December 2020 Edition
As we wrap up 2020, I want to say how incredibly grateful I am for our school community. I personally would not have gotten through this crazy year without the support, grace, cooperation, and dedication of our parent community and our incredibly talented staff. I hope that you have a joyous holiday season!
Supporting Student Learning
These are Family Guides created by the team at Achieve the Core to help anyone supporting a child's learning in the 2020-21 school year learn more about what children should know and be able to do, grade by grade, in math and literacy. These guides provide information on the most important things students should be learning, and how to reinforce learning with everyday activities, tips for talking to teachers, and online resources.

Heath and Safety
Thank you for your cooperation with the safety precautions we have in place. Your diligence is helping to keep our school community safe so that we can stay open.
Cloth masks are required to be worn by all children and adults while on campus. The mask should hook around the ears and must cover the nose and mouth.
Proper hygiene consists of washing our hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. Hand sanitizer is available and utilized across our campus.
Practicing social distancing in the hallways, classrooms, and bathrooms.
Stay home when feeling sick or displaying symptoms. Please reference the Student Symptom Decision Tree. Our Health Office staff uses this same decision tree when making determinations about sending a student home from school and when a student can return to school after an illness.
Communicate with our health office with any questions or concerns. Nurse Sarah Hacker may be reached at email@example.com and you can contact Dana Hansen in our Health Office by calling 949-515-6965.
