Hello Amazing Orange Families,

We so appreciate your support!!! You have all been so incredible and flexible in helping your kids with their work ... all while trying to do your own work! We've thrown technology projects, rigorous writing assignments, two different accounts in Class Dojo, math assignments, uploading, downloading, and so on and so forth! You name it, and you have seen it! Your family’s hard work is paying off… it is all coming together. Thank you for all your effort, patience and grace. We hope you reward yourself with a great weekend!

With school closure impacting our ability to organize large end of year event fundraisers, it will help Open School tremendously to have your support while you shop.  Your generosity inures to the benefit of our children.  Here are a few ways in which you can do this, at no additional cost, when you shop for yourself:

Hello Silver Cluster Families!

We hope that everyone enjoyed a wonderful weekend.  As Superintendent Beutner announced last week, we will not be returning to school this year.  As we explained at the parent meetings on Friday, we will be heading back to school to prepare materials for your child to take home.  Due to campus availability, our teaching schedule, and the fact that we are going in on separate times/days to adhere to social distancing, we ask for patience as we gather and prep materials for all of our students.

Hello Open School Families,

Everyday, even though I am finding a little bit of a better rhythm with working from home and this notion of #saferathome, I still feel isolated from everyone and everything that I enjoy so much. And I know I am not alone in these feelings. These are indeed trying times. It is such a polarizing feeling to be torn in so many ways, with so many emotions. However, I find comfort in knowing that my Open School family is ONE and I know we will all prevail, together. These are times that call for the best in all of us.

Hello Amazing Orange Families,

We hope this email finds you and your family healthy and safe. This global pause has really reminded us of what is important in life - family, friends & good health. That's it. Oh, how we will treasure seeing & hugging our friends when this is all over!

Attached below is our schedule for next week and the activities developed by the Specialists! Moving forward, our schedule will remain relatively static. Hopefully this will help smooth all the bumps out from these past couple of weeks.
