Parent/Guardian Guide to Remote Learning

Alisal Parents and Guardians,

The staff at Alisal is working extremely hard to provide an even better remote learning experience for our students as we begin this school year. We are so excited to have them join us in virtual classrooms on Tuesday! We recognize the pressure that many parents/guardians are probably still feeling. Here is a GENERAL resource that may be helpful as you navigate remote learning with your student. Please remember that information specific to your student's classroom will be coming directly from their teacher.

I've Registered My Kid~Now What?

If you made it through the all-new registration process without too many issues, good job! Now, I am sure you are wondering, what comes next?? Well, hopefully, this will answer some of your questions...

You will find out your child's teacher in one of two ways. As teachers are getting their class lists, they are working on reaching out to students and families, beginning that very important step of building relationships. So, it's quite possible you will hear from someone VERY soon. At the latest, by August 7th, you will be able to sign on to Q and see who is lucky enough to be teaching your child(ren) this year!

After finding out who the lucky teacher is, you are going to want to know how to sign on and access all of the amazing remote learning experiences being developed by our AMAZING Alisal staff. No worries here 11:00 on Monday the 10th you will receive detailed information from your teacher(s) about how to sign on and be ready for school on the 11th. Remember that the first two weeks of school will focus on building relationships, community and connections and that having your child be part of the various live sessions being provided each day are key to his/her/their success.

Finally, to hear directly from your teacher all about this new way of learning (because even though we were remote last year, this year, we are going to be WAY better at it!!), please plan to attend Back to School Night on Thursday August 13th. TK-2nd grade parents will sign on to a link provided by their teachers from 6-7 and 3rd-5th grade parents will sign on from 7-8.

Hopefully I have helped to answer a few of the many questions I am sure you have. As I have shared many times, communication is going to be CRITICAL this year. As always, please let us know how better we can support you and your family.

We are sharing with you the updated bell schedule for the 2020-21 School Year.

*We also want to let families know that the first 2 weeks of school for all grade levels will focus on building community, social emotional learning, and learning classroom routines and expectations.

Beginning Our Year Together

Hello Wonderful Alisal Parents,
I hope all of you had some time to relax and unwind, even if in a new and creative way, over the past couple of months.

As we enter into a new school year, sure to be full of both opportunities and challenges, one thing is for sure-we are going to need to depend on one another to make sure we not only survive together, but thrive together.

Right now, I have a BIG ask of you. In order for me to finish class placements and staffing assignments, I need everyone to make a choice between the three options available to you for the 2020/2021 school year. Currently, fewer than half of all student choices for Alisal have been completed.

Stay tuned to Facebook, your email and our school website for key information about online registration, supply pick up, how to sign on for the first day of school and Back to School Night, all coming sooner than we know.

We are in this together. Thank you for all that you do to support our Alisal Bears at home. We know they wouldn't be as amazing as they are without you right there guiding and loving them.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in one way or another soon...
Karen Johnson, principal
