    Principal's Weekly Message Posted 10/14/18

    Hello Playa Families!

    Welcome to week 10:
    A big thank you to PDR families that joined us for Walk to School Day!! Click (here) to view photos.
    As we come to a close of the first reporting period, I want to thank the teachers/and support staff for working so hard to ensure all students are engaged in daily lessons and for challenging students to reach their desired academic goals. Please note the Common Core State Standards are focusing on students being able to use critical thinking skills and strategies to solve problems as well as students being able to read independently and proficiently at grade level by the end of the school year.  This period will focus on the first 55 days of instruction for academic and social progress as you prepare for conferences next month.
    Health Update: We’ve had a few cases of head lice in the past two weeks.  I want to thank families that have contacted the school immediately to notify our staff. Please know that we do our best to prevent spreading but know there are steps to take for re-infestation:
    *Reduced head to head contact. Remind children not share hats or decorative headgear.
    * All bed linens should be laundered in hot water and placed in a hot dryer for the desired amount of time.
    * Toss snuggle items that may have been in contact during the time frame. (nits take 6 to 9 days to hatch). Click to view more information from our school website
    Our school nurse, Ms. Rafifar, is with us every Thursday during school hours for any additional concerns or questions you may have.
