I hope you are enjoying your summer break! I have enjoyed time with family and even got to take a small trip out of town.
I have some updates and announcements to share with you:
On July 15th, Superintendent Dr. Martinez made an announcement that all Twin Rivers schools will start the school year with 100% distance learning. Our first day of school is still Tuesday, August 18th. Here are a few of the most important details:
Keeping our students and staff safe is our main priority.
Based on the latest public health information—the coronavirus is not under control with infection rates climbing sharply around the state, including Sacramento County. Therefore, we are starting the 2020-2021 school year in an online/virtual teaching and learning environment. All classes will be held virtually. There will be no in-person classes when school opens August 18, as previously scheduled.
Between now and August 18, our staff of education professionals will turn their attention to making sure that we are prepared to deliver quality instruction.
Our team will continue to stay in close contact with public health officials and SCOE, so that we are prepared to roll out a plan to return to in-class learning when we are confident that we can fully execute strategies to ensure public health.
In order to access the virtual learning platforms, your child will need a laptop. If he or she does not have one yet, one will be provided during the distribution of textbooks and materials at the beginning of the school year.
Over the next few weeks, you will receive information for how to prepare for the 2020-2021 school year. This will be from both myself and the school district. Please stay tuned. I look forward to meeting you all in person and virtually. Please stay safe and enjoy the rest of your summer!
