Quote of the week: “April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.” -- William Shakespeare
Dear Ocean Shore Families,
Spring has sprung! I hope everyone got to enjoy the weather yesterday. Today it seems like we are back to chilly Pacifica fog. The entire staff worked incredibly hard this week to get the school ready for hybrid learning. Desks are 6 feet apart, directional arrows are in the hallways, and signs reflecting the Four Pillars (health/hygiene, face coverings, social distancing, limited gatherings) are everywhere. We have outdoor spaces set up for eating and learning and blue dolphins appropriately spaced to show students where to line up. Pacifica School District has put together a website that gives detailed information about returning to school along with links to county updates, travel guidelines and Special Education information. There is also a page devoted to each school with information specific to the sites. The underlined headings are live links. Natalie and I are working on a video/slide presentation that presents additional information and will be linked to the Return to School Webpage soon. Pacifica School District Return to School
I hope everyone has a restful and fun spring break!
Be safe and take care,
School & Community Business:
Spring Break: Spring break is next week, April 5th-9th. School resumes, still in distance learning, on April 12th.
Return to School 2.0: We will have an information night for parents on Thursday, April 15th from 6:00 pm -7:15 pm. I'll present for 20-30 minutes, send you off to meet with the teachers, and then host a quick question and answer session from 7:00-7:15. Ocean Shore will be pushing information out to parents much sooner than April 15th through my weekly letter, teacher newsletters and ombuds. However, April 15th will be a time to give the complete overview and have teachers give specific information about what Hybrid learning will look like in their classrooms.
BACK TO SCHOOL BEAUTIFICATION!--Garden Workday Sun. April 18, 10am-1 pm: Help pretty up the garden and campus with trimming, weeding, and other projects. Adults only - social distance and mask wearing, of course.
