CORONAVIRUS UPDATES AND COMMUNICATIONS

 

Coronavirus Update 50 - Summer Update, Published Tuesday, June 20, at 3:36 p.m.

 

Good afternoon Arcadia Unified Families and Community,

 

We hope that your summer has been safe, enjoyable, and restful for you all. With our 2021-22 school year approaching, we wanted to check in with you and provide an update as we prepare to welcome back our students and staff to our campuses next month. With the recent news about the increase in cases, the Delta variant, and continually changing guidelines for masks, we want to help clarify as much information as possible that we have to date, knowing more changes will likely occur. 

 

Back to School in the Fall

We are very much looking forward to celebrating our students’ return from Summer Break on August 11 (Arcadia High) and on August 12 (TK-8 grades) for full-day, in-person instruction. For your convenience, please find our 2021-22 school year calendars here. As we have shared in previous Coronavirus Updates during last school year, and as Gov. Gavin Newsom has said since the introduction of “California’s Safe Schools for All Plan” (first announced in December 2020), there is an expectation for California schools to resume full-day, in-person instruction this fall. As we prepare to engage in a more “normal” schedule this school year, we want to reaffirm our commitment to following all current local and statewide health and safety guidelines and will do everything in our control to ensure the health and safety of our students, staff, and families. 

 

Current Mask and Health and Safety Guidelines

As of July 17, the LA County Department of Public Health reinstated its mask mandate, which applies to everyone, regardless of vaccination status. To align with current health and safety guidance, we will require our students and staff, absent an exemption, to wear masks while indoors throughout the school day. Additionally, as of July 12, 2021, the California Department of Public Health shared, “evidence indicates that in-person instruction can occur safely without minimum physical distancing requirements when other mitigation strategies (e.g., masking) are fully implemented.” Accordingly, we will not have a minimum physical distancing requirement on our campuses. We will continue to work closely with our local and state public health departments to implement any and all health and safety guidelines should any changes be made. 

 

Independent Study Option 

With our return to full-day, in-person learning, we will not be offering the distance learning concurrent hybrid instruction in the fall as we did last year. Please note, the State’s emergency distance learning provisions that were put in place for the 2020-21 school year expired on June 30. Currently in place are Assembly Bill 86, Assembly Bill 130, and Senate Bill 130, which require independent study options. Therefore, per this guidance, we will be offering an Independent Study Option through our Rancho Learning Center. You can read more about the recent changes and guidelines that have been directed by the state in this article

 

To be clear, this option will remove your child from their home school and teacher, enroll them in this separate Independent Study program through Rancho Learning Center, not have as many class and course options as the student’s home school, and it will not be similar to the distance learning option that many of our students opted for and participated in last year. The Independent Study option will operate on individual master agreements between the student, parent, and school, which will require a significant amount of unsupervised and independent work by students. It will keep your student on track for matriculation and graduation, and unlike some school districts, we do have ample experience and have offered Independent Study programs for years.   

 

If you are interested in more information or are considering enrolling your child in our Independent Study program, please visit the Rancho Learning Center website. You may also contact Dr. John Tung at jtung@ausd.net.

 

Free School Lunches Continue 

State and federal guidelines have allowed for free meals (breakfast and lunch) to continue for all of our students through the 2021-22 school year. It remains important, however, for us to collect data from our families by way of the Free and Reduced Meal Application. Did you know that completing this application may also qualify your student(s) for scholarships, financial aid, test and application fee waivers, provides important funding for our schools, may result in utility rebates for families, and more?

 

We encourage our families to take a few minutes to complete the 2021-22 school year Free and Reduced Meal Application online now here. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact our Nutrition Services office at (626) 821-8322.

 

What’s Next

While we are excited to start the new school year and our staff is enthusiastically planning to welcome all of our students back to school in a few weeks, we also understand there are concerns, frustrations, and more questions that people will have as we get closer to our full opening in the fall. To help keep everyone updated and informed, starting now, we will resume with our weekly Coronavirus Updates. You can expect weekly updates from now until at least the first few weeks of school. We are also in the process of creating a new COVID-19 webpage with information specific to this coming school year, along with a new set of FAQs for the fall semester. Both the new webpage and FAQs will be published by the end of next week. 

 

Commitment to Communications

As always, we remain committed to updating our dedicated Coronavirus webpage with new resources and information. You can view this communication, our 50th, (in English and Chinese) and all the previous updates we have sent to all parents and staff on our website. If you or someone you know needs additional language support, please let us know. We also encourage you to follow our Facebook page and Twitter page, where we will share additional non-urgent information and Arcadia Unified news. You can sign up for our Arcadia Unified Community Email List here, and/or encourage others to do so to ensure receipt of our communications. We wish you continued safety and happiness in the final days of summer ahead. 

 

Sincerely,

Arcadia Unified School District 



冠状病毒更新 50 - 夏季更新

 

下午好阿卡迪亚联合家庭和社区,

 

我们希望您的夏天对你们所有人来说都是安全、愉快和宁静的。随着我们 2021-22 学年的临近,我们想与您联系并提供最新信息,因为我们准备在下个月欢迎我们的学生和教职员工回到我们的校园。随着最近有关病例增加、Delta 变体以及口罩指南不断变化的消息,我们希望帮助澄清我们迄今为止拥有的尽可能多的信息,因为我们知道可能会发生更多变化。

 

秋季返校

我们非常期待庆祝我们的学生从 8 月 11 日(阿卡迪亚高中)和 8 月 12 日(TK-8 年级)的暑假返回,进行全天的面对面教学。为方便起见,请在此处找到我们的 2021-22 学年日历。正如我们在上一学年之前的冠状病毒更新中所分享的那样,正如州长加文·纽瑟姆(Gavin Newsom)自推出“加州全民安全学校计划”(于 2020 年 12 月首次宣布)以来所说的那样,加州学校有望恢复今年秋天的全天面对面指导。当我们准备在本学年采用更“正常”的时间表时,我们要重申我们对遵守所有当前当地和全州健康与安全准则的承诺,并将尽我们所能确保我们学生的健康和安全,工作人员和家属

 

当前的口罩和健康与安全指南

自 7 月 17 日起,洛杉矶县公共卫生局恢复了口罩规定,该规定适用于所有人,无论疫苗接种状态如何。为了与当前的健康和安全指南保持一致,我们将要求我们的学生和教职员工在整个上课日在室内戴口罩,除非有豁免。此外,截至 2021 年 7 月 12 日,加利福尼亚州公共卫生部表示,“有证据表明,当其他缓解策略(例如,蒙面)得到全面实施时,可以安全地进行面对面教学,而无需最低物理距离要求。”因此,我们的校园不会有最低物理距离要求。如果发生任何变化,我们将继续与我们当地和州公共卫生部门密切合作,以实施所有健康和安全指南。

 

独立学习选项

随着我们恢复全天面对面学习,我们将不会像去年那样在秋季提供远程学习并发混合教学。请注意,纽约州为 2020-21 学年实施的紧急远程学习规定已于 6 月 30 日到期。 目前实施的是议会第 86 号法案、第 130 号议会法案和第 130 号参议院法案,它们需要独立学习选项。因此,根据本指南,我们将通过我们的 Rancho 学习中心提供独立学习选项。您可以在本文中阅读有关国家指示的最近更改和指南的更多信息。

 

需要明确的是,此选项会将您的孩子从他们的家庭学校和老师中删除,通过 Rancho 学习中心让他们参加这个单独的独立学习计划,没有学生家庭学校那么多的课程和课程选择,并且不会相似我们的许多学生去年选择并参与了远程学习选项。独立学习选项将根据学生、家长和学校之间的个别硕士协议运作,这将需要学生进行大量无人监督的独立工作。这将使您的学生顺利完成预科和毕业,与某些学区不同的是,我们确实拥有丰富的经验,并且多年来一直提供独立学习课程。

 

如果您对更多信息感兴趣或正在考虑让您的孩子参加我们的独立学习计划,请访问 Rancho 学习中心网站。您也可以通过 jtung@ausd.net 联系 John Tung 博士。

 

免费学校午餐继续

州和联邦准则允许我们所有学生在 2021-22 学年继续免费用餐(早餐和午餐)。然而,通过免费和减价膳食应用程序从我们的家庭收集数据对我们来说仍然很重要。您是否知道,完成此申请还可能使您的学生有资格获得奖学金、经济援助、考试和申请费减免、为我们的学校提供​​重要资金、可能为家庭带来水电费回扣等等?

 

我们鼓励我们的家人花几分钟时间在此处在线完成 2021-22 学年免费和减价膳食申请。如果您有任何问题或需要帮助,请致电 (626) 821-8322 联系我们的营养服务办公室。

 

下一步是什么

虽然我们很高兴开始新的学年,我们的工作人员正热情地计划在几周内欢迎我们所有的学生回到学校,但我们也理解随着我们越来越近,人们会有一些担忧、沮丧和更多问题我们在秋季全面开放。为了帮助每个人了解最新情况,从现在开始,我们将继续每周更新冠状病毒。从现在到至少开学前几周,您可以期待每周更新。我们还在创建一个新的 COVID-19 网页,其中包含即将到来的学年的特定信息,以及秋季学期的一组新常见问题解答。新网页和常见问题解答将于下周末发布。

 

对通讯的承诺

与往常一样,我们仍然致力于用新的资源和信息更新我们的冠状病毒专用网页。您可以在我们的网站上查看此通讯、我们的 50 日(英文和中文)以及我们之前发送给所有家长和员工的所有更新。如果您或您认识的人需要额外的语言支持,请告诉我们。我们还鼓励您关注我们的 Facebook 页面和 Twitter 页面,我们将在其中分享其他非紧急信息和 Arcadia Unified 新闻。您可以在此处注册我们的 Arcadia 统一社区电子邮件列表,和/或鼓励其他人这样做以确保收到我们的通信。我们希望您在即将到来的夏季最后几天继续安全和幸福。

 

真挚地,

阿卡迪亚联合学区

 

 

Coronavirus Update 49 - Thank You! Published Friday, June 4, at 2:08 p.m.

