From Ms. O:

COVID Reminder: If a child is out sick or, if they are sent home sick, we require a negative COVID test before they can return. Results should be sent to the school site office manager. If a you do not have access to a test, we are more than happy to provide one for the parent to administer, upon request.

School Assembly: Thanks to Sonoma Water and Sonoma Clean Power, the group ZunZun recently visited our school, and presented a musical assembly about water conservation, watershed protection and our connection to climate change. ZunZun uses music and movement with the audience to teach students how important water is and how they can conserve it each and every day. For example, it is important to adjust or turn off irrigation outdoors during winter months when it usually rains. Students learned that their water comes from our local Russian River watershed and it’s very important to keep irrigation runoff, yard waste, and pollutants out of the storm drains which helps keep our creeks, bay and ocean clean. This year ZunZun brought a brand new action based assembly with tons of movement, music and energy. Ask your child, “What can our family do to prevent climate change?”. Saving water, saves energy! We are so lucky too because by signing up with Sonoma Clean Power &”evergreen” program, all of the energy we use in our homes can be from 100% renewable resources. Visit https://sonomacleanpower.org/your-options/ for more information.
Ask your child what changes they can make in their daily routine to help prevent climate change, maybe even a bike to school day!
