Dear Blosser Lane Families and Friends, It is hard to believe we have one week left of the 2021-2022 academic year! As we look forward to next school year, we are pleased to announce an updated school bookroom for our students, similar to the one at Brookside Elementary. With that in mind, please look for a parent survey next week with three questions about books that you like to read to your children, books your children like to read, and books you would enjoy seeing at our campus. With summer approaching, the importance of internet safety for our students cannot be stressed enough. It is crucial to consistently monitor your child's use of the internet and have open communication regarding the internet. A great resource is Common Sense Media.org. Please note that during the last week of school, each grade will be having an end-of-the-year swim party at the Willits High School pool. Please ensure that permission slips have been returned by the date requested; contact your child’s teacher if you have not received field trip information. A special request to all families as they drive the streets around our school, please follow the speed limit at all times. Della Avenue, in particular, has been experiencing accelerated speed drivers on that road. We would like to remind you about schedule changes for the last week of school. Tuesday June 7, 2022 is not a minimum day, it is a regular day with release time of 2:40 p.m. Thursday, June 9, 2022 will be our early release day at 1:20 p.m. Please note the following upcoming events: Thursday, June 2nd - K-5 Site Council meeting via Zoom at 3:15 p.m. Wednesday, June 8th - 5th grade promotion: Rooms 24 and 26 – 9:00 a.m.; rooms 25 and 27 – 1:00 p.m. Thursday, June 9th - last day of school; early release 1:20 p.m. 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, We hope you will get to enjoy this long weekend, in observance of Memorial Day. It is hard to believe we are approaching the end of the 2021-2022 academic year! We are very proud of our students and staff who have valiantly adapted to another extraordinary year! If your students have any outstanding library books, please be sure to turn them in as soon as possible. As we start to think about summer, the importance of internet safety for our students cannot be stressed enough. Many websites claim to be safe for children, yet still have chat rooms in which anyone can chat with users, or have inappropriate advertisements flashing on the sites. It is crucial to consistently monitor your child's use of the internet and have open communication regarding the internet. A great resource is Common Sense Media.org. You can search for any game, movie, website, book, or television show and read reviews and learn about the content of the media. Please note that each grade will be having an end-of-the-year swim party at the Willits High School pool, the schedule is as follows: fourth grade on Monday, third grade on Wednesday, and fifth grade on Thursday. Please ensure that permission slips have been returned by the date requested; contact your child’s teacher if you have not received field trip information. Please be reminded of our district’s fingerprint policy for parents attending field trips. We would like to remind you about schedule changes for the last week of school. Tuesday June 7, 2022 is not a minimum day, it is a regular day with release time of 2:40 p.m. Thursday, June 9, 2022 will be our early release day at 1:20 p.m. Please note the following upcoming events: 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: Rooms 24 and 26 – 9:00 a.m.; rooms 25 and 27 – 1:00 p.m. Thursday, June 9th - last day of school Thank you for your time and attention to our Friday Night Notes; have a great weekend. Sincerely, Mrs. Runberg Principal

Also, as a reminder Monday, January 17th is a federal holiday to honor Martin Luther King Jr. and schools are closed. We will resume classes on Tuesday, January 18, 2022.

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
