Webster Information for the Week of March 23, 2020

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!
