Veterans Day 2020
Students Returning to school: Parents and guardians, we are very excited to provide in person learning for our elementary students through a hybrid model! In order to safely transition all elementary aged students to an in-person/distance model, we will begin hybrid learning for TK/K-3rd grade students the week of November 30, 2020 and students in grades 4-6 beginning the week of December 7, 2020. When students return to school for the hybrid model, they will attend for 2 days a week (Group A: Monday & Thursday or Group B: Tuesday and Friday) for 3 1/2 hours each of those days and then continue with distance learning the other days of the week. Your actual group will be assigned once we receive all registration forms. If for some reason, the group you are assigned does not work for your family schedule, you can discuss this with your principal. During time on campus, facial coverings will be required. Depending on the number of students choosing to attend hybrid or distance learning, there may be a possibility that your student may be assigned to a different teacher in order to maintain the current class sizes or lower. Lunch and the following day's breakfast will be a "grab and go" style at the end of the school day and a snack will be provided on the days they are on campus. "Grab and go" meals will be available to students during their distance learning days at Cedar, Hesperia Jr, Hesperia High, and Ranchero from 11:00-12:00. For eligible students, transportation will be available. A face covering will be required and as practicable, social distancing will be encouraged. For those students being transported by parent/guardian, the campus will be open 10 minutes before the regular site start time. The district is working with Hesperia Recreation & Park to offer the ASAP program for the students on site after the 3 1/2 hours. More information will be provided as we confirm this possibility. Please complete ONE registration form for EACH elementary student: https://forms.gle/NyU5qfstTYi25Pt76 Padres y tutores legales, ¡estamos muy emocionados de brindar aprendizaje en persona para nuestros alumnos de primaria, a través de un modelo híbrido! Para poder hacer la transición de todos los alumnos de edad primaria de una manera segura a instrucción académica en persona y aprendizaje a distancia, empezaremos con el modelo de aprendizaje híbrido para los estudiantes de kínder transicional (TK)/kínder (K) a 3º grado regresaran la semana del 30 de noviembre del 2020, y para los estudiantes de 4º a 6º grado regresaran al partir de la semana del 7 de diciembre del 2020. Cuando los alumnos regresen a la escuela para un modelo híbrido, asistirán 2 días a la semana (grupo A: lunes y jueves o grupo B: martes y viernes) por 3 ½ horas cada uno de esos días, y luego continuarán con aprendizaje a distancia los otros días de la semana. Serán requeridas mascara faciales mientras estén en la escuela. Dependiendo del número de alumnos que elijan asistir a aprendizaje híbrido o a distancia, pudiera existir la posibilidad de que, para poder mantener más pequeño el tamaño actual de la clase, a su hijo se le asigne un maestro distinto. El almuerzo y desayuno del día siguiente será al estilo de “Grab and Go” (recogiendo y llevándose la comida a casa al final del día escolar. Los días en los que los alumnos se encuentren en casa para aprendizaje a distancia, las comidas “Grab and Go” estarán disponibles para los estudiantes en las escuelas Cedar, Hesperia Junior, Hesperia High y Ranchero, de 11:00 a 12:00. Para los alumnos que cumplan con los requisitos, tendrán disponible transporte escolar. Cuando posible, se les requerirá que utilicen protecciones faciales y se les animará a que mantengan un distanciamiento social adecuado. Para aquellos alumnos que sean transportados por los padres/tutores, la escuela estará abierta 10 minutos antes de la hora habitual de inicio de la escuela. El distrito está trabajando con Parques y recreaciones de Hesperia para ofrecer para los alumnos el programa de ASAP después de las 3 ½ horas. Brindaremos más información, cuando confirmemos esta posibilidad. Considerando la información anterior y las necesidades de su familia, por favor llene un formulario de registro por cada uno de sus hijos. Esta información será usada para asignar a su hijo(s) a una cohorte y para preparar su regreso a la escuela bajo un modelo de aprendizaje híbrido. El enlace al formulario de registro se proporcionará en el sitio web de nuestra escuela, se enviará por mensaje de texto y se compartirá en las redes sociales. Si tiene alguna pregunta en el camino, comuníquese con el maestro de su hijo o con la directora. ¡Esperamos ver a nuestros niños en la escuela pronto!

It has been brought to our attention that some of our families have received notices for planned SCE power outages to take place from 8:00am--3:00pm. These outages may affect a families ability to connect to school devices to receive instruction. Unfortunately for some, the outages may affect the first day of school, Thursday, August 6. Other notices indicate they may have an outage on August 12. I am unaware if there are others. In any case, we want to ensure that your child’s attendance is not negatively impacted. Please communicate with your child’s teacher if this affects you so that we can be sure not to mark your child absent. Attendance can be taken either through being present virtually, or by completing course work. We will be sure that teachers include some video based information and task(s) to be completed when wifi becomes available (could be the following day or beyond). This will be sufficient for positive attendance. Additionally, teachers will ensure any information students need that they missed will be reviewed to ensure all feel confident and comfortable to be successful in distance learning. If the outage affects you or if you are unable to login or have other computer related issues...The above still applies. Our goal right now at the beginning of school is to build relationships with students and families, help communicate the format and schedule, routines and procedures. This will be a work in progress and we will adjust to better meet the needs of our students and families. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

If you need your code, you may send an email to destiny.caillouet@hesperiausd.org or Connie.Cunningham@hesperiausd.org. Please include your child’s name and birthday in your email.

Yearbook
IMPORTANT: I wanted to give you some information about our “Infinite Campus Annual Update”. Today I mailed out students’ report cards today along with a personalized paper for parents/guardians that gives them a code to setup their child's portal. You should receive it soon. The paper indicates the purpose is to be able to access your child’s grades. It is much more. This process will replace all the papers that typically come home the first day of school such as filling out a new emergency card, request bussing, school handbook, insurance info, etc. It is a critical piece that needs to take place, and I wanted to give you more information before you received your code so you don’t misplace it. Some parents were led to believe they will have do so to “re-register” their child. You will not. If your child attended last year they are currently registered. You will only need to verify the information we have is correct and provide any new information you want us to have on file. This will be required for all students but is mandatory if you want your child to ride a bus. Some benefits to you are that you will be able to access your child’s grades, find out your child’s next year’s teacher (July), access attendance, etc. There may be more than one access code/letter in the envelope. Each is personalized to an individual so please check your name. Each parent or guardian who is provided access will need his or her own code.
