Dear Grattan Community,
I know many of you have questions about school policies to keep our kiddos safe and healthy as well as the status of upcoming events. We continue to take our cues from San Francisco’s Department of Public Health and SFUSD. Please see their website for additional information as well as SFUSD’s March 8th letter.
There will be no clap-in until at least March 23rd. Teachers will be in their classroom at 7:30AM to welcome students. We are also trying to lower the number of students in the lunchroom at any given time. The plan will be to have two to three classes eat on the yard leaving more elbow room for the students in the lunchroom. However, this requires parent volunteers to support with supervision. If you are able to volunteer for the next two weeks from 11AM-12:40PM please sign up on Konstella and/or just show up in the office a few minutes before 11AM. We will continue to cue students to wash hands prior to eating. Although the idea of “social distancing” is challenging in a building with close to 500 people, please know we are doing our very best and will continue to remain diligent.
In addition, we will be rescheduling Portfolio Night. I’m currently working with teachers to determine when that will be and hope to communicate that to our community by the end of the day tomorrow. As of now, the Talent Show is still on for Friday March 27th as it falls outside of the district’s window to cancel events. If and when that changes we will let you know.
Lastly, please note the following updates. ALL field trips from now until March 22nd are canceled. The GASP Board meeting scheduled for this Wednesday at 6PM has moved to an on-line forum. Please use zoom and number: (669)900 6833, passcode: 24927886 if you’d like to join. Our Friday March 13th PTA meeting is cancelled and our School Site Council Meeting has shifted from March 17th to March 24th at 3:30PM.
Given the ever changing situation I will continue to update you as our policies shift.
