Welcome to a new school year! The 2021-2022 school year!
Welcome to new and returning students and families!
Welcome to our new class of Kinders, the class of ’34!
As we begin this year with continued concern of Covid, it will be critical that I communicate important information and that you are responsive to the changes.
District directive, is that all students are to return to school. We begin the morning of August 2. Everyone is to be masked.
I sent an email/phone/text to all families with Zoom ID and passcodes for my two Zoom meetings for parent information. One is on July 29, the other is on Aug. 4.
Our goals this year include; respecting ourselves and each other, responding to the affects of last year’s Distance-Learning, and providing the opportunity for all students to read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please email me at email@example.com or call the school office at 953-9601.
We look forward to working closely with you to ensure a positive and productive school year for each student!
If your child is experiencing any of the Covid-related symptoms they are to quarantine/stay home for 10 calendar days. They may return sooner if a doctor excuses the symptoms as non-Covid OR if you return with a negative Covid test result.
For those with seasonal allergies or other long lasting symptoms its best for the doctor to detail such information.
For those actually exposed to a person testing positive, the 10 day quarantine is absolute. The exposed person may not return until 10 days and symptom-free.
I recognize the difficulty this places on families and staff! I hope we will can be lifted off this need sooner than later, but for now this district policy is in place to keep all of us as healthy as possible.
Top 6 things to know about the start of the school year.
#1. School starts at 8:30.
Gr. 1-3 end at 2:25, gr. 3-6 end at 2:36.
AM Kinder is 8:30-12:20, PM Kinder is 10:40-2:20.
#2. Breakfast and lunch are free to all students. Breakfast opens at 8 AM.
#3. Everyone is to wear a mask while indoors when students are present.
#4. If your child has Covid symptoms they are to quarantine. A doctor’s note or a negative Covid test would excuse the quarantine period.
#5. If you are healthy enough during your quarantine the teacher will notify you as to the method of continuing learning.
#6 Staying home to be a Distance Learner is no longer an option. However you may consider other Lodi USD options, such as Digital Academy, Valley Robotics, or Independent Study.
I know that parents have questions regarding how to register your new student(s) who have moved into our area and also those who have students entering Kindergarten for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year. Since our office is closed, there are two options to register your student(s). Wednesday’s from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm registration packets are available to pick up at the school site on a drive-through basis. In addition you also have the option to register new students remotely on the webpage.
In both cases the required documents are as follows:
Residential Verification (preferably within 30 days)
You will need to either provide a scanned copy or take a picture of each page and email these to me at:
If you need help with completing and submitting the required documents, please leave us a message at the school’s answering machine at 209-953-9601 and we will have someone call you back to assist you.