 

Good afternoon Arcadia Unified Families and Community,

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you. We can’t express our gratitude enough to everyone in our Arcadia Unified family. From our remarkable students and staff to our outstanding parents and community members, we could not have had such a successful school year in the midst of a pandemic without your resilience, support, understanding, flexibility, and resolve. Our values, as seen on the walls of the Arcadia Education Center, are as follows: Collaborate, Think Critically, Be Creative, Offer Empathy, and Learn from Failure. We are so proud of our team, you included, for living our values even through the most difficult of circumstances to ensure our students can continue to live out our purpose: “To challenge and inspire students to make a positive and profound impact on their world.” When our Arcadia High seniors walk across the stage tonight, and as all of our other students matriculate to their next level in school and life, we know they have had the necessary support and encouragement to make a positive and profound impact on their world. We could not be more thankful and proud. 

 

Coronavirus Updates and Staying Connected This Summer

It’s remarkable to think that our first Coronavirus Update was sent to our community on January 23, 2020. 49 Updates later, we will continue to keep you as informed as possible throughout the summer. To respect your summer break, however, our weekly Updates will become monthly or as needed with any critical information. We highly suggest you follow our Facebook page if you would like more frequent updates and information, especially during the summer. Our Facebook page is also a great resource to follow in case of an emergency situation, where our email system or yours may not be working properly. You can simply click the link above, or search, “Arcadia Unified School District'' on Facebook and look for our feather logo. For the Class of 2021 families who will no longer be in our schools, and therefore no longer in our system to receive communications, you can sign up for our community email list to continue to receive important updates from us.

下午好阿卡迪亚联合家庭和社区,

 

谢谢你,谢谢你,谢谢你。我们对 Arcadia Unified 大家庭中的每个人表达的谢意都不为过。从我们出色的学生和教职员工到我们杰出的家长和社区成员,如果没有你们的韧性、支持、理解、灵活性和决心,我们不可能在大流行中度过如此成功的学年。正如阿卡迪亚教育中心的墙上所见,我们的价值观如下:协作、批判性思考、富有创造力、同情心和从失败中学习。我们为我们的团队感到自豪,包括您在内,即使在最困难的情况下也能践行我们的价值观,以确保我们的学生能够继续实现我们的目标:“挑战和激励学生对他们的世界产生积极而深远的影响。”当我们的阿卡迪亚高中毕业生今晚走过舞台时,随着我们所有其他学生进入学校和生活的下一阶段,我们知道他们得到了必要的支持和鼓励,对他们的世界产生了积极而深远的影响。我们无比感激和自豪。

Coronavirus Update 48 - Final Week Ahead Published Friday, May 28, at 1:16 p.m.

 

Good afternoon Arcadia Unified Families and Community,

 

In less than a week, the 2020-21 school year will be in the history books, and one week from today, our Class of 2021 graduates will be at Santa Anita Park celebrating their hard-earned Arcadia High School diplomas. With the final few days on the horizon, we are here with our weekly check-in. We’d also like to pause for a moment in recognition of those who have fallen in service to our country as we head into Memorial Day weekend. As a reminder, there is no school on Monday. 

 

State Testing

As was noted in Update 42, the California State Board of Education requested a flexibility waiver from the U.S. Department of Education to allow for flexibility of the Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBA), CA Science Test (CAST), and CA Alternate Assessments (CAA). Arcadia Unified exercised the option to use local assessments for grades 3-8, and Smarter Balanced Assessments were administered for students in 11th grade. Parents will be electronically notified as score reports become available. Directions for accessing the reports will be sent in the notification this summer. Student score reports will be accessible via the parent portal in PowerSchool. 

 

New Leaders and Next School Year

As we close out the current school year, we gratefully look ahead to the 2021-22 school year, which will see us welcoming back all of our students, teachers, and staff to all of our campuses in the fall. We ask that you please make sure that the contact information for your student(s) is up-to-date with your respective schools so that you don’t miss any important information related to the school year ahead. The new school year will also see some familiar faces in new leadership roles, with the following appointments made during this week’s Board of Education meeting

 

Arcadia Unified Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment, Catherine Merel, who we celebrate with sincere appreciation as she enters retirement after this school year will be succeeded by Dr. Daniel Hacking, who currently serves as our Dana Middle School Principal. We are currently hiring for the Dana Middle School principal position.

 

Rancho Learning Center Principal, Laurie McQuaid, who we also share our deepest gratitude for her service to our district as she heads into retirement after this school year, is passing the baton to Dr. John Tung, previously an Assistant Principal at Arcadia High and currently a principal at Lone Hill Middle School in San Dimas.

 

Hugo Reid Principal, Dr. Lauren Leahy, is being given our heartfelt adieu as we celebrate her promotion in Solana Beach Unified Schools and will pass the torch to Kimberly Lauxen, who currently serves as Hugo Reid’s school counselor.

 

You may view photos from the momentous Board of Education Meeting and these appointments on our Facebook page here

状态测试

正如更新 42 中所述,加利福尼亚州教育委员会要求美国教育部豁免灵活性,以允许更灵活的平衡评估 (SBA)、加州科学考试 (CAST) 和加州替代评估 (CAA) . Arcadia Unified 行使了对 3-8 年级使用本地评估的选项,并为 11 年级的学生管理了更智能的平衡评估。当分数报告可用时,家长将收到电子通知。访问报告的说明将在今年夏天的通知中发送。学生成绩报告可通过 PowerSchool 中的家长门户访问。

 

新领导和下一学年

在本学年结束之际,我们感激地展望 2021-22 学年,届时我们将在秋季欢迎所有学生、教师和教职员工回到我们所有的校园。我们要求您确保您学生的联系信息与您所在学校保持同步,以免错过任何与下一学年相关的重要信息。新学年还将在新的领导角色中看到一些熟悉的面孔,在本周的教育委员会会议上做出了以下任命:

 

Arcadia 课程、教学和评估统一总监 Catherine Merel 在她本学年结束后退休时我们衷心感谢她,她将由 Daniel Hacking 博士接替,她目前担任我们的 Dana 中学校长。我们目前正在招聘达纳中学校长职位。

 

Rancho 学习中心校长 Laurie McQuaid,我们也对她在本学年结束后退休时对我们学区的服务表示最深切的感谢,她将接力棒交给 John Tung 博士,她之前是 Arcadia 高中的助理校长,现在圣迪马斯孤山中学的校长。

Coronavirus Update 47 - Next Year & Masks Published Friday, May 21, at 3:16 p.m.

 

Good afternoon Arcadia Unified Families and Community,

 

We hope you and your family are doing well. It’s remarkable to think that there are just eight school days left in the year. As we wind down the year and head into the weekend, we wanted to provide you with another Update with the latest information. 

 

Next School Year

Though we are entering the home stretch of this school year, we have naturally already been planning and thinking ahead for next school year and know our families are as well. As mentioned in previous Updates, next fall, all Arcadia Unified schools will be welcoming back all students and staff to campuses for normal pre-pandemic school days, including all extracurricular activities, sports, performing and visual arts, clubs, etc., pending any changes in the trajectory of the guidelines and health restrictions come August. 

 

Masks

Masks are and still will be required for the remainder of this school year per the guidelines from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH). Please continue to wear a mask when you are on any part of our campuses. We continue to appreciate your cooperation and support with the health guidelines. Last Saturday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) clarified coronavirus advice for schools, recommending the continued, universal use of masks and physical distancing, which came after its announcement last week that vaccinated Americans could forego masks indoors. You can read more about the CDC’s clarification via this N.Y. Times article.   

 

Arcadia High School Campus Open for Public Use

We are pleased to announce that Arcadia High School, First Avenue, and Camino Grove campuses are now open again for the public to enjoy. All health and safety protocols must be followed when on our campuses. Hours of use are as they were before the pandemic, with typical hours running from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. during the week and 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on the weekends. Please note that hours of use are subject to change, and our students and programs have priority use. We enjoy our partnership with the City of Arcadia in allowing the public to use our facilities and greatly appreciate our community members cleaning up after themselves, removing litter, and taking great care of and pride in our campuses. 

 

Vaccines Available

In addition to the vaccination clinics we have held, the county is continuing to offer free vaccinations. According to LACDPH, you can easily find a vaccination site near you, make an appointment, and much more by visiting: www.VaccinateLACounty.com. If you don’t have internet access, can’t use a computer, or you’re over 65, you can call 1-833-540-0473 for help finding an appointment or scheduling a home-visit if you are homebound. 

 

Important Dates 

May 31- Memorial Day, All Schools and Offices Closed

June 3- Last Day of School for all schools! 

June 4- Arcadia High School Graduation

August 11- First Day of School for Arcadia High School

August 12- First Day of School for all Elementary and Middle Schools

You can view all of the school year calendars, including next year’s, via this link.

