Announcements & Upcoming Events
Hello Webster families,
Please use the following link to join Principal Forrest for our March 2020 Spotlight Assembly:
Thank you to all of our students, staff, and families who have worked so hard during this transition to remote learning!
This is Mrs. Forrest with Webster information for the week of March 23rd.
Based on recommendations from the L.A. County Office of Education, Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) schools will remain closed until May 5. PUSD has already taken steps in planning for this contingency, and is engaged in planning for the closure to be extended.
To prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and comply with the State’s “Stay Home” and Los Angeles County “Safer at Home” public health orders, the PUSD Educational Center offices are closed
As essential service providers, District and school staff will work remotely, except for identified employees, and continue serving the students and families of PUSD. Teachers and all other non-essential site personnel were released to work remotely earlier last week, in addition to those over 65 years of age and employees with underlying health conditions.
Services will continue with the following modifications:
All PUSD schools will remain closed through May 5, pending any changes.
School principals and school site personnel will work remotely to support students. School principals will stay in communication with parents regarding learning and technology needs.
The Enrollment, Permits & Student Records office will continue with Open Enrollment for the 2020-21 school year. Please remember that Webster will have a TK next year.
This week, students will continue to work on teacher provided packets (hard copy or electronic) or the remote learning packets. Please set up a schedule for students including school work times, but also plenty of time for play, storytime, and physical activity.
Next week, March 30-April 3rd is Spring Break so no schoolwork is expected to be completed. The following week, beginning April 6, teachers will have their online classrooms set up for instruction through May 5th.
This Friday, March 29th, is the last Friday of the month, so it is a free dress day! You may share students in free dress, connecting with teachers or classmates or learning from home to our Webster Facebook page at Webster Elementary School Pasadena. That can be a fun way for our Webster community to stay connected.
Be well and have a great week!
March 19, 2020 Webster Family Check-in:
This is Mrs. Forrest checking in to see how you are all doing? Almost everyone has their Chromebook and charger at home. If you still don't have this, please come tomorrow between 8am and 11am to pick it up. Please use the double doors by the staff parking lot.
Please make sure that in addition to doing schoolwork, students also have the opportunity to take breaks, go on walks, do puzzles, and play.
I am working at Webster each day. All teachers and I had a remote staff meeting online yesterday. The teachers are working hard to create great PowerSchool Learning classes for students to access.
Our amazing custodians are here at Webster too! They are doing a deep cleaning of the entire school.
If you have any questions or concerns about curriculum, please reach out to your classroom teachers. Their emails are on our school website at www.pusd.us/webster under the About Our School tab, then under staff directory.
Hope you are all well and don't forget that tomorrow is a pupil free day!
Daniel Webster School Tours are on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 8:30 am. Please sign in at the front office.
WEBSTER GARDEN - LEMONGRASS MONTH
In September classes visit and see our healthy and abundant lemongrass plants. Students will learn some health benefits about cooking with lemongrass and steps on how to make a delicious tea. Students will be able to take a stalk home to plant in a garden or pot.
