As you have hopefully heard by now, PUSD preschool through fifth grade students whose families are comfortable with their doing so will be returning to campus starting in January. At Alisal, we have had more than 60% of our students share that they will be coming back to campus and we are thrilled to be welcoming them! Although we don't have all of the details worked out yet, we would like to start sharing with you the things we do know.
In order to accommodate the many different instructional models at each grade levels, all students will be following an AM/PM bell schedule. Bell schedules for TK/K will be 8:15-10:45 for the morning group and 12:30-3:00 for the afternoon group. Bell schedules for 1st-5th grade will be 8:15-11:00 for the morning group and 12:30-3:15 for the afternoon group. Parents will be notified of their child's schedule the week of December 7th and we will be ensuring that siblings are placed on the same schedule.
The first day that students will report to campus will be January 7th. January 4th, 5th and 6th will be days the teachers use for getting ready to welcome students back on campus. Please note this is a CHANGE from the original date first shared.
As we head into this exciting time together, please do everything you can to stay safe as a family. As Dr. Haglund shared in his message to us all last week, we will only be able to return to campus if we are all continuing to make responsible choices.
More information to come about health and safety procedures, parents coming on campus, and more! Stay safe and have a wonderful Thanksgiving break!
