    Message from ECHS Administration

    Good morning ECHS Parents and Students.

    At last night's board meeting, district administration announced that all May school activities have been cancelled.  I want to clarify a few points regarding this announcement:

    • Several school activities in May have been cancelled already but many students and families were wondering what would happen to events such as Prom and other activities (e.g, Senior Sunset, Grad Night, end of the year dance, etc.)  Those have all been cancelled. The only exception for consideration is our graduation ceremony. 

    • Many students had already purchased tickets for Prom.  Those students and families will receive a reimbursement.  Please know that the process of reimbursement make take a few weeks to finalize.  More information will be communicated to those families soon regarding the steps on how to receive a reimbursement.

    • GRADUATION HAS NOT BEEN CANCELLED but there is current discussion on how it will take place - either virtually on May 29th or postponed to another date.  Details of the options for Graduation were presented at last night's Board meeting. District administration, site administration and our Board will be looking at information regarding those options, which includes discussing models for graduation that schools in our area have adopted.  An extremely important source of information will be based on the feedback from 12th grade students, their parents, and staff via the district's survey that was sent to those students and families yesterday via School Loop. Our district is committed to making sure that we provide a graduation ceremony that honors the accomplishments of the Class of 2020 in a safe and responsible manner. The Board and district administration will re-visit their discussion on graduation at the next Board meeting on Thursday, April 23rd. 

    We know that this news is disappointing for our Seniors and that it has been difficult for all of our students to realize that they will not be able to experience in-class learning, socialization with classmates, and school activities for the remainder of the school year.  I am a parent of a Senior myself and I know it has been difficult for her and her classmates to realize that they will not experience those traditional activities. Please know that we are committed to supporting our students, families, and staff during this difficult time and we will continue to provide updates and support as we receive that information.  Part of that support can be found on our new Counseling website found here.

    Sincerely,

    ECHS Administration

     

    Buenos días, padres y estudiantes de ECHS

    En la reunión de la junta de anoche, la administración del distrito anunció que todas las actividades escolares de mayo fueron canceladas. Quiero aclarar algunos puntos con respecto a este anuncio:

    • Ya se han cancelado varias actividades escolares en mayo, pero muchos estudiantes y familias se preguntaban qué pasaría con eventos como el baile de graduación y otras actividades (por ejemplo, Sunset Senior, Grad Night, baile de fin de año, etc.). La única excepción a considerar es nuestra ceremonia de graduación.

    • Muchos estudiantes ya habían comprado boletos para el baile de graduación. Esos estudiantes y familias recibirán un reembolso. Tenga en cuenta que el proceso de reembolso puede demorar algunas semanas en finalizar. Pronto se comunicará más información a esas familias sobre los pasos sobre cómo recibir un reembolso.

    • La graduación no ha sido cancelada. pero hay una discusión actual sobre cómo se llevará a cabo, ya sea virtualmente el 29 de mayo o pospuesto para otra fecha. Los detalles de las opciones para la graduación se presentaron en la reunión de la Junta de anoche. La administración del distrito, la administración del sitio y nuestra Junta buscarán información sobre esas opciones, lo que incluye discutir los modelos de graduación que las escuelas de nuestra área han adoptado. Una fuente de información extremadamente importante se basará en los comentarios de los estudiantes de 12º grado, sus padres y el personal a través de la encuesta del distrito que se envió ayer a esos estudiantes y familias a través de School Loop. Nuestro distrito se compromete a garantizar que proporcionemos una ceremonia de graduación que honre los logros de la Clase de 2020 de una manera segura y responsable. La Junta y la administración del distrito volverán a visitar su discusión sobre la graduación en la próxima reunión de la Junta el jueves 23 de abril.

    Sabemos que esta noticia es decepcionante para nuestros estudiantes de último año y que ha sido difícil para todos nuestros estudiantes darse cuenta de que no podrán experimentar el aprendizaje en clase, la socialización con sus compañeros y las actividades escolares durante el resto del año escolar.  Yo también soy padre de un estudiante de último año y sé que ha sido difícil para ella y sus compañeros darse cuenta de que no experimentarán esas actividades tradicionales. Tenga en cuenta que estamos comprometidos a apoyar a nuestros estudiantes, familias y personal durante este momento difícil y continuaremos brindando actualizaciones y apoyo a medida que recibamos esa información. Parte de ese soporte se puede encontrar en nuestro nuevo sitio web de Asesoramiento que se encuentra en el siguiente enlace: Click here.

    Sinceramente,

    Administración de ECHS

    SSFUSD Extends School Dismissals to End of Year

    Dear SSFUSD Community,

    This afternoon, Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara county superintendents, in collaboration with the public health officers in their respective counties, announced the decision to extend student dismissals from school and modified school operations, including at-home distance learning, through the end of this school year.