下午好,阿卡迪亚统一家庭与社区,

 

希望您和您的家人一切都好。令人惊奇的是,一年仅剩八个教学日。随着一年的结束,进入周末,我们希望为您提供另一个包含最新信息的更新。

 

下学年

尽管我们正进入本学年的学习期,但我们自然已经在计划和思考下学年,并且知道我们的家人也是如此。如先前的更新所述,明年秋天,所有Arcadia统一学校将欢迎所有学生和教职员工回到校园进行大流行前的正常上学日活动,包括所有课外活动,体育,表演和视觉艺术,俱乐部等,指南的轨迹和健康限制发生了变化,将于8月发布。

 

面具

根据洛杉矶县公共卫生局(LACDPH)的指导方针,在本学年的剩余时间内,口罩仍然是必需的。当您在我们校园的任何地方时,请继续戴口罩。我们继续感谢您对健康指南的合作与支持。上周六,疾病控制与预防中心(CDC)澄清了针对学校的冠状病毒建议,建议继续普遍使用口罩和身体疏远,这是在上周宣布接种疫苗的美国人可以在室内放弃口罩之后提出的。您可以通过纽约时报的这篇文章,详细了解CDC的说明。

 

阿卡迪亚高中校园开放供公众使用

我们很高兴地宣布,阿卡迪亚高中,第一大道和卡米诺格罗夫校区现已重新开放供公众使用。在我们的校园中,必须遵守所有健康和安全规程。使用时间与大流行之前一样,通常从下午5点开始使用。到晚上10点在一周中,从上午8点到晚上10点在周末。请注意,使用时间可能会有所变化,我们的学生和课程将优先使用。我们与阿卡迪亚市建立了合作伙伴关系,使公众能够使用我们的设施,并非常感谢社区成员自家清理,清理垃圾以及对我们的校园感到特别关怀和自豪。

 

可用疫苗

除了我们拥有的疫苗接种诊所外,该县还将继续提供免费疫苗接种。根据LACDPH的说法,您可以访问以下网址轻松找到附近的疫苗接种网站,进行预约以及进行更多操作:如果您无法上网,无法使用计算机,或者您已年满65岁,则可以致电1-833-540-0473寻求帮助,以预约或安排家庭访问。

Coronavirus Update 46 - Student Vaccinations Published Friday, May 14, at 2:50 p.m.

 

Good afternoon Arcadia Unified Families and Community,

 

We hope that the month of May has gotten off to a great start for you all. As of today, we are three weeks away from Arcadia High’s Class of 2021 graduation at Santa Anita Park, which means we are a little less than three weeks away from concluding this historic school year. With things wrapping up, we wanted to continue our weekly check-in with new information, resources, and reminders. 

 

Latest COVID-19 Guidance and Recommendations 

As mentioned in previous Updates, while the number of COVID-19 cases drop and restrictions also lessen, we are continuing to maintain our current health and safety guidelines that we implemented when we reopened our schools, including wearing a mask, while school is in session. We are able to increase some after-school in-person activities, as we mentioned in last week’s Update 45, such as graduation and prom. Yesterday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released guidance indicating that people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can safely resume activities that were done prior to the pandemic (see link below). According to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH), “L.A. County and the state will review the recommendations in order to make sensible adjustments.” You can read more about this from a press release issued by LACDPH yesterday. 

 

Student Vaccinations

We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with the Albertsons/Vons Pharmacy team to help offer a vaccination clinic at Arcadia High School for our students. Wednesday, the CDC affirmed the recommendation by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to expand the emergency use authorization of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for adolescents 12 to 15 years of age. We have been able to add additional vaccination appointments to help accommodate our middle school students, in addition to our high school students. An email with detailed information was sent yesterday to Middle School families and last week to our High School families from our Health Services Department to eligible families. Be sure to check your email if you would like further information. In the meantime, there are other vaccination opportunities available for our students being offered through the county. You can read more about that in the following paragraph via LACDPH. 

 

“Vaccinations sites across L.A. County began vaccinating younger teens (yesterday), and all eight County sites are offering Pfizer for younger teens as of (yesterday). At the County sites, and many other sites, appointments are available and walk-ins are welcome. Please note that many sites require that children be accompanied by a parent or guardian or that the child is accompanied by a responsible adult and has a signed consent form. Teens are also required to bring proof of their age at sites where they are not known to the provider. Visit the Public Health website for a map and list of sites offering Pfizer vaccines.” You can read more about this from the press release issued by LACDPH yesterday. 

 

Important Dates 

May 31- Memorial Day, All Schools and Offices Closed

June 3- Last Day of School for all schools! 

June 4- Arcadia High School Graduation

August 11- First Day of School for Arcadia High School

August 12- First Day of School for all Elementary and Middle Schools

You can view all of the school year calendars, including next year’s, via this link.

下午好,阿卡迪亚统一家庭与社区,

 

我们希望五月的开始对你们所有人来说都是一个美好的开始。截至今天,距离圣塔阿妮塔公园(Santa Anita Park)的Arcadia高中2021年级毕业尚有三个星期,这意味着距这个历史悠久的学年只有不到三周的路程。随着事情的结束,我们希望继续每周进行检查,并提供新的信息,资源和提醒。

 

最新的COVID-19指导和建议

如之前的更新所述,虽然COVID-19病例数下降且限制有所减少,但我们仍将继续维持当前的健康与安全准则,该准则是我们在开学期间重新开放学校时实施的,包括戴上口罩。 。正如上周更新45中提到的,我们可以增加一些课后面对面的活动,例如毕业和毕业舞会。昨天,疾病控制与预防中心(CDC)发布了指南,指出完全接种COVID-19疫苗的人可以安全地恢复大流行之前所做的活动(请参见下面的链接)。根据洛杉矶县公共卫生局(LACDPH)的说法,县和州将审核这些建议,以便做出明智的调整。”您可以从昨天LACDPH发布的新闻稿中了解有关此内容的更多信息。

 

学生疫苗接种

我们很高兴地宣布,我们已经与Albertsons / Vons药房团队合作,为学生在Arcadia高中提供了一个疫苗接种诊所。星期三,美国疾病预防控制中心(CDC)确认了美国食品药品监督管理局(FDA)的建议,将辉瑞COVID-19疫苗的紧急使用授权扩大到12至15岁的青少年。除了高中生,我们还可以添加其他疫苗接种约会,以帮助容纳我们的中学生。昨天,从健康服务部向合格家庭发送了一封包含详细信息的电子邮件,给中学家庭,上周给我们的高中家庭发送了电子邮件。如果您需要更多信息,请务必检查您的电子邮件。同时,该县还为我们的学生提供了其他疫苗接种机会。您可以在以下段落中通过LACDPH阅读更多有关该内容的信息。

 

“整个洛杉矶县的疫苗接种点(昨天)开始为年轻人接种疫苗,截止到昨天(昨天),所有八个县的接种点都在为年轻人提供辉瑞疫苗。在县县的站点以及许多其他站点,都可以预约并欢迎步入式。请注意,许多网站都要求儿童必须由父母或监护人陪同,或者儿童必须由负责任的成年人陪同并有签署的同意书。青少年还必须在提供者不知道的地点携带年龄证明。请访问公共卫生网站,以获取提供辉瑞疫苗的地图和站点清单。”您可以从昨天LACDPH发布的新闻稿中了解有关此内容的更多信息。

Coronavirus Update 45 - Yellow Tier Published Friday, May 7, at 1:47 p.m.

 

Good afternoon Arcadia Unified Families and Community,

 

As we end Teacher Appreciation, National Nurse, and School Nutrition Employee Week today, we continue to celebrate and thank our remarkable staff for the work they do that is so vital to our health, safety, and success. A special thanks to our teachers, nutrition staff, and nurse heroes this week! Please be sure to thank them if you have the opportunity to do so. 

We also wanted to take a moment to provide another update with the latest information for our families. 

 

Los Angeles County Now in the Yellow Tier

Los Angeles County is officially in the Yellow Tier in the state’s tiered system as of yesterday. With the continued reduction in cases and another drop in Tier status, restrictions continue to lessen. For example, there is now expanded capacity at restaurants, gyms, museums, etc. You can read more about the new restrictions via this press release from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. Please note, even with the drop to Yellow Tier, Arcadia Unified will continue with our current health and safety protocols, especially during the school day, and school schedules for the remainder of the school year. 

 

Arcadia High School Graduation

We are excited to announce that we are able to host our annual Graduation Ceremony at Santa Anita Racetrack on June 4. Physical distancing and other safety protocols will be in place, along with a limited capacity for guests. We are also pleased that Arcadia High will be able to host several other Senior Activities to honor and commemorate our remarkable Class of 2021. AHS will remain in communication with more information on specific events and activities. 

 

Important Dates *Updated*

We have updated our school year calendars to reflect that there are not any “minimum days” during the last week of school. With the adjusted school-day schedule for this year during the pandemic, the current schedule will remain in effect through the remainder of this year. As such, there are no minimum days for elementary and middle schools. Arcadia High School will have its final exam schedule. Look for further communications directly from your school as we get closer to the end of the school year.  

You can view all of the updated school year calendars, including next year’s, via this link.

May 31- Memorial Day, All Schools and Offices Closed

June 3- Last Day of School for all schools! 

