El Dorado Family Letter - Return Safely Together

Dear El Dorado families,

We hope that you are all safe and well.  There are many new dates and updated information regarding the reopening of school that we are receiving and within this letter we hope to provide you with this information in a timely manner.  

 

Recent events in this country as well as in San Francisco and the Bay Area, have seen violence against our Asian-American & Pacific Islander communities.  We stand in solidarity with our diverse community, especially those of us who have been targeted and negatively impacted.  We denounce these actions and any discrimination based off ethnicity, gender, or ability and commit to teaching and upholding inclusivity and social justice at El Dorado.

 

We hope that our entire El Dorado community has a relaxing and joyful Spring Break, which will take place March 29th to April 2nd.  When we return from Spring Break our distance learning schedule will be modified in order to allow our staff to prepare for in-person learning.  From Monday, April 5th to Thursday, April 8th students will be expected to log onto their zoom lessons from 9:00am-9:30am, in which time teachers will check-in with students and prepare students for the day of asynchronous learning.  From 9:30am on, students will be required to independently engage in activities and learning on their own.  Friday, April 9th will be a normal distance learning school day, beginning with our Super Me Celebration at 9:00am.  Teachers will inform you of any class-specific changes to this schedule.

 

Families that choose to have their child/children participate in in-person learning at El Dorado will begin the school day at 8:30am and end at 1:30pm daily (2:30pm if your child is in our SOAR program):

        Our Kindergarten through second grade will be returning to school on April 19th

        Our third through fifth grade students will be returning to school on April 26th

        There will be no after school programs available in the immediate future.  We will inform you of any changes as we learn them.

 

If you are opting to continue distance learning please note that your child’s schedule may be changing.  We will get this information to any family opting to continue distance learning as soon as possible.

 

COVID-19 Testing at El Dorado will take place on the week of April 12th.  Although it is not mandatory to return to in-person learning, students will have the opportunity to get tested and we highly recommend that all students take advantage of this service, which is being offered by SFUSD.  More information about this service will be available in the near future including specific date and time.

 

Important: Orientations Required for In-Person Learning!  We have two orientation dates and times to present important information about reopening and staying safe.  You must participate in one of these orientations if you want your child to come back to El Dorado for In-Person learning.  If you cannot make either of these two orientations, you may visit our website and watch the recorded orientation to get credit for taking the orientation.  You must finish the orientation before your child returns to school.
