Dear Blosser Lane Families and Friends, We hope you are well and in good health. Your patience while waiting during the morning arrivals, and afternoon departures of students is truly appreciated. In the morning, it is helpful and safer, when students are dropped off in the driveway, rather than across the street. Next week, our third graders will take the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). This assessment is designed to provide information about our students' understanding of Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics. Some things you can do to help your child are: talk about the test; make certain they are not frightened or anxious; and, ensure your child gets a good night’s sleep and a nutritious breakfast before testing. If your child will be attending a field trip, remember to get the parent permission slips to your child’s teacher by the date requested. Please be reminded of our district’s fingerprint policy for parents attending field trips. To ensure the integrity of this policy, please do not request an exception to the rule. Please note the following upcoming events: May 17th - English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) mtg; 5:00 p.m. May 27th – Crazy Hair Day Monday, May 30th - no school in observance of Memorial Day. Thursday, June 2nd - K-5 Site Council meeting via Zoom at 3:15 p.m. Wednesday, June 8th - 5th grade promotion, more details to follow Thank you for your time and attention to our Friday Night Notes; have a great weekend. Sincerely, Mrs. Runberg Principal

Dear Blosser Lane Families and Friends, Thank you to the many parents and families that showed appreciation to our staff, during this Teacher Appreciation Week. We are very grateful. Additionally this week, our fifth graders took the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). Next week our fourth graders will test, and third graders the following week. This assessment is designed to provide information about our students' understanding of Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics. The online assessment requires headphones for the English Language Arts portion of the test. For ease and comfort, you may have your child bring in his or her own headphones/earbuds for testing. If your child is unable to bring in headphones, school headphones will be made available for use. Some things you can do to help your child are: talk about the test; make certain they are not frightened or anxious; and, ensure your child gets a good night’s sleep and a nutritious breakfast before testing. Looking for ways to provide input schoolwide? Then please consider becoming School Site Council members; call the office if you are interested. If your child will be attending a field trip, remember to get the parent permission slips to your child’s teacher by the date requested. Please be reminded of our district’s fingerprint policy for parents attending field trips. To ensure the integrity of this policy, please do not request an exception to the rule. Please note the following upcoming events: May 27th – Crazy Hair Day Monday, May 30th - no school on in observance of Memorial Day. Thursday, June 2nd - K-5 Site Council meeting via Zoom at 3:15 p.m. Wednesday, June 8th - 5th grade promotion, more details to follow Thank you for your time and attention to our Friday Night Notes; have a great weekend. Sincerely, Mrs. Runberg Principal

Hello Parents, I hope you're all doing well. We are discussing as a district how we might be able to open school again for in person classes. Please respond to this survey by tomorrow (Friday, February 26th, if possible). We would like to know your choice as to whether or not you will be sending your child back to school or if you want to continue distance learning. Thank you. Also, tomorrow, Friday, February 26th, is an asynchronistic day of learning. Teachers will be meeting for a planning day. There are no morning Zooms, only 12:30 small group reading. Please support students by checking in with them that they are doing the day's assignments in Google Classroom, reading, doing IXL, and catching up on any missing work. Next week we are completing our 2nd report card period. Thanks! Here are the surveys. One is in English, one is in Spanish. Thank you so much! https://forms.gle/skYQLzjTQ8q2XFsz9 English https://forms.gle/uSAgAWLDzX1Ehfd47 Spanish
