An end-of-year message from the Superintendent

Dear families and staff:

As we approach the end of the 2022-23 school year, I want to reflect on our achievements and express how grateful we are for the dedication shown by our school community.

Together, we made a difference. With support from families and partners, we advocated for safer streets, brought back school events and activities we missed during COVID, and ensured uninterrupted learning despite challenges of storms and power outages.

We witnessed growth in reading and math achievement, expanded art, music, and innovation instruction, celebrated award winners, and bid farewell to retiring staff.

five pillars for successLooking ahead, our commitment to improvement continues. We are learners, collaborators, and community builders focused on safe schools and high-quality education. We aim to close learning gaps, promote equity, improve communication, and foster positive school climates.

While more work awaits, we're excited about the upcoming school year. Our intentional steps and data-driven decisions are showing progress. Together with families and the community, we will build upon our successes by focusing on our five pillars for success.

Thank you for your support. Wishing you a restful summer, and I look forward to another productive year.

Keeping Students Safe Online This Summer

Parents/Guardians urged to check students’ online communications while school is out

Please note that Gaggle, one of our district’s online student safety management systems, will not be active from June 10 through August 15.

During this time, student-generated documents will not be reviewed by district staff. Parents and guardians may wish to ramp up supervision of their children’s use of online interactions.

Gaggle reviews student-generated documents for words and phrases that trigger a concern for student safety. For those students retaining district-owned Chromebooks during the summer, will still have web filtering in place to protect students from accessing harmful or malicious websites.

A Word About Wellness

Surgeon General’s Advisory on Social Media and Youth Mental Health highlights the potential harm social media can have on young people's mental health.  The May 23 report mentions exposure to violent, sexual, bullying, and harassing content, as well as the negative impact on sleep and in-person interactions. The advisory suggests that parents and caregivers can take steps to protect their children, such as establishing tech-free zones, foster in-person relationships, teaching responsible online behavior, modeling good behavior, and reporting problematic content and activity.

Tips for Family Supervision and Parental Control

The nonprofit Common Sense Media offers a multitude of resources and information to help families navigate the benefits and pitfalls of screen time and social media use. Parents and caregivers may find the following articles helpful.

We encourage parents and guardians to stay vigilant and actively supervise their children's online activities, especially during the period when Gaggle is inactive. By fostering responsible digital behavior and maintaining open communication, families can help ensure a safe and healthy online experience for their children.
