Principals’ Message ~ July 24

Hello FSK families and staff,

We hope you have been able to have a restful summer and are taking advantage of your last few weeks. Although this school year will start off differently, staff at FSK are so excited to begin classes with you on August 17th!

We have a few announcements for you as we approach the 2020-2021 school year:

Superintendent Dr. Matthews made the announcement on July 15th that we will begin this school year with Distance Learning. We understand this brings up a lot of questions and we are working closely with the District and our school leadership teams to provide as much clarity as possible. Dr. Matthews also mentioned that the District is working on a detailed plan to improve Distance Learning and support families and students for the coming year that should be shared with the public on July 29th. As a school site, we will review the guidelines from the District and work closely with our teachers to create a specific plan for your child. We will communicate this with you as soon as we have the plan.

Our FSK families should be expecting an email next week where you will learn who your child’s teacher is and receive a class list of students. Teachers will be reaching out to each family to introduce themselves, ask for parent volunteers and share a Classroom Contact List which will help build a support network for each classroom. If you would not like your information shared with the class, please inform your child’s teacher. We understand many of you may want support with academics or childcare and we encourage families to reach out to each other for further communication. We would also like to remind you that SFUSD teachers may not work as private tutors for students in our District.

Lastly, our school leadership teams have met and further discussed the idea of changing our school name. In the wake of a nationwide push toward a more just society, we feel it is our responsibility to align our school name with historical figures who honor social justice and uplift the core values of SFUSD. We know this is a huge task to take on and we look forward to having more input from our greater school community. At this time, we are focusing our efforts on the start of school in the Fall, but come early September, we will dedicate our time to creating a School Name Change committee and communicating with all our stakeholders for ideas and input.

We wanted to acknowledge that many of you may be feeling anxious about this school year, and that the feelings are completely normal. We are in this situation together and we are going to ask that we continue to show compassion and grace toward yourself, your children, your families and your school community. We are here to listen to you and support you in whatever way we can. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Sending big virtual hugs to each of you,

Ms. Kasner & Ms. Page

你好,FSK的家长和员工们,

我们希望您度过了一个宁静的暑假,并充分享受这几个星期。尽管本学年的开始方式有所不同,但FSK的员工非常高兴能在8月17日与您一起上课!

在临近2020-2021学年时,我们会为您发布一些具体的通知:

学监Matthews博士于7月15日宣布,我们本学年将远程学习开始。我们知道这会带来很多问题,正在与学区和我们的学校领导团队密切合作,以提供尽可能清晰的信息。 Matthews博士还提到,学区正在制定详细计划,以改善来年的远程学习及对家庭和学生提供支持,该计划应在7月29日与公众分享。作为学校,我们将审查学区的指导方针,并与我们的老师紧密合作,为您的孩子制定具体计划。并会尽快将制定计划与您进行沟通。

FSK家庭应该在下周收到一封新学年老师的电子邮件,在其您将了解孩子的老师是谁,并收到同伴学生列表。老师将与每个家庭进行自我介绍,邀请家长志愿者并分享“课堂联系清单”,以助于为每个教室建立支持网络。如果您不想与全班分享您的信息,请告知您孩子的老师。我们了解你们中的许多人可能希望获得学业或托儿的支持,我们鼓励家长们之间的互相联系以进一步沟通。至于近来聘请SFUSD的教师做学生的私人导师的说法,我们提醒大家公共教育的教师们是不允许这样做的。

最后,我们的学校领导小组开会并进一步讨论了更改学校名称的想法。在全国范围内朝着更公正的社会发展下,我们感到有责任使我们的学校名称与尊重社会正义并提升SFUSD核心价值的历史人物保持一致。我们知道这是一项艰巨的任务,我们期待能参与更多学校社区的成员。目前,我们将工作重点放在秋季开学,但是9月初,我们将会专门成立一个学校名称变更委员会,并与所有利益相关者进行交流,以征求想法和意见。

我们意识到许多人可能对目前学年感到焦虑,这种感觉是完全正常的。处于这种情况下,我们共处,希望社区成员们能继续对自己,您的孩子,家人和学校社区表示同情和恩典。我们在这里倾听您的意见,并尽我们所能为您提供支持。如有任何疑问或疑虑,请随时与我们联系。

安康,拥抱

校长Kasner 和副校长 Page
