Engaging the mind, the heart, and the spirit
I promised to keep you updated on progress that would support and allow for an expansion of in-person learning. This week I’m very pleased to be able to share some exciting news related to the vaccination of our teachers. This past week, Dr. Sabbah, the County Superintendent of Education was able to secure vaccines for all kindergarten teachers through a partnership with Dominican Hospital/Dignity Health. And then, we were fortunate to receive additional vaccines for additional school staff. These vaccinations are a substantial step forward with regards to our ability to bring more students back to campus for classes. Please read the attached letter which is a joint communication from the all SC County superintendents. Please join me at the next community town hall on Feb. 23 at 5:30 for an update on the plans for this expansion of in-person learning and the new hybrid approach to teaching and learning that will be rolled out for Bonny Doon School students.
It is hard to believe that January is over already. At the same time, we’re already thinking about next year and I’m pleased to be able to share with you information on the 2021-22 school year.
Yesterday and today, evacuation orders were issued for several areas in our County due to anticipated debris flow in the areas impacted by the CZU Lightning Complex Fire and surrounding areas. The impending weather front expected to reach our community later this evening could lead to a debris flow event where loose mud, sand, soil, rock, and water can move down the slopes of the Santa Cruz Mountains endangering the lives of residents. School districts across the county and the County Office of Education are working closely with the Office of Emergency Services to provide communication, evacuation, and sheltering resources for impacted residents.
Please use the 2021-22 School Calendar to plan your vacations during school holidays. Research has clearly shown that students are more likely to succeed when they attend school consistently. Please also note that the calendar assumes that school can resume more or less normally by August. If that is not the case, changes may have to be made.
I think we can all agree, 2021 has most certainly gotten off to an interesting start. While our shared hope of an expansion of in-person learning this month may have been dashed by COVID-19 health conditions and renewed Stay-At-Home orders, there are reasons to be optimistic. I’m pleased to be able to share those with you.
