Dear Taft Families,

This is Principal Garcia-Rubio calling with our Monday update.  We hope everyone enjoyed the Labor Day holiday.

This week we will have a minimum day on Wednesday, September 8, 2021.  School will end at 2:03 p.m.

School Communication--PowerSchool, Active Email and Current Phone Numbers

We ask that anyone that has had a change to their email address or phone number to please update that information as soon as possible.  You may update it yourself if you have access to PowerSchool or you may call our front office at 858 935 2650.  Due to the importance of contract tracing, it is important that we are able to reach families in a timely manner.  

If you do not have access to PowerSchool, this information will be emailed to you later this week.  Again, an accurate email account is required.

School Expectations--Dress Code

We ask for your support in maintaining our dress code.  We have reminded and will continue to remind our scholars that shirts that expose the midriff are not allowed.  We have also noticed a few items of clothing with inappropriate language.  Our scholars have been very good about self-correcting. However, we would like to be more proactive so that our scholars maximize their time learning in school.  Thank you for your help and understanding.

Health and Safety Updates--Optional COVID TESTING 

Per the San Diego Unified School District guidelines, masks are still required inside and outside of our school buildings.  Optional COVID testing will be offered at Taft Middle School on Friday mornings.  Two things are required to have your student test at school.

 You must make your selection to opt-in for testing on PowerSchool in the Forms Section

 You must create an account with our contracted vendor. (One Time)

Virtual Open House--Wednesday, September 22, 2021

Due to an abundance of caution, our Fall Welcome Back Night will be on Wednesday, September 22, 2021, at 6:00 p.m. on Zoom.  We will use code 858 935 2650. As a reminder, Wednesday, September 22, 2021, is also a minimum day.

We will have a brief Title I meeting at 5:30 p.m. on the same Zoom code right before our whole school welcome.  All are invited to join us to learn how Taft utilizes Title I Federal funding.

On behalf of Taft Staff, we are glad to see our students on campus! We understand that this is still a difficult time given the circumstances and we are in full partnership with our community so that we can keep our students as safe as possible so we can continue that all-important learning.

Thank you and go Eagles!
