Monday Minute – December 21, 2020
Good afternoon, families! This is Mrs. Stevens, with an important message for parents and guardians. We are now preparing for instruction to resume after Winter Break. In order to provide our teachers with more time for planning, Monday, January 11, will be a pupil-free day, which means students will not return to virtual classes until Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at 9am. Again, we will continue in an online format. Your child will receive their class schedule when they sign into their Schoology account. In addition, because of this change in the calendar, the last day of instruction for the school year will be Friday, June 11. Additional information will be posted on our school’s website.
Parents please be sure to SHUT DOWN and charge the school-issued Chromebook and/or Ipad regularly. On the Chromebooks especially, simply closing the device is not enough and it still drains the battery. If you allow the battery to deplete completely, it may not charge or boot back up again, therefore rendering the device unusable. We want to make sure your child always has a working device, so please remember to shut in down (especially over weekends and breaks) and keep it charged. In addition, please see the device care sheet, which includes the price for replacing damaged devices, in the email version of this message.
I want to remind you that the LAUSD Grab & Go Food Centers and select COVID-19 testing sites will remain open to serve our school community over Winter Break. May you all be blessed with safety, good health, and quality time this Holiday Season. Thank you and have a wonderful Winter Break.
