Dear Taft Families,

This is Principal Garcia-Rubio calling with our Sunday update.

OPEN HOUSE

On behalf of the Taft Staff, you are cordially invited to our virtual Open House.  We invite you to log into your students’ Google Classrooms at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 24, 2020.  There you will find links to Zoom, video or slides where you can meet our teachers online.  At 6:00 p.m., we will have a Zoom webinar on Title I, our academic goals for this year and Parent-School compact.  This webinar will be recorded so that you can view it a convenient time.  The Zoom link will follow the day before.

PARENT VOLUNTEERS

Parent volunteers are needed to serve on our School Site Council and School Governance Team. Both of these committees give advice on how to best use our resources to support student learning.  It is a time commitment of approximately 1 hour a month. Please email Principal Garcia-Rubio at hgarcia-rubio@sandi.net  if you are interested in being on the parent ballot. The election will take place on Thursday, September 24, 2020 and our first meeting will be in October.

MATERIAL DISTRIBUTION

We will be distributing materials that support learning on the following days:

7th Grade--Thursday, September 24, 2020 from 1:30pm-3:30 p.m

8th Grade--Friday, September 25, 2020, from 1:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m.

6th Grade--Monday, September 28, 2020 from 1:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m.

In particular, students will receive mini-whiteboards to show their work in math as well as a whiteboard marker and a journal to record their responses.

Students and families who come on campus must follow all safety protocols including wearing facial and nose coverings at all times.

FACTS FOR PARENTS

With this email is our San Diego Unified Facts for Parents and a Universal Form.  The Facts for Parents includes information about San Diego Unified District policies. The Universal Form needs to be returned to the school via email as parent or guardian consent is required for media release as well as internet access.  

LEARNING CONTINUITY and ATTENDANCE PLAN (LCP)

SDUSD is currently seeking feedback on the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP).

The Learning Continuity Plan (LCP) will be submitted for the 2020-2021 school year in lieu of the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).  Here is a copy of the LCP in English and Spanish.
