As San Benito County moves into the “Red Tier”, Spring Grove School is preparing to return to on-campus instruction in late October.
More information will be sent to parents in the coming days and weeks.
A message from Superintendent Mrs. Bernosky as of August 17th:
Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make the first day of school happen.
Teachers and staff were online or providing support to get our students connected in their online classes.
Parents/guardians and family support made sure the students were ready for learning.
Attendance and Engagement: Attendance will be taken for ALL students two times throughout the day. Attendance will be taken at 8:15 am after morning announcements and then again at their first class after lunch, 12:30PM. Students also need to go to the Google Classroom daily for assignments and due dates. When students turn in quality assignments through their Google Classroom, the teacher also knows that they are engaged in learning.
Lunch Drive Thru Pick Up: Students are to sign up for lunch during their 8:15 am class. Students in the ROAR program are to call the kitchen by 9:00 am to sign up for lunch as well. Lunch/breakfast pick up is daily between 11:30-12:30. Please be sure to pay for meals online or in the school office.
Support: Please refer to the grade level Google Sites (see the orange distance learning box) for more information. If your Chromebook is not working (camera, microphone, etc) please bring it to the school office between 7:45-3:30 for help.
Internet: You may park in our parking lot and use the school internet.
Thank you all for making distance learning work! We can do hard things.
Un mensaje de la Directora Sra. Bernosky a partir del 17 de agosto:
Gracias a todos los que trabajaron tan duro para que el primer día de clases fuera posible.
Los maestros y el personal estaban en línea o brindando apoyo para que nuestros estudiantes se conectaran en sus clases en línea.
Los padres / tutores y en algunos casos otros familiares se aseguraron de que los estudiantes estuvieran listos para aprender.
Asistencia y Participación: Se tomará la asistencia para TODOS los estudiantes dos veces durante el día. La asistencia se tomará a las 8:15 am después de los anuncios de la mañana y luego nuevamente en su primera clase después del almuerzo, a las 12:30 pm. Los estudiantes también deben ir a su Google Classroom todos los días para las tareas y las fechas de entrega. Cuando los estudiantes entregan tareas de calidad a través de Google Classroom, el maestro también sabe que están comprometidos con el aprendizaje.
Almuerzos para recoger por Drive Thru: Los estudiantes deben registrarse para el almuerzo con su maestro durante la clase de las 8:15 am. Los estudiantes en el programa ROAR deben llamar a la cocina antes de las 9:00 am para apuntarse para el almuerzo también. La recogida del almuerzo / desayuno es todos los días entre las 11: 30 am y las 12: 30 pm. Asegúrese de pagar las comidas en línea o en la oficina de la escuela.
Apoyo: consulte los sitios de Google del nivel de grado (consulte el cuadro naranja de aprendizaje a distancia) para obtener más información. Si su Chromebook no funciona (cámara, micrófono, etc.), tráigalo a la oficina de la escuela entre las 7: 45 am y las 3: 30 pm para obtener ayuda.
Internet: Puede estacionarse en nuestro estacionamiento y usar el Internet de la escuela.
¡Gracias a todos por hacer que el aprendizaje a distancia funcione! Juntos podemos hacer cosas por mas difíciles que sean!

Suicide Prevention Awareness
If you or someone you know is suicidal, get help immediately via 911, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK or the Crisis Text Line (text “HOME” to 741741). Suicide is preventable. Youth who are contemplating suicide frequently give warning signs. Do not be afraid to ask about suicidal thoughts. Never take warning signs lightly or promise to keep them secret.

By teaching and reinforcing academic behaviors and higher-level thinking at a young age, AVID Elementary teachers create a ripple effect in later grades. Elementary students develop the academic habits they will need to be successful in middle school, high school, and college, in an age-appropriate and challenging way. Children learn about organization, study skills, communication, and self-advocacy. AVID Elementary students take structured notes and answer and ask high-level questions that go beyond routine answers. Find out more about Spring Grove’s AVID Program.
Orton-Gillingham Trained Teachers
Orton-Gillingham is a highly structured approach that breaks reading and spelling down into smaller skills involving letters and sounds, and then building on these skills over time. It also was the first approach to use multi-sensory teaching strategies to teach reading, which is considered extremely effective for teaching students with dyslexia. Find out more about Spring Grove’s Orton-Gillingham Program.
