Welcome back from Spring Break!

Whether you went somewhere or stayed home, hope you had a rejuvenating spring break!

If you did travel somewhere, please see this page for current State of California travel recommendations, or this page for CDC travel recommendations. Both of these pages advise a minimum 7-day quarantine for any unvaccinated individuals–adults and children–who traveled (10 days without a negative test result).

Hybrid students return to 5 days/week

In case you missed it, here is Principal Crane’s newsletter announcement from March 24th, regarding an imminent return to school 5 days a week for hybrid students.

The return dates are as follows:

Grades 3-5: Monday, April 19
Grades K-2: Monday, April 26 

For grades 3-5, the teachers’ planning day is Friday, April 16, so students will stay home doing asynchronous work that day. For grades K-2, the teachers’ planning day is Friday, April 23, so those students will stay at home on that day doing asynchronous work.

Lastly, grades K-5 will all be on the same bell schedule for the rest of the school year: 

M, T, TH, F: 8:05am-1:30pm
W: 8:05am-1:20pm

Principal Crane will continue to share the latest details and updates directly via her newsletter and emails. If you have any questions or concerns, consider attending her Principal’s Coffee this Wednesday at 9 am (see below for link).