June 4- Arcadia High School Graduation

下午好,阿卡迪亚统一家庭与社区,

 

当我们今天结束教师鉴赏,国家护士和学校营养员工周时,我们继续庆祝并感谢我们杰出的员工所做的工作,这些工作对我们的健康,安全和成功至关重要。特别感谢本周我们的老师,营养人员和护士英雄!如果有机会,请务必感谢他们。

我们还想花一点时间为我们的家人提供有关最新信息的另一种更新。

 

洛杉矶县现在处于黄色阶层

截至昨天,洛杉矶县已正式进入该州分级系统的“黄色阶层”。随着案件的持续减少和等级地位的进一步下降,限制不断减少。例如,现在餐馆,体育馆,博物馆等的容量已增加。您可以通过洛杉矶县公共卫生部的此新闻稿来阅读有关新限制的更多信息。请注意,即使降为Yellow Tier,Arcadia Unified仍将继续执行我们当前的健康和安全规程,尤其是在上学日以及本学年剩余时间的上课时间表。

 

阿卡迪亚高中毕业

我们很高兴地宣布,我们将于6月4日在圣塔安妮塔赛马场举行年度毕业典礼。物理疏散和其他安全规程将到位,同时客人的容量有限。我们也很高兴阿卡迪亚高中能够举办其他几项高级活动,以纪念和纪念我们杰出的2021级。AHS将继续与有关特定事件和活动的更多信息进行交流。

 

重要日期*更新*

我们已经更新了学年日历,以反映出在学校的最后一周没有任何“最少的日子”。由于在大流行期间调整了今年的上学日时间表,当前的时间表将在今年剩余时间内一直有效。因此,小学和初中没有最短上课时间。阿卡迪亚高中将有其期末考试时间表。我们临近学年末时,请直接从您的学校寻求进一步的沟通。

Good afternoon Arcadia Unified Families and Community,

As we head toward the end of April, we wanted to provide another brief update and information for everyone. 

 

Next Year Virtual Option and Survey 

As we mentioned in March and previous Coronavirus Updates, we are planning for a full reopening next school year. In addition to our return to normal school offerings, we will be offering a virtual option through Rancho Learning Center, which is home to many of our other alternative educational programs, such as our independent study program. An interest survey will be sent to families by mid-May. This survey and feedback opportunity for families will help hone this virtual option further to ensure we continue to meet the needs of our students and families. If you are interested in an alternative virtual offering for next school year, please look for the survey in mid-May and complete it as soon as possible. You can learn more about Rancho Learning Center in this “School Spotlight” video, which was presented at our most recent board of education meeting.

With all of our schools now back open for the in-person learning option, we have gathered over 460 photos for these most historic #ArcadiaFirstDay returns, which have truly captured the excitement of our campuses and unique times we live in. You can access our 2021 School Reopening #ArcadiaFirstDay Facebook Photo Album here.

Coronavirus Update 42 - Latest Information Published Friday, April 16, at 3:30 p.m.

 

Good afternoon Arcadia Unified Families and Community,

 

We hope this message finds you and your family well. It’s been an exciting and historic week throughout the district as we opened our elementary schools for the first time in over a year and as we get set to welcome some of our middle and high school students back next week for the in-person learning option. We want to take a brief moment to recognize our remarkable staff for all they have done to prepare for both the in-person return to campus, as well as for our virtual learning. We are incredibly proud of our staff for all their dedication, hard work, flexibility, ingenuity, and care they have shown to help our students adjust once again. We are also so proud and appreciative of our students and parents for their continued resolve and support. We sincerely thank all of you. 

 

Elementary Schools

As mentioned above, all of our elementary schools re-opened for the in-person option on Monday. The new procedures for the on-campus option went very well from day one and continued to improve with minor adjustments throughout the week. We were pleasantly surprised to hear one of our own parents share her positive experience on KPCC radio. A big thanks to Melissa for her kind words. You can submit some kind words of your own for our staff and can find more info on how to do that in the “Nice Notes” section below. Continue to check your email/communications directly from your school for further details and more information. 

 

Middle and High School    

All of our middle and high schools open for the in-person return to campus option on Tuesday. We wish them the best of luck for another historic #ArcadiaFirstDay. You can get a sneak peek of what our campuses look like now in this AUSD Safety Measures and Protocols video. Here’s another comprehensive inside look at the planning process for our return to schools as written by two of our AUSD Digital Communications Interns. Be sure to check your email/communications directly from your school for additional details. 

 

State Testing

On April 2, the California State Board of Education requested a flexibility waiver from the U.S. Department of Education to allow for flexibility of the Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBA), CA Science Test (CAST), and CA Alternate Assessments (CAA). California requested that districts be allowed to use local assessments in place of the state assessment, when applicable. On April 6, the U.S. Department of Education granted California this flexibility. Arcadia Unified will exercise the option to use local assessments in elementary and middle grades and the Smarter Balanced Assessments for 11th grade high school students. 11th grade students will begin testing this month on April 19. Grades 3-8 will complete their local assessments next month in May. 

 

Grades 3 - 8  

  • Renaissance STAR Math and Reading Assessments

 

Grade 11 

  • Smarter Balanced Assessments remotely for both ELA and Math 

 

 #ArcadiaFirstDay

As of today, we have gathered over 250 photos for this most historic #ArcadiaFirstDay, which have truly captured the sentiments of excitement mentioned above. You can access our 2021 School Reopening #ArcadiaFirstDay Facebook Photo Album Here. Please feel free to email any #ArcadiaFirstDay photos you didn’t get the chance to share yet or that you will take next week to news@ausd.net, and we will add your photos to our album!

 

Don’t forget to Like and Follow our Facebook page to see your photos in action, important updates, such as our Coronavirus Updates, and more throughout the year, including emergency notifications. 

 

Nice Notes (Please Consider)

In an effort to recognize our amazing teachers and staff during the pandemic, and since we have been unable to host our typical staff appreciation events this year, we have created “Nice Notes” to help show appreciation and gratitude for our remarkable staff. If you would like to join us in helping show some #AUSDAppreciation for our wonderful Arcadia Unified team members by sending a Nice Note of appreciation, you can easily do so with our Google Form here. Please note that submissions must be between 75-150 words in order to be considered. You can view the beautiful, uplifting Nice Notes already submitted honoring our education heroes here or on our Facebook page.  

 

Important Dates

April 20- Middle and High High School campuses reopen for in-person instruction. Virtual education still remains an option. All Mondays, starting April 19, will be virtual instruction for all middle and high school students. 

May 31- Memorial Day, All Schools Closed

June 1- Minimum Day for Arcadia High School 

June 2- Minimum Day for all elementary, middle, and high schools

June 3- Minimum Day for all elementary, middle, and high schools

June 3- Last Day of School for all schools!

冠状病毒更新42-最新信息

 

下午好,阿卡迪亚统一家庭与社区,

我们希望此消息对您和您的家人有帮助。这是整个学区激动人心且具有历史意义的一周,这是我们一年多来第一次开设小学,并且下周我们将欢迎部分初中和高中学生回来参加面对面学习,这是一个激动人心且具有历史意义的一周。我们想花一点时间来感谢我们杰出的员工,他们为亲自返回校园以及为我们的虚拟学习所做的一切准备。我们为全体教职员工表现出的奉献精神,辛勤工作,灵活性,独创性和悉心帮助我们的学生再次适应而感到无比自豪。我们也为我们的学生和家长的坚定和感激而感到自豪和感谢。我们衷心感谢大家。

 

小学

如上所述,我们所有的小学都在周一重新开放了面对面的选择。校园选项的新程序从第一天开始就运行良好,并且随着一周的细微调整而不断改进。听到我们自己的父母之一分享她在KPCC广播中的积极经历,我们感到非常惊讶。非常感谢Melissa的客气话。您可以为我们的员工提交一些自己喜欢的单词,并可以在下面的“注意事项”部分中找到有关如何执行此操作的更多信息。继续直接从学校检查您的电子邮件/通讯,以获取更多详细信息和更多信息。

 

初中和高中

我们所有的中学和高中都将在星期二开放,以面对面的方式返回校园。我们希望他们在另一个具有历史意义的#ArcadiaFirstDay取得好运。在此AUSD安全措施和协议视频中,您可以窥见我们的校园现在的样子。这是由我们的两名AUSD数字通信实习生撰写的关于返校计划过程的另一种全面内部看法。请确保直接从学校检查您的电子邮件/通讯,以获取更多详细信息。

 

状态测试

4月2日,加利福尼亚州教育委员会要求美国教育部放弃灵活性,以允许更智能平衡评估(SBA),CA科学测验(CAST)和CA替代评估(CAA)的灵活性。加利福尼亚州要求在适用的情况下允许各地区使用当地评估代替州评估。 4月6日,美国教育部授予了加州这种灵活性。 Arcadia Unified将行使选择权,以便在小学和中学年级使用本地评估,并为11年级的高中学生使用智能平衡评估。 11年级的学生将于本月4月19日开始测试。3-8年级的学生将在下个月的5月完成他们的本地评估。

 

3-8年级

文艺复兴时期的STAR数学和阅读评估

 

11年级

Coronavirus Update 41 - Latest Information Published Friday, April 9, at 5:34 p.m.

