diseñado para equipar a los niños, especialmente a los niños de color, con las herramientas para tener éxito. Envíe un correo electrónico al Sr. Madrigal si su hijo se registra para asistir, de modo que se le marque como presente para asistir durante esos períodos.


3. SEMANA DEL GRAN DESAFÍO DE BONDAD: del 25 al 29 de enero. Nuestro Departamento de Educación del estado, junto con el Gran Desafío de Bondad / Niños por la Paz, anima a todas nuestras clases a participar en la iniciativa anti-bullying de esta semana creando una cultura de bondad. .

Horario:https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1I4kFg9IQDZjFkmN0CtrQYegWEkOeyHfpsoz2Wv8FrC4/edit?usp=sharing


5. Queda una semana antes de que venzan las calificaciones finales

Asegúrese de pedirles a sus hijos que se mantengan concentrados y completen todas las tareas provistas. Si tienen tareas pendientes, asegúrese de que se comuniquen con sus maestros antes de que sea demasiado tarde.


6. Las vacunas para los educadores del personal del LBUSD

serán elegibles para comenzar a recibir la vacuna Covid-19 a partir del 25/1/21. Esto nos acerca un paso más a los planes generales para poder reabrir escuelas en un futuro cercano.


7. Encuesta para los padres del plan de reapertura

Nuestro distrito envió una encuesta a todos los padres la semana pasada en busca de información sobre su interés en que sus hijos asistan a la instrucción en persona cuando sea posible. Tómese unos minutos para completar esta encuesta, ya que nos proporcionará información significativa a medida que comencemos a realizar los cambios necesarios para la instrucción en persona en un futuro próximo.


¡Gracias nuevamente por todo su apoyo para mantener a nuestros estudiantes conectados!



Con agradecimiento por todo su apoyo,
