Seeking Volunteers for TK & Kindergarten Classrooms
If you are interested in working in either transitional kindergarten or kindergarten classrooms, our elementary schools are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers! Our schools especially need support for 30-60 minutes at a time in the classroom, during recess, and during lunch.
Please contact Jefferson's Parent Facilitator Gloria Fernandez at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how you can become a volunteer.
Message from Dr. Rosanna Mucetti, Ed.D., Deputy Superintendent
January 18, 2017
As many of us are aware, this year’s Inauguration Day scheduled for Friday, January 20th is anticipated to evoke strong emotional responses across the country, similar to those observed in the days after the election. Despite our own political stances and views, it is critical our community pay close attention to how our youth are feeling as this political transition takes place.
In anticipation, SLUSD wanted to proactively communicate with families about our commitment to student safety and creating safe spaces where students can process the political events, and supporting our students’ voices and their first amendment rights.
Our school site staff has resources for teaching and promoting safe, inclusive activities in the classroom allowing for students to discuss the inauguration and how they might be feeling about our current political landscape. Principals have been directed to be vigilant throughout the week in supporting our students as the inauguration approaches. We remain committed to creating spaces during the school day for students to express themselves and process their reactions.
Elementary and middle school principals have been directed to ensure no students leave campus on Friday as a reaction to the inauguration events. Given the ages of elementary and middle school students, it is important that we are mindful of their safety and believe it is not developmentally appropriate for this age group to be off campus during school hours. Schools will follow absentee protocols, if parents choose to take their children out of school to participate in events with them.
San Leandro Unified School District Summer School 2017 will be held Monday- Thursday starting June 19th - July 27th at a designated San Leandro Unified School campus. Location, times and program information to come in 2017.