 

Good afternoon Arcadia Unified Families and Community,

 

We hope you are enjoying your Spring Break! While it’s been a week of rest and relaxation for some, many of our incredible staff have been working all week to help ensure a safe return to campus for those students and families who are opting to do so. All of our elementary schools will be open on Monday, April 12, for the first time in over a year. The following week, our middle schools and high school will follow suit. We are so proud of our staff for the remarkable job they’ve done ensuring we re-open our campuses as safely as possible. Speaking of pride, we are very proud of our Dana Middle School Mariners for earning a spot in the 2021 California Distinguished Schools program. Read more about this exciting recognition here.

 

Safety Measures and Practices 

With the final touches taking place this week, our staff has been working remarkably hard, putting in long hours for months to help prepare for a safe return to school. Here’s another sneak peek video for a brief preview of many of the safety measures and protocols taking place at our schools and a look at what you can expect for those who will be returning to campus soon. Another one of the safety investments we have made is the purchasing of 45 high-powered Electrostatic Disinfectant Sprayers. You can see how they operate and learn more in this video as you watch the sprayer being used at one of our schools. For more safety and health protocols, details, and plans, please visit our dedicated Coronavirus webpage.  

 

Safety Measures

 

Health Screening Information

As recommended by the LA County Department of Public Health, all students and staff at Arcadia Unified School District who are returning to in-person learning will be required to complete a daily health screening to reduce the likelihood of an exposure at one of our campuses. Our screening platform is both secure and easy to use, and it will help streamline the health screening process. If your elementary child is returning to campus, you should have received an email with detailed instructions, and you can try the new screening system now if you would like. You may also access and practice using our health screening platform here. If your elementary student is returning to campus and you did not receive an email about our new health screening platform, you can email healthservices@ausd.net. For students who are returning to middle or high school, you will receive detailed instructions in the coming week.

 

In addition, as our team puts the finishing touches on our health and safety measures for a safe and happy welcome back for our students, we need your help too. Please take a moment to review with and remind your students about how to protect themselves and others from the spread of COVID-19. You can also watch this animated video with your students about how to properly wear a face covering. We are better together, and working together to do our part will help make all of the difference in ensuring everyone’s health and safety. 

 

Technology Upgrades Ahead of Schedule

Our Technology and Information Services (TIS) team is ahead of schedule and will have every technology upgrade completed in all 11 of our schools by Monday. That means our TIS team has upgraded 400 teacher workstations in just nine days, and our Maintenance team has supported by installing 300 new access points in that same amount of time. Staff from departments across our district have pitched in to lend their important time and helping hands. We could not be more impressed or thankful for this dedication shown by all of our team. You can take a look at the new technology upgrades in this video

 

As we enter into another major transition in our learning environments with brand new technology upgrades, we expect there will be inevitable glitches and issues as everyone adapts. Thank you in advance for your patience and grace. We know our remarkable teachers and resilient students and staff will quickly work through any issues they may face.

 

LA County Travel Advisory and Guidance Update

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health recently revised its travel advisory and guidance to align with the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The updated guidance applies prospectively as of April 5, and states in part:

 

  • “Because fully vaccinated travelers are less likely to get and spread COVID-19, persons who are fully vaccinated can now travel provided they take precautions and follow safety recommendations.”

 

  • “Fully vaccinated persons may travel but should continue to take precautions. If asymptomatic, no quarantine or testing is needed upon return.”

 

  • “Definition of Fully Vaccinated:  A person is considered fully vaccinated >2 weeks following the receipt of: 
    • the second dose in a 2-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna)
    • one dose of a single-dose vaccine (Johnson and Johnson/Janssen).”

 

The full advisory can be accessed here. As a reminder, Arcadia Unified does not have the authority or jurisdiction to monitor travel. We simply ask that all families and staff follow LA County travel guidelines to help ensure a smooth and safe transition to in-person learning after Spring Break and moving forward. Please contact the LA County Department of Public Health for any questions about its travel guidance and guidelines.  

 

Commitment to Communications

As always, we remain committed to updating our dedicated Coronavirus webpage with new resources and information. You can view this communication, our 41st, (in English and Chinese) and all the previous updates we have sent to all parents and staff on our website.

冠状病毒更新41-最新信息

 

下午好,阿卡迪亚统一家庭与社区,

 

希望您度过了春假!对于某些人来说,这已经是一个星期的休息和放松,但我们令人难以置信的许多工作人员整周都在努力工作,以确保那些愿意这样做的学生和家庭安全返回校园。我们所有的小学都将于4月12日星期一开放,这是一年多来的第一次。接下来的一周,我们的中学和高中将紧随其后。我们为员工所做的出色工作感到自豪,以确保我们尽可能安全地重新开放校园。说到自豪,我们为我们的达纳中学水手队在2021年加州杰出学校计划中获得一席之地而感到自豪。在此处阅读有关此令人兴奋的认可的更多信息

 

安全措施与实践

在本周进行最后的接触后,我们的员工一直在非常努力地工作,花了几个月的时间来帮助您准备安全返回学校。这是另一个偷看的视频,简要介绍了我们学校正在采取的许多安全措施和规程,并展望了那些不久将重返校园的人们的期望。我们进行的另一项安全投资是购买45台大功率静电消毒喷雾器。当您观看我们其中一所学校使用的喷雾器时,您可以在视频中看到它们的操作方式并学到更多。有关更多安全和健康规程,详细信息和计划,请访问我们专用的冠状病毒网页

 

健康检查信息

根据洛杉矶县公共卫生部门的建议,所有需要返回亲自学习的阿卡迪亚联合学区的学生和教职员工都必须完成日常健康检查,以减少在我们的一个校园内暴露的可能性。我们的筛查平台既安全又易于使用,将有助于简化健康筛查流程。如果您的小孩子正返回校园,则应该已经收到一封包含详细说明的电子邮件,并且您可以根据需要尝试使用新的筛查系统。您也可以在此处访问和使用我们的健康检查平台进行练习healthservices@ausd.net

 

此外,由于我们的团队对我们的健康和安全措施进行了最后润饰,以期为学生带来安全快乐的欢迎,我们也需要您的帮助。请花一点时间与进行评论,并提醒您的学生如何保护自己和他人免受COVID-19的传播您还可以和学生一起观看有关如何正确戴面罩的动画视频。我们在一起会更好,共同努力将有助于确保所有人的健康和安全。

 

洛杉矶县旅行咨询和指南更新

洛杉矶县公共卫生部最近修改了其旅行咨询和指南,以与疾病控制中心(CDC)的建议保持一致。更新的指南从4月5日起适用,部分声明:

 

  • “由于完全接种疫苗的旅行者不太可能传播COVID-19,因此,只要采取预防措施并遵守安全建议,完全接种疫苗的人员现在就可以旅行。”

 

  • “完全接种疫苗的人可以旅行,但应继续采取预防措施。如果无症状,返回时无需检疫或检测。”

 

  • “完全接种疫苗的定义:在收到以下信息后> 2周,该人被视为完全接种疫苗:
    • 2剂系列的第二剂(Pfizer-BioNTech或Moderna)
    • 一剂单剂疫苗(约翰逊和约翰逊/詹森)。”

 

完整的建议可以在这里访问。提醒一下,Arcadia Unified没有权限或权限来监视旅行。我们只是要求所有家庭和员工遵循洛杉矶县的旅行指南,以确保春假后并向前发展,从而确保平稳,安全地过渡到亲自学习。如果对旅行指南和指南有任何疑问,请联系洛杉矶县公共卫生局。

Coronavirus Update 38 - Latest Information Published Friday, March 19, at 3:29 p.m.

 

Good afternoon Arcadia Unified Families and Community,

 

We hope you had a nice week and have an enjoyable weekend ahead. We wanted to touch base again and provide you with the latest information and resources surrounding the reopening of our schools. We are incredibly proud of all of our teachers and staff who are working so hard and diligently to provide both in-person and virtual learning environments for our students and families. We also express our sincere appreciation and gratitude to our students and families who continue to support everyone and adapt to the evolving circumstances. 

 

Elementary Schools

Our teams continue to work on the multitude of logistics to ensure a safe reopening in-person option for our students on April 12. Thanks to our parents for responding to the surveys and helping with this important process. Specific schedules for drop-off and pick-up will be sent by the end of next week from your specific school. For the latest information and updates for our elementary schools, you can visit this webpage. You can look for more information coming directly from your school in the coming weeks as we get closer to April 12.

 

Middle and High Schools

Similar to our elementary schools, our middle and high schools continue to make great progress toward the in-person learning option, which will begin by April 19. Schedules for middle school will be sent by the end of next week from your school. As mentioned in Update 37, the instructional models and schedules at each school will be determined by the individual School’s Site Leadership Team. Each school’s leadership team or council consists of students, parents, teachers, and administrators. This process is similar to the one used to create the school’s current virtual learning models. You can anticipate more information coming directly from your school in the coming weeks as we get closer to April 19. For more resources and information about middle and high schools reopening, you can visit this webpage

 

New Resources

We continue to try and provide as much information and resources as possible to help with the changing guidelines and many questions that come with reopening our schools. We have created an Arcadia Unified Frequently Asked Questions document that we will continue to add to and update as information becomes available and as changes occur. Many of the frequently asked questions were garnered by our most recent ThoughtExchange forums. You can see the answers to our most recent ThoughtExchange in this video update. As mentioned in Update 37 last week, in addition to the new reopening models website, we have also created a COVID-19 Dashboard to ensure transparent and accurate information regarding COVID-19 cases within our district. We have also posted another safety plan, the COVID-19 Safety Plan (CSP) on our website. All of these resources and links can be found and accessed from our Coronavirus Webpage, which also hosts our most recent board meetings, this and all Coronavirus Updates, and other resources.

