Dear Prescott families and friends,
I am thankful to be part of the Prescott learning community.
I am thankful for my inventive, caring, hardworking, collaborative teacher and staff colleagues.
I am thankful for the camaraderie as well as constructive feedback from teachers, staff students, and families.
I am thankful for all our students’ extremely high attendance (97.9%) during Remote Learning.
I am thankful for our students’ hard work while learning from home.
I am thankful for teachers maintaining high expectations of student learning while being incredibly flexible to support each student’s individual needs and circumstances.
I am thankful to be alive and healthy as well as family and friends during the pandemic.
I am thankful for the opportunity to learn and grow in spite of the constraints of the pandemic.
Recently, the district announced that students MIGHT return to school in February, if it is safe to do so. This uncertainty is stressful. It makes it hard for you to plan. It makes it hard to create stability for your family.
Families at home and teachers at school cannot control Covid or the district’s decisions. But we do an excellent job of Remote Learning in November, December, and January! We control what we do and so we focus on that. Teachers and staff continue to collaborate closely with students and families to create a sense of community and to teach as best as possible in Remote Learning.
Painted dots and lines on Marshfield and Wrightwood sidewalks. There are currently NO plans for students to return to school right now. However, we want to be prepared in case students return in hybrid in February. We are always thinking and planning, experimenting, and reviewing our work.
Building Engineer Tracey Brewer has painted approximately 150 dots 6 feet apart from each other. Students will know where to stand for student entrance in case we return to school in hybrid form (50% of students going to school daily). The solid yellow line is to demarcate where parents will stand when picking up students in both hybrid and after the pandemic.
Get your flu shot! Avoid getting flu symptoms which are very similar to Covid symptoms. By getting a flu shot, you avoid thinking that you might have Covid.
