• THIS WEEK AT A GLANCE

    For week of........          May 25, 2020

     

    PRINCIPAL PRO TIP

    Hello Parents, 

    My vision for 2020 definitely did not see Covid-19 and the associated Pandemic protocols coming down the pike.  The 8th grade trip, Awards Night, 8th Grade Dance, and the Promotion ceremony (not to mention any retirement ceremonies) all squashed by a wicked virus.  What swells my heart though is the strength and resiliency of our students who are doing their best to still master educational standards, maintain their strong relationships with friends and family, and to basically make the best of a very weird situation. 

    One way to make the best of this situation for our 8th graders is on May 26th, 2020 from 8:00 to 11:00, and again from Noon to 3:00 we will be having our pick up and drop off event!  While this may seem like minimalist, students can make the best of it by decorating the family car, dressing up, look forward to seeing some people (at a safe distance) that they have not seen in over 8 weeks!  All the staff have been invited, and it is our hope they will come in an cheer for their students! 

    The class of 2020 will be in every history book 15 years from now, and the future class of 2035 will study, The Great Covid -19 Pandemic the way I studied the Great Depression of 1939-1933 in the late 70s.  Our resilient students will come out of this stronger, smarter, and with some newly acquired computer skills they never thought they needed.  On a more Social-Emotional level I am seeing indications that many of our students are developing an appreciation of the school they remember and they are very grateful for those experiences and they look forward to “getting back to normal”. 

    Stay healthy my friends, 

     D. E. Anklam

    PRINCIPAL'S PRO TIP

     

    Good News and Bad News!  The good is we have a huge enrollment for next year; we have over 930 students represented in our data base with their Course Selection Documents entered!  However, the bad is only 432 of those student’s parents have actually REGISTERED for School Year 2020-2021 in Info-snap.  That means that the district office people think we only have 432 student coming to Mitchell Middle School next year!  This situation affects our staffing for teachers, campus monitors, clerical, counselors, pretty much every adult on this campus.  Please go to Info-snap and register today if you have not already done so.  Also, put out the word on social media that registering on Info-snap is a mandatory parental duty in all public schools every year!  Thank you

     

    In Corona Virus news Mitchell will be receiving three extra hand washing stations that will be placed near the cafeteria.  The hope is more kids will wash their hands more frequently if more hand washing stations are available.  Also, we will be doing our best to educate our students to implement the Governor’s Social Distancing protocols.

    • FCUSD'S COVID-19 Update: March 12, 2020
      • On March 11th, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that California public health officials issued an updated policy to protect public health and slow the spread of COVID-19, including guidance on large gatherings and events. Folsom Cordova schools are working closely at this moment with county public health officials and surrounding school districts to respond to the state's guidance. An update to all of our employees, families, and community members will be forthcoming. Thank you for your patience as we and all schools throughout California work to respond as quickly as possible to a rapidly evolving issue with the best information we have from expert agencies. https://www.fcusd.org/coronavirus

    Hello Parents,

     

    I am sure by now some of you heard that I will be retiring in June.  After 32 years and 9 weeks in this district I am opening up the next chapter in my life which I have not quite figured out yet.  There are grandson’s to get to know, my old house needs some serious remodeling, and I really want to spend some serious quality time with a wonderful old friend; my Specialized S-Works road bike.

    It’s been a wonderful journey, thank you

     

    D.E. Anklam

     ANNOUNCEMENTS.......      

     

    • PRINCIPAL PRO TIPS: 
      • Hello parents, it’s registration time again (yes you have to do this each and every year), and that means logging into “Info Snap”.  This process is in addition to the Course Selection Document you filled out with your student earlier in January.  If you have not completed Info Snap online your child is NOT registered for the 2020-2021 school year. Remember “registration is a snap, with Info Snap”!
      • Parents who filled out a School Choice form for MtMS by the due date of January 31, 2020, for the school year 2020-2021 are automatically choiced in to Mitchell; Congrats!  If you filled out a choice form after the January 31st due date you have been placed on a waiting list that is based on enrollment (your form has been date and time stamped, and we will use that data along with grade level to prioritize the wait list).
      • Please do not allow your students to come to school with toys that will distract them from their learning environments.  Toys like excessively large stuffed animals, water guns, clackers (I thought there were banned 20 years ago), and a wide array of electronics ranging from the musical to video gaming systems.  While these items may be harmless in the home setting, they are major disruptions to the classroom and they can often be a safety hazard.

       

    • MARAUDER REGISTRATION UPDATE: 
      • REMEMBER to complete your registration on line through the parent portal.  https://powerschool.fcusd.org/public/

     

    • MITCHELL ATHLETICS UPDATE:
      • Boys Volleyball Practice begins this week.  
      • Track begins next week.  Track meetings will be after school on March 3rd and 4th.

    • HEALTH UPDATE:
      • Dear families,
        Cold and flu season is here. Sometimes it is difficult to know when to keep students home and when to send them to school. The following guidelines can be used to help you determine when your student should stay home.
        Your child should stay home if:
        * Fever of 100.4 or higher without medication
        * Has more than one episode of vomiting or diarrhea
        * Your child is unable to participate in school due to:
        • Being tired
        • Lack of appetite
        • Frequently coughing or sneezing
        • Severe sore throat – especially if the sore throat is accompanied by a headache, stomach ache, or rash. If your child has these symptoms, call your doctor. The child may have strep throat without a fever.
        • Rashes that are itchy and scaly should be evaluated by a doctor before coming to school
        • Yellow or green discharge from eyes, ears, nose or any other part of the body
        • Pink eye (red, puffy, itchy eyes) need to be cleared by a doctor before coming to school
          24 hour rule:
      • Keep your child home until his/her fever has been gone for 24 hours without medication.
      • Keep your child home until 24 hours after the last episode of vomiting or diarrhea
      • Keep your child home until 24 hours after the first dose of antibiotics  f
        • For any illness beyond a cold or flu, please provide a doctor’s note stating that your student is not contagious and it is safe for him/her to return to school. 
        • In addition, please encourage your student(s) to wash their hands and cover their cough/sneeze!
    • Your help in preventing the spread of disease is greatly appreciated.
