Happy National Principals Month. I want to introduce you to three of WCCUSD's fantastic principals Kim Moses (Ohlone ES), Charlotte Betson (Mira Vista K8) and Kibby Kleiman (Pinole Valley HS). Thank you to all of WCCUSD's school leaders.
Contra Costa County received good news related to COVID-19 with the state moving it from Purple to Red status, allowing more businesses and establishments to open. For WCCUSD to return to a phased-in school building reopening, all District zip codes must be in the Orange status and meet other criteria.
We need your help. Please complete the Multipurpose Family Income Form, regardless of income. It is a key piece to the budget and supports services that directly benefit students. Every family should complete the form. For families that don't qualify, you enter your name, check one box and that is it. Qualifying families it's just a few more steps.
We have a number of ways for the community, families, parents and students to get involved with the Facilities Master Plan's Prioritization Committee and Community Survey and Redistricting Commission.
Meal distribution is from 8 am to 1 p.m. on Tuesday. Due to the unhealthy air quality, we have changed the pick up process. We are now asking that the adult picking up the meal please follow the new signs at the location and to honk their horn when they reach the designated pick up spot and a member from the Nutrition Services team will come out and distribute the meals.
The social emotional support for students, families and staff is of heightened importance in this distance learning environment and I want the community to know that resources and support are available through school health centers, school counselors, teachers, principals, school support staff and the District’s team led by Jodi Couick and new Special Education Director Kristen Hardy.
We have concluded Week 3 of Distance Learning and we want to hear how we are doing. Please share your feedback through ThoughtExchange. We also began important work to address race and equity in the District and its impact on African American students, families and staff.