 

Travel Guidelines Via the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health

As Spring Break (April 5-9) approaches, as of this Update, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) states the following regarding travel and quarantines:

 

“If you do travel into Los Angeles County from outside of California, you need to self-quarantine for 10 days after you arrive and must limit your interactions to people in your household/people with whom you live. If you travel into Los Angeles County solely for essential work purposes, you need to still self-quarantine outside of your work for 10 days and ensure you do not mix with others outside of those necessary to conduct your essential work.”

 

You can read more from the LACDPH on its “Travel Advisory and Guidance” here. AUSD has no authority nor jurisdiction to monitor travel. We simply ask that all families and staff follow County travel guidelines to help ensure a smooth and safe transition to in-person learning after Spring Break. Please contact LACDPH for more information or questions about LACDPH travel guidelines.   

 

Commitment to Communications

As always, we remain committed to updating our dedicated Coronavirus webpage with new resources and information. You can view this communication, our 38th, (in English and Chinese) and all the previous updates we have sent to all parents and staff on our website. If you or someone you know needs additional language support, please let us know. We also encourage you to follow our Facebook page and Twitter page, where we will share additional non-urgent information and Arcadia Unified news. You can sign up for our Arcadia Unified Community Email List here, and/or encourage others to do so to ensure receipt of our communications. Thank you all so much for your continued support and positivity.  

 

Sincerely,

Arcadia Unified School District 

 

冠状病毒更新38-最新信息

 

下午好,阿卡迪亚统一家庭与社区,

 

希望您度过愉快的一周,祝您周末愉快。我们希望再次与我们联系,为您提供有关重新开放学校的最新信息和资源。我们为全体老师和员工付出如此辛勤而勤奋的工作,以为我们的学生和家庭提供面对面和虚拟的学习环境而感到无比自豪。我们也对继续支持所有人并适应不断变化的环境的学生和家庭表示诚挚的感谢和谢意。

 

小学

我们的团队将继续进行大量的后勤工作,以确保4月12日为我们的学生提供一个安全的重新开门亲自就读的选择。感谢我们的父母对调查做出的回应,并为这一重要过程提供了帮助。特定的接送时间表将在下周底从您的学校寄出。有关我们小学的最新信息和更新,请访问此页面。随着我们临近4月12日,您可以在接下来的几周内直接从学校获得更多信息。

初中和高中

与小学类似,我们的初中和高中继续在面向个人学习的选择方面取得巨大进步,该学习计划将于4月19日开始。中学的时间表将于下周底从您的学校发送出去。如更新37中所述,每所学校的教学模式和时间表将由学校的站点领导团队确定。每个学校的领导小组或理事会由学生,家长,老师和行政人员组成。此过程类似于用于创建学校当前虚拟学习模型的过程。随着我们临近4月19日,您可以预期在接下来的几周内将有更多直接来自您学校的信息。有关重新开放中学和高中的更多资源和信息,请访问此页面

 

新资源

我们将继续尝试并提供尽可能多的信息和资源,以帮助不断变化的指南和重新开放学校时带来的许多问题。我们已经创建了一个Arcadia统一常见问题文档,随着信息变得可用以及发生更改,我们将继续对其进行添加和更新。我们最近的ThoughtExchange论坛收集了许多常见问题。您可以在此视频更新中看到我们最新的ThoughtExchange的答案。如上周更新37中所述,除了新的重新开放模型网站外,我们还创建了一个COVID-19仪表板,以确保有关本地区内COVID-19案例的信息透明,准确。我们还在我们的网站上发布了另一个安全计划,即COVID-19安全计划(CSP)。所有这些资源和链接都可以在我们的冠状病毒网页上找到和访问,该网页还主持了我们最近的董事会会议,本次会议以及所有冠状病毒更新以及其他资源。

 

通过洛杉矶县公共卫生部的旅行指南

随着春假(4月4日至8日)的临近,截至本更新,洛杉矶县公共卫生局(LACDPH)声明了以下有关旅行和隔离的内容:

 

“如果您确实是从加利福尼亚州以外的地方去洛杉矶县旅行,则必须在到达后进行10天的自我隔离,并且必须将互动仅限于家庭成员/与之居住的人。如果您仅出于基本工作目的而去洛杉矶县旅行,则您需要在工作之外继续自我隔离10天,并确保不要与进行基本工作所必需的其他人混在一起。”

 

您可以从LACDPH的“旅行咨询和指导”中了解更多信息。 AUSD没有权力或管辖权来监控旅行。我们只是要求所有家庭和员工遵循县旅行指南,以确保春假后平稳,安全地过渡到亲自学习。请联系LACDPH以获取更多信息或有关LACDPH出行指南的问题。

 

沟通承诺

与往常一样,我们将继续致力于使用新的资源和信息来更新专用的冠状病毒网页。您可以在我们的网站上查看此通讯,第38篇(中英文)以及我们已发送给所有父母和工作人员的所有以前的更新。如果您或您认识的人需要其他语言支持,请告知我们。我们也鼓励您关注我们的Facebook页面和Twitter页面,我们将在其中共享其他非紧急信息和Arcadia Unified新闻。您可以在此处注册我们的Arcadia统一社区电子邮件列表,和/或鼓励其他人这样做以确保收到我们的通信。非常感谢您一直以来的支持和积极态度。

Coronavirus Update 37 - Middle and High Schools Reopening Published Friday, March 12, 7:19 p.m.

 

Good evening Arcadia Unified Families and Community, 

 

We hope everyone is doing well as we head into the three-day weekend. As we continue to progress toward reopening our schools and anticipate entering the state’s less restrictive Red Tier, we wanted to provide another update with new information and resources. 

 

Middle and High School Reopening Dates

With county and state health restrictions and guidelines continuing to change, we anticipate reopening our middle and high schools by April 19. The instructional models and schedules at each school will be determined by the individual School’s Site Leadership Team. Each school’s leadership team or council consists of students, parents, teachers, and administrators. This process will be similar to the one used to create the school’s current virtual learning models. Parent surveys have already been sent to ask parents their preference for returning to in-person instruction or remaining virtual. These survey results will help determine each school’s new in-person and virtual learning models. We greatly thank all of our parents who have provided their feedback. More information regarding schedules will be updated on our newly created Roadmap to Reopening website. Schedule information will also be posted on school websites when the scheduling process is complete and parents are informed. Just to reiterate, while we are preparing for students and staff to return to campuses, we will also continue to provide a remote virtual learning environment for those students and families who would prefer that. We are greatly appreciative of our teachers and staff who have and continue to work very hard to provide both options. 

 

Elementary School Instructional Model Update

Based on ongoing feedback provided by stakeholders since May 2020, Arcadia Unified School District’s administration, principals, and members from the Arcadia Teachers Union developed three model schedules that provide the most viable options to offer both virtual and in-person instruction, while meeting the rigorous mandates for allowing students and staff on campus. Model schedules were also created with instructional minute requirements set by the California Department of Education for the 2020-21 school year. 

 

The most recent parent interest survey was sent March 1, with results shared back to parents on March 3. A teacher survey was sent Monday, and approximately 77% of 166 teachers who responded indicated that they prefer Model 1 (simultaneous synchronous model). The committee met on March 3 and March 5 to determine the best hybrid models (result: 3). The committee met again today to finalize everything, including parent communication about options. Parents will be asked to commit to one option. This survey will be sent out today and will remain open until Wednesday. To read and learn more about the potential elementary models, you can visit the elementary school reopening webpage here

 

Elementary After School Care For Free through Right at School

In continued preparation for reopening our elementary schools on April 12, we are excited to announce free after-school care for those families electing to return their students to in-person instruction. We will be paying for Right at School’s after-school program as an additional support for the scheduling needs of families that select in-person learning for the remainder of this school year. We are also offering this service to our remarkable staff. Right at School will be reaching out to families soon with more information. 

 

New Resources

As we continue to provide new information and resources, we wanted to share a few more new resources with you. In addition to the new reopening models website, we have also created a COVID-19 Dashboard to ensure transparent and accurate information regarding COVID-19 cases within our district. We have also posted another safety plan, the COVID-19 Safety Plan (CSP) on our website. All of these resources and links can be found and accessed from our Coronavirus Webpage, which also hosts our most recent board meetings, this and all Coronavirus Updates, and other resources. In addition to the current FAQs on our site, we will be adding another set next week.         

 

ThoughtExchange Q&A Opportunity

With this latest update and information, we know that there will be additional questions people have. In order to continue to help answer questions and receive feedback, we will be providing another opportunity to ask questions via ThoughtExchange. You can access the ThoughtExchange now if you would like, and we will leave it open for questions until Tuesday morning, March 16, at 10:00 a.m. The question is, “With opening dates for all our schools now announced, what are your questions regarding schools reopening?” You can leave a question, or since others may have already entered similar questions, feel free to skip ahead to rating the ones you agree or disagree with. Our team will address as many of these questions as possible, and we will send out the results via video by Tuesday evening for people to view at their convenience.  

 

Commitment to Communications

As always, we remain committed to updating our dedicated Coronavirus webpage with new resources and information. You can view this communication, our 37th, (in English and Chinese) and all the previous updates we have sent to all parents and staff on our website. If you or someone you know needs additional language support, please let us know. We also encourage you to follow our Facebook page and Twitter page, where we will share additional non-urgent information and Arcadia Unified news. You can sign up for our Arcadia Unified Community Email List here, and/or encourage others to do so to ensure receipt of our communications. Thank you all so much for your continued positivity and support.  

