Dear Roscomare Road Families,
Thank you for extending grace, understanding, and support in the midst of this global challenge that no one was prepared for or could anticipate. We miss our students, and we miss our community. Our teachers are working hard, gaining new technology skills, and collaborating to navigate our new, online/at-home learning program. With that said, I acknowledge that distance learning comes with its own set of challenges not only for teachers and students but for parents trying to provide their children educational support while balancing work and family obligations.
Of course, we are all concerned right now and I know some in our community have been impacted. LAUSD along with iHeart Radio has started LA’s Most in Need fundraiser. If you can donate, please donate to lastudentsmostinneed.org or text the word NEED to 76278.
We also have several parents that are first responders and front line/mandatory workers, thank you.
Spring break starts tomorrow with the Cesar Chavez Holiday and teachers will be offline tomorrow and next week, Monday, April 6th to Friday, April 10th. Online/at-home learning will begin again on Monday, April 13th. Remember the Grab and Go meal sites are still open, for a list of sites, go to https://achieve.lausd.net/resources. LAUSD also has resources to support mental health and wellness at https://achieve.lausd.net/Page/11883. Go to lausd.net for more information or call the parent hotline at (213) 443-1300. Also, note that kindergarten and TK enrollment will start after May 1st.
During spring break, students can also still log into Khan Academy, ST Math, Lexia, other LAUSD Clever programs, and teacher suggested programs. Reading should be done every day so don’t forget to purchase some books from our Online Scholastic Book Fair. Click here for a list of resources that might be fun for you and your children to participate in during spring break. There’s nothing like family fun and love.
We are all in this together,
Dr. Denise Collier
