MIDDLE & HIGH SCHOOL NEWS..
MIDDLE SCHOOL AFTER SCHOOL CARE CHANGES
We are grateful to Mrs. Theresa Tovar for her leadership of our middle school After School Care program. Due to family commitments, Mrs. Tovar will no longer be supervising MS ASC, but we are glad that she will continue to supervise the Snack Shack for Nutrition Break and lunchtimes.

We extend a warm welcome to Mrs. Maricela Cervantes, who will now supervise and run the MS ASC program. In addition to new leadership, we will be implementing a new ASC schedule. Please take note of the following changes, if your student is enrolled in MS ASC.
The ASC schedule will be as follows:
2:45 p.m. - 3:15 p.m. ............. Snacks in the Snack Shack
3:15 p.m. - 4:15 p.m. ............. Homework Time in Room 401
4:15 p.m. - 4:45 p.m. ............. Activity Time (Gymnasium, Drama Room, or Field)
4:45 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. ............. Free Time in the Snack Shack (Crafts, Puzzles, Games)
All students should plan to utilize the Homework Time to work on academics. This may include homework, assignments, projects, and reading. Students should have a novel with them each day. Students may be allowed to use the computers to access Google Classroom, or to visit pre-approved educational websites.
Cell phones will not be allowed during After School Care, with the exception of contact with parents. Students will need to request approval from Mrs. Cervantes to use their cell phones. We will still have the bell system installed, for parents to reach Mrs. Cervantes after 4:00 p.m. Mrs. Cervantes will also be using the REMIND app, allowing for parents to text her directly (without revealing phone numbers). This should increase the ease with which parents can communicate their arrival for pick up of their student(s). Information will be provided, allowing for parents to join the REMIND ASC contact list.
We believe that a productive use of after school time will allow for families to enjoy their evenings together, and students to meet their academic requirements consistently.
