Principal's Update - August 26, 2020

Dear Addison Families,

The new school year is off to a good start and we are learning more and more each day! With each new experience, we are working out plans for when Zoom crashes, how to guide students during the student independent work time and office hours, how to take attendance with rotating classes, and the plan for upcoming supplies distribution. As we work out these new details, they will be shared with you through upcoming class newsletters, monthly Parent Zoom calls, or Principal communications.

Our next supplies distribution is planned for Monday, 8/31, from 3-5pm. We are not yet ready to have kids checkout and distribute library books but we anticipate we'll have more information on library book check-out in early September. IF teachers have new materials for students to pick up or drop off, teachers will notify families by Friday @ 4pm the week before distribution. Each site had to submit a plan for materials distribution to PAUSD to ensure a safe process so please see the plan here in preparation for this Monday. I'll also send out a reminder later in the week.

Next Tuesday, 9/1, we will be hosting the Principal/ PTA/ PiE Back to School Night at 6pm. I will be discussing school-wide initiatives and practices and we will have short presentations from PTA and PiE so they can explain how these two important organizations support student learning and school experiences. Also, our Family Engagement Specialist, Claudia Quiroga Cortez, will introduce herself and her role at Addison. She will also be providing Spanish translation. At the end of the presentation, we will open it to questions and comments similar to the Principal's Coffee. If you'd like to join, please see invitation below:
