It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year. This school year will be like no other, it is a first of its kind. We will be starting the year off with distance learning. Your children are living history. We appreciate all of your support and patience as we embark on this new journey together.
Starting August 4, we will have telephone office hours from 8:30 am-12:30 pm every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Our school number is 916-566-1830. You can call and ask questions and eventually set up appointments for assistance.
August 10th and 11th, we will be opening our doors to distribute important materials and supplies for students. During this time we will also be issuing Chromebooks for new students and returning students who do not yet have one. Even if your child has their own device, we encourage the use of our district Chromebook because they have direct access to the apps and features that your children will need for distance learning.
School will start on August 18. I will send more information in the coming days regarding what the first day will look like. For now, please plan on coming on the 10th or the 11th. In addition, you will be hearing from your child's teacher via email or phone call before the 18th.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone next week.
