Note from the Principal

Dear families of Hazeldale,

I hope this finds you all making the most of these unique and challenging times that are facing our community and our world.

I am excited to share that next week we will start to see more specific learning opportunities and lessons provided by our teachers for our students. It won't be perfect. In fact, I can promise there will be technical difficulties, glitches, and all of the other challenges that come with technology and trying something new. You can also expect our teachers to be reaching out to their students to check in to see how they are doing and if there are any unique challenges they are facing with regard to accessing remote learning. The district shared the detailed plan with all families on Tuesday. Monday and Tuesday has been heavy on staff training, preparation, and planning. You should start to see your child's teacher (and/or additional staff members) reaching out to connect with your child by the end of the week if you haven't already.

We miss being together. I've created a public (anyone with link can edit) google folder to upload pictures if you would like to share them with us of how your child is doing during this school closure due to COVID-19. I believe you need a gmail account to do so. You can also email them to me if you prefer at angela_tran@beaverton.k12.or.us Please know I'll likely share them out with staff, post to the Hazeldale Hawks Facebook Page, and also in the end of the year slide show. Please only post pictures you feel comfortable being shared in that way.

Again, we encourage you to please encourage reading as much as humanly possible during this extended school closure. We know that the achievement gap happens in the long breaks from school largely due to who reads and who doesn't. Time spent engaged in text is the most essential use of time during this unexpected break. Please refer to our Read Across America Week newsletter for resources about books! as well as resources shared from your child's teacher.

A colleague recently shared with me that the Oregon Food Bank has #EmergeStronger as their motto right now, and I agree that this very much fits for schools as well. We will get through this, and we will emerge stronger based on how we take care of ourselves and each other right now.

Elementary (K-5) Chromebook Pick Up ROUND 1 (If you filled out the online form by March 27th, you received an email confirming that include pick up instructions)

If you filled out the online form prior to March 27th, you received an email with pick up instructions—and Hazeldale's scheduled pick up date and time is below:

Hazeldale's Pick Up Time is April 3rd, Friday Morning (9am - 11am)

The schedule will not change so please make sure to be at the school at some time during your school’s window (listed above). Traffic flow will be a concern so please be prepared to wait. You do not need to arrive at the start time. We will have a Chromebook for you so there’s no worry that we’ll run out.

Device pickup will be a drive-up procedure. Picking up your device will NOT result in breaking the Governor’s order. We are distributing the devices in a manner consistent with the Governor’s “Stay Home, Save Lives” Executive Order.

You need to fill out this information card PRIOR to pick up. If you do not have it done in advance, you will be asked to pull out of the line and fill out a new form. If you do not have a printer, please put the following items on a piece of paper that will be shown to the distributor of the device: Student Name, Parent Name, Grade and School Name.

You are responsible for the device while it is in your possession. If it is lost, broken or damaged during this time, you may be held financially responsible for the device.

Along with the Chromebook, you will receive a charger and login instructions that include your student’s ID number and password. Note: We are resetting the password for your student(s) so that we can give you the password with the Chromebook.

Elementary (K-5) Chromebook Needs Survey Round 2

We want to make sure all of our students can remain connected to their peers, teachers, and schools and have regular access to learning opportunities and curriculum materials.

Please fill out the form below if your elementary student or students need to borrow a mobile device from BSD. Please complete one form for each student that needs a device. If you already completed the survey in round one (1), please do not complete again.
