CALLING IN SICK
When you call in sick for your children, please indicate any symptoms (i.e., runny nose, cough, sore throat).  Our health clerk, Cheryl Aybar, or our nurse, Tina Takahashi, may be following up with you.  During this time, it is important for us to track symptoms to keep all students healthy.  


TUSD MENTAL HEALTH NEWSLETTER
Our Mental Health Team has launched a newsletter, Building Resilience. This newsletter will come out monthly for families and staff.  We are excited to provide information and helpful tips that can be used at home and in the classroom. https://www.smore.com/c5kxp-building-resilience


There is an upcoming parent workshop sponsored by Western Youth Services highlighting healthy coping skills. This virtual workshop will take place via Zoom on Wednesday, October 21st at 5pm. 


PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES THROUGHOUT OCTOBER
Parent-Teacher Conferences are one of the most important events of the year.  It is extremely important that parents and teachers have this opportunity to discuss your children and the best ways to support them.  Teachers will be sending you a sign-up sheet or form to set your Google Meet time.  


EVERY WEDNESDAY IS A VIRTUAL LEARNING DAY
Myford families please remember to not send your student to school on Wednesdays.  ALL students, with the exception of SDC students, remain at home on Wednesdays for distance learning.  Every Wednesday is also a minimum day.  School begins at 9:00am and finishes at 12:00pm.  


PROPER MASK FIT
Please make sure your children’s masks fit properly; masks should cover the mouth and nose.  Our older students have been AMAZING with taking care of their safety and that of others; we need your help with our younger ones.  Many of our younger students have masks that slide down below their nose. 


BACK LOT TRAFFIC
TK/K parents - please remember that you MUST use the crosswalks.  Under no circumstances should you walk across the driveway.