    Last week, we issued an update highlighting announcements by Governor Gavin Newsom and State Superintendent Tony Thurmond, in which they alluded to the possibility of such an extension. At that time, neither the Governor or State Superintendent issued a directive nor an order formalizing their announcements, despite what may have circulated through news outlets.

    We understand that this has caused confusion within many school and district communities throughout the state. In our April 1st communication, we indicated that we would be preparing for school dismissals and distance learning to continue through the end of the school year. This was a proactive approach to remain as prepared as possible for changes we anticipated in the foreseeable future. Please be assured that SSFUSD decisions about our operations, including this extension of student dismissals and distance learning, will continue to be based upon the directives and recommendations of our local health officials and governing authorities.

    SSFUSD remains deeply committed to enhancing our current at-home learning experiences, providing ongoing professional learning to our educators, and further developing our capacity to leverage technology for the facilitation and enhancement of instruction. We will continue to support at-home distributive learning and other essential services through the end of the school year.

    We applaud the efforts of our entire community who are helping to facilitate learning at home. We realize this is a challenging arrangement, as managing work and family responsibilities, while overseeing your child’s learning activities at home, is certainly a difficult task for all families. While we understand how stressful this can be, we recommend the following mindfulness resources to help aid in alleviating stress:

    Thank you for your enduring support, patience, and partnership. Our warmest wishes and thoughts go to all of our families. Please continue to practice responsible safety precautions to stay healthy.

    Sincerely,

    Shawnterra Moore, Ed.D.
    Superintendent

    Estimada comunidad de SSFUSD,

    Esta tarde, los superintendentes de educación de los condados de Alameda, Contra Costa, Marín, San Francisco, San Mateo y Santa Clara, en colaboración con los oficiales de salud pública de sus respectivos condados, anunciaron la decisión de cerrar las escuelas hasta el fin de este año escolar.

    Puede ver la comunicación completa aquí.

    https://www.smcoe.org/about/county-office-of-education/news/bay-area-campuses-to-stay-closed-for-remainder-of-school-year.html

    La semana pasada, el gobernador de California Gavin Newsom y el superintendente de educación estatal Tony Thurmond dijeron que es posible que las escuelas se queden cerradas por todo el estado. En ese momento, ni el gobernador ni el superintendente ordenaron el cierre de las escuelas hasta el verano, a pesar de lo que ha circulado en las noticias.

    Entendemos que esto ha causado mucha confusión. En nuestra comunicación del 1 de abril, indicamos que estabamos preparandonos para el cierre de las escuelas y el aprendizaje a distancia hasta el verano, porque anticipabamos el futuro. Las decisiones del SSFUSD sobre nuestras operaciones, incluyendo el cierre de las escuelas y la continuación del aprendizaje a distancia estarán basadas en las instrucciones y recomendaciones de los oficiales de salud y las autoridades gubernamentales.

    SSFUSD intenta seguir mejorando la experiencia del aprendizaje a distancia y la capacitación de nuestros maestros. Planeamos aumentar nuestra tecnología para facilitar y apoyar el aprendizaje a distancia y otros servicios esenciales.

    Aplaudimos los esfuerzos de toda nuestra comunidad que están ayudando a facilitar el aprendizaje a distancia. Sabemos que esta es una situación desafiante. Trabajando mientras cuidandose a los niños y haciendo tarea en la casa es difícil para todas las familias. Eso es la razón recomendamos los siguientes recursos para aliviar el estrés:

    Gracias por su apoyo, paciencia y colaboración. Por favor siga practicando precauciones de seguridad responsables para mantenerse saludable.

    Sinceramente,
    Shawnterra Moore, Ed.D.
    Superintendente

    ECHS Softball Field

    Good afternoon El Camino Family!

    I am happy to announce that construction on our new Softball field will begin on Monday, November 4th.  We are very excited that our softball players will be able to practice and play games on our campus in the near future.  The coaches, athletic directors, players, and their families/friends have worked hard over the past several years to advocate for our student-athletes and to communicate the need for this field.  We are grateful to our Board Trustees and the SSFUSD Facilities department for making this a reality. The new Softball field will be an artificial turf field that will be installed on the outdoor basketball court area near the small gym (see flyer). 

    The construction will likely take place during the next several months.  During construction the pedestrian and drive-in gates off of Evergreen (near the three-way stop intersection) will be only for construction access.  Students, staff, and community members will NOT be able to use that pedestrian gate to access the school during construction. Updates on progress and other important information will be communicated in the future.  Thank you for your cooperation.

    Sincerely,

    Daniel Lunt, ECHS Principal
