Dear Benicia Families,

Earlier today you received our Solano County School Closure information.  As you know, all schools in Solano County are closed from March 16-27. Our staff has been working diligently to create at-home learning lessons and activities  for our students. The purpose is to provide a reasonable amount of learning opportunities and activities that students will complete during this school closure.  Students are expected to complete the assignments from their teachers. 

Families can expect to get further directions from their teachers by Wednesday, March 18, 2020 about the ongoing plans for  learning opportunities for their specific classes. Please be sure to complete the survey regarding your child’s ability to access technology and internet from home from this morning’s communication if you have not done so.  

While it is not possible to match the instructional practices in our classrooms, our teachers and staff are dedicated to doing what they can to make sure learning continues.  We are so appreciative of their hard work.

For students who received specialized instruction and services, please look for a separate communication from our Student Services Director, Mrs. Julie Corona. 

We will continue to update you as we learn more information.  We feel so grateful to work with our amazing community and staff as we navigate these difficult decisions and times.  Thank you for your support and flexibility.  

Sincerely,
Dr. Charles Young
Superintendent

Estimadas familias de Benicia:

El día de hoy recibió nuestra información sobre el cierre de escuelas del condado de Solano. Como saben, todas las escuelas del condado de Solano están cerradas del 16 al 27 de marzo. Nuestro personal ha estado trabajando diligentemente para crear lecciones y actividades de aprendizaje en el hogar para nuestros estudiantes. El propósito es proporcionar una cantidad razonable de oportunidades de aprendizaje y actividades que los estudiantes completarán durante el cierre de esta escuela. Se espera que los estudiantes completen las tareas de sus maestros.

Las familias pueden esperar obtener más instrucciones de sus maestros el miércoles 18 de marzo de 2020 sobre los planes en curso para oportunidades de aprendizaje para sus clases específicas. Asegúrese de completar la encuesta sobre la capacidad de su hijo para acceder a la tecnología e Internet desde su casa desde la comunicación de esta mañana si no lo ha hecho.

Si bien no es posible igualar las prácticas de instrucción en nuestras aulas, nuestros maestros y el personal están dedicados a hacer lo que puedan para asegurarse de que el aprendizaje continúe. Estamos muy agradecidos por su arduo trabajo.

Para los estudiantes que recibieron instrucción y servicios especializados, busque una comunicación separada de nuestra Directora de Servicios Estudiantiles, la Sra. Julie Corona.

Continuaremos actualizándolo a medida que obtengamos más información. Nos sentimos muy agradecidos de trabajar con nuestra increíble comunidad y personal mientras navegamos por estas decisiones y tiempos difíciles. Gracias por su apoyo y flexibilidad.

Sinceramente,
Dr. Charles Young
Superintendente