 

Sincerely,

冠状病毒更新37-中学和高中重新开放

 

晚上好,阿卡迪亚统一家庭和社区,

 

我们希望每个人在进入为期三天的周末时都过得不错。随着我们继续朝着重新开放学校的方向前进,并期望进入该州限制较少的Red Tier,我们希望提供新的信息和资源来进行另一次更新。

 

初中和高中重新开放日期

随着县和州健康限制和指南的变化,我们预计4月19日将重新开放中学和高中。每所学校的教学模式和时间表将由学校的站点领导团队决定。每个学校的领导小组或理事会由学生,家长,老师和行政人员组成。此过程将类似于用于创建学校当前虚拟学习模型的过程。家长调查已发送给父母,要求他们选择返回亲身指导或保持虚拟状态的偏好。这些调查结果将有助于确定每所学校的新的面对面和虚拟学习模式。我们非常感谢所有提供反馈的父母。有关日程安排的更多信息将在我们新创建的“重新开放路线图”网站上进行更新。日程安排过程完成并通知家长后,日程安排信息也将发布在学校网站上。重申一下,在我们为学生和教职员工返回校园做准备的同时,我们还将继续为那些愿意的学生和家庭提供远程虚拟学习环境。我们非常感谢拥有并继续努力提供这两种选择的老师和员工。

 

小学教学模式更新

根据2020年5月以来利益相关者不断提供的反馈意见,阿卡迪亚联合学区的行政部门,校长和阿卡迪亚教师联盟的成员制定了三种模式时间表,这些时间表提供了最可行的选择,既可以提供虚拟又可以亲自授课,同时又可以满足严格的要求。允许学生和教职员工进入校园的规定。还根据加州教育部为2020-21学年设定的教学分钟要求创建了模型时间表。

 

最近一次的家长兴趣调查于3月1日发送,结果于3月3日共享给父母。周一进行了教师调查,在166位回答的教师中,大约77%的学生表示他们更喜欢Model 1(同时同步模型)。该委员会于3月3日和3月5日举行会议,确定最佳的混合动力车型(结果:3)。该委员会今天再次举行会议,敲定一切,包括父母关于选择权的沟通。家长将被要求选择一种选择。该调查将在今天发送出去,并将一直开放到星期三。要阅读并了解有关潜在基本模型的更多信息,您可以在此处访问小学重新开放网页

 

放学后可免费上小学课后托儿服务

为了继续为4月12日重新开放小学做准备,我们很高兴宣布为那些选择让学生接受当面教学的家庭免费提供课后照顾。我们将为“在学校就读”课后计划付费,作为对在本学年剩余时间中选择亲自学习的家庭日程安排的额外支持。我们还为我们杰出的员工提供这项服务。 “在学校就读”很快就会与家庭联系,提供更多信息。

 

新资源

随着我们继续提供新的信息和资源,我们希望与您共享更多新资源。除了新的重新开放模型网站之外,我们还创建了一个COVID-19仪表板,以确保有关本地区内COVID-19案例的信息透明,准确。我们还在我们的网站上发布了另一个安全计划,即COVID-19安全计划(CSP)。所有这些资源和链接都可以在我们的冠状病毒网页上找到和访问,该网页还主持了我们最近的董事会会议,本次会议以及所有冠状病毒更新以及其他资源。除了我们网站上当前的常见问题解答外,我们还将在下周添加另一套常见问题解答。

 

ThoughtExchange问​​答机会

有了最新的更新和信息,我们知道人们还会有其他问题。为了继续帮助回答问题并获得反馈,我们将提供另一个通过ThoughtExchange提问的机会。如果愿意,您可以立即访问ThoughtExchange,我们将在3月16日(星期二)上午10:00之前开放问题解答。问题是:“现在我们所有学校的开放日期都宣布了,您有什么问题?关于学校重新开放?”您可以提出一个问题,或者由于其他人可能已经输入了类似的问题,请随时跳过以对您同意或不同意的问题进行评分。我们的团队将尽可能解决这些问题,我们将在星期二晚上通过视频发送结果,以方便人们查看。

 

沟通承诺

与往常一样,我们将继续致力于使用新的资源和信息来更新专用的冠状病毒网页。您可以在我们的网站上查看此通讯,我们的第37条(中英文)以及我们已发送给所有父母和工作人员的所有以前的更新。如果您或您认识的人需要其他语言支持,请告知我们。我们也鼓励您关注我们的Facebook页面和Twitter页面,我们将在其中共享其他非紧急信息和Arcadia Unified新闻。您可以在此处注册我们的Arcadia统一社区电子邮件列表,和/或鼓励其他人这样做以确保收到我们的通信。非常感谢您一直以来的积极态度和支持。

Update 34 - The Path to Reopening Published Tuesday, February 16, 2021, 4:52 p.m.; updated Chinese translation published, Thursday, February 18, 2021, 8:17 p.m.

 

Good afternoon Arcadia Unified Families and Community,

 

We hope everyone is doing well and had an enjoyable extended Presidents’ Day weekend. As the COVID-19 case rate slowly decreases and the news headlines about schools reopening increase, we wanted to send an update with a breakdown of the latest information and communicate with all of you where we are on our path to returning our students to campus. While the rapidly changing headlines of schools potentially being able to reopen are exciting for many of our families, we also recognize that with the vaccine shortage and continued uncertainty of this ever-evolving pandemic, this news is unsettling for many of our families. Knowing that there are mixed emotions within our own community, our priorities and guiding principles that have helped us navigate the pandemic successfully will continue to guide us. We will continue to provide our students with an exceptional education thanks to our remarkable staff, and we will remain empathetic and consistent as we continue on our path to reopening our schools. 

 

Priorities and Guiding Principles to Reopening Schools

  • Continuing to make student, staff, and community health and safety our highest priority
  • Ensuring a robust and consistent learning environment for our students with as few disruptions as possible
  • Supporting the vast needs of our diverse students, staff, and community
  • Allowing our staff the opportunity to be vaccinated before returning to in-person learning, which will also help minimize the risk of learning loss due to a quarantine or shutdown ordered by the health department per current guidelines
  • Remaining thoughtful, strategic, and patient knowing the federal, state, and county guidelines and protocols evolve and change rapidly as more data and information is gained and decisions are adjusted
  • Continue to bring our Arcadia Community together by collaborating with our teachers, staff, bargaining units, and families
  • Social-emotional wellbeing of our students and staff 

 

Update on Vaccines for Arcadia Unified Staff and City of Hope Partnership

Our team has been working diligently to ensure our staff will have the opportunity to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible, and we have been exploring many different avenues and possibilities to accomplish this. We have exciting news on this important component of our path to reopening schools, as we are in the process of finalizing a partnership with the City of Hope and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH). This partnership will help prioritize our staff in receiving the vaccine as soon as possible. The first opportunity for our staff to receive the vaccine will be open to our staff who are 65 or older and school district health care providers. This could happen as soon as this weekend. The second dose for these participants is projected to be available starting as early as March 20 and will be scheduled at the time they receive their first dose. As there is still a limited supply of vaccines in our area, this is great news, but these estimated dates could change as dictated by the supply and other factors.   

 

Opportunity for On-Campus Enrichment and Social-Emotional Activities for Some Elementary Students Soon and Learning Pods Via Right at School  

As we continue to progress toward some TK-5 students returning to campus for in-person instruction, we are currently working on a plan to have some elementary students return to campus in the afternoon for enrichment, physical activities, and social-emotional opportunities within the next few weeks. We are excited to continue to work on this with our Right at School partner and be able to help provide this opportunity for our students and families. Once the final details are in place, we will communicate those with eligible elementary families. Beyond this new afternoon elementary student engagement opportunity, on-campus learning pods remain available for our elementary students via our Right at School partner. These learning pods currently allow elementary students to be on campus during the school day while receiving instruction virtually from their teacher. 

 

Latest News and Guidelines from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health

Last night (Monday/Presidents’ Day), the LACDPH issued a brief press release saying in part, “The state permits elementary schools to reopen as soon as we reach an adjusted case rate of 25 per 100,000. We are informing Los Angeles County schools tonight via an emailed letter that we expect to announce we have reached this threshold effective Tuesday, February 16.” You can read the press release in its entirety here. While this is an encouraging milestone in our path to reopening schools, there are still many details and guidelines that we are awaiting from the LACDPH to ensure we continue on a consistent and safe path back to campus. You can view the LACDPH “Reopening Protocols for K-12 Schools” here

 

COVID-19 Prevention Program

Since closing our schools on March 20, 2020, our staff has been working tirelessly to ensure our students’ education remains at the highest possible level, while simultaneously working to ensure a safe return to school as soon as possible. When the time comes to return our students and staff to campus, we want to ensure that we have all the safety measures, protocols, and PPE properly designated and ready to implement. A significant portion of our safe path to reopening is our COVID-19 Prevention Program, which was completed in December and you can view here. 

 

Next Steps to Continue Our Path to Reopening Schools 

As we remain hopeful and cautiously optimistic as the cases of COVID-19 drop, we have several exciting and crucial steps that will begin to happen in the coming weeks that we wanted to share with you.  

