News

Don’t let our small size fool you—we have BIG things going on! This is our rooftop—the place where we shout all the great news. Check here for the news and announcements that affect our school family.

Purple Tier

As you are aware, Napa County moved into the most restrictive tier. The purple tier limits indoor dining, shopping, and other social activities. Since we reopened for in-person learning prior to the tier change, we will remain open for in-person, virtual, and independent study learning. If, however, there is a five percent positivity rate on any site, or if we have a positivity rate in any class, we will close the class or site for 14 days. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Art Therapy

Our students recently participated in art therapy. They should have brought their butterflies home for you to admire. Aldea Children and Family Services presented a lesson on processing traumatic events in life, which are similar to the metamorphosis of a butterfly. The students responded positively.

This has been a tough year for everyone. If you would like to refer your child for counseling, our district is currently working with Mentis and Aldea Children and Family Services. Please reach out to your child's teacher if you would like to obtain the intake paperwork.

Annual Thanksgiving Feast

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our annual Thanksgiving feast will be on hold this school year. Instead of preparing a meal together, we will be providing a grab and go meal for students to take home to their families. In addition, we will be providing breakfasts and lunches on Monday, November 23 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for all families who wish to accept two days worth of meals. Thanksgiving break will be on Monday, November 23 through Friday, November 27. We will not be providing breakfasts and lunches on Thanksgiving day.

New Reopening Guidelines!

Please make note of our reopening guidelines below. It is critical for you to read this guideline to ensure the proper execution of this plan. 

COVID–19 Parental Resources

Children need to be able to talk to parents about their concerns and have their questions answered. When a child wants to talk about their feelings, stop what you are doing, and listen carefully. For more information on how you can handle your student's emotions during this pandemic, please read our COVID-19 parenting tips in its entirety. Please take the time to read our COVID-19 parenting tips letter in English or our COVID-19 parenting tips letter in Spanish.

Lunch Program

Our free breakfast and lunch program for all students will continue until December. Grab and go meals are available on Mondays and Thursdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