 

  • Latest School Reopening Plan by Tuesday, February 23, knowing the plan will be adjusted as guidelines and protocols change
  • Board of Education Meeting on Tuesday, February 23, where we will share our latest School Reopening plan and provide additional information from this Update 
  • Parent Survey will be sent to Arcadia Unified families to ensure input into how and when they prefer to return to campus
  • Vaccine progress and the latest medical data will be closely monitored 
  • Guideline Adjustments from the state and county will continue to be closely watched, and our School Reopening Plan will be updated and adjusted accordingly so that when we open our schools we can keep them open with as minimal disruptions as possible 

 

Commitment to Communications

As always, we remain committed to updating our dedicated Coronavirus webpage with new resources and information, as we did once again this week, with new FAQs and other resources you may find valuable. You can view this communication, our 34th, (in English and Chinese) and all the previous updates we have sent to all parents and staff on our website. If you or someone you know needs additional language support, please let us know. We also encourage you to follow our Facebook page and Twitter page, where we will share additional non-urgent information and Arcadia Unified news. You can sign up for our Arcadia Unified Community Email List here, and/or encourage others to do so to ensure receipt of our communications. Thank you all so much for your continued support of our students, staff, families, and community.  

 

Sincerely,

Arcadia Unified School District 

 

冠狀病毒第34次資訊更新——重新開放的路徑

 

亞凱迪亞聯合學區的家庭和社區,午安!

 

我們希望大家一切安好,並度過了一個愉快的總統日長週末。隨著COVID-19病例率的緩慢下降以及有關學校重新開放新聞頭條的增加,我們想發送最新資訊細目的更新,並與大家溝通我們目前在將學生帶回校園的路徑上所處的位置。  

 

儘管關於學校有可能重新開放且迅速變化的新聞頭條讓我們許多的家庭感到興奮,但我們也認識到,由於疫苗的短缺和這種不斷演變流行病的持續不確定性,這一消息令我們許多家庭感到不安。我們了解我們的社區存在著複雜的情緒,因此幫助我們成功駕馭這一流行病的優先事項和指導原則將繼續指導我們。我們將繼續為學生提供卓越的教育,這要感謝我們傑出的員工,在重新開放學校的路徑上,我們將繼續保持同理心和一致性。

 

重新開放學校的優先事項和指導原則

  • 繼續將學生、員工和社區的健康與安全作為我們的最高優先事項
  • 確保為學生提供一個強健、一致的學習環境,並儘可能減少干擾
  • 支持我們多元化學生、員工和社區的廣大需求
  • 讓我們的員工有機會在回到面對面學習之前接種疫苗,這也將有助於最大程度地降低因衛生部門根據當前指引下令隔離或關閉而導致學習損失的風險
  • 保持深思熟慮、有戰略性和耐心,並了解到聯邦、州和縣的指引和程序會隨著獲得更多數據和資訊以及決策的調整而迅速地發展和變化
  • 通過與老師、員工、談判單位和家庭的協作,繼續將我們的亞凱迪亞社區團結在一起
  • 學生和員工的社會情感福祉

 

亞凱迪亞聯合學區員工和City of Hope合作關係的疫苗最新情況

我們的團隊一直在努力工作,以確保我們的員工有機會儘快獲得COVID-19疫苗,我們一直在探索許多不同的途徑和可能性來實現這一目標。在重新開放學校路徑上的這一重要組成部分,我們有令人振奮的消息,因為我們正在最後確定與City of Hope以及洛杉磯縣公共衛生局(LACDPH)的合作關係。這種合作關係將有助於我們的員工儘快地優先接種疫苗。員工接種疫苗的第一機會將開放給 65 歲或以上的員工以及學區的衛生保健提供者。這最快可能會在本週末發生。這些參與者預計最早可於3月20日開始接種第二劑疫苗,他們接種第一劑疫苗時將安排預約。由於我們地區的疫苗供應仍然有限,因此這是個好消息,但這些估計的日期可能會根據供應量和其他因素而發生改變。

 

通過Right at School即將為一些小學生提供的校園內充實和社會情感活動的機會以及學習豆莢

隨著我們繼續朝著讓一些TK-5年級學生返回校園接受面對面教學的方向發展,我們目前正在制定一項在未來幾週內,為一些小學生提供在下午返回校園參與充實、體育活動和社交情感活動機會的計劃。我們很高興能繼續與我們的合作夥伴Right at School在這方面展開合作,為我們的學生和家庭提供這個機會。一旦最終細節到位後,我們將與符合條件的小學家庭溝通。除了這個新的下午小學生參與機會以外,我們的合作夥伴Right at School 仍將提供校園學習豆莢給小學的學生。這些學習豆莢目前允許小學生在上課日進入校園,同時接受老師虛擬的教學。

 

洛杉磯縣公共衛生部的最新消息和指引

昨晚(星期一/總統日),LACDPH發佈了簡短的新聞稿,其中部分的內容是,一旦我們達到每10萬人中有25例的調整病例率,州政府將允許小學重新開放。我們今晚將通過電子郵件通知洛杉磯縣的學校,我們預計宣佈2月16日(星期二)我們已經達到了這個門檻。您可以在此處閱讀完整的新聞稿。儘管這是我們重新開放學校路徑上的一個令人鼓舞的里程碑,但我們仍在等待LACDPH提供許多細節和指引,以確保我們繼續沿著一致且安全的路徑返回校園。您可以在此處查看LACDPH的“K-12年級學校重新開放程序”。

 

COVID-19預防計畫

自2020年3月20日學校關閉以來,我們的員工一直不懈努力,確保儘可能將我們學生的教育保持在最高水平,同時努力確保儘快安全地返回校園。當學生和員工返校時間到來的時候,我們要確保已正確指定所有安全措施、程序和個人防護用品,並做好實施的準備。在重新開放的安全路徑中很重要的一部分是我們的COVID-19預防計畫,該計畫已於12月完成,您可以在這裡查看

 

繼續我們重新開放學校路徑的下一步

隨著COVID-19病例的下降,我們保持滿懷希望和謹慎樂觀的同時,我們想與大家分享幾個將在未來幾週開始發生的令人興奮和關鍵的步驟。

 

  • 最新的學校重新開放計劃將於2月23日(星期二)之前發佈,並了解該計劃將隨著指引和程序的更改而進行調整
  • 教育委員會會議將於2月23日(星期二)召開,届時我們將分享我們最新的學校重新開放計畫,並提供本更新中的其他資訊
  • 我們將發送家長問卷調查給亞凱迪亞聯合學區的家庭,以確保獲得他們希望如何以及何時返回校園的意見
  • 我們將密切監測疫苗進展和最新醫療數據
  • 我們將繼續密切關注州和縣的指引調整,並且我們的學校重新開放計劃將進行相應的更新和調整,這樣當學校開放時,我們能在儘量減少干擾的情況下保持學校的開放

 

溝通的承諾

一如既往,我們將繼續致力於更新我們專用的冠狀病毒網頁,提供新的資源和資訊,正如我們本週再次做的一樣,提供您可能會發現有價值的新的常見問題解答和其他資源。您可以在我們的網站上查看此第34次的通訊(中英文),以及我們之前發送給所有家長和員工的通訊。如果您或您認識的人需要其他語言的支持,請讓我們知道。我們也鼓勵您關注我們的臉書網頁推特網頁,我們將在那裡分享其他非緊急的資訊和亞凱迪亞聯合學區新聞。您可以在此處登記加入我們的亞凱迪亞聯合學區社區電子郵件名單,和/或鼓勵其他人這樣做,以確保收到我們的通訊。非常感謝您對我們的學生、員工、家庭和社區的持續支持。

 

誠摯地,

亞凱迪亞聯合學區

Update 32 - Mental Health Resources Published Friday, December 11, 2020, 11:42 a.m.

 

We hope everyone is staying healthy and doing well as we get ready for our Winter Break. In fact, that’s what we are touching base about in this update as we all get ready for the holidays. As coronavirus cases continue to rise and we are in the midst of another Stay at Home order, we realize and are empathetic to the fact that stress and anxiety levels could also be on the rise. As expected, with the drastic rise in cases and increased hospitalizations, our focus will remain on Distance Learning and the wellbeing of our students, staff, and community for the foreseeable future. In that light, we wanted to remind our students and parents of the COVID-19 Mental Health and Wellness Support Resources webpage that we created to try and help.

 

COVID-19 Mental Health and Wellness Support and Resources Page (click here!)

The webpage consists of valuable tools and resources, such as “10 Self-Care Strategies for Teens,” “Teen Guide to Mental Health and Wellness,” breathing and meditation exercises, mindfulness art for teens, the “Happiness Lab,” a virtual calming room, free yoga, and phone numbers and websites to support hotlines. There is also a list of links to all of our school counseling websites as well as a link to the new Arcadia High School Wellness Center.    

 

Support

We want everyone to know that there is no need to struggle alone. We are here for you, and please continue to be there for each other. If you need someone to talk with about how you are feeling, please reach out to a friend, family member, AUSD teacher, AUSD staff member, AUSD counselor or administrator, or utilize one of the resources provided above. We have seen so much love and support during these difficult times when our schools have been closed and have been inspired by so many people willing to help. Even if you’re not in need of any support yourself, please think of someone who might be. Reach out to them by text, phone, or video. Simply say hello, check-in, offer support, or just share a laugh and a line of comfort. Our schools are physically closed, but our hearts remain wide open.
